Very Mint Thin-Skinned

, , , | Right | December 31, 2018

(I’m out grabbing some groceries when I notice that the Girl Scouts have a table set up outside selling cookies. I decide to buy some to bring home to my husband as a treat since I know he’s had a rough week.)

Me: “Hi. Can I take two boxes of these, please?”

(The little girl serving me smiles and takes the last two boxes of Thin Mints off the table in front of her, while another little girl turns and begins pulling out a new case to put up. Before she can, however, a woman in line behind me explodes.)

Woman: *in a high-pitched, hysterical voice* “You’re out of Thin Mints?! Unacceptable. UNACCEPTABLE! THIS IS RIDICULOUS!”

(She turns and storms off, ranting loudly.)

Little Girl: *looks at me with wide, shocked eyes* “I… I was putting out a new case. Right now.”

Me: “Sorry, miss. Welcome to retail.”
