Driving You Crazy

| Columbus, OH, USA | Top

(A teenage customer comes up to our parts counter.)

Customer: “I need brakes for my car.”

Me: “No problem. What kind of car is it?”

Customer: “A Honda.”

Me: “Okay, what model?”

(She sighs dramatically and then whips out her cell.)

Customer: “Daddy, what model is my Honda?” *hangs up* “Civic.”

(I try to catch her before she hangs up.)

Me: “Is that a DX, EX or LX?”

Customer: “God!” *dials again* “Daddy, is that a DX or whatever? No, I drove it today.” *to me* “He says it’s an LX.”

Me: “Standard or automatic?”

Customer: *starts dialing*

Me: “Ma’am, if your car is here, I can come out and look this information up so you don’t have to.”

Customer: “Nah, I don’t want you to have to go to all that trouble!”

(She discovers it is an automatic, and hangs up again.)

Me: “Last question. Is that a 2-door or 4-door?”

Customer: “Sheesh!”

(She dials her phone, and repeats the question.)

Customer: “Oh.” *looks sheepish* “That was a really stupid question, wasn’t it?”
