(I’m working on the tills. There’s a long queue and I see someone approaching with a toy and a receipt, obviously ready to return it. She looks like an angry sort of woman so I prepare myself for the worst)

Me: Hi there. How can I help you today?

Woman: I want a refund on this toy. I bought it for my daughter’s birthday.

Me: Okay. Was there anything wrong with it at all?

Woman: Yes! You press the button and nothing happens, watch!

(She presses the button. The toy lights up and starts making all the noises it’s meant to. The woman stares at it for a few seconds)

Woman: Okay. Never mind.

(She makes quite a hasty retreat after that. She must have been queuing up for a good few minutes and, unfortunately, it was for no reason whatsoever!)
