This Is A Bad Sign, Part 4

, , , | Right | November 16, 2021

I oversee the self-checkout at a big home improvement store. Right next to the self-checkout is our indoor plant display. The display has an overhang of hanging house plants. As I stand there, a customer walks up.

Customer: “Do you have any plants? I want some and can’t find them anywhere!”

I laugh a little because I think they’re making a joke about the large number of house plants.

Customer: *Glaring* “I don’t know what you think is so funny. I am looking for a plant for my living room!”

Me: “Um, like those?”

I point at the huge display, part of which is literally hanging over the customer’s head. A spider plant (Chlorophytum comosum), affectionately nicknamed Jumbo, is currently making affectionate acquaintance with my shoulder as we speak.

Customer: “You all could make a clearer display.”

Me: “No, we literally couldn’t without physically hitting you with it. Have a nice day!”

The customer tried to complain to the manager, but he had been standing a few feet to my left and just laughed.
