    Mind Over Biodegradable Matter

    | New York City, NY, USA |

    (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.”
