It’s Worse Than De Ting

(I work in a small store that sells random items, similar to a liquidation store. Most of our items are posted on a social media marketplace where people can message in on an item they’re interested in, and we send them a copied-and-pasted message off our cell phone’s clipboard giving them our store’s information such as hours, location, and the fact that we are a business and not a private seller. They are very free to walk in and pay for the item, which happens often for various reasons. Unfortunately, wives have a tendency to send over their husbands with little to no explanation of what they want, as if we only have one thing to sell. I have conversations similar to this one almost daily.)

Customer: “Hi! My wife messaged someone here about a thing.” *literally just says “thing”*

Me: “All righty, what are we looking for, exactly?”

Customer: “I don’t know… It’s like a house… thing.”

Me: “Did she prepay for it?”

Customer: “No.”

Me: “Do you have the picture from the ad?”

Customer: “No.”

Me: “Are you able to call your wife and ask what the item is?”

Customer: “She’s working.”

Me: “…”

Customer: “…”

Me: “…”

Customer: “So, do you know where it is?”

Me: “…”
