So I went to the store to pick up ingredients for WASC that I will be baking over the weekend.
The cashier sees all 8 boxes of cake mix and asks "So you going to bake a cake?"
Me being a smarta** had to reply "Nope, just wanted to respackle the house".
(glad she found it funny too.)

Too funny. Just one of those 'DUH' questions.

I always get, "it looks like your gonna be making something???" when I am at the check put w/ 8+ boxes of cake mix. And then when I tell them I am doing a wedding cake or whatever my reply is, they look at me like I have 4 eyes or something....

I normally try to look seriously confused & say, 'Why would you think that?'. They always stop & look around like they have just rang up someone else's groceries on my bill. LOL! I think next time I might steal yours!

My husband loves to go with me when I have a lot to buy. 10 grocery bags later, he looks at the bag boy & asks if he can help us get these on our motorcycle. icon_eek.gificon_biggrin.gif

The boxes of cake mix are nothing..... when you really want to have some fun - go stock your trolley with 50 packets of condoms

Bet they don't ask you a thing! icon_razz.gificon_razz.gificon_twisted.gificon_biggrin.gificon_surprised.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

I just bought 6 cake mixes, 3 2lb bags of sugar and 18 eggs this week. I was sorta disappointed when the girl didn't ask me if I was making a cake or baking.

Guess she missed that day of training. icon_wink.gif

I would view it as a marketing opportunity. Just about every time I buy supplies at Whole Foods (we buy vegan chocolate chips and vegan margarine there in bulk) I get a remark from the cashier, I take that opportunity to hand the cashier and the bagger business cards.

This even led to a meeting with Whole Foods exploring a wholesale opportunity (although it didn't work out due to their standard 45% markup).

I always get the question "sheesh what are you going to do with all those marshmallows?" When I say "decorate cakes" they just look at me like I'm crazy. And you can't really stand there and explain that one to most people.

LOL! I don't make MMF (not yet anyway) so I've never had to explain that one. I can just see their faces and only imagine what they think the cake is going to look like with marshmallows all over it! ha ha!

I'd be tempted to tell them 'Miniature s'mores!' icon_lol.gif

ok, different topic but same idiotic type of questions:

I am writing a check at a local department store so I handed the cashier my driver license with it's "organ donor" sticker. She looks at my license then turns her gaze upon me and asks . . . "so, which organ did you donate?" to which I reply . . . "None yet icon_eek.gif !"
Or, here's another:
asked by a doctor, "when you watch tv, do you hear voices?" Reply: "only if the volume is turned up!"
