So we’ve got this friend…
The best stories usually start out that way, huh? This time, it’s just a little funny.
So we’ve got this friend! He’s a year younger than me. He got married a year or two ago. Naturally, being the typical American couple, that means they’ve just bought a house and had a baby.
Our friend went to <unnamed box store> and had the baby seat sitting on the child seat in the cart. He made the common new dad mistake of putting items in the child seat next to the baby seat.
You know where this is going, don’t you?
So New Dad goes through the line, gets all his stuff on the conveyor belt, rings out and pays. He heads back out to the car, unloads the cart and picks Baby up to put him in the car, and there, staring at him from the place Baby’s seat just was is a bottle of mouthwash.
“I had to take it back and pay for it,” he said. “I couldn’t wash my mouth out with those lies.”
Okay, maybe you had to be there. I’m still laughing.
