    There’s No Business Like My Business

    | California, USA | At The Checkout, Bizarre

    (I work at a well-known retail pharmacy. One night while I’m still new on the job, I’m manning one of the cash registers.)

    Woman: “Hi, where is your baking soda?”

    Me: “Um, I can’t guarantee that we have baking soda, but if we do, it would be in Aisle 3.”

    Woman: *goes off to look for it*

    (15 minutes later, the customer comes through my line with her baking soda.)

    Me: “Oh, I see you found it! I’m glad we carry it.”

    Woman: “If you hadn’t, I would have been very frustrated, and I would never have come here again!”

    (I think she’s joking and laugh a bit.)

    Me: “Well, I’m certainly glad you found it!”

    Woman: *completely serious* “I did that to [other retail store] when they didn’t have lettuce, and they went out of business within a week!”

    Me: *pause* “Um… I’m REALLY glad you found the baking soda, then.”
