Do you have Dicks?

My sister is getting Tom's Christmas present at a sporting goods store and wanted to make sure that in case he didn't like it he could exchange it at a store in Seattle. So she and my mom were discussing the big chain sporting goods stores that they're familiar with.

My mom says, "Do you have Dicks here?"

My sister says, "Don't you mean Chicks, mom?"

Mom: "No, it's Dicks. We have quite a few Dicks in Illinois."

Sis: "Well there aren't any Dicks here!"

Me: "I don't think there are any Dicks in Seattle either."

Mom: "Really? They're everywhere by me."

Not what you want to hear out of your mother's mouth.

Big 5 it is.

I once called from the back of a video rental to the male customer service person, "Do you have "Balls"?" Of course, as soon as I said it, I realized what I had said. Luckily the CSR acted like was just the name of a movie! I suppose I wasn't the first to quiz him on the presence of his male parts! I do definitely need a much better verbal filter.

OK, it's sad when conversations like this between your family members don't even make me bat an eye anymore! ;-)

My mother in law once called a Carvel Ice-Cream store to order a "Cookie Puss" cake.

However, when they answered she said (true story):

"Hi. Do you have that pussy cake?"

I almost passed out.

On a side note, if you can tell me where I can get pussy cake, let me know.

Brings to mind when someone come into my office to ask for some adviice for his email. His first statement when he came into my office was "I have Cox online." Seeing this guy was one of the stranger folks working at my place of employment(but a good worker) I was at first taken back, but then realized he was referring to Cox cable and not a perverted website.

The foreman in the next office and I both laughed for several minutes.

You hear some interesting things teaching 1st grade..One day I was teaching a lesson about rhymes. A little girl came up to me and said "Is dick a word? You know like sick, pick, dick?" Since this wasn't an assignment their parents would see, I said yes and took the paper home and put it on my frig : )

All these comments reminds me of last year at Christmas. I took my daughter to a Christmas play at church and this older lady walked in with a large, rather obnixious fur hat. Maddie as staring at it and said "momma look at that furry hat" and the lady heard her and said..no joke..."its beaver, did you want to touch my beaver?"

We have Dicks Sporting Goods here.... I hate the name. It used to be called Galyan's. Galyan's was a MUCH better name.
