In A Pickle Pickle

, , , | Right | May 1, 2018

(While I am working the cash register, a woman comes in and orders a portion of chips and two pickled onions, which are taken out of a jar beside the till. Upon receiving her order, she leaves, only to return several moments later. There are four customers waiting for their orders standing at the back of the shop.)

Customer: “Yeah, I have a complaint.”

Me: “Oh? What seems to be the problem?”

(The customer opens their chip box.)

Customer: “Why is one of my pickles smaller than the other?”

Me: *trying to contain laughter* “I’m sorry, what?”

Customer: “My pickles. One is smaller than the other; I want different pickles.”

Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am, but the onions are selected at random.” *pointing to the jar and then to the queue forming behind her* “I’m afraid I don’t have time to rifle through the jar to find similar-sized onions, and I cannot take those back.”

(The customer glares at me before storming out. The customers who are waiting, my boss, my coworker, and I burst into laughter as the customer behind her steps forward.)

Customer #2: “How petty can some people be? Really, complaining about the size of her onions?”
