Just Sell Her An Alaskan King And Be Done With It

, , , , , | Right | February 13, 2023

I work at a futon shop. I am helping a woman who doesn’t know the size of her bed and therefore the size of the fitted sheet she needs. I try every way of trying to help her determine or remember, but she keeps answering:

Customer: “It’s just a bed! A regular bed!”

I even resort to explaining the concept of size, in desperation, using clothing size as an example.

Nope, she seems to be listening, I think we might be getting somewhere, and then, nope! She’s right back at “a regular bed!”

Finally, my manager butts in to say, very politely, calmly, and kindly:

Manager: “I’m sorry, ma’am, but we can’t help you. I’m sorry, but we can’t sell you anything.”

He had to say it several times, but eventually, she gave up and left. Bizarre. She was educated and well-spoken… How could she have missed being aware of the very concept of bed/mattress/sheet sizes?!
