Take A Bike Hike

, , , | Right | June 12, 2018

(I work in a local bicycle shop. We sell bicycles, parts, and service, but do not buy from the public. We get the following phone call at least once daily.)

Me: “Thanks for calling [Shop]. How can I help you?”

Customer: “Do y’all buy bikes?”

Me: “No, we don’t, sorry. You might try posting on Craigslist or eBay.”

Customer: “Oh. Well, I have a [year] [Model]. How much is that worth?”

Me: “I’m not sure. We usually just look them up on Craigslist or eBay to see what they sell for locally.”

Customer: “So, how much can I get for it?”

Me: “Let me just Google that for you.”

Customer: *uncomfortable silence*

Me: “…”

Customer: *recording* “We’re sorry, but the number you have dialed is no longer…”
