(A customer approaches me and asks about some computer accessories)

Customer: “Excuse me, where might I find computer mice?”

Me: “Those are going to be along that back wall over there [points to the exact area where we keep the mice].”

Customer: “Okay, thank you!”

(The customer wanders away to start looking at the computer mice and I don’t see her again for a while. I’ve rang up quite a few people at my register, and then she comes back over to me when I have no more customers in my line.)

Customer: “Okay, I found the mouse. Now where might I find a mousepad? Let me guess, in the same area where I found the mouse, right?”

Me: “Yes, Ma’am, that’s correct. It should be along the same wall in the area where you found the mouse.”

Customer: “Okay, so where would that be? Over there?” [Points towards the DVD and Blu-Ray section, which is on the complete opposite side of the store from where the computer mice are–the area from where she had just come)

Me: “No, Ma’am, those are going to be back in the same area where the computer mice are. Back in the computers department.” [Points to the back wall, directing her back to where she just came from]

Customer: “Oh, okay, thanks!”
