Attitude Needs A Re-Tiling

, , , , | Working | January 8, 2018

(I’m looking for new tiles to fill the wall in my new kitchen. I have no idea what I want yet, so I go to a store that specialises in tiles. The clerk is a middle-aged woman, trying to sound cheerful.)

Clerk: “Can I help you?”

Me: “Oh, I’m just browsing for inspiration.”

Clerk: “If you need inspiration, you should go to Pinterest! They have a lot of lovely things on there, and you won’t need to leave the house!”

Me: “Eh, sure… but sometimes a person just wants to browse. If I went to Pinterest, I wouldn’t have seen these lovely tiles here.” *points at the tiles I actually like a lot*

Clerk: “All right, then, have it your way.”

(After that, the clerk went to a table, picked up a newspaper, and started reading it. She didn’t look up any more. Needless to say, I didn’t buy my tiles there. And I’m still looking.)
