Cashiered

Jason glared at the line. “I haven't had this much fun since I fed my brother to the pigs.”

A grandmotherly-type lady turned. “What a thing to say!”

“I don’t have a brother.”

“Of course not. You fed him to the pigs!”

“It’s a saying.”

“Wait!”

“You didn’t call?”

“You’re not the only smartass here.”

Jason blushed as Emily “high-fived” her.
