of customers, installment one.
Ok, so I probably wasn't in the best mood this morning--had to be at the company cluster**** meeting at 6 this morning.
Anyway, I'm up on a ladder with several boxes in my hands working on inventory--another reason I probably wasn't in a good mood. This dude comes up, and stands at the base of the ladder with a dumb expression on his face. I kept working, waiting for 5 or 10 seconds for him to say something, because I was pretty danged busy. Not that I mind helping customers--I don't--but it annoys me when they just stand there. So, I look down and say can I help you. He looks up with an emo expression on his face, and says "I have a..a.a kdkfd; "
I reply "What?"
"I have a..a.a kdkfd;__---_-- "
So, I repeat "What," and I cup my hand over my ear.
"i kakd annd adk"
I again repeat "What, I can't hear you" and cup my hand over my ear. I pretty much know what he's saying but his mumbling and extremely quiet manner is annoying the hell out of me.
" I...have ... a QUESTION!" and he sideshifts fack and forth a little like a kid who's been caught with his hand in the cookie jar.
So I say "Let me come down."
I come down, and he sheepishly sticks his hand in his pocket and pulls out a bolt. "I need a nut for this bolt."
I say "ok," and step 3 feet away to where the nuts are and grab the right size he needs right away--took all of two seconds.
He says "Thanks. I'm going to put this on (long and drawn out story that has no relevance to anything is snipped). Do you have a wrench? I need a wrench. Do you have individual wrenches? You know, a tool to fit on this bolt and this nut so I can tighten them? What color are your wrenches" He's starting to talk more now and I regret trying to get him to speak up earlier.
So, I take him to the wrenches. I show him an adjustable crescent wrench that would work well, but he seems to think $8 is too expensive. He then gets into a discussion with the girl with him about what wrench they should get. Finally, he says "We're going to think about it. Thanks."
