On my way back from work this week, I stopped by K-Mart to return some spraypaint. When planning the bookcase project, I thought I might use spraypaint instead of latex we had on hand. Latex carried the day, so my many cans of spraypaint were surplus to requirements.
At the customer service counter, the clerk asked, “Was there anything wrong with these?”
I replied, “No, I just bought way too much spraypaint.”
He continued processing the return. Since I was wearing a cardigan/dress combo, I added helpfully, “I recently became much more efficient in my tagging.”
And a bit more dead silence.
Then, “So…you didn’t use these or anything?”
