On presents and pressure.

Yesterday I went to Babies R Us to buy a gift. As I was checking out, the following conversation happened.

Saleswoman: Do you have a rewards card?

Me: Oh…no.

Saleswoman: *pause* Do you want one?

Me: *nervous laugh* Ah…no, thanks.

Saleswoman: *pause coupled with a meaningful look* Are you sure?

Me: Um…I think I’ll wait a while for that one.

Saleswoman: Hm.

GET OFF MY BACK, PUSHY SALESWOMAN.
