Seen and Heard

Who: Me, of course, and a smiley cashier Where: Shoppers on Yonge at Charles What: Purchasing holiday chocolates in three varities When: 5:24p.m. on a Thursday night Why: Because my secret santa recipient said she liked peanut M&Ms...and I thought I'd get some goodies for some family members too How...is your frickin customer service?! "Ooooh! These will make you FAT!" the checkout lady says. *blink* *mouth drops open* *blink* Did that seriously just happen? She realizes her gaffe and back peddles a little, but I stop her. "I'm trying to make other people fat. I have enough winter padding, thanks for noticing." She smiles politely. Merry frackin' Christmouse.

Possible replies for future reference:

1. "Really? Is that what happened to you?"

2. "Hmmm. Can you tell me what I eat to become a rude, Christmas spirit crushing asshat like yourself?"

3. "Merry F*cking Christmas to you too b*tch! Now give me my candy before I shove it down your chimney."

4. "Fascinating. Let's see if they have the same effect if I just shove them up your *ss."

I'm kind of partial to #2 myself, although I can see myself using #3 as well.

GWAP has set a precedent! You all must leave a comment INCLUDING how you would respond to it now.

DO IT!

That cashier must really like the taste of toe fungus since she seems to like putting her foot in her mouth.

Some people are twits.

I'm so bad at this.....

"are you telling me from experience?"

"thanks for judging my choices I really respect someone's opinion whose in the customer service industry and obviously knows nothing about it"

okay I can't punish you anymore with my lameass responses!

Wowsa though - I hope you complained!

"they're for a coworker, but i can see why you might want to avoid them. at this point, they might taste like foot."

I find "Are you fucking KIDDING me?" to be an all purpose response for such situations.

What a freak!

Reminds me of the time recently when I was in Kiehl's buying baby lotion as a shower gift for a friend when the salesperson asked me when I was due. I replied, "I'm not pregnant, just fat, and thanks for noticing."
