Customer: “Excuse me. How far is [Place] from here?”

Me: “I never heard of that place; let me check on my computer.”

(Unfortunately, the computer decides to freeze on me, so I let out a sigh of frustration. The antsy young lady becomes aggressive.)

Customer: “You know, I can ask somewhere else! Do you want me to go ask someone else?!”

Me: *realizing* “No, uh, I was sighing at the computer, not at you; it’s very slow. It’ll only take a few minutes, I think…”

Customer: *glowering* “No, you weren’t! That was a sigh of annoyance, at me, your customer! You know what? I’m just going to go!” *flounces off*

Me: “…”

(Later, she wrote to my manager and complaining about my sighing.)
