Never Send A Man…Period

| Seattle, WA, USA | Health & Body, Spouses & Partners, Uncategorized

(A male customer is in the feminine hygiene aisle and has requested to speak to a female employee.)

Me: “Hi, can I help you with something?”

Customer: *obviously embarrassed* “I need some ‘female products’.”

Me: “Okay, you’re in the right place. This is all our selection.”

Customer: “Really?” *points to the pads* “I don’t think these will work. They all look so small.”

Me: “Well, most women prefer that. But if you want something different, the tampons are right here as well.”

Customer: “Oh, gross. No, I would rather these but bigger, so they’ll work.”

Me: “This is really all we have.”

Customer: “Hmm, what about some diapers or something like that? Do you have those?”

Me: “What? Do you mean baby diapers? Sir, I really don’t think that’s what you want.”

Customer: “You’re right, they probably cost twice as much anyways. I think I’m going to tell my wife to come in after work and figure this out herself.”

Me: “I think that’s a very good idea, sir.”

Networking Not Working

Caller: “I hope this won’t take much time.”

Me: “It won’t, ma’am, it’s only a few simple steps. First of all, I need you to double click on My Computer.”

Caller: “Excuse me?”

Me: “Ma’am, our records show you running a Windows computer. Has that changed?”

Caller: “I don’t think so.”

Me: “Okay, now just double click on My Computer for me please.”

Caller: “How can I do that?”

Me: “It should be right there in front of you. Make sure all other windows are closed down and you should, hopefully, see it in the top left corner.”

Caller: “How am I suppose to click on your computer? You must be like hundreds of miles away!”
