So my wife and I went to the local Kmart today in hopes of finding a Joe (I know, I know...WM and Target haven't restocked in at least a month). Anyway, I found a foil Flash, so I'm like "Heck yeah!" I brought it up to pay for it, and this conversation happened:
(cashier) "G.I. Joe, huh?"
(me) "Yup, I'm a collector."
(cashier) *Skeptical look* "So you're just a big kid, huh?"
(me) "Yup, I don't deny it."
(poptart13) "I don't mind at all, it's a lot better than some other things he could be into."
(cashier) "Yeah, I guess that's true. You want to donate to the March of Dimes today?"
(poptart13) "Sure, why not a dollar?"
(cashier) "Alright, I'm gonna put GI Joe down."
She actually wrote it on the little paper they hang up, too. So we're proud to have helped a charity in the name of GI Joe. I encourage everyone to do the same.

I would have distracted her with a flash light on the wall.
Alley Viper attached to the Strike Team Urban Division 82nd.
Cobra wants you! I'm looking for some ruthless Vipers to fill the ranks. Joes need not apply.
