    | Belgium | At The Checkout, Crazy Requests

    (I started sewing a few years ago, and got good enough at it to make most of my clothes myself, which has resulted in a wardrobe consisting of some unusual prints. A regular customer comes up to me.)

    Customer: “I love your dress! You’re always wearing such special clothes! Do tell me where you shop!”

    Me: “Actually, I made this one myself. Thanks for the compliment!”

    Customer: “Really? That’s great! Can you make one for me?”

    Me: “Um… I have never made anything for someone else, and besides, I don’t have any of this fabric left, so I’m afraid I can’t do that!”

    (The customer suddenly gets angry.)

    Customer: “Now that’s just rude! Why would you do that? You’re just making pretty clothes for yourself so you can tell other people they will never have them!”

    (The customer slams the money on the counter, and leaves in a huff.)
