This interesting sign posted in a store window sparked the following (actual) conversation.
Rebekah: What's a Carpet-Bagger?
Emily: Not to be smart, but someone who carries a carpet bag!
R: Well, why don't they want people with carpet bags in their store?
Sara: Because that makes it easier for people to steal! They can walk right in and stick stuff in their bags!
R: But how is it no one notices?
S: Well, that's why solicitors aren't allowed in either. If they're working together, the solicitor can distract the propreitor while the carpetbagger does the job!
R: Oh, I see!
Sadly, I'm really not sure what
they mean by "carpet-bagger", but we're satisfied with this. :-)
