Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:
Clerk: “Here’s your change.”
First Customer: “Hey, you shorted me.”
Clerk: “Sorry, my mistake, here you go.”
Clerk: “Here is your change.”
Second, Third, Fourth Customers: “Hey, you shorted me.”
Clerk: “Sorry, my mistake. Here you go.”
All Customers: “There is something going on here.”
Store Manager: “No, we just make a lot of innocent errors, always in our favor.”
Policeman: “Nothing to see here. Move along.”
Reporter: “Haters claimed without evidence that the store systematically short changes people.”
When you bring an allegation, they say “bring it to court”.
When you bring it to court, they say “it doesn’t meet the standard set in a law that was written by the party that benefits from the corruption”.
I suspect when and if that gets fixed, it’ll morph to “it wasn’t peer-reviewed”.
