Wish They Would Just Man-Go Away

(We serve a mango and banana smoothie at the small bakery and cafe I work at. Bear in mind this cafe is located in Ohio.)

Customer: “Is the fruit in your smoothie locally grown?”

Me: “No, I’m sorry.”

Customer: *in a very annoyed tone* “Well, most restaurants around here try and use local produce and really focus on supporting local farmers.”

Me: “We do, too; almost all of our produce is locally sourced. We just can’t get local bananas and mangos.”

Customer: “I’ve seen some businesses do some pretty amazing things.”

Me: “Well, it’d be pretty d*** amazing if you could find locally grown tropical fruit in Ohio where we get buried the h*** in snow for months every year.”

(I have no idea what he expected me to do, but he argued with me forever.)
