When Even Mother Nature Is Telling Them To Shut Up

, , , , , , , | Right | May 17, 2022

I am selling British-style fish and chips at the beach. They are very popular with the beachgoers… and the seagulls! I warn everyone to be careful around the critters when walking away with their food, but there’s always one person…

Customer: “A seagull stole my fish!”

Me: “Yikes! Yeah, they do tend to do that.”

The customer just stares at me.

Me: “Was there anything else, ma’am?”

Customer: “Well? Aren’t you going to do anything?”

Me: “Would you like to buy another fish?”

Customer: “You need to give me another one for free!”

Me: “Sorry, ma’am, but it’s a natural hazard for being on a busy beach. You need to watch out for the seagulls.”

Customer: “You work on the beach! The seagulls are part of the beach! Therefore, they’re your responsibility, and you owe me another fish!”

At this point, a seagull has landed close to the moaning customer and started honking super loudly. Another customer in my line speaks up to the moaning customer:

Customer #2: “When I can’t tell the difference between a honking seagull and an entitled blowhard like you, then you should take the hint. Go away!”

The moaning customer, shocked into silence for a moment, was about to kick off again when yet ANOTHER seagull flew down and started honking. Realizing she was defeated, she harrumphed and stormed off.

The birds followed her.
