At The Tipping Point

, | Right | April 14, 2011

(I work at a custard shop. With every cone we hand out to a customer, we have to inform them to hold it straight up. Otherwise, the custard could slide off the cone.)

Me: “Alright, sir. Here is your cone. Be sure to hold it straight up.”

Customer #1: “Thank you, and will do!”

(His girlfriend is standing next to him, still deciding on what to order.)

Customer #1: “Have you decided yet, dear?”

Customer #2: “No.”

Me: “Would you like to try a sample of anything?”

Customer #2: “No, I’ll just try some of his.”

(She proceeds to swipe it out of his hands. She tips the cone completely sideways as she is trying to taste it. The custard slides off and falls all over her shirt.)

Customer #1: “What are you doing?!”

Customer #2: “It’s not my fault! She never said that it would fall!”

Customer #1: “Of course she did! You were standing right here!”

Me: “It’s okay. I can remake it for you no problem! This usually happens.”

Customer #2: “Oh, so this kind of thing happens daily?”

(I didn’t know how to tell her that while it does happen daily, it is usually just with toddlers.)
