When The Unforgettable Meets The Incorrigible

, | Baton Rouge, LA, USA | Uncategorized

(I have just started working at popular women’s lingerie store and still don’t really know all of the bras that we sell.)

Customer: “I am looking for a bra. I don’t know the name of it, but I know what it looks like.”

Me: “Well, if you can tell me about it, I can help you find it.”

Customer: “I think it’s called the Unstoppable.”

Me: “Oh, that’s the Unforgettable.”

Customer: “No, no, that’s not it.”

Me: “Well, would you like me to show you the bra I have in mind?”

Customer: “No, thank you! You have been no help at all and if I see a manager, I’m going to talk to her.”

(The customer walks off and then comes back holding the Unforgettable bra.)

Customer: “I found it! It was the Unforgettable, just like I told you!”
