Candy Store #2
Posted On: 2022-04-06
Announcer: This skit takes place in a candy store.
Owner: [Working behind the counter, mumbling to himself]
Yep, yep, just like always, costs are up, and profits are down.
Boy: [entering] Hi, mister.
Owner: Hi, son. What would you like?
Boy: I'd like two bubble gums.
Owner: O.K. [reaching up on shelf] What else?
Boy: I'd like three gummy bears.
(Owner reaches to even higher shelves as boy adds to his list of likes.)
Owner: [running out of patience] All right, that's 75 cents.
Boy: Oh, I said I'd like them. I didn't say I wanted to pay for them.
[Owner chases Boy out of store]
(The success of this skit depends on the owner's exasperation increasing and his exaggerated reaching for candy jars farther and farther up the shelves.)
