Intelligence Abhors A Vacuum, Part 4

| SA, Australia | Crazy Requests

Customer: “I’m looking for this vacuum cleaner.”

(The customer points to a picture in our latest clearance brochure.)

Me: “Oh, I’m sorry, but it’s sold out. I can take a rain-check if you like.”

Customer: “What do you mean it’s sold out? It’s in your catalogue!”

Me: “Yeah, but this sale started more than a week ago. They’re going for 80% off, so they’ve been pretty popular. All of our stores in the state are sold out, but we’re hoping to order more in if we get enough rain-checks.”

Customer: “I don’t understand. Where are they in this store?”

Me: “Uh, we don’t have any. They’re all gone. They sold out several days ago.”

Customer: “Why?”

Me: “Well… because other customers bought them I guess?”

Customer: “Why did they do that?”

Me: “Probably for the same reason you wanted to get one—to vacuum with.”

Customer: “Well, you shouldn’t let people buy them all!” *storms out*
