(I am the receptionist at a chiropractor’s office. A patient comes in to buy some vitamins.)

Me: “Good morning! How may I help you?”

Patient: “Morning. Yeah, I need some vitamins.”

Me: “Alright, what is it you need?”

Patient: “I don’t know.”

Me: “…”

Patient: “My wife just sends me in to get what she needs. I don’t know what it is.”

Me: “Well….let me see if I can find out what it is through your purchase history.” (I’m skeptical because it doesn’t always list the code for products, mostly just for the different types of appointments. After a few moments of digging, I manage to find the right code.) “Ah, here we go. Is it [Product} that you need?”

Patient: “I don’t know. You don’t write it down?”

Me: “Uh….no sir, we don’t write it down. But, it looks like that’s the only thing that is ever purchased.”

Patient: “I guess that’s right. If it’s not, I’ll return it and get the right one.”

Me: “Sounds good. Is that everything?”

Patient: “I need two bottles.”

Me: “I’m afraid we only have one at the moment. It’s very popular because of cold and flu season.”

Patient: *huffs* “You’re kidding me. Fine. I’ll get that. I’m unlucky today!”

(I just rung him through as quickly as possible to get him out, as I had other patients and he does stuff like this to me a lot. He’ll try to come in when we aren’t open, and complain that we aren’t. He won’t order what he needs or call in advance to make sure we have it.)
