They’re Slippery Costumes To Get

, , , , | Right | September 23, 2015

(Earlier in the day on Halloween, we get a phone call.)

Caller: “Do you have any banana suits?”

Coworker: “Yes, ma’am, we have one left.”

Caller: “Can you hold it for me?”

Coworker: “No, not unless you buy it over the phone.”

Caller: “No, it’s fine. I’ll be there soon.”

(Later, I have just sold the last banana suit.)

Customer: “I called a bit ago about a banana suit.”

Me: “I’m very sorry, but we just sold our last one.”

Customer: “You guys said you had a banana suit. You should have held it for me.”

Me: “I’m sorry, we’re not allowed to hold costumes unless you buy them over the phone. Is there a different costume I can get you?”

Customer: “I didn’t think I’d need to! I’m not leaving here ’til I get a banana suit!”

Me: “Then you’re not leaving until next Halloween.”

(I just walked away, and my manager gave me a fist bump.)
