Directionally Challenged

Me: “Hello! How can I help you today?”

Customer: “Yeah, I need a Whopper, two large fries, and a shake.”

Me: “I’m sorry, sir, we don’t sell those here. Burger King is next door.”

Customer: “OH!”

(He walks into my dining room and promptly returns to the counter. He appears slightly confused.)

Me: “Can I help you, sir?”

Customer: “Yeah!¬†I thought you said Burger King was next door.”

Me: “Yes sir, it is.”

(I proceed to walk with him back to the dining room and point next door.)

Me: “If you come back this way and go through our side exit, you can walk right over to Burger King.”

Customer: “OH!”

(I follow him back to the area near the side door and point him in that direction. He appears to be on his way to a Whopper, two fries and a shake when I hear our restroom door open and close. Sure enough, moments later he appears at my counter again.)

Customer: “Why did you send me to the bathroom?!”

Me: “I’m sorry, sir. Please follow me.”

(I escort the gentleman out the side door and tell him Burger King is next door.)

Customer: “OH!¬†Thank you!”

(He starts walking toward the front of both my building and Burger King. I feel confident he is going to get there. I was wrong. He walks around my building and through the parking lot, and is last seen heading towards an empty lot and the railroad tracks.)
