(I am stocking shelves in our birdseed section.)

Caller: “Excuse me?”

Me: “Yes?”

Caller: “I’m looking for something to keep turtles out of my birdfeeder.”

Me: “… What?”

Caller: “My birdfeeder? Those turtles keep pestering my birds and eating all the feed.”

Me: “How would… turtles? I’m afraid I don’t understand.”

Caller: “I…NEED…TO…KEEP…TURTLES…OUT! Is that so hard to understand?”

Me: “How on earth does a turtle even get onto a birdfeeder?!”

Caller: “Oh, did I say turtles? I meant squirrels! Now I see your confusion!”
