Customers Come In All Stripes

| UK | Crazy Requests

(It’s been an uneventful day at work…that is, until a young lady comes in asking if she can make a request.)

Customer: “It’s coming up to my father’s birthday, and he never knows what to do.”

Me: “Okay, so what can I help you with?”

Customer: “So, I’m going around various attractions and places we could have a day out. I’m having my photo taken at each one to turn into a big poster so he has an idea of where we can go.”

(I nod while she’s explaining this, as it sounds very reasonable.)

Customer: “So, would you be able to take a photo of me pretending to bowl?”

Me: “Yeah, sure! We’re not too busy, so I can do that for you.”

Customer: “Great. Now, one more thing…”

Me: “Sure, fire away.”

Customer: “Can I do it dressed in a tiger costume?”

Me: *laughing* “Sure, go ahead!”

(She wasn’t pulling my leg: I took the picture of her dressed as a tiger, leaving me smiling for the rest of the night.)

Not Quite Up Their Alley

Customer: “We would like to bowl on the lane next to our friends. They are on lane five.”

Me: “Okay, no problem. You are on lane 6.”

Customer: “Where’s that?”
