    Pink Is The New Black

    Caller: “Is this the store that sells those little Christmas trees in different colors? Including the one in black?”

    Me: “Yes, it is. Are you interested in one?”

    Caller: “No! I want to complain! You’re selling black Christmas trees! That’s satanic!”

    Me: “I’m sorry. We sell lots of other colors, too. Pink, purple, neon green, silver.”

    Caller: “Your store is owned by the Devil! Black is the color of Satan! You should be ashamed!”

    Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am. We sell many different colors of trees and a lot of customers really like the black tree. I can assure you, it’s just a Christmas tree.”

    Caller: “Well, I don’t agree. I think black is satanic! Christmas trees should be green!”

    Me: “I understand and will inform our manager of your feelings. Is there anything else I can help you with?”

    Caller: “Oh, yes…can you put one of those pink Christmas trees on hold for me? I think they’re just so cute!”
