    Phoney Request

    | Calgary, BC, Canada |

    (Our store phone rings. A customer answers it before I can get to it.)

    Customer: “Hello?”

    Me: “I’m sorry, that is the store phone. Please hand it over to me.”

    Customer: “Go away! I’m trying to have a conversation here!”

    (I step forward to take the phone away. I hear talking from the other end of the phone.)

    Caller: “Why, hello there! Can I order some tampons, some birth control pills, and a thong?”

    (Both the customer and caller are male. The customer gets embarrassed and thrusts the phone into my hands.)

    Me: “Sorry about that, sir. What would you like?”

    Caller: “Oh good, that idiot’s gone. Do you have any Metallica CDs in stock?”
