Take It Or “Leave” It

, , , , | Right | January 11, 2021

I’m standing in line waiting to purchase some wood-filler. The customer in front of me is complaining.

Customer: “People won’t wait in lines this long. This will be the undoing of this company.”

Staff: “Sorry, sir, we are going as fast as we can.”

Customer: “People will not wait this long.”

Me: “Well, you’re waiting, aren’t you?”

Customer: “Am I?”

Me: “Well, yes, you are, since you’re still in the queue.”

Customer: “Oh, well, I’ll leave! See how long this company lasts!”

The customer slams a pack of easy-stick hooks on the counter and walks out.

Me: “One less person to wait for.”

The staff then thanked me, as he had apparently been harassing them for quite some time.
