Not Very Closed-Minded, Part 13

| Clifton, NJ, USA | Right | October 29, 2015

(The supermarket where I work is going out of business. There are large signs placed EVERYWHERE stating this. It is the last week of operations where the discounts range from 40% to 80% off. Needless to say the shelves are a little bare and there is not much variety. As I am working at marking discounted prices on items a customer continually approaches me to ask questions.)

Customer: “Why don’t you have [specific flavor of ice cream] I want?”

Me: “Because the store is closing.”

Customer: *yelling* “That is unacceptable! I am going to report you to the corporate office!”

(I can’t help but burst into laughter.)

Customer: “What’s so funny?”

Me: *between laughs* “Lady, the company is going out of business. Do you REALLY think Corporate gives a s***?”

(We’re selling sets of small photo books at a discount price and they have been very popular.)
