Making A Light Joke

, , , | Right | May 13, 2019

(I am a fairly tall male — 6’2” — and I have a very deep and resonant voice. When interacting with customers I always speak in a much higher tone so that I sound more friendly and approachable. I’ve just finished bagging up a customer’s purchase when the following happens.)

Me: “You’re all set to go. Thank you for shopping at [Store] and have a great day!

Customer: “You know, you’d sound a lot more friendly if you tried to lighten your voice some.”

Me: *drops my voice a couple of octaves down to my normal speaking voice* “Yeah, I thought so, too.”

Customer: *opens mouth to speak, thinks better of it, and leaves without another word*
