Give people permission to use their brains

We were at the local Babies-R-Us for some birthday photos for the eldest child. He lets us know that he's thirsty. My wife informs me she forgot to bring water. No problem, just get some from the convenience cooler at the checkout line, that's what it's for.

So the cashier scans my one 20 oz. bottle of water, and asks, "Is this for a registry or do you need a gift receipt?"

Wow, I just wish I had thought of something snappy and sarcastic to say in response. I just said, "no."
