    Thinking Outside The Box, Part 3

    | Ottawa, ON, Canada | At The Checkout, Holidays, Spouses & Partners, Theme Of The Month, Top

    (I work for a big box retail location. It has been a busy day and I have been alone for a lot of my shift. I have been helping an elderly couple look for a TV for their grandchild for Christmas.)

    Wife: “I think this is the one that we want. Can we test it out to make sure it works?”

    Me: “Sure, just give me a couple minutes to set it up…”

    (I set every thing up and get everything going for them. This whole time, the husband hasn’t said a single thing.)

    Me: “Every thing seems to be in working order, but just in case, you do have 90 days to return it.”

    Wife: “That sounds great! By the way, do you have one that hasn’t been opened? We’re giving it as a gift.”

    Me: “Umm…”

    Husband: *to wife* “Are you a moron? You had him open it up to make sure it worked and now you want one that he didn’t open? We’re taking the open one and if she doesn’t like it, we’ll return it.”

    (The wife had a shocked expression on her face but didn’t protest it. I, on the other hand, wanted to shake that man’s hand for being the smartest person I had dealt with all day.)
