    (I work at a retail greenhouse and we have had a severe rainstorm. Several shingles came crashing through the glass roof. My coworkers and I are waiting in the shed until the boss shows up. We are stopping people from entering the store.)

    Me: “Ma’am, I’m sorry. You can’t go in there.”

    Customer: “What? I just need to buy this flat of petunias.”

    Me: “I understand, but the roof is shattering in there. It’s not safe.”

    Customer: “You can’t stop me from going in. I risked my life driving here to get these petunias. I’m going in.”

    (She goes in the store, where glass is still shattering. We can see her through the glass doors waiting at the register. After a minute she comes out furious.)

    Customer: “Which one of you is the cashier? Can’t you see I’m waiting to pay?!”

    Me: “Ma’am, we can’t go back in. The roof is shattering and it is dangerous.”

    Customer: “You’re all a bunch of wimps! I risked my life getting here. I need to buy these petunias!”
