what do you want to call them?

at the latest ENK children's clothing trade show i went to, i overheard an elderly well-to-do woman who must have been a buyer, while standing over a sparkly t-shirt vendor lady inquire aggresively : "WELL WHAT DO YOU WANT TO CALL THEM, FAT KIDS?!"

The Facilities

Woman with huge glasses, a stocking cap, and lots 'o make-up: Are you a customer, or do you work here?

Store Owner: Yeah, i work here.

Woman: The facilities. You know, the facilities. Just wondering. I don't want to see your facilities for the purpose of using them. I just want a place to go through my wallet, you understand.
