So because the arrival of Summer basically means work will be slow as anything, I’ve decided to start this thread up to detail some of my past and future run ins with customers that bring teh lulz. Hopefully these stories will bring a tear to your eye and a warmth to your heart.
“The Multi Vitamin Mishap”
About a week ago, two Arabic guys (early 20’s) walk into the store with some basic questions for me. The language barrier is usually always an issue when dealing with them so at times I wonder if perhaps there is just a lot of miscommunication going on, but no, the following was what they firmly believed. If they were to take a multi-vitamin, they would indeed get fat. Yes, the added vitamins and minerals would surely turn their frail 120 lb physiques into lumpy fat sculptures.
After I assured them that this really wasn’t the case I began to question them on their diet. On average, they ate 2 times a day, cafeteria style food with the occasional trip to fast food joint off campus. I suggested that maybe taking a multi-vitamin would in fact be a good idea since they were probably deficient in every category known to man. At this point, they began to ask of any other side effects of supplementing a multi into their diet. By this point I was tossing out veiled insults into my recommendations to them and whether they got the point or not, they left shortly after, leaving me to ponder what kind of future does this world have?
