Just Tell Him It’s An Act Of Cod

, , , | Right | December 12, 2019

Customer: “Can I have a cod and chips?”

Me: “Sorry, I only have haddock and plaice left. Is that okay?”

Customer: “Why?”

Me: “We ran out of cod earlier.”

Customer: “Why?”

Me: “Sorry, we just have haddock and plaice. No cod.”

Customer: “Why not?”

(I eventually told him I found a cod, but just gave him a haddock. Our boss tells us to do this anyway; there isn’t much difference in taste. I’ve done this plenty and haven’t had one complaint about getting the wrong fish. Luckily, this guy didn’t complain, either.)
