Me: “[Doctor’s] office, how can I help you today?”

Customer: “Hi, there! I was wondering if I could get an appointment for today?”

Me: “Most likely. What type of animal do you have?”

Customer: *noticeable pause* “I have a dog. I just need the shots to go overseas.”

Me: “How exciting! When are you traveling?”

Customer: “Tomorrow. I tried to get an appointment at the other doctor, but he couldn’t fit me in.”

Me: “Well, just for a vaccination, I think we can manage that around four p.m. today. Do you happen to know what shots your dog needs?”

Customer: “My dog?”

Me: “Yes…to go abroad.”

Customer: “Why would I give shots to my dog? He’s staying here. I need shots for my wife and me.”

Me: “Sir, this is a veterinarian’s office. We treat animals here.”

Customer: “But my flight’s tomorrow! Can’t you make an exception?”

Me: “Sir, that would be highly illegal. And we only carry shots designed for dogs. We don’t have the type you’d need.”

Customer: “Fine! I’m going to report you to the state!” *click*

(The phone rings a moment later.)

Me: “[Doctor’s] office, how can I help you today?”

Same Customer: “Um…my wife wants to know if you have dog boarding.”
