Acting Bright At The End Of The World

| Bizarre

(It’s a few weeks before Christmas and I am helping a customer carry a very heavy floor lamp out to her car. It’s been raining most of December, instead of snowing, which is unusual in Norway.)

Customer: *in a sing-song voice* “Oh, I just love the rain!”

Me: *smiling* “Yeah? I kind of prefer snow this time of year myself.”

Customer:  *looking both happy and serious* “Oh no, snow messes up the view! The world is going under, it’s ending, and it is important that the view is clear so everyone can see it go down!”

Me: “…”

Customer: “Here’s my car. Thanks for the help! Bye!”

Me: “You’re welcome.”

(I was left wondering why she needed the lamp when the world was ending anyway. Maybe to see it happen more clearly?)
