Her Brain Is Offline

(I’ve been selling phones for about four years at this point and have never had an experience like this before. Don’t get me wrong; when you work retail you will eventually have dim customers, but this is a gem to me. This also happens a little before Black Friday so we are starting to get really busy.)

Customer: “Do you guys sell phones outright?”

Me: “Unfortunately, no. You’ll have to go to [Electronics Retail] or buy them online.”

Customer: “On what?”

Me: “Online.”

Customer: “On what?”

Me: “Online.”

Customer: “Clothesline?”

(I mentally take five seconds to breathe.)

Me: “On the Internet.”

Customer: “Oh, I don’t have that.” *walks off*

(My coworkers and even the customers they are helping start laughing. I then glance at my manager, who’s covering his mouth trying not to laugh.)

Manager: “Yeah, go eat. I got you covered.”
