    (My mom and I are at a chain beauty supply store and I’ve finally broken down and decided to sign up for the rewards program. The clerk is asking me all the necessary questions.)

    Clerk: “Okay, so I need your birth date so you can get your eyebrows done for free on our birthday.”

    Me: “Oh, that’s awesome! July 17th.”

    Clerk: “Okay… that’s what, 5/17? Oh, wait… no, I’m so silly! 5 is June!”


    Me: *trying not to sound rude* “Actually, it’s 7/17.”

    Clerk: “What?!” *thinks for a moment* “Oh… oh my God! I’m too blonde for my own good.”
