Stop, Drop & Service The Customer

, | Right | April 15, 2009

(The fire alarm began to go off, and an old woman came up to my counter.)

Me: “I’m sorry, but I’m going to have to ask you to leave the store. There appears to be a fire upstairs.”

Customer: “But I want to buy these shoes…”

Me: “If the fire is contained then you can come back in and buy them later.”

Customer: “Can you check if you have them in my size?”

Me: “That’s where the fire is.  Can you please leave the building now? It’s dangerous to be in here!”

Customer: “This is ridiculous. All I want you to do is check if you have it in my size!”

Me: “So, let me get this straight: you want me to go upstairs into a burning part of the building, to see if we have some shoes in your size, which are probably currently on fire?”

Customer: “Is that so much to ask?”

Me: “Get out.”
