(I’m walking back from lunch when a girl from the IT class comes up to talk to me. This girl happens to be a very vocal feminist.)
IT Girl: “Hey, [My name]! I just heard they’re starting to have an honor grad for the IT classes like they used to! There’s never been a female IT honor grad, so I’ve been trying to talk to the instructors about awarding it to one of us this time so that it’s fair.”
Me: “Let me get this straight. In honor of equality, you think they should award a female as honor grad even if she’s not the top student, instead of a male who is? Yeah, that seems totally logical.”
IT Girl: *not getting the sarcasm dripping from my voice* “Yeah! I knew you’d agree with me, because you’re such a strong female, too!”

(It’s Halloween, and I’m dressed up as a vampire and wearing a pentacle necklace. The crew is planning on going out after work for a party.)
Me: “Did you find everything you needed tonight?”
Customer: “Yes, thank you. Can I just say that I think it was very nice of them to let you all dress up for tonight? I really like what you have on.”
Me: “Thank you, ma’am.”
Customer: “But don’t you think you took it a little too far?”
Me: “Uh… took what too far?”
Customer: “Well I understand that you’re supposed to be some type of vampire, but don’t you think that necklace is taking it too far?”
Me: “Oh, that. That’s not part of my costume, I always wear that.”
Customer: *loudly* “Well if you want to risk burning in H*** for wearing that devil worshiping symbol, that’s just fine with me… but they shouldn’t be letting you wear that here in a public place!”
Me: *sarcastically* “Well, why shouldn’t they let me wear it? After all, we all practice together and I’m the high priestess. In fact as soon as you leave, we’re gonna close up the store, start a bonfire in the parking lot, and then dance naked around it until dawn.”
Customer, to one of my managers: “Aren’t you going to do anything about what she said to me?”
Manager #1: “Yes, ma’am. As soon as you leave, we’re going to close the store.”
Customer: “THAT’S IT?!”
Manager #2: “Of course not, ma’am. You heard the rest of our… plans.”
(And with the kind of timing that only happens once in a lifetime, a stock boy unwittingly walks out of the back room while taking his uniform shirt off at the same time. The customer practically runs out of the store.)

Reblogging just for the last princess <3
This is priceless and nerddom is universal.
“Ayn Rand began writing her magnum opus, ATLAS SHRUGGED, on September 2, 1946. September 2 is also the day of the year on which the story opens, and a date which is noted several times throughout the novel.”
Happy Atlas Shrugged Day!

Happy Birthday to the lovely & talented, Helena Bonham Carter!
