Top 20 Things I Hear From Cashiers When Buying Pregnancy Tests

“I hope it’s positive. Or negative. I don’t know your life.”

“Hope you get your answer either way.”

“Don’t you already have five kids?”

“I thought you already had one of each. You know, a boy and a girl?”

“I never needed these. I could just always tell.”

“Are you actually trying?”

“Don’t you have a disabled kid?”

“Is this your first? My sister just had her first baby.”

“I hate selling these things.”

“May the odds be ever in your favor. Like The Hunger Games. You could name it Katniss if it’s a girl.”

“I had both my children naturally with no drugs at all.”

“You should do that pencil test.”

“Don’t you already have four kids?”

“Will they let you have another c-section?”

“Did you ever do that Chinese calendar thing?”

“What will you name the baby if it’s a girl?”

“Do you already have a boy name picked out?”

“I can tell you’re pregnant. You’re already showing. Or maybe you’re just heavy.”

“Don’t you already have three kids?”

“My friend’s friend’s sister just had a baby.”

“May the force be with you.”
