Daughter works for large supermarket chain. I love hearing about her work life. For example, this conversation with a customer.
Customer: "I'd like to return this shower head please."
Daughter: "No problem. Can I ask what the problem is? Is it faulty or did you just change your mind?"
Customer: "Oh I got home and realised I didn't have a shower."
Like, dude, wtf?
@jac I don't return products often, but when I do, I'll be inventing the most absurd reason possible from now on.
Although "This is an ignition coil for a 2001-2005 Mondeo, but my Mondeo is a *late* 2005 Mondeo and it's incompatible, and also beyond economic repair, and also stolen" is both absurd and true.
@jackdeeth I think it's pretty hard to shock retail workers, they really do see and hear it all. But I wish you well with your endeavours! :)
@stardot That's around the right ballpark, yeah.
