(I work as a clerk in the meat/seafood department at a grocery store, I sometimes get silly questions, but this one was extra foolish)

Me: “Hello, can I help you with something sir?”

Customer: “Yes, can I get half a pound of your Alaskan Crab Salad please?”

Me: “Sure, I will get that right away.”

*Gives salad*

Customer: “Can I also get one of these lobster tails please?”

Me: “Sure!”

*Gives him lobster tail I just wrapped*

Me: “Can I get you anything else today sir?”

Customer: “No that will be it, but just curious, is this crab salad made with real or imitation crab?”

Me: “It’s made with imitation crab. Is that ok for you?”

Customer: “Yeah that’s fine, but this is a real lobster tail right??”

(I look at him somewhat weirdly since this is very clearly a real raw lobster tail with shell on and all. I have no idea how anyone could manage to ask such a question.”

Me: “Yes that is real lobster, not imitation or anything.”

Customer: “Ok, thank you.”
