Time Trout!

, , , , | Right | September 4, 2019

(A lot of people assume that we keep the freshest fish hidden in the back, but if that’s what this customer meant, they chose the weirdest way to ask.)

Customer: “I want rainbow trout for tomorrow.”

Me: “Sure, right over there.”

Customer: “Those have today’s date on them.”

Me: “Yes, because I put them out today.”

Customer: “But I want it for tomorrow. Will it be okay?”

Me: “Of course. Look, the expiry date is four days from now.”

Customer: “I would rather have tomorrow’s date.”

Me: “I… You want fish with tomorrow’s date on it?”

Customer: “Yes.”

Me: “Then you’ll have to come back tomorrow.”

Customer: *stares*

Me: *forced chuckle* “I don’t have a time machine!”

Customer: “I understand.”

(Well, I don’t!)
