Flip-Flopping Between Different Disturbing Imagery

, , , , , | Right | October 11, 2018

(I work at a store in the children’s department. I have an older customer come up to my register.)

Customer: “Hi, do you sell thongs for children?”

Me: *blinks* “Do you mean, like…”

Customer: “Children’s thongs.”

Me: “Do you mean… shoes?”

Customer:Oh! Yes. Flip-flops.”

Me: “Yes, they’re right over there.”

(I knew that “thong” was another word for “flip-flop,” and assumed that’s what she wanted, but it was so unexpected that it caught me off-guard. We both had a good laugh about it once she realized what it sounded like.)
