    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.”
