So I work at a candy store that sells gelato. Our boss ordered more pumpkin gelato than we could sell, so she told us to hand out big samples of it for free to the people walking by our shop last night (think Dixie cups full of gelato).
I'm standing outside with samples while my coworker is inside. It's our busiest part of the week, as it's during the downtown farmer's market and it is after dinner, so people are starting to walk home and stopping in for dessert. A man with a white beard and glasses wearing a gray sweatshirt walks by. He'll be WG for "weird guy" and I'll be Me.
Me: Would you like to try a free sample of our pumpkin gelato?
WG:(walking up to me) I hate pumpkin!
Me: That's okay, if you go inside we have 23 other flavors you can sample. :)
WG: Well... I guess I can take some anyway. Maybe I'll go in later.
So he takes a sample and obviously he doesn't like how it tastes. He goes straight to a trash can and throws it out. I think he's going to continue walking down the street, but he goes into the store anyway. I think, great, my coworker will give him some other samples and maybe he'll get something.
A few minutes later, he comes back out empty handed and walks up to me.
WG: No luck! I kept waiting for her to help me but she didn't.
Me: Oh, what were you looking for?
WG: I was just looking for malt balls.
(These bins cover the entire wall to the left of the front door and customers serve themselves, there are bags everywhere.)
WG: Well, better luck next time I guess...
And he walks away, awkwardly. I came in when my sample tray was empty and asked my coworker if she had seen him.
Coworker: Yeah, I think I saw him walking around. What about him?
Me: He said he was waiting for you to help him... He wanted malt balls.
Coworker: Oh, I was checking people out the whole time... He never asked me for help.
I don't get some people.
