    Objects May Be Larger Than They Appear

    | Winter Park, FL, USA |

    Me: “Hi, how can I help you today?”

    Customer: “I’m fine. Yes. I would like to return this.” *sets down a family-sized box of cereal*

    Me: “All right…do you have your receipt?”

    Customer: “Yes, of course. I just bought it yesterday.”

    Me: “Great! Oh, was there anything wrong with the item?”

    Customer: “Why, yes there was. It didn’t fit in my pantry!”

    Me: “Uh…”

    Customer: “Yes, it was too big! I bought it because it was such a good deal, and I brought it home and it didn’t fit! You really should put sizes on there or something.”

    (While listening to her I place a red defect sticker above the bar code on the box.)

    Customer: “There isn’t anything wrong with the cereal! I didn’t even open it!”

    Me: “But you took it home, and once food has been brought home, I have to defect it out if you’re returning it.”

    Customer: “What a waste!”

    Me: “Would you like this back on the card you paid with, or in cash?”

    Customer: “Cash, dear – I need some more cereal!”

    Me: *facepalm*
