Breaking Bread With Bad Customers, Part 2

, , , , | Right | August 12, 2020

I work in a bakery inside a large grocery chain. This exact conversation happens multiple times weekly.

Me: “Welcome to [Bakery]; how can I help you today?”

Customer: “I’m looking for some bread.”

I point to our large wall of bread they’re standing mere feet from.

Me: “Of course! We have a large selection of bread for you here. Any particular sort of bread you’re looking for?”

Customer: “The kind for sandwiches.”

Granted, this conversation would be a minor inconvenience, were it not for the fact that no customers can come to a consensus on exactly what bread is “the kind for sandwiches.”
