Get An Even Bearing On An Odd Situation

, , | Right | September 24, 2018

(The store I work at receives our stock on a Monday. By Wednesday we have finished processing it and it is all on the shop floor for purchase. I am tidying one of the aisles when a customer comes walking up to me, and asks me a question, without a, “Hello, how are you?” or anything.)

Customer: “Do you have any more sets of trailer wheel bearings out the back?”

Me: “No, sir, just what is on the shelf, I’m afraid.”

Customer: “Well, you only have three sets on the shelf! What use is that? Do you know of any trailers with three wheels?!”

Me: “Well, no, but we generally have them sent in amounts of two. It could be that another customer has purchased one set and left us with an odd number. I’m sorry about that.”

Customer: “You don’t just change one! That’s just stupid. You may as well throw the other three away, as they’re no use to anyone!” *shaking head at me*

Me: *pause* “I’m sorry, sir, but I cannot control what people do and do not buy. There is a trailer shop just up the road, though; I’m sure you’ll be able to get some there.”

Customer: *muttering as he walks away* “F****** useless c***s!”

Me: *sigh*
