Customer: *flagging me down* “Excuse me, we have some questions!”

Me: “Oh, I’m sorry. Let me get another associate to help. Today is my first day. I haven’t even begun training yet!”

Customer: “But that will take too long! I’m sure you can answer some simple questions.”

Me: “I’ll do my best, but I really would feel more comfortable if you let me get somebody with more experience.”

Customer: “Nonsense! Now what can you tell me about the leather on this sofa?”

Me: “Um… it’s from a cow?”

Customer: “…”

Me: “I’ll get another associate, shall I?”

Customer: “Please.”
