This Conversation Is Stuck In A Cycle

| Omaha, NE, USA | Family & Kids

(I work at a small bike shop. During the early spring we get a lot of customers. I have only worked there a few months, and learn a lot from the owner. His son also works there and many customers know him. The owner is helping a customer and I am watching. When the owner goes back to get something for her, we find ourselves alone.)

Customer: “Are you his daughter?”

Me: “No, I’m just an employee.”

Customer: “He has the cutest kids! But you are definitely the prettiest.”

Me: “But I’m not his daughter.”

Customer: “Then why did you say he was?”

Me: “I didn’t. I’m just an employee.”

(The owner comes back.)

Owner: “All right, [My Name], if you would just put her information into the computer, that wo—”

Customer: “See! You called her [My Name]! That’s proof she’s your daughter! You shouldn’t teach her to lie!”

Owner: “So just because I use her first name means I’m her father?”

Me: “[Owner], it’s okay.”

Customer: “You call him father! Do it! NOW!”

Me: “I only call my father, father.”

Customer: “You mean he’s not your father?”

Me: “No.”

Customer: “Well, why didn’t you say so?”

(I am a customer waiting for a table at a chain restaurant that specializes in breakfast. They are having their annual ‘free pancake day’ promotion. The free pancakes are available only for sit-down customers, not takeout. Another customer approaches the hostess station.)

Hostess: “Hi, how many?”

Customer: “Do you do takeout?”

Hostess: “Do you mean for the free pancakes?”

Customer: “Why would you even ask me that?!”

Hostess: “I’m sorry, ma’am; that’s just what everyone else has been asking today.”

Customer: “Well, I’m not everyone else. You have so many other things on your menu; why would you assume I want pancakes?”

Hostess: “I’m sorry. Yes, we do takeout.”

Customer: “Whatever. I don’t even want to eat here anymore. F*** you guys; you disgust me!”
