Someone Has Had A Bit Too Much Coffee

| Melbourne, QLD, Australia | Bizarre, Food & Drink

(It’s early in the morning, and so the home-wares store that I work in is pretty quiet at the moment. It is so quiet, that I can hear this customer from the other end of the store as she walks in, getting progressively louder as she approaches me.)

Customer: “…coffee cups, coffee cups, coffee cups, coffee cups, coffee cups…”

(Hearing this, I turn around to see a middle aged woman and her 10-year-old son looking at me expectantly, still repeating ‘coffee cups’ as she gets closer.)

Me: “Um, was there something I can help you with tod—”

Customer: “…coffee cups, coffee cups, coffee cups…”

Me: *trying my best to act normal* “Sure… just on the shelf in the corner there.” *points*

Customer: “Ah! Coffee cups!”
