A Sign Of Lying

| Working | April 14, 2015

(I’m shopping at a big box retailer and am frustrated because out of ten possible registers, two are open and they each have lines ten customers deep. One of the closed registers is designated for 10 items or less. Despite there being no one at the register, I go and stand in line. Finally, someone sees me and comes over.)

Employee: “Ma’am, this line isn’t open.”

Me: “Are you telling me that the sign lies?”

Employee: “What sign?”

(I point above my head, where a large colorful sign proclaims that the register at which I’m standing is open every day from 10 am to 8 pm. It is the middle of the afternoon.)

Me: “That sign. Is it lying?”

Employee: “I… uh… if you’ll come over to customer service, ma’am, we’ll ring you up.”

(The next time I went to that store, the sign had mysteriously been removed.)
