I was accompanying my mom in a women’s clothing store in a local mall.


Mom: It says here that this shirt is 50% polyester.

Me (cheeky smile): Does that mean the shirt shrinks by 50% in the wash?

Random Lady: That was pretty good.

Whilst shopping at costco


Mom: Go get some 2%

Me: heaves a gallon into the air, gently lowers it into the cart

Mom: Horrified

Random Lady: You should’ve seen the look on your [my mom’s] face

I thank these strangers for the ego boost.
