Given Short Shrift At The Thrift

, , , , | Right | October 30, 2013

(I am shopping at a thrift store. A customer barges up to me with a dress in her hand and waves it in my face.)

Customer: “Excuse me, do you work here?”

Me: “No… sorry.”

Customer: “You look like you work here. I can’t find this dress in a small.”

Me: “Yeah, that’s the problem with these thrift stores. Not always the right sizes.”

Customer: “Where can I find it in a small?”

Me: “I don’t know. You may have to pick another dress.”

(The customer stares at me a minute, suspiciously, as I’m going through a rack.)

Customer: “Where are the size-eight shoes?”

Me: “I don’t know. Normally, they’re over there, but they just rearranged everything so I don’t know. You’ll have to ask someone who works here.”

Customer: “I need shoes to match this dress in a size eight!”

Me: “Good luck!”

Customer: “You are NO HELP AT ALL!”

(The customer flung the dress at me and stormed over to the shoes. She started scattering them all over and demanding to the room in general that she needed a size eight. One of the poor employees ended up getting stuck with pampering her the entire time I was there.)
