Customer: Do you have any sand?

Me: Aquarium sand? Yes, it’s right over here.

Customer: No, for a sandbox.

Me: …ma’am, this is a pet store.

Customer: Yes, do you have any?

Me: N…no, but I can show you what we do have.

(She nods politely and I show her the 5lb bags of fine aquarium sand, which cost $20 each and are nothing like playground sand. The customer has this look of polite interest on her face the whole time.)

Me: You could get these, but you’d need a lot of them and it would cost a fortune. Maybe try [Home Improvement Store]?

Customer: *nods* Yeah, maybe.

(She walks off. I still wish I knew what made her come into a pet store looking for bulk play sand!)
