Maybe He Is Looking For De Ting, And De Ting Is Blue?

, , , | Right | June 2, 2020

We are supposed to greet and offer to assist every single customer that comes into our store, even if they ignore us. I am on the floor walking around when I see a man staring at a section of clearance items, looking very confused. Our clearance is only in one section, so it has a little bit from every department.

Me: “Hello, sir. How are you today?”

Customer: *Angry* “Hmph.”

Me: “Can I help you find anything?”

Customer: “You think I’m senile?”

Me: *Surprised* “Oh, no! I—”

Customer: “I’m not senile!”

Me: “No, sir, I didn’t mean to imply that at all. I’ll leave you to your shopping.”

I start to walk away.

Customer: “HEY, GET BACK HERE!”

Me: “I’m sorry, sir. How can I help you?”

Customer: “I’m looking for something.”

Me: “What are you looking for?”

Customer: “A… thing.”

Me: “Okay. Let’s try to narrow it down. Is it a food thing, a pet thing, a cleaning thing? Some other kind of thing?”

He sizes up the rough dimensions with his hands.

Customer: “It’s a thing that… I don’t know!”

Me: “Do you know what color it is?”

Customer: “No.”

Me: “Do you know where you found it last time?”

Customer: “You know what? You can just leave.”

Me: “Okay. If you need any help, just let one of us know, okay?”

Customer: *Grumpy* “Fine.” *To himself* “Stupid girl.”

He left the store empty-handed. I never did find out what he wanted.
