working on sunday

child who looks exactly like the kid from Bad Santa: What are you doing here on Mother’s Day!?

Me: I have to work. What are you doing here? Where’s your mother?

Kid: New Hampshire. I live in a foster home. (said in a matter of fact tone)

Me: My mother’s dead. (said in a spirit of one upsmanship.)

end of conversation.
