    The Grapes Or Wrath

    | United Kingdom |

    (Note: I work at a hardware store. A customer approaches me.)

    Customer: “Do you sell grapes?”

    (I’m assuming they are some form of bolt or electrical fitting I had not heard of.)

    Me: “Um, what are they used for?”

    Customer: *looks at me like I’m an idiot* “Eating! Grapes!”

    Me: “Oh. No, this is a hardware shop.”

    Customer: *blank face* “But you used to sell fruit…”

    Me: “No, I’m pretty sure this shop has never sold any fruit.”

    Customer: “Oh.”

    (There’s a very long pause where he just stares at me.)

    Customer: “No grapes, then?”

    Me: “No.”

    Customer: “Oh.”
