I’m a cashier at a grocery store downtown. We used to be an independent store but now we’re owned by a bigger, national company, however we still use the same name. This conversation happened with a customer.

Customer: You know there’s a store in Ontario that’s exactly like this one but its called [name of national company].
Me: Yep we’re actually part of [national company].
Customer: No you’re independently owned.
Me: (still friendly) We used to be independently owned but recently we were bought out by [national company].
Customer: (smugly) No you’re independently owned.
Me: (getting a little frustrated) Sir we’re definitely owned by [national company]…
Customer: … no. No. (Walks away)
