This story involves me, coworker, Customer A and Customer B.
Coworker is helping Customer A with a salad and some deli meat. Customer B walks up the counter. I walk over and ask if I can help her.
She says she's looking. I ask if she'd like to sample any of our salads.
Customer A pipes up and says, "You have to try the sundried tomato and cucumber salad; it's really good."
Me: "Would you like a sample of that one?"
Customer B: "hmm, yeah that does look good. I'll think about it for a minute."
20 seconds later she says, "Yeah why don't you give me a sample of that one."
I grab a sample cup and tasting spoon and start to scoop some of the sundried tomato and cucumber salad when customer A pipes up.
"Excuse me, she wanted to try the mock crab salad, not that one."
Customer B: "No I wanted that one." Customer B tries it and wants just a small container of it. I get that and she leaves the counter.
Customer A says to me, "Learn to pay attention, she wanted the crab salad."
Uh no, we were talking about the other one, which you brought up in the first place and said she wanted a sample of that one.
She leaves and coworker and I just kind of stare at each for a while, trying to figure out what just happened.
