Pretentiousness level: High
Tonight at work, a woman with two young children approached the cash desk. Her son held a pack of gum in his hand. She noticed it, jerked it out of his hands, looked at the package, and loudly proclaimed, “Oh, NO! No no. It has sorbitol in it. You’re not getting that.”
“Why not?” the child asked innocently.
“Because sorbitol is bad for you.”
And then, she instead bought 12 packs of Smarties, a bag of Gummy Worms, and a pack of M&Ms for her sons named Rylen and Nolan.
