Not Worth Sweating About

, , , | Right | August 8, 2018

(I work clothing at a big box store. I guess back in the day, they carried sweats year-round, but this was long before my time. Now we only carry them in the wintertime. It is currently May.)

Customer #1: “Do you have sweatpants?”

Me: “I’m sorry, but we don’t have any right now.”

Customer #1: “Sold out for the season?”

Me: “Yep.”

Customer #1: *turns to the man with her* “I guess they’re out.”

Customer #2: “What kind of store doesn’t have sweatpants?!”

Customer #1: “A store that is getting ready for summer.”

Customer #2: “That is ridiculous! You just lost a customer!”

(This was not the first time something like this happened. It seems when I tell a younger person we don’t have sweatpants year-round, they tend to understand, but when I tell an older customer we don’t have sweats year-round, they go ballistic.)
