    Psychic Psycho(Deli)c

    | Loxahatchee, FL, USA |

    Me: “Hey there, what can I get for you?”

    Customer: I”’d like half a pound of [brand that we carry] ham, and a quarter of a pound of [brand we do NOT carry] Swiss cheese.”

    Me: “Ma’am, I’m sorry but we don’t carry the brand of cheese you were looking for. Can I get you something else?”

    Customer: “What do you mean you don’t carry it? I just bought it here last week!”

    Me: “But we don’t carry it ma’am. We do have about five other Swiss cheeses to choose from.”

    Customer: “Are you stupid? I’m looking right at the cheese I want!”

    (I walk around the counter to see her pointing at the regular brand of cheese that we’ve always carried, not the brand she was asking for.

    Me: “Oh, you asked for a different brand. I’m sorry about that, I’ll just go ahead and cut it.”

    Customer: “No , this is what I meant I wanted. You should have known!”

    Me: “I should have known what you really wanted when you said you wanted something else?”

    Customer: “Of course! Isn’t that part of your job?”

    Customer: “I’d like a piece of white meat.”

    Me: “Would you like a rib or a keel?”

    Customer: “What’s a keel?”

    Me: “The center cut of the best, the middle bone is the sternum.”

    Customer: “What, no that’s dark meat. The sternum is in the back of the animal.”

    Me: “In chickens, they have an elongated sternum for their wing muscles.”

    Customer: “I know every bone in the human body! The sternum is in the back!”

    Hamming It Up

    Customer: “I’m not sure what to get. Do you have any suggestions?”

    Me: “Certainly, ma’am! The oven roasted turkey is very popular, and the black pepper chicken is quite good.”

    Customer: “What about this ham, have you tried it?”

    Me: “I haven’t, no, but would you like a sample?”

    Customer: “Why haven’t you tried it? Is it gross?”

    Me: “No, ma’am, I haven’t tried it because it’s not kosher.”

    Customer: “You work here, you should have tried everything!”

    Me: “Sorry ma’am. Would you like a sample?”

    Customer: “No! I want you to try it first!”

    Me: “I’m not going to eat the ham.”

    Customer: “Well that’s not very Christian of you, is it?”

    Me: “Well, sir, if you look at your sticker, you’ll see that it is actually $3.98 a pound this week.”

    Customer: “But, it says that it’s $5.98 a pound. You need to fix this, and you need to fix the price on my turkey.”

    Me: “Sir, the turkey is on sale this week. You got it for $3.98 a pound, instead of $5.98.”

    Customer: “Well, this is just ridiculous. You guys need to get your act straight, and you need to fix my sticker!”
