    Righteousness And Hyprocisy, Sitting In A Tree

    | Michigan, USA |

    (I was ringing this ladies order up and the entire order consisted of chicken, pork chops, t-bones and rib eyes.)

    Me: “Okay, ma’am. Your total is going to be [over $200].”

    Customer: “Now before I pay you, I have to say something…”

    Me: “Okay?”

    Customer: “I know this has no reflection on you and you more than likely can’t do anything about it, but ***** has no right to sell live animals.”

    Me: “Okay, ma’am.”

    (I start chuckling a little. We only sell live gold fish as feeder fish for people’s piranhas and Oscars.)

    Customer: “Well, what on earth can be so funny about me saying that?”

    Me: “Weeelllll, you really had no problem buying the dead animals we sell.”

    Customer: “As a charter member of PETA, I resent everything you just said to me. Not only does this store sell live animals, but it sells dead ones too?”

    Me: “Well, yes, ma’am. We sell pork, chicken, beef, bison, and several different types of fish.”

    Customer: “And you see no problem with this?!”

    Me: “Well you see, ma’am, as a card carrying member of the NRA, the only problem I can see is that they don’t also offer to cook it for me too.”

    (She stormed off without ever paying for her stuff. My manager wound up writing me up for being less than courteous.)
