Senior moment

Went over to the local Bass Pro Shop to get a small 9mm for home protection.

When I was ready to pay for the gun and bullets, the cashier said “Strip down, facing me.”

Making a mental note to complain to the NRA about the gun control wackos running amok, I did just as she had instructed.  

When the hysterical shrieking and alarms finally subsided, I found out she was referring to how I should place my credit card in the card reader!!!

I’ve been asked to shop elsewhere in the future.

They need to make their instructions to seniors a little clearer.

I still don’t think I looked that bad.

  1. Thanks for the laugh, Paul. It puts me in a better frame of mind for reading the news.

    I should really apologize for my short temper of late, but I have my cigarettes back, so things are returning to normal.

      1. I put the patch on, and I’m trying to quit. (but I took the patch off to smoke again for a couple days, and then I’m going back to the patch)

        The patch worked well for me long ago, but all it takes is one highly-stressful event and I don’t give a shite about quitting, and i want my cigarettes back.

        But I have to quit, for good, or I’ll be risking a heart attack or stroke real soon.

        1. Been smoking for 50 years JR. No adverse effects yet at 71. Seems the doctors, news media, and gov. want me to stop so there must be some healthy aspects to smoking IMHO. 🙂
          Just sayin.

          1. Come to think of it Enemy of the State, I wonder if smoking has a counter effect to C.T. s.

        2. Went that route a few times. Never took.

          I did, however, quit for 14 months once. Made up my mind, threw the butts in the trash, and never touched one that entire time.
