It was just her and the kids, and they had had a great Christmas. She thought her younger son would be excited by the fireworks, so she’d let him open it, but after he had ripped off the wrapping paper and seen what it was, he didn’t really say anything about it. She was sitting across the room from him, and asked him what the present was that Santa had gotten him. He mumbled something and set the box aside. She was a little disappointed that he wasn’t more excited, but she didn’t say anything and they continued ripping open gifts.Be Careful What You Demand, Because We Might Give It To You
A guy came in to pick up some fireworks. He was having a party and wanted to put on an impressive show for his friends.

In fact, on a couple of items, we were about half of price. Amazingly, he didn’t seem happy about it, but he kept shopping.
One evening, a guy literally runs into the tent and shoves $300 into my hands.
GUY: “I need $300 of the best stuff you got, fast.”
GUY: “I need to be back at my house in less than five minutes. They’re watching me.”
ME: (Oookayyyy?!?) “Do you want smaller stuff that lasts longer, or do you want larger stuff that's more impressive?”
GUY: “I want the boom!”
