Gluten And Intelligence Free

, , , , | Right | January 27, 2019

(We sell mostly artistic chocolates, ice creams, and some French pastries. Our most successful of the last ones are the macarons; those are made of almond paste and for commercial reasons are said to be without any gluten (“gluten free”). A man in his forties enters the shop orders eight of them.)

Me: “So, everything is 17.95.”

Customer: “What?! Why should I pay?!”

Me: “Well, sir, this is how it’s supposed to work. Our product costs 17.95 for eight; I can’t do otherwise.”

Customer: “But it was written it will be free!”

Me: “Where did you see that?”

Customer: “Here! Just look, it’s on the wall.”

(I look and realize the man is talking about the large sign where it is printed “Gluten Free.”)

Me: “Uh, no, sir. These are called macarons, not ‘glutens.’”

Customer: *leaves without buying anything*
