Pure Blind Ignorance

, , , | Right | September 22, 2017

Me: “Hello, ma’am! Welcome to [Store]. What are you shopping for today?”

Customer: “I want a gold thumb ring.”

Me: “Certainly, ma’am. Our gold rings are right over here.”

Customer: “Let me see that one.”

(I pull a ring out of the case and hand it to her. Note: While I know a lot of the prices, I don’t have them all memorized. Every item has a price tag on it, however.)

Customer: “How much is it?”

Me: “Oh, the price should be on top of the jewelry pad there.”

Customer: “That’s NOT what I asked.”

Me: *taken aback* “I’m sorry; I don’t know it by heart. If you could…” *gestures at ring for her to look at price, or hand it back so I can see the tag*

Customer: “And what if I’m blind, hmm?! I asked you the price! You can’t assume that I can see it!”

(She dropped the ring on counter and stormed away, leaving me to wonder why I would assume she was blind, seeing as how she pointed out the ring she wanted to see after perusing the selection.)
