I’m the nutty customer here. I bought a new, mid-priced vaping device. Not 2 weeks later, it vanished. I know where it should be (my car), but it’s not. In frustration I go back to the store with the box so I know what unit to get again. The clerk is just finishing with one customer and eyes the box in my hand.

Clerk: [suspiciously] Can I help you?

Me; Yeah, I got one of these here a couple weeks ago.

Clerk: [with more suspicion] What’s wrong with it?

Me: It’s missing.

Clerk: It’s what?!

Me: I had it in my car and I was sure I put it on the passenger seat and then there was a big traffic jam and I hit the brakes and a few things slid on the floor. But when I went to find it, it was gone. I’ve torn the car apart and can’t find it.

Clerk: [brightening and laughing] Oh, so there’s nothing wrong with it, it’s just missing.

Me: Yup. Missing.

When he realized I wasn’t there to complain about something that was my own fault we had a nice conversation and he gave me a small discount on my replacement.
