When The Yogurt Has More Culture Than The Customer

, , , , , | Right | December 2, 2020

I’m a personal shopper. People place grocery orders online for delivery or click-and-collect, and I go around our store following a handset’s orders to put each customer’s shopping in a tray. I’m in the yoghurt aisle when a well-to-do lady approaches me with a question.

Customer: “Where do you have [Obscure Yoghurt Brand]?”

I panic. I know I’ve seen it, but there are only three flavours, so they take up very little space. I try to help her look for it, but I can’t spot it, and she’s clearly had enough of waiting.

Customer: “Obviously, this is why you work here, though I’m surprised, given that you’re clearly too stupid to find this yoghurt.”

Me: “Well, my Masters is in linguistics, not yoghurt…”

Her face fell and then scrunched up, and she stormed out the aisle. I spotted the yoghurt brand about ten seconds later.
