Don’t Want To Be In Their Shoes

| Right | July 24, 2017

(My roommate works for a popular shoe store in a strip mall. Today an elderly woman came into the store and had a few questions for him.)

Customer: “Excuse me, sir?”

Roommate: “Hello, ma’am, what can I do for you today?”

Customer: “Do people in Africa wear shoes?”

Roommate: *stunned silence for a moment* “Er, yes, they wear shoes in Africa.”

Customer: “It just doesn’t seem like a custom they would recognize.” *returns to her shopping*

(He had to take his break early just to process what had happened!)
