November Theme Of The Month: Black Friday!

Lost In No Translation, Part 3

| USA | Language & Words

(I work in a large home improvement store and I’m the only female in the department. A customer pulls up on his motorcycle and parks it on the sidewalk outside the door, then staggers inside, making a beeline to me despite all the other sales people.)

Customer: *in a loud drunken slur* “Where do you keep your nipples?”

Me: “Excuse me?”

Customer: “Your nipples. Where do you keep your nipples?”

Me: “I’m not sure I understand what you’re looking for.”

Customer: *getting louder* “Where do you keep your nipples?! The titties you mash to start your engine!”

Me: “Oh, the fuel bulbs are kept over here.”

(The customer purchases them and leaves. The other associates actually gave me applause for the diplomatic interpretation of his drunken demands.)
