Two’s Company, Flees A Crowd

| Arizona, USA | Crazy Requests

(I’m working at a big-box retailer in a college town. It’s a week or so before school is about to get back in, so it’s naturally very busy.)

Customer: “It’s too crowded here.”

Me: “I’m sorry?”

Customer: “It’s too crowded. Can’t you get some of these people to leave? I can’t get any shopping done!”

Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am, but I can’t control the number of people in the store. Besides, we like it busy.”

Customer: “Why the h*** would you LIKE it this busy?”

Me: “We’re trying to run a business, ma’am.”

(At this point, my manager walks up.)

Manager: “You know, if you left, it would be that much less crowded.”

Customer: *storms off in a huff*
