October Theme Of The Month: Halloween!

Causing Infractions

| Iowa, USA | Math & Science, Top

(I work in a grocery store meat department. I’m helping a customer who is wanting items packaged specifically, like six steaks in two packages of three. She has been talking to me with a very condescending tone like I’m stupid. I am a science major in college.)

Customer: “Can I get two packages of four rib eyes?”

(I wrap the steaks in two packages and give them to her.)

Customer: “You can add, subtract, and multiply, but can you divide?”

Me: “I can divide, differentiate, integrate, and do logarithms, just to name some of what I can do.”

(Her face goes pale and her tone completely changes the rest of the time I have to deal with her. She leaves in a hurry.)
