I Come A Long Way To Work My Shifts  

, , , | Right | February 12, 2020

(I am a customer in a popular clothes shop. I do not work here and I am on holiday from the UK. I have a strong British accent.)

Customer #1: “Excuse me. Can you point me to the flip flops?”

Me: *shakes my head, smiling*

Customer #1: “Yes, you can! You work here!”

Me: “No, sorry, I don’t.”

Customer #1: *getting irate* “YES, YOU DO! I SPOKE TO YOU EARLIER! YOU WORK HERE; YOU SHOULD KNOW!”

Me: “Sorry, I don’t work here.”

Customer #1: “BUT I SPOKE TO YOU EARLIER! DON’T LIE!”

Me: “Sorry, I don’t work here. In fact, I don’t even live here; I am on holiday from England.”

Customer #1: *by now it seems to have dawned on the lady that I have a very strong British accent* “Oh… I, uh… Erm… Sorry!” *scuttles off, very embarrassed*
