It Never Sticks

, , , | Right | November 18, 2020

I mix paint and this keeps happening. 

Me: “Here’s your paint! Do you need any sticks or openers?”

Customer: “No, thank you.”

A moment passes.

Customer: “Could I have one of those sticks?”

Me: “Sure! Would you like an opener, as well?”

Customer: “Yes, please.”

This has happened across genders, ages, ethnicities, and levels of English-speaking skill. I have no idea what they think I’m asking.
