Yeah.  Some stores have actually banned the sale of tp and eggs to minors around Halloween.   She's probably not wrong, though.  Just terrible execution.

And I thought getting an apple or toothpaste or loose change was bad.....

Maybe the guy passing that out just doesn't like trick or treaters and is hoping to repel them on future Halloweens.

Me buying a hat for my wife today:

"Do you have that hat in yellow?"

"No."

"Well, then what's that?"

"That's mustard."

That's your male colour perception for you.

Although, the clerk was male too.

He also has a product description list and inventory record. ;)

I sometimes wonder if it's possible to be sort of transgendered in regards to things like colour perception: I apparently can perceive graduations of colour in ways that typically only women are supposed to (this isn't a societally derived gender role it's something found in studies of colour perception).

Even if you perceive a complete difference between yellow and mustard, if someone asked for yellow, the least you could do is say, "Nope, no yellow, but we do have mustard."

Ah well that's because he's a sales associate....

Now see, to me, that hat's butternut.

And yeah I'd bet the shirt was salmon too, sounds like it.

Seeing the hat next to my gif, I would say that the color is actually "Pad Thai"

Got a perfect score.  What do I win?

I would think that test is highly dependent on how well calibrated your monitor is.  I run test patterns once in a while to make sure mine is.
