(A customer walks to the counter. Before I can even acknowledge her, she is looking around and frantically waving to get someone’s attention. I stop what I’m doing, and walk over)
Me: May I help you?
(She looks at the shrimp silently for awhile, without looking up at me)
Customer: Is this shrimp fresh?
Me: Yes, ma’am. Would you like some?
Customer: (still having a conversation with her friend across the aisle) Yeah. John was thinking about going.....
(She looks up and sees I’m waiting to hear her order. )
Customer: (to herself) Let’s see.....five people.....three shrimp per person.....hmmmm....(to me) Give me 20 shrimp.
(She walks away. I bag up and price her shrimp.)
(A little while later she walks back to the counter to grab her shrimp)
Customer: How many shrimp did you put in here?!?
Me: You asked for 20.
Customer: (to herself) five people....four per person.....(to me) Put five more shrimp in here.
(She walks away again. I open her bag, throw in 5 shrimp and reprice it)
(She returns again)
Customer: Better put five more shrimp in!
(She walks away. I put 5 more shrimp in. This time, I wait until she comes back- just in case she wants more)
(She looks at me waiting to reweigh her shrimp )
Customer: What are you waiting for?!?!?
