    Mission Impossible, Part 4

    , | Ogallala, NE, USA |

    (A customer is buying a file cabinet. ¬†As I’m taking it out for her, the cabinet falls off of the hand truck and the lock gets pushed in.)

    Me: “I’m very sorry, ma’am. The damage isn’t bad. Would you like us to fix it for you?”

    Customer: “I wanted to buy this undamaged!”

    Me: “Of course, we could put together a new one for you.”

    Customer: “I wanted this one.”

    Me: “So shall I take it back and have it repaired?”

    Customer: “I wanted it the way it was!”

    Me: “I understand that, but the damage has been done. If you like, we can refund your money.”

    Customer: “I don’t want a refund. ”

    Me: “Okay… what do you want to do?”

    Customer: “I wanted to buy this like it was.”

    Me: *getting frustrated* “Okay, so what do you want to do?”

    Customer: “I wanted to buy this cabinet like it was! Undamaged!”

    Me: “Well, once you decide what you want to do, you let me know.”

    (At this point, I take the cabinet into the back room and stay there. I never did find out what she did.)
