    Bipartisan Barware

    | Rhode Island, USA | Uncategorized

    Customer: “You used to carry those drinking glasses that are shaped like soda pop bottles. ¬†Do you still have them?”

    Me: “I believe so. Let me check with that department.”

    Associate, over walkie talkie: “Yes, we do have some. They’re in the barware section.”

    Me, to customer: “Ok, ma’am, we do have some–”

    Customer: “No, I was just back there, and you only have the really big ones and the ones that are too small. ¬†You used to have the medium-sized ones that are just right. ¬†I told the boy back there that I needed the medium-sized ones.”

    Me: “So… you already spoke to the department associate?”

    Customer: “Yes, and he said that you don’t have them anymore. But I know that you do, because I saw Hillary Clinton drinking from one of them on the debates last night!”

    Me, to the associate: “Are we out of stock on those glasses, or are they discontinued?”

    Associate: “Discontinued. ¬†I already spoke to someone about these glasses…”

    Me, to customer: “Ma’am, I’m sorry, but it looks like we’re not going to be carrying that particular size anymore–

    Customer: “That’s bulls***! He’s lying!”

    Me: “Umm, excuse me?”

    Customer: “He’s lying! ¬†I saw Hillary Clinton drinking out of one of these g**d*** glasses last night on the debate! And you’re trying to tell me that they don’t make them anymore?! ¬†I don’t think so. ¬†Why are you all lying?! ¬†If Hillary Clinton can drink out of one of these glasses, then they obviously are still making them!”

    Me: “Ma’am, I’m not saying that they’re not being made anymore. ¬†I’m saying that we’re no longer carrying that particular size in our store, that’s all.”

    Customer: “Lies!¬†I bet if Hillary Clinton came in here and asked for those glasses, you people would get off your a**es and check the back room for her!”

    Me: “Have a nice night, ma’am.”
