Oh, Yeah, We Just Had That Installed Yesterday

I worked at a popular clothing store for a couple of years and had my fair share of crazy customers. But when people ask me what the weirdest thing I had to deal with was, this comes to mind first.

The store is a two-level store and always has been. It’s located in a huge mall. The top level is for men’s and children’s clothing, and the bottom level is for women’s. Each level connects with an entrance to the rest of the mall, but we have our own escalator and elevator inside the store to allow customers to move between our two levels only. The elevator is hard to find and all the way in the corner, but the escalator is right in the middle and hard to miss.

I am upstairs in the children’s section, walking out of the stockroom and heading to the elevator, when a lady stops me halfway.

Lady: “Excuse me, where is your women’s section?”

Me: “It’s downstairs.”

She looks at me all perplexed.

Lady: “But you don’t have a downstairs.”

I’m not sure what to say; we are standing literally five feet away from the escalator. I point to said escalator.

Me: “Yeah, it’s just that way.”

She turns around, looks at the escalator, and then looks back at me.

Lady: “But you’ve never had a downstairs.”

She looks a mixture of confused and irritated and is talking to me as if I’m stupid. I REALLY don’t know what to say at this point, so I pause for a couple of seconds before replying.

Me: “…well, we do now?”

She stared at me for like three seconds before turning around and getting on the escalator that would take her to this mythical land of downstairs. And I just stood there for the next ten seconds wondering what the h*** had just happened.
