Discount Store Custy Not Happy with Wrinkled Pants

From Tales From Retail, FuckinHomerunChippah:

Back in college, I worked at a somewhat high end discount clothing/housewares store. I mostly worked at the front, ringing people up for their purchases.

Enter Angry Customer:

Customer: "why are these pants so wrinkled?!?!?"

Me: "Well, they are shipped to the store in boxes, in giant piles. We just sort through it all and put them on hangers and take it out to the floor."

Customer: "WHAT?!? You mean you don't IRON them first??!?"

Me: "...no."

Customer: "You mean, you all don't have an iron and ironing board like in the back or anything?? I've never heard of that!!"

People never cease to amaze me.

I have never heard of a clothing STORE that DOES have ironing utensils in back.

Me: "Ma'am, this is a clothing store, not a laundromat."

Does she really think, that in this economy, that management is going to allow precious hours to be wasted by having someone iron clothes?? Wow....

"Ma'am, you are more than welcome to iron them when you get home."

There's just no other polite way to tell her she's making a scene over wrinkled clothes.

Flutilicious

The store I recently worked at (closed last week) would actually steam the clothes before going out on the sales floor so they wouldn't be wrinkled. I came home with many a steamer burn. It did take a lot less time than ironing...I could steam a rack of about 50 items in about an hour. It was mostly to remove shipping folds so it wasn't always perfect, but good enough.
