    Should Take Stock Of Their Stupidity

    | Ottawa, ON, Canada | At The Checkout, Extra Stupid

    Customer: “Excuse me; do you have this item in a smaller size?”

    Me: *checking computer* “Unfortunately we don’t, but [other location 15 minutes away] is showing several. Would you like us to bring one over for you within the next couple of days? Or, if you like, we can call and have them hold it if you want to go there.”

    Customer: “We were there two weeks ago and they didn’t have it. Your computer must be wrong.”

    Me: “I’ll of course call to confirm their totals, but since we get stock in all the time it is possible that they have received some between then and now.”

    Customer: “What do you mean, you ‘get stock all the time?’”

    Me: “Well, every once in a while we get shipments to replace anything we’ve sold out of, or to bring in new merchandise.”

    Customer: “That’s stupid.”
