Models Are Always Catty

, , , , | Right | July 26, 2010

(A couple is holding at a kitten and waiting in line at a closed register.)

Me: “Hi, would you like to buy this cat?”

Customer: “I was wondering if I could get this in a different color?”

Me: “Well, we have many different colors of kittens. If you’ll come with me I can show you some others we have.”

Customer: “Well, I mean I want this model kitten, but in a different color.”

Me: “Well, kittens don’t really work that way. They have all different fur patterns and colors.”

Customer: “Yes. I want this fur pattern but a different color!”

Customer’s Husband: “Sweetie, I think she’s trying to say that the kittens will look different no matter what.”

Customer: “If she wanted to sell me something, she would look for the right model kitten! This is terrible service! How dare they! Honey, we’re going to a different pet store!”

Customer: “No, we’re not ready to order yet.”

Me: “Okay, I’ll come back later.”

(I start to walk away.)

Customer: “Hey! Aren’t you going to ask us what we want to eat?”

Me: “I’m sorry, I thought you said you didn’t want me to take your order yet.”

Customer: “Well, I don’t really care what order you ask us in. I just want my food!”

(An older customer approaches me.)

Customer: “Hi, the woman up front rang me up wrong. This shirt is supposed to be $17.99.”

Me: “Ma’am, I’m the one that put up the signs. I assure you they’re correct. Why don’t I go double-check it for you?”

(I check the signs.)

Me: “I checked the signs, and they’re correct. The shirts on the rack are $26.99, but the capris on the rack are $17.99.”

Customer: “But I read $17.99! The sign was right above the shirts!”

Me: “Yes, but there’s only so many spots for signs on a rack. The sign says ‘Capris’ right underneath the price. There’s also a sign for the shirts on the same rack.”

Customer: “Well, you should talk to your manager, because old people can’t read!”

Customer: “Black noise-canceling headphones. There’s such a thing as black noise?”

Customer: “Oh, because I’ve heard of that white noise. Are you sure it doesn’t just cancel the black noise?”
