October Theme Of The Month: Halloween!

Don’t Wake The Fishies

| Gainesville, FL, USA | Pets & Animals

(The phone rings. I am on the sales floor in front of our tanks of fish for sale.)

Caller: “Hi, I need you to get on the computer and look up what fish you have and how much they are.”

Me: “I’d be glad to help you out. I’m standing right in front of the fish, so I can actually tell you right now how much they are and how many we have.”

Caller: “No, I need you to get on the computer and look it up. I can’t easily come down to the store, so I want to see how many of each fish you have and what the price is.”

Me: “What species were you looking for? I can just look and tell you how many we have and what the price is. It will be faster and more accurate than the inventory program, which I don’t have access to anyway.”

Caller: “You can’t get on the computer?”

Me: “No, ma’am, but I’d be happy to just look at the fish themselves. I can see how many we have in stock and give you the prices. What species were you looking for?”

Caller: “Never mind!” *hangs up*

Me: *speechless*
