The Grapes Of Telepaths

| Ann Arbor, MI, USA | Uncategorized

(I’m a merchandiser working one of the stores on my route. A customer approaches me.)

Customer: “White wine!”

Me: “You want a white wine?”

Customer: “White wine!”

Me: “Okay, sir. How about this one?”

(I hold out a bottle of Chardonnay.)

Customer: “That’s yellow. I want white wine.”

Me: “Okay. How about a White Zinfandel?”

Customer: “That’s pink. White wine!”

Me: “Okay, how about this?”

(I hold out a bottle of Pinot Grigio.)

Customer: “That’s clear. I want white!”

Me: “Sir, these are all white wines I’m showing you.”

Customer: “I want a white wine!”

Me: “Sir, these are white wines. ”

Customer: “That one’s yellow. That one’s pink. That one’s clear. I want white wine!”

(This went on for another ten minutes until his friend showed up. Turns out he wanted a yellow Chardonnay.)

Concentrate Harder

(I am at a sample station of apple cider.)

Customer: “Oh, apple cider!”

Me: “Yes, ma’am. Would you like to try some?”

(At this point the customer picks up the bottle.)

Customer: “Oh, it’s not from concentrate. That means I can try some! I’m allergic to apples, you know.”

(A mother is shopping with her 5 year old son is lagging behind.)

Mother: “C’mon! We’re in a hurry!”

Son: “Mama, I was looking at the chocolate pudding. You know, you’re not supposed to bother me while I’m looking at the chocolate pudding.”

(The cigar shop sells hookahs and tobacco for it. It’s called sheesha.)

Me: “Can I help you?”

Customer: “Yes. I’m looking for hookah tobacco. It’s called…uh…ganja?”

Me: “This is the only hookah tobacco we sell.”

Customer: “Thank you!”

(As I am ringing him out, it suddenly occurs to him what he had asked for.)

Customer: “Oh my God! Did I just ask you for weed?”

Customers Cause A Pounding Headache

Customer: “I’d like a pound of Tilapia, please.”

Me: “No problem.”

(I put 3 pieces on the scale, and the weight comes to 1.02 pounds.)

Me: “Is that good?”

Customer: *sighs, then sounding utterly dejected* “Good enough.”
