He rushed in and asked me...

When I asked him what he meant he only repeated himself louder and more frantically.
When I told him that we did not have "batmobile" he rolled his eyes and stormed
out of the shop. I have no idea what the plastic fork was for.

  2. It's a way a life. He was obviously inquiring after you philosophically.

  3. Nice. Sounds like when I used to work at a coffee shop. We had refillable mugs that we sold. Buy a mug, get refills for 50 cents.

    One evening a customer walked in with one of these mugs, and came to the counter. I said, "Can I help you?"

    "CLONED HYPOCRITES!!!!"

    I took a step back. "Excuse me?"

    "CLONED HYPOCRITES, ALL OF THEM!!!"

    I blinked. "Sir...I don't have any idea what the Hell you're talking about."

    Then he got a look of abject horror on his face. I suppose he then realized I must've been a cloned hypocrite. He slammed his mug down on the counter and shouted, "NEVER MIND! JUST FILL THIS WITH COFFEE!"

    "...decaf?"

  7. Maybe he needed to Bat-Evidence computer from the Batmobile to get DNA off the fork, because a note found near it was from a mad man threatening to poison the orphanage!

    How does it feel to kill all those orphans?!

    I bet it feels pretty alright.

  9. HAHAHAHA! I don't know what I love more about this blog, the awesome stuff these people say or the fact that some of these situations happened the exact same way to me when I used to work in a comic shop.

  11. If I had to guess, he's trying to get in Christmas shopping early and wanted to buy a Batmobile toy and figured a comic book shop would have it, and his frustration and inability to find it had just bubbled to the point where he was just saying "BATMOBILE, DO YOU HAS IT?!" and not realizing that he needed other words in his sentence for it to make sense.

  14. If you had given the appropriate response-phrase, "Batmobile not for sale," he would have handed over the secret documents.
