Two Sides Of The Same Very Reasonable Coin

| Vancouver, BC, Canada | Right | June 8, 2014

(Two different customers approach me at the same time to ask for help.)

Customers #1 & #2: “Excuse me!”

Me: “Yes, how may I help you?”

(I soon realize that the customers have no relation to each other, as they ask me for help in two completely different departments.)

Me: “Hmm, how should I do this? Who do I help first?”

(Judging by their body language, neither customer wants to back down. So I reach into my pocket and pull out a coin.)

Me: “All right, we’ll do it this way. Heads or tails?”

Customer #1: “Heads!”

Customer #2: “Guess that makes me tails, then.”

(I flip the coin, and it lands tails.)

Customer #2: “Yes!”

Me: “Okay, ma’am, let’s go. And sir, I’ll be with you as soon as I’m done with her.”

Customer #1: “Fair enough.”

(I wish more customers were that easy to deal with!)
