Unfiltered Story #155530

A notorious family of customers has just walked into the store. We’ve got to be quite brusque with them, otherwise they just don’t leave the store and talk your ear off while you try to get work done.
This happens on a public holiday, when the shopping centre we are adjacent to is closed.
Me:*internally groaning*
Mother: (she begins a long winded complaint about the centre being closed and how it’s going to make family arguments worse)
Me: (vaguely): You’ve got it right, just us open today.
Mother: (continues long story about an argument that happened on this holiday)
I’m trying to keep working without appearing rude, or encouraging her, serving a couple of customers.
Mother: that reminds me, do you sell apples and carrots?
