Think before you react...

Had a funny thing happen the other day. My son, my Taurus, and I were at a local department store. We were in the shoe department. There was one other customer and a saleswoman at the cash register. As I was looking at some shoes I heard someone behind me and to my left say in a somewhat loud voice, “Do you have a gun?” It startled me but I did not react. I was thinking, how in the world did he know? I slowly turned around to my left and saw a store employee (suit and tie and store badge) walking into the department. I did not say anything, figuring that it would be best for him to continue the conversation. He walked right past me and up to the saleswoman at the cash register. He there retrieved “the gun” - one of those pistol-looking scanners they use to check price tags – and walked off to another department. My son later told me that when he heard the man ask the question he thought, “Oh great, what’s my dad done now?”

Yes, "pricing guns", and "scanning guns", are phrases I used to get a kick out of in my short time in retail.
