Pants-Fulfilling Prophecy

, , | Right | September 7, 2009

(A coworker of mine is looking through racks of clothes, trying to find where a shirt goes. A customer and her friend approach her as she’s doing this.)

Customer: “Why the h*** are you following us?”

Coworker: “Um… sorry?”

Customer: “You don’t have to follow us around the whole store. I’m not going to steal some cheap $5 shirt.”

Coworker: “Ma’am, I’m just trying to figure out where this shirt goes.”

Customer: “Shouldn’t you know where it goes? You do work here!”

Coworker: “Sorry, ma’am, they change the layout every few days.”

Customer: “I should sue you for discrimination!”

Coworker: “Ma’am, if I thought you were going to steal from us, the manager would be following you, not me.”

Customer: “Whatever! We’re leaving!”

(As the customer turns away, my coworker notices a tag sticking out from the pants of the woman who was with the angry customer.)

Coworker: “Tell your friend that she can pay for that shirt she’s trying to steal at the front of the store.”

Customer’s Friend: “S**t!”

(The customer and her friend both bolted from the store, dropping the shirt in the process.)
