Random Thoughts: Really, lady?

Customer: Do you have any rock salt?

Me: No, I’m sorry; the only thing I have is…

Customer: Just show me what you’ve got!

~ I walk the customer to our product. ~

Me: This is the only thing I have. It works really well, and you don’t have to use very…

Customer: No, I’ve got that!! What I’m looking for is rock salt!


Is it just me?

Am I the crazy one?

    • I had another one the other day, a guy looking for athletic tape. We call ours “sports tape”, and I suggest that it’s the same thing. He’s really impatient and already practically yelling at me because we don’t have anything specifically labelled “athletic tape”. And he says, really condescendingly, “My dad’s an orthopedic Dr. and he uses athletic tape all the time, it’s not the same thing.” Of course he never looked at the packages to see all the different ones were or anything. He couldn’t even tell me if athletic tape was cloth or paper or anything about it to help me help him. He just wanted “ATHLETIC TAPE”. And to yell at a sales clerk, I guess.

    We sold Beanie Babies at the toy store I worked at. Every single person who collected those infernal things was crazy as a loon. Every. Single. One.

  3. I worked at a bakery and a customer poked hid head in the door and asked, “Can I have a date…. …. … SQUARE?”

    He was in his 20s, but should have been 87.

  4. Boots,
    Whenever I ask: Is it just me? Am I the crazy one? Sometimes the answer is yes 🙂

    Most people are fairly crazy across the board given the right circumstances. Some do decompensate rather easily though. Next time just say, “oh, I think I know what you’re looking for.” Then walk them over to the lawn mowers / snowblowers (depending on the season) canoes also make a nice statement or hemmarhoid cream if you feel like swinging past saucy and straight into wicked.

    • Yes, many times I’m afraid it really is me. And man would I like to be wicked from time to time! But alas, I like my paycheck better. 🙂

  5. Lol! I run events and ask myself the same question all the time. I once had someone come up to me to ask if I could cut off the balloons that were decorating our booth because his granddaughter wanted one. I explained it wasn’t possible and offered for him to come back at the end of the day and I could let him have the balloons then. I turned my back for one second and he had already whipped out his own scissors, snipped off a section of our balloons and walked off!
