The Gift Of Death

| Right | March 5, 2016

(I work at the service desk of a home improvement store. I’ve had a line of customers wanting to do returns and purchases. An older man walks up to my register.)

Customer: “I need a gift card.”

Me: “Okay, I can do that for you. Unfortunately the only two I have down here say ‘THANKS’ on them. Is that okay?”

Customer: “It’s for a funeral.”

Me: “…Oh. Uhm, well we have a much larger variety down at the regular registers.”

Customer: “You mean I have to go all the way down there after I’ve been waiting here for ten minutes?”

Me: “I’m sorry, but I only have these two gift cards down here, and they both say ‘THANKS.’”

(He huffed and walked away. I told a few coworkers and none of us could figure out why you would give a gift card for a home improvement place at a funeral.)
