Happy Birthday Two You

| Right | May 23, 2013

(I am working a shift on my birthday. An elderly customer that I recognize comes in without any items to have altered; I assume she is picking up an order.)

Me: “Good afternoon Mrs. [name]! What can I do for you today?”

Customer: “I just wanted to come in to tell you what a lovely job you did on my pants last week, and to give you this!”

(She ‘ninjas’ a bag out of her purse, and places it on my counter. It is a little bag of gourmet chocolate squares!)

Me: “For me? Really?”

Customer: “Yes! You were so nice to me, and I thought it would be nice to give you a treat!”

Me: “Well, that was really nice of you! Wow! These are even all the flavors I like! It is my birthday today, so thank you for the present!”

Customer: “It is? It is my birthday today, too! How about that! Happy birthday!”

Me: “Happy birthday to you, too!”

Customer: “Well, goodbye! I will see you again sometime!”

Me: “Have a great afternoon, and I hope so! Bye!”

Height Insight

| Right | June 6, 2011

(A customer is getting a suit jacket fitted. She is rather short.)

Me: “Okay, may I have your height?”

Customer: “Height? What’s that?”

Me: “How tall are you, ma’am?”

Customer: “Oh, yes…height. Of course. I think I’m, like, 5’12”?”

Me: “Okay, so about six foot?”

Customer: “No, 5’12”. Didn’t I just say that?”

Me: “Yes, ma’am. 5 feet 12 inches would be the same as six foot.”

Customer: “Well, they’ve changed it since last I checked.”
