I was working last night, and helping a customer at the counter..when I see an older woman get into line...she had just walked in and went straight to the line. At the line there is a small sign that reads "please wait" and woman is standing right there.

Me: :wave:

Me: yes ma'am how can I help you...

SW: the sign here says please wait.

Me: yes ma'am but now I can help you if you'd like to just step up to the counter. (I'm thinking she wants to check to see if we have a movie, or pay a late fee or something).

SW: but I'm not done shopping yet.

Me: well is there something I can help you find then?

Sw: not really I just saw the sign that says please wait...and am now waiting.

me: :confused::shrug: ma'am thats the line for those waiting to check out or if they have questions.

Sw: oh...so I don't have to wait here?

Me: no ma'am...

That is teh awesomesauce. I'll bet she's the type that will stand in a line without knowing what it is for, and then complain (sweetly) that it wasn't what she expected it was. She could've done it to see what kind of reaction she'd get. I have a friend who does EXACTLY the same kind of thing, taking the meanings of signs like that literally, things like that. It can be quite fun to see what the sales people do.

Maybe she was thinking a train was going to pass by, so she was waiting for it to pass, then someone would remove the sign...hey, maybe you should have made a sign "give all you cash to the cashier."

Weeks later, her emaciated body was found in front of her refridgerator, holding an orange juice carton with the word "concentrate" on it.

I've moved this into "Brain Burps", because she wasn't mean and nasty about it.

But wow. That. Is. Incredibly. Stupid. :lol:

How does she ever get past a STOP sign? It never changes to GO.

Things like this amuse me.
