It’s Curtains For You

| CA, USA | Uncategorized

(I am walking the store. I see a woman digging through our curtain panels.)

Me: “Can I help you find something?”

Customer: “Yes, I’m looking for more of these curtains. You had them the other day, and I came back today to buy them.”

(She shows me a curtain. I realize she’s in the wrong section.)

Me: “Oh, okay. Those are actually over here.”

(I lead her over to where the panels should be, but the space is empty.)

Me: “I’m sorry, it looks like we’re out of stock. I can check the computer to be sure, but it looks like somebody else bought them.”

Customer: “No, nobody could have bought them.”

(She goes back to digging through the shelves.)

Me: “They wouldn’t be over there, though. If we had them in stock, they would be right here.”

Customer: “No, they wouldn’t. The other day when I was in here I hid them so no one else would buy them.”

Me: “You hid the panels?”

Customer: “Yes. So, can you help me find them?”
