    So I went to stay in the US and started getting used to the American way of life...

    After a few months of staying there, I thought I should have a personal handgun as well.

    Yesterday I got my permit to carry a concealed weapon. So, today I went over to the local Gun shop to get a 9mm handgun for home/personal protection. 

    When I was ready to pay for the pistol and ammo, the cashier said, "Strip down, facing me." 

    I made her repeat what she had just said, because I thought I hadn't heard it right the first time. She duly repeated the line.

    Making a mental note to complain to the government about gun control wackos running amok, I did just as she had instructed.

    When the hysterical shrieking and alarms finally subsided, I found out she was referring to how I should place my credit card in the card reader.

    As a senior citizen, I do not get flustered often, but this time it took me a while to get my pants back on.

    I've been asked to shop elsewhere in the future. They need to make their instructions to seniors a little more clear.

    . And I just need to wear underwear more often.
