    (I was working at the paint desk, and it was in my first day of being trained how to mix the paint using the codes on the color swatches.)

    Customer: “1 gallon of this color, please.” *hands me a forest green color swatch*

    Me: “Okay.”

    (I mix the paint, my manager watching the paint can comes out of the mixer and I pop the top off to make sure I didn’t screw up. And low and behold, the paint is gray, not even close to the the green he asked for.)

    Me: “I am sorry sir, I will have my manager re-do it for you. I am sorry about the wait.”

    Customer: “No, no, don’t worry about it…that color is close enough.” *takes can and walks off*

    My manager: *look of utter confusion*
