Of balloons and explosions

At Walmart, I am looking for something in the party aisle and there is an old-woman-Walmart-employee also rearranging stuff in the same aisle.

Me: Excuse me… Hi! I was wondering if you have any balloon pumps?
She: Bombs?

Ah, so here’s the deal. Inside the lady’s head, I am a brown Indian… sorry, brown UNSHAVEN Indian – possibly a terr0ri$t, shopping for bombs in Walmart. And on top of that I am asking a Walmart employee to help me find some.

Damn racist woman.

    That’s funny! Surprisingly, wal-mart employees are the most tolerant I’ve seen around here! How about using apna standard ‘blowing into the balloon’ technique?

    @SasgittalSection: Yeah! But then you never know. May be she heard that I was asking for bombs…

    @Deepika: Why the balloon pump? Long story. It involves cleaning my camera and trying to fix it. 🙂 It’s got nothing to do with balloons. Or at least that was not the original intention!

    I know it is too late, but you can actually get something from Office Depot, called Clean Duster or something like that. It is used for cleaning dust off laptops (the fans, keyboards etc). You could have used that for the stuff you were trying to do.
