Caller: “Yes, I’m looking for a nail polish.”

Me: “Okay, what kind?

Caller: “Did you watch The Price is Right the other day?”

Me: “Sorry, no.”

Caller: “They had this blue car on there, and I want that color for my nail polish.”

Me: “I’m sorry, I didn’t see it. Could you tell me what type of blue this was? Perhaps a medium or bright blue?”

Caller: “It was a car blue.”

Me: “I see. I’m not sure what that means, so I can’t really help you. You could always come in and look around.”

Caller: “Well, how many blues do you have? I don’t want to waste my time!”

Me: “We have many different choices, ma’am.”

Caller: “Right, but I want the blue from The Price Is Right!”

Customer: “Oh, and I don’t need a receipt.”

Me: “Alright, here you go. Have a nice day!”

Me: “All refunds and exchanges are done at Customer Service. Good thing I held on to your receipt!”
