Speaking Idiot Is Quite A… Thing

| Working | September 26, 2014

(I am out on the sales floor, helping to straighten things up. About ten feet away is a stock team member, putting things away off her cart that have just come in. I am approached by a customer.)

Customer: “Hi, I’m looking for one of those things for the kitchen counter.”

Me: “One of what things?”

Customer: *annoyed* “You know, it goes on the kitchen counter, for things?”

Me: “Do you mean a drying rack?”

Customer: “No! Not a drying rack! GOD! It goes on the counter; you put the things in it? You know for, like, the mix-y and the… the scoopy and the… STUFF!”

Stock Employee: “Ma’am? The item you’re looking for is in kitchen storage. *points to the aisle* Right over there, it’ll be about halfway down on your left. ”

Customer: “THANK YOU!” *glares at me, then stomps off*

Me: “How did you—”

Stock Employee: “I have a second job as a bartender. I don’t speak ‘Idiot’ but I DO speak ‘Drunk,’ and it’s nearly the same thing.”
