    Deaf Defying Customers

    | WA, USA |

    (Please note, I am hearing impaired.)

    Customer: “Hello. Do you have any [brand] perfume?”

    Me: “No we don’t.”

    Customer: “But… but… I want it!”

    Me: “You could try one of the outlet stores. Currently this store does not carry it.”

    Customer: “Why don’t you call the store in Bellingham?”

    Me: “I could check online for you to see if we have it in stock in Bellingham, but the stores do not carry it.”

    Customer: *shouting* “Call the f***ing store!”

    Me: “I’m hearing impaired. I cannot talk on the phone.”

    Customer: “Just f***ing call them!”

    (I proceed to call the store, but because I cannot hear I am constantly asking the person on the other end to repeat what they are saying.)

    Customer: “What are you, deaf?!”

    Me: “Yes, actually.”

    *pause*

    Customer: “Oh.”
