I am serving a customer and her husban who want a table protector that we sell by the metre.  They’ve asked me how wide it is.

Customer “I think I only need a metre, the table’s about that wide”

Husband “No, it’s 1.2 metres wide.

Customer *snapping at husband “IT’S ONLY 1 METRE”

Husband *snapping back “I MEASURED IT, IT’S 1.2 METRES”

Customer “It’s 1 metre by 2 metres”

Husband “NO IT’S NOT.

Customer “YES IT IS, I NEED A METRE”

Me *finally getting a word in, “actually you will need 2 metres”

Customer “Uh why?”

Me “You just said it was 2 metres long, this is only 1.30 wide”.

Both *Yelling at me “IT’S A ROUND TABLE!”

Me “Oh sorry I thought you meant a rectangle table”

Wife “Yes it’s a 1.2 metre round table”

Husband “yes a 1.2 round table”

Me “Ok I’ll cut you 1.2 metres then”.
