When Kids Break Out On Their Own

| Denver, CO, USA | Family & Kids, Top

(I am working in the toy section of the retail store. I receive a call around 8pm.)

Me: “Hello you’re through to [retailer], toys. How can I help you?”

(A quiet little girl, not much older than 10, answers.)

Girl: “Hi um…can you help me find something for my mommy?”

Me: “Sure, honey. What are you looking for?”

Girl: “Um, I need an exercise thing. It’s like, a bar that you put on the ground and pull on.”

(I’m not sure what she means. I walk over and scan the exercise section really quick, but see nothing like that.)

Me: “Sorry, honey. We don’t really have anything like that. I can tell you some stores you might find it at.”

Girl: “Okay.”

Me: “If you can put your mom on the phone, I’ll give her the store names.”

Girl: “My mommy’s not home. It’s just me and my little brother. We accidentally broke my mommy’s thing, and we’re trying to find where to get one so she won’t be mad.”

Customer: “Hello, I’d like to make a complaint.”

Me: “Okay, how can I help you?”

Customer: “I had my hair done with you, and I’m not happy.”

Me: “I’m terribly sorry about that. What appears to be the problem? I’d love to help you.”

Customer: “Well, I had blonde highlights, but it’s just gone very dark at the roots.”

(I take the customer’s name and have a look at her record.)

Me: “It says your last visit was four months ago.”

Customer: “Yeah, so?”

Customer: “Do you have any books on drawing people? My son loves to draw. I want to encourage him.”

Me: “This one is really good for understanding anatomy. It uses examples from classical art.”

Customer: *very snidely* “I could do without all the nudity. It’s not very Christian.”

Me: “That’s the Sistine Chapel ceiling, ma’am. It’s where the Pope preaches.”

Customer: “I’d like some big little batteries, please.”

(I gesture behind me.)

Customer: “Big-little ones.”

Me: “I’m sorry, I don’t follow.”

Customer: “You know, you’ve got little-little ones, then little-big ones, then big-little ones, then big-big ones. You know?”

Me: “I’m sorry, you’re being very vague.”

Customer: “I just want some rechargeable big-little batteries.”

Me: “These are the only rechargeable batteries we do.”
