Flea, You Fools!

, , , , , | Right | November 30, 2019

(I’m alone in the shop one day when one of the manager’s regular clients comes in and literally throws her chihuahua at me over the desk.)

Customer: “BOBBY HAS FLEAS!”

Me: “Bobby always has fleas, ma’am. You need to have your house treated.”

Customer: “GIVE HIM A FLEA BATH; THAT WILL BE GOOD ENOUGH!”

Me: “He’s just going to get fleas again when you bring him home.”

Customer: “GIVE HIM A FLEA TREATMENT! THEN THEY WILL LEAVE HIM ALONE!”

Me: “They can still get on him when he has the treatment. They’ll just die when they bite him; it doesn’t magically make the fleas disappear from your house.”

Customer: “JUST GIVE HIM A BATH! I HAVE TO GO!”

Me: *sighing* “You have to fill out the paperwork, ma’am.”

(This was a regular occurrence. I just feel bad for Bobby.)
