Your Complaint Cuts No Ice

, , , | Right | December 17, 2019

(I am standing at a register. I have seen a woman wandering the aisles aimlessly and occasionally glancing in my direction.)

Me: “Do you need any help?”

Customer: “Yes, thank you. Do you have any bags of ice?”

Me: “Yes. If you head towards menswear straight down there, it’s the aisle just before.”

(She stares at me.)

Me: “Was there anything else?”

Customer: “Do I look like a man to you?”

Me: “No?”

Customer: “Then why would you tell me to go to your men’s section?”

Me: “Because the ice is in the aisle next to it. You did want ice?”

Customer: “Yes, I did. But I didn’t expect to be accused of being a man at the same time!”

(She threw her basket at me which, despite my attempts to avoid it, hit me on the head. She ran from the building. Unfortunately, she left her handbag in the basket, and police were called regarding the incident. The woman was forced to apologise or risk being arrested, and the store manager banned her.)
