Belt Up

An amalgamation of several people in the annoying customer category.
(For more  splendid examples of daft customer commentary, do see Jen Campbell’s Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops.)

Belt Loops

Have you any other men’s belts?
Those three on the men’s
rail are pathetic.
You do?
A box full? Why
hide them?
Have some of your people
deal with them – simples!
This one – ah, too short;
this one – ah, wrong buckle;
this one – ah, too flimsy;
this one –
I like this one –
how much?
Ok it’s leather. Yes, real
leather. But
two pounds fifty?
I’ve only got thirty pence. No,
I’m not haggling; take it
or leave it. Be
like that.

    Yea! Be like that! And a merry finger waggle to you too!

  3. Yes but that’s an easy one. Those wot enter the shop 25.67 secondsd before official closing time, saying they are looking for an elephant – and that, though you have ones in grey and mud-brown, they really want a yellow/purple tartan one. And, if not now when will you have one in and can they reserve it – only it’s for their great uncle Bulgaria who loves to collect things…
