(I work in a store that sells PVC table covers by the metre. Because they are heavy they are kept on a rack with it’s own cutter. A lady has asked me for three metres; I start pulling the PVC off the roll. We have a mark that shows a metre measurement but I usually check the measurement with a tape measure. Each time, I bend down while pulling the PVC down to the metre mark, but as I stand back up I notice the customer pulls the PVC herself, adding more to my measurement. Three times I pull, three times she pulls.)


Me: “It was just three metres you wanted?”


Customer: “Yes, three metres.”


(Wordlessly I pull out a tape measure and measure the three metres, rolling the extra metre and a half she’s managed to pull out herself back on to the roll before cutting the piece.)

Me: “There you go three metres.”
