Canadian Christmas Customers Cause Baggage About Bags

, , | Right | December 23, 2018

(I work at a very popular and well-known Canadian chocolate and ice cream shop. It’s four days before Christmas, and we are bombarded, as usual. As such, we’re running low on our paper bags because people keep wanting to use them as gift bags. Bear in mind that we sell and pack custom gift bags for a dollar-ish. They just want to be cheap and I’m tired of it. I overhear the following between my coworker and a customer who has purchased nearly 15 boxes.)

Customer: “Can I have one box in each bag? They’re going to different people.”

Coworker: “I’m sorry, but I don’t have enough.”

Customer: “What?”

Coworker: “I don’t have enough of the small bags, but I can fit two in each one, instead.”

Customer: “How does [Store] run out of bags at Christmas?!”

Me: “Because customers keep asking for them to use as gift bags and leave us without. Have a nice day!”
