    Annoying Customers Are A Sure Thing

    | Sydney, NSW, Australia | Bad Behavior, Home Improvement, Theme Of The Month

    (We have a customer who always comes in looking for things to buy for wedding presents and then a week or two later would return them. She is a real time waster.)

    Customer: “I need this in queen size. It’s for a wedding present.”

    Me: “Have you looked on the lower shelf of the table? There might be one there.”

    Customer: “You do it. I can’t bend.”

    Me: *gets down to check* “No, sorry. There’s none here.”

    Customer: *cocking her head sideways, with what she thinks is a cute look* “Are you sure?”

    Me: “I’ll double check with someone else.” *to coworker* “Do we have any more of this design in queen?”

    Coworker: *in full hearing of the customer* “No, and we can’t get anymore in. They are discontinued.”

    Me: *turning to customer* “Sorry, we don’t have any left.”

    Customer: *as always, with what she thinks is a cute look on her face, she cocks her head sideways* “Are you sure?”

    Me: “You just heard me ask for you and heard the answer. Yes, I am sure.”

    (After what seemed ages she finally bought something else and then two weeks later returned it. As usual, the recipient’s bed was the wrong size and she had already bought them something else.)
