I Scream Fraud

, , , , , | Right | September 5, 2010

Me: “Hello, welcome to [Ice Cream Department]. How may I help you?”

Customer: *sounding angry* “I just purchased some of your ice cream for my son and now he’s broken out in hives! He has an allergy and all your ingredients should be clearly labelled!”

Me: “I’m sorry to hear that. It does say that our ice cream is both peanut and gluten-free, and our ingredients are available upon request, as they vary, depending on the type of ice cream someone orders.”

Customer: “Well, you didn’t tell me that before! And now my son has broken out in hives! This is all your fault!”

Me: “May I ask what your son is allergic to?”

Customer: “Sucrose. I don’t see why this matters.”

Me: *raises eyebrow* “Our ice cream doesn’t contain sucrose.”

(At this point, said customer’s young son walks in, looking perfectly fine and eating his ice cream.)

Customer: *surprised* “I told you to wait outside!” *in a lower voice* “…and out of sight!”
