Me (getting home from the store): I'm back.
Kawaii, our new puppy. runs up, all excited and making this whimpering sound that could only be translated as, "Where were you?! I thought you were gone forever! I MISSED YOU!!! I might have peed a little." She then proceeds to run circles around and between my feet, making it almost impossible for me to walk.
Me: Jeez, Kawaii! I wasn't even gone for an hour. Last thing I need is another needy, clingy-
Mrs. C (who was studying at the dinner table at the time): I will stab you right in the eye!
She holds up her pen to show me she already has a weapon at hand.

Mrs. C: Oh, by the way, did I tell you one of my coworkers said they'd stab me the eye the other day?
Me: No. I'm not surprised, though. You say that to enough people so it makes sense that, eventually, someone'll say it back on you. What exactly did you do to cause that?

Me: Huh... So, just to recap, not only did you did you drive your supervisor to threaten you with bodily harm, but you got her to do it in front of customers. Congratulations! You've leveled up. Proceed to the next dungeon.

Mrs. C: It's no problem. The customer at the time just happened to be Psycho (one of Mrs. C's close friends).
Me: Oh. Well I guess Psycho's known you long enough to have heard you use your catch phrase. You've probably said it to her more than enough times too.
Mrs. C: Probably...
Me: Wait... Did your supervisor know your customer was one of your friends at the time?
Mrs. C: I... guess...
