(I work at a home furnishing store. We are trained to greet everyone that comes in the store. This customer enters, not looking his best, but I put on a smile.)
Me: Hello sir! Welcome to [store]. Are you looking for anything special today?
[The customer in question halts in his tracks. He stands by the entrance, blinking at me]
Customer: Yes, could I interest you in some fresh tamales?
Me: (in surprise and confusion) What?
Customer: (walks over towards me, never breaking eye contact) Could I interest you in some fresh tamales?
Me:…No thank you?
Customer: (nods) Well thank you for your time.
(He left without a word. I later told my manager about this man and after laughing she said maybe I should have taken his offer!)
