Deconstructing This Exchange Is Still Confusing

, , , | Right | April 13, 2020

(I am cleaning and stocking a newly built restaurant. We are not open yet and the site is obviously under construction, with temporary fencing and signs warning against trespassing. An elderly man walks inside.)

Customer: “I want a fish sandwich with ketchup added.”

Coworker: “Sir, we are closed. We don’t open until next week.”

Customer: “A fish sandwich with ketchup on it.”

Coworker: “We’re closed. We’re under construction.”

(The customer sits down in the lobby. We get our manager, who tells the man that he needs to leave.)

Customer: “Fine, then!”

(He raises his cane high above his head, slams it into the floor, and walks out.)

Customer: “Stay closed! Don’t open! I’m never coming here again!”
