Flowering With Too Many Possibilities

, , , , | Right | September 20, 2018

(A little old lady approaches me as I’m working in our small petite department.)

Lady: “Hello! I’m looking for a petite shirt I saw online. Could you help me find it?”

Me: “Of course! We don’t get everything online in the store, but if it’s here, we’ll find it.”

(I start going through the racks.)

Me: “What’s it look like?”

Lady: “It’s floral.”

(I pause for a second. Please note, it’s spring in a woman’s clothing store. Everything’s floral.)

Me: “Okay, what color is it?”

Lady: “It’s floral.”

Me: “Um, okay, but are there any prominent colors? Maybe green, blue, pink?”

Lady: “It’s floral.”

(Giving up, I proceed to show her every floral shirt in the department. She rejects each one, and every time I ask for more to go on, she replies, “It’s floral.”)

Me: “I’m sorry, miss, but it doesn’t look like we carry the shirt you’re looking for. We can order it for you online, if you like.”

Lady: “What? Why don’t you have it?”

Me: “Well, we’re a fairly small store, and our petite department is especially small. We can’t fit everything online in here.”

Lady: “But… it’s floral!
