You Need Thick Skin To Sell Kayaks

, , , , | Right | May 24, 2022

I work in a store that specializes in clothing and outdoor recreation equipment. A guy enters my store.

Me: “Good morning! How can I help you?”

Customer: “Uh, yeah, y’all got kayaks?”

Not only do we carry kayaks and canoes, but we have several attached to the OUTSIDE of the store, the pillars INSIDE the store, and HANGING from the CEILING of the store!

Me: “Yes, sir, we do. What kind were you interested in?”

Customer: “Seal skin.”

Me: “Excuse me?”

Customer: “SEAL SKIN! Do y’all have seal skin kayaks?”

Me: “No, sir, we don’t.”

Customer: “Well, why NOT?”

Me: “Well, sir, for one thing, the cost would be prohibitive. For another, I believe it’s illegal here in the US for anyone other than the Inuit people to catch and butcher seals.”

Customer: “You don’t know s***!”

And he walked out muttering to himself. I wish him the best of luck in finding a retail store that openly sells illegal products, far, far away from the source of said illegal product.
