Making A Soap Opera Out Of Soup

| WA, USA | Language & Words

(I am a grocery clerk at a local grocery store.)

Customer: “Can you tell me where your soup is? I have been looking forever. All that I can see is dish liquid.”

Me: “That is on aisle 8.”

Customer: “That is stupid! I have spent all this time on aisle 12! It’s false advertising to have a sign up if there is no soup on the aisle.”

Me: “Sir, that says ‘Soap.’ ‘Soup’ is on aisle 8.”

Customer: *turns bright red, glares and walks away*
