(My father is returning a kettle to a store as it has stopped working after a handful of uses. He walks up to the customer service desk.)

Dad: “Hi. I bought this kettle. Can I have an exchange, please?”

Store Assistant: *very straight-faced* “I’m very sorry, sir, but I’m afraid we can’t do that.”

Dad: “Why?”

Store Assistant: “Because this is [Nationwide UK Motoring Store]. [Household Electric Store] is next door.”

(He looked up and around, noticing the car parts on display for the first time. He’s a regular shopper at this motoring store and had walked in by habit. Needless to say, he felt very embarrassed but is still laughing at himself several days later.)
