The House Elves Are On Strike

| Southampton, UK | Uncategorized

(A customer has dumped some of her shopping on a display in the middle of the shop. After seeing her do this, I go over and pick up the items to return them to their rightful place. The customer sees me do this and start storming towards me.)

Customer: “What are you doing?”

Me: “Oh, I’m sorry. Did you still want these items?”

Customer: “No, but why are you moving them?”

Me: “Well, they have to be moved back to where they came from so the store is kept tidy.”

Customer: “Yes, but why are you doing it? Can’t you wait for those other people to do it?”

Me: “Sorry, who?”

Customer: “The people that come out when no one’s around, the ones that move everything around?”

Me: “Uh, I’m sorry, but we don’t employ any stock…ninjas. I’ll just take those items for you.”
