    A Bounty Of Advice Puts A Bounce In Your Step

    | Illinois, USA | Uncategorized

    (An elderly male customer comes up to me at work and shows me his shopping list.)

    Customer: “Do you carry these dryer sheets?”

    (He shows me the list, which reads “Bounty sheets.”)

    Me: “Sir, Bounty doesn’t make dryer sheets. I think you mean Bounce.”

    Customer: “My wife wrote it.”

    Me: “Well, I’m sure she just made a mistake.” *I show him our selection of dryer sheets* “As you can see, we don’t carry Bounty. I’m sure she meant Bounce.”

    Customer: “Do you think another store would have them?”

    Me: “No, sir, I promise you it would be a wasted trip. Bounty doesn’t make dryer sheets. They only do paper towels and napkins. My best guess is that your wife meant Bounce.”

    Customer: “Okay, but if she yells at me, I’m blaming you.”

    Me: *laughing* “Go right ahead.”

    (The customer buys Bounce. I see him a week later.)

    Customer: “You were right about the dryer sheets! Thanks for making me look smart!”

    (I made a new best friend that day!)
