overheard at the grocery store...

Manager: ...." I'm sorry ma'am"

Customer: "I just don't like it that you only carry soft toilet tissue."

Manager: "There really isn't anything I can do to help you."

Customer: "If you buy the soft tissue, people like how it feel and they use more and stop up the toilet."

Manager: "Again ma'am, I'm sorry. I have no control over the softness of the toilet tissue."

Me: (running to my car so I can laugh my butt off) hahahahahahahahaha!!!!

this is a true story and written as it was heard...

That poor store clerk, I'm sure his face was hurting because he wanted to laugh just as hard. That is too funny.

Betty said...

Ha, ha, I thought sure that was a joke. Funny.

Melissa said...

You have to be kidding me? She needs to head to the local hospital and steal a roll or two...

I don't think they can even call that 1-ply.

I would have had to laugh, too.

Oh Man! You should have offered her your old phone books!

It would make an excellent commercial! "Blah-blah toilet tissue is so soft, it'll guarantee to clog your toilets"

how funny! what's even funnier is that i saw a commercial for charmin the other day (i think it was charmin) where they're coming out with super soft OR super strong...so, harder rougher paper so you can 'wipe better' or something. interesting commercial. luckily they use cute cartoon bears to drive the point home.

COL! (cackle out loud!)

Too funny! I buy Scott tissue because the soft tissue disappears so quickly. But stopping up the toilet? And the clerk needed to know this why? I like the phone book idea. :)

BTW - I love your theme song! And Drake's jacket.

Michelle said...

No way!! That is too funny!! I don't think I could have made it that long without laughing.

Complaining about TP being too soft? Seriously?

What is she like at a restaurant?

"Waiter, my steak tasted too good and my ice cream was too cold."

Lady, life cereal is on aisle seven. You really need to get one, so stock up.

Gustogirl said...

Can it be too soft? She must be thick-skinned, literally! That is too funny!!

It must really suck to be a grocery store manager. I accidentally bought a 24-pack of Scott tissue (they lied! I believed that they were "softer than ever"!) and we have been miserable ever since.

Only twelve more rolls to go...

People are crazy! I thought that was a joke - hilarious!

And now you know why I use a bidet.

Store clerk, "Gee sorry to hear that--can I show you where the plungers are?"

Manager or not, nice or not, I would have totally laughed at her.

Cecily R said...

Heh. I so would have had to duck out and laugh my rear off when she left if I was the clerk. I am SO bad at keeping that kind of laughter in. GREAT story!

Oh man, thanks for the laugh!!!
