Imperceptions On Imperfections

, , , | Right | June 12, 2010

(A customer comes in to pick up the portraits of her daughter she ordered. I go through the order with her to verify everything is there.)

Customer: “What is this on my daughter’s face?!”

Me: “Well, it looks like her skin has a red mark below her eye.”

Customer: “No! She doesn’t! She looked perfect when we came in and I didn’t see this on the computer before. You did something to them!”

Me: “I’m sorry you’re unhappy, but the photographs are exactly as they appear on the ordering screen. Also, this mark is on her face in the same spot in every pose, so it couldn’t be a printing problem.”

Customer: “Well, no. You’re wrong. You did something to them. My daughter is perfect!”

Me: “Can I help you find anything, ma’am?”

Customer: “Yeah, I’m looking for Christian Passover cards.”

Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am, we don’t carry any Christian Passover cards. Were you maybe looking for the Easter cards?”

Customer: “No, I need Passover cards for a Christian.”

Me: “I’m sorry, but Passover is a Jewish holiday. We don’t carry Christian Passover cards because Christians don’t celebrate it.”

Customer: “Jesus did!”
