Those French And Their Silly Words

, , , , , | Right | January 12, 2022

I am shopping for an online customer in our bread aisle when an elderly man approaches me, holding his phone out and looking confused.

Customer: “Can you help me? I need a ‘back-wet.’”

Me: “I’m not sure I understand. Do you know what a ‘back-wet’ is? If you do, I can help you figure out what area of the store it’s in.”

Customer: “I don’t know. My wife texted me the grocery list and I’ve never seen this word before in my life.”

Me: “If you don’t mind, can I take a look at the list?”

He shows me his phone.

Me: “Oh! A baguette! They are over on a cart in our produce section with the bakery bread. Let me walk you over.”

I show him our baguettes and hand one to him.

Customer: “Skinny bread? My wife always finds weird things she likes and then sends me to buy them without explaining what they are! It’s a good thing I asked someone who knows their bread. Some other employee might have just told me it’s bread, and I would have bought a regular loaf! Oh, boy, I would have been in the doghouse for that!”
