So I go to the store to buy my aunt a birthday gift, and bought her some ceramic bird (about my only choice, as everything else seemed to be a Christmas decoration, but that's besides the point). I take it up to the checkout counter, and upon seeing the bird, the clerk goes into having a random discussion about how her son has a bird feeder and buys bird feed, and he tried buying the non-usual bird seed that was a dollar cheaper, but the birds didn't eat it, so now he buys the brand that is a dollar more just so that the birds will eat it. And how she is mad because she thinks that he should just by the cheap brand, and if the birds don't like it, that's too bad for them. I think she was trying to get moral support or something, as she kept asking me whether I agree with her. It was the weirdest thing.
