November Theme Of The Month: Black Friday!

Red Grapes Or Wrath

| Toronto, Canada | At The Checkout, Food & Drink

(It is 9:30 pm on a Friday night. Note that the store closes at 10 pm.)

Customer: “Hi, do you have any more red grapes? These ones look pretty rough.”

Me: “No, sorry sir, but we’re all sold out of grapes.”

Customer: “Oh, really? I think you’re lying. Get me some more grapes from the back.”

Me: “Sir, I can assure you that if there were any more grapes, I’d have displayed them already.”

Customer: “Bull! You just don’t want to bring me any so you can go home early!”

Me: “No, we just don’t have any left. Our shipment comes in at 9:30 am tomorrow.”

Customer: “What? No, it doesn’t. There aren’t any delivery trucks here at 9:30!”

Me: “Sir, I’m not lying to you, so I’d appreciate if you stopped accusing me of doing so.”

Customer: “Let me talk to your manager! I bet he has some grapes in the back!”

Me: “Look, sir. My manager has gone home for the night. I am certain that there is no secret back room that only he has access too.”

Customer: “Well, fine! This is the last time I shop here!”

(He reluctantly buys a bag of green grapes instead and walks away.)
