Smelling A Bargain

| CT, USA |

Customer: “Excuse me, do you have any of the regular fish oil pills?”

Me: “No, I don’t have those. But we’ve got the odorless pills here.”

Customer: “Thanks anyway. I really just wanted the regular ones.”

Me: “Oh, but these are great. They’ve got no odor at all. If you take these, you won’t smell of fish!”

Customer: “You mean I smell of fish?! Oh my God! I didn’t know! Nobody told me! I don’t believe I smell of fish!”

Me: “Uh, that’s not what I meant.”

Customer: “I didn’t know I smell of fish! Oh, this is awful!”

(The customer opens his phone, dialing.)

Customer, on phone: “Mom? It’s me. Why didn’t you tell me I smell of fish? Of course I do! The guy at the store just said I need to take the odorless pills because I smell of fish!”

Me: *head in hands* “No, wait!”

Customer: “I can’t believe even you didn’t tell me! I feel awful now! How long until it goes away?”
