That’s What You Get For Buying Socks At Christmas

, , | Right | December 23, 2017

(It’s two days before Christmas and it’s very busy. I work at an outdoors store and I’m checking out a very long line of people. Out of nowhere a woman storms past people in line and comes up to me.)

Customer: “Excuse me! I need to be helped!”

Me: “Okay, if you’ll wait for me to check these people out I’ll be happy to help you.”

Customer: “No, I need help now!”

(A coworker of mine comes to take the registers so I can help the woman.)

Me: “Okay, what can I help you with?”

Customer: “I’m looking for women’s socks but you only have men’s!”

Me: “Okay, the women’s socks are right here on this stand.”

Woman: “I said WOMEN’S. Are you deaf? These are men’s!”

Me: “No, ma’am, these are the women’s socks.”

Customer: “God, are you even listening? WOMEN’S! See? The tag says ‘M’ as in ‘men.’ I need WOMEN’S!”

Me: “That means medium.”

(She left pretty quickly after that!)
