The Stupid Just Radiates Off Of Him

| Right | December 31, 2015

(I am an 18-year-old student working at a local grocery store chain, normally as a cashier but occasionally I’m put in the meat & seafood department to clean up at the end of the day. This happens to be one of those days. The phone rings, and I pick it up.)

Me: “Hello, thank you for calling [Store]’s meat and seafood department. This is [My Name] speaking. How may I help you?”

Customer: “Yeah, uh, where do you get your tuna from?”

Me: “It’s fished off the coast of BC, close to Vancouver.”

Customer: “Yeah, well I’m calling because my wife saw something on Facebook that said that the tuna there is full of radiation.”

Me: “Excuse me?”

Customer: “There was a post on Facebook that said your tuna was irradiated.”

(I’m trying as hard as I can not to laugh.)

Me: “I can assure you, there is no radiation poisoning in our tuna.”

Customer: “I don’t know. The post was really detailed.”

Me: “Well, I wouldn’t believe everything I read on Facebook, but I can get a manager for you if that helps.”

(I go and get my manager, who laughs as soon as he hears the situation. He talks to the customer for a bit, eventually coming to a conclusion.)

Manager: “Radiation, oh man. People believe this s***?”
