(This occurs in mid-June.)

Caller: “I’m looking for [certain swimming pool].”

Me: “Okay, one moment.”

(I then ask over the walkie-talkie if we have any of those pools left, and am told that we don’t.)

Me: “I’m sorry, sir, but we are all out.”

Caller: “Do you know when you’ll be getting any more in?”

Me: “Probably not until next summer.”

Caller: “Next summer?! But why?! Summer’s just getting started!”

Me: “Well, the retail season is one ahead of the actual season, so summer is almost over, and they’ll be sending us fall stuff soon.”

Caller: “Summer’s not almost over! It’s just getting started!”

Me: “The retail season is one ahead of the actual season, so retail summer is almost over.”

Caller: “That’s stupid! You people are ridiculous!” *click*
