Easily Cheesed Off

, , , , , | Right | January 10, 2022

I work in a grocery store deli. I’m hard of hearing, but I manage to make up for it a bit with lip-reading. In this age of masks, this is cut off. I have to sometimes ask people to speak up or speak more slowly. Some people take serious offense to that. This particular lady seems to take offense to any request for clarification.

Me: “Hello, may I help you?”

The lady mumbles something behind her mask.

Me: “I’m sorry, I can’t hear you.”

Customer: *Snapping* “I said I want a half-pound of cheddar!”

We have multiple brands and levels of sharpness.

Me: “Which—”

Customer: *Cutting me off* “I want a half-pound of cheddar!”

Me: “Yes, ma’am. Wh—”

Customer: *Cutting me off again* “I WANT A HALF-POUND OF CHEDDAR!”

I gave up at this point and gave her the store brand. Surprisingly, she was content with this and flounced off with her cheddar and not another word.
