He Scolds Sea Shells By The Seafood Store

| Portland, ME, USA | Uncategorized

(A customer walks up to me with a box of popcorn shrimp.)

Customer: “Excuse me, is this okay for someone with a shell fish allergy? My daughter is highly allergic to shell fish.”

Me: “I’m sorry, sir, but shrimp are shell fish. Maybe you should get popcorn chicken instead?”

Customer: “But it says it’s popcorn shrimp! That means that the shell is made of popcorn and not an actual shell. In that case, it would no longer be a shell fish and only seafood, right?

Me: “Sir, shrimp has a shell, so it is a shell fish. The shells are not made out of popcorn.”

Customer: “LIES!” *storms off, but thankfully leaves the box*
