October Theme Of The Month: Halloween!

Belaboring The Flavoring

| CA, USA | Uncategorized

Customer: “Excuse me.”

Me: “Yes?”

Customer: “You only have 28 different flavors of ice cream. You’re supposed to have 31 flavors.”

Me: “Ah, yes. The company dropped the ‘flavors’ thing over a decade ago. Some smaller stores have as few as 16. The larger store downtown has 40 flavors. I should point out we do have four flavors of frozen yogurt as well, so that’s 32.”

Customer: *angry* “That’s false advertising! Your sign says ’31 flavors’! You’re supposed to have 31 different flavors!”

Me: “Ma’am, like I said. They dropped ‘flavors’ from the logo and signs over a decade ago. This store is less than eight years old. If you can find something that says ’31 flavors’, I will give you a quart of ice cream.”

Customer: *pointing* “Right there! Are you blind? Thir-ty-one f-l-a-v-o-r-s!”

Me: “What portion of it says ‘flavors’?”

Customer: “It’s right there! Under the 31!”

Me: “Look at the sign. Tell me what it says.”

Customer: “I don’t need to look at the d*** sign to… oh.”

(She pauses.)

Customer: “Oh. Pint of mint chip, please.”
