A woman just returned a book about stone walls. Her son is a stonemason but the woman's husband apparently decided the son "has enough books" and "wouldn't appreciate it." So no problem, I un-charged her credit card. She got all agitated that the receipt didn't say "credit" on it; instead it says "return," which I explained means the same thing: the book purchase price will be placed back in her account, no harm no foul.

Woman: Well then. You have a good Christmas.
Me: Why thank you! You too.
Woman: It's our lord's birthday.
Me: (joking) I have heard that rumor.
Woman: It's not a rumor, it's a fact.
Me: I have heard that fact, then.
