Fits Most Brains But Not Theirs

, , , | Right | December 25, 2017

(It is the holidays and I am working layaway. The mad rush has just died down. Our layaway department is adjacent to the clothing section. A woman approaches the layaway counter.)

Customer: “Excuse me? Can you help me with something?”

Me: “Sure. What is it?”

Customer: “Can you tell me what size these gloves are?”

(She places the gloves on the counter. I pick them up and inspect the tag, noticing it says “OSFM.”)

Me: “It says ‘One size fits most.'”

Customer: “So would they fit someone who is a medium?”

Me: *staring blankly* “Uh, well, it is one size fits most.”

Customer: “So would they fit a medium?”

(At this point I am internally yelling at this woman. How the h*** do you not realize that one size fits most would most likely fit someone who wears a medium size?)

Me: “One size fits most.”

Customer: “Right. So would they fit a medium?”

(This continues for a few minutes, and she is clearly not understanding.)

Me: “Yes, one size fits most would fit a medium.”

Customer: “Okay.”

(As she walked away, I banged my head against the register a few times.)
