Karen, with 7 year old son in tow, makes a trip to Best Buy. Hilarity Ensues. She hopes a jury won’t convict her but she may be willing to take the chance. Check her out over at Some Have Hats.

And that brings me to the point of this post, which is to give a little friendly advice to teenagers who work in retail. Let’s call this lesson “How to Avoid Being Snarled At by a Woman with a Small Child.”

So here comes Bob the friendly Best Buy Guy. Can he help us?

Me: No thanks, we’re fine.
Caleb: (semi-crying) I’m sorry I’m sorry I’m sorry I’m sorry I’ll never do it again I swear I’m sorry I’m sorry…
Bob: Were you looking for a video game?
Me: We were, but we changed our minds. Thanks anyway.
Caleb: NOOOOO!!!! I’m sorry, I mean it, I’m really sorry, I just want one…etc.

Bob starts away, but then, out of the corner of my eye, I see him head back toward us. This can’t be good, thinks I.

To find out Bob’s fate, go check her out over at Some Have Hats.
