Cut This One Down To Size

| Auckland, New Zealand | Extra Stupid, Language & Words

(I work in a clothing store with the basic sizes, S, M, and L.)

Me: “Can I help you with anything today?”

Customer: “Yes, I’m wanting a plain top for my dad in ‘men’s.'”

Me: “Certainly. What size were you looking for?”

Customer: “Men’s.”

Me: “Um, what size?”

Customer: “Men’s!”

Me: “Were you looking for a medium, by any chance?”

Customer: “MEN’S! MEN’S! WHY DO I HAVE TO REPEAT MYSELF!?”

(I head out the back and grab a medium anyway.)

Me: “We have a ‘M’ here for you.”

Customer: “SEE! That wasn’t so hard was it!?”
