Christmas In July!

, , , , | Right | August 6, 2019

(My very first job is in a card shop that is famous, in part, for its collectible Christmas ornaments. It’s early in the year, maybe January or February, and all we have left of the previous year’s ornaments are on heavily marked-down clearance. A woman comes in, gets a basket, and wanders around the shop. A few minutes later, she comes up to the counter with a couple of ornaments in her basket.)

Customer: “Are these all the ornaments you have?”

Me: “Yeah, just what’s left from last year’s stock.”

Customer: “Okay. When do you usually start putting out the new ones?”

Me: “We have our ornament premiere in July.”

Customer: *shocked* “That late?!”

(I didn’t know July was “late” for a holiday six months away, but okay!)
