It’s Soy Bad For You!

, , , , | Right | May 23, 2018

(I work at a popular smoothie shop where we have two kinds of protein powder customers can add. Most people just say “protein” and I have to ask them to specify.)

Me: “Would you like to put any [extras] in that today?”

Customer: “Yeah, protein.”

Me: “Is that whey or soy protein?”

Customer: *looking very serious* “Oh, whey, of course. Soy is very bad for you, you know.”

(I don’t know how I manage to keep a straight face, but I finish the transaction in perfect professionalism, hand him the key to the bathroom when he requests it, and go straight to the shift leader once he’s disappeared.)

Me: “That guy just told me he definitely wanted whey protein because, and I quote, ‘soy is bad for you.’”

Shift Leader: “You mean the guy who just came in smelling like a pack of cigarettes?”

Me: “Yup! That guy!”

(Our whole store smelled like cigarette smoke for a good ten minutes after he left. But, “soy is bad for you!”)
