October Theme Of The Month: Halloween!

Dead Parrot Sketch

| Phoenix, AZ, USA | Extra Stupid, Pets & Animals

(I work in a pet store. We offer a variety of animals, including birds.)

Customer: “Excuse me, could I ask you a question?”

Me: “Sure.”

Customer: “Do you have any red birds for sale?”

Me: “I’m afraid that all of the birds we have right now are green and blue, no red ones. I’m sorry.”

Customer: “Well, can’t you just make one red for me, then?”

Me: “No, ma’am, that’s not something we can do.”

Customer: “And why not, exactly? I think you’re just being lazy, and I have more than half a mind to call your manager!”

Me: “You could do that, but he can’t make the birds red either, sorry.”

(The customer storms off in a huff. She comes back later asking if it is safe to dip a bird in paint.)
