How Do These People Receive Mail?

, , , | Right | January 29, 2020

(When handing out prescription slips, I am required to first confirm the address of the patient. I can’t hand it over if the details are wrong. Two customers come in to pick up a script for a third.)

Me: “And can I confirm her address, please?”

Male Customer: “It’s 31 [street #1].”

Customer’s Wife: *angrily* “No, it’s 101 [street #2]!”

(I check the form. Although [Street #2] is correct, the number of the house is 301, not 101.)

Me: “Can you confirm the house number, please?”

Customer’s Wife: “101.”

Me:One oh one?”

Customer’s Wife: *angry again* “YES, ONE OH ONE.”

Me: “Are you certain?”

Customer’s Wife: “YES. ONE HUNDRED AND ONE!”

Me: *pause* “Three oh one?”

Customer’s Wife: “YES! HOW MANY TIMES DO I HAVE TO SAY 301? I SHOULD COMPLAIN!”

Me: “Sorry, ma’am.”
