Slippery Christmas Ice

, , , , | Right | September 10, 2009

(This occurs two days after Christmas Day at the refunds desk.)

Customer: “These slippers don’t fit! I’ve been the same shoe size for years. It must be these new European sizes; I can’t even get my foot in!”

Me: “That’s no problem, sir. I’ll just refund these and give you a credit note, and then you can go and choose some slippers that fit.”

Customer: “This ruined my Christmas, you know!”

(I take the slippers and examine them for any faults or damage, while the customer continues to rant.)

Me: “Sir, did you remove the tissue paper from the toes before you tried these on?”

Customer: “Oh.”

(Needless to say, the slippers did, in fact, fit. Christmas was saved.)
