Better Have A Cast-Iron Excuse For Not Finding It

, , , , | Right | November 2, 2017

Customer: “Can I have an iron?”

Me: “There should be one in your room.”

Customer: “There isn’t!”

Me: “Are you sure? Did you check the closet?”

Customer: “Yes, I did, and there was nothing!”

Me: “Hmm.” *to coworker* “Hey, watch the desk, will you?” *to customer* “Can I go with you to your room and see?”

Customer: “Fine! There’s no iron!”

(We go. I open the closet and there’s an iron in plain view.)

Me: “…”

Customer: “Oh, that closet!” *sees the incredulous look I’m giving him* “Well, I didn’t want to poke around too much! It’s nosy, you know! Thanks!” *pushes me out and slams door*

(I go back to the desk.)

Coworker: “Did you find it?”

Me: *nod* “I’m taking a break.”
