Mind Over Biodegradable Matter

| New York City, NY, USA | Uncategorized

(I work in a very environmentally conscious salon. We provide mugs for people to use for their coffee so that no garbage is created.)

Me: “Hi! My name is ***. I’m going to be cutting your hair today. Tell me what you would like to–”

Customer: “Do you have a styrofoam cup?”

Me: “We have mugs right here. would you like some coffee?”

Customer: “Are you crazy? I can’t use a public mug, I’m a doctor! Do you even know what kind of germs are on those mugs?!”

Me: “I assure you that the mugs are perfectly clean. Also, we don’t believe in using styrofoam because it is bad for the environment.”

Customer: “Are you for real? You don’t have a styrofoam cup anywhere in this whole place?”

Me: “Yes, I’m sure.”

(I get her away from the coffee discussion and start cutting her hair and making small talk.)

Me: “So, what kind of doctor are you?”

Customer: “A psychiatrist.”
