If you’ve ever lived in the Atlanta area, you’ll recognize this conversation as one Clark Howard might refer to as “Customer NO-Service.”
We were playing ‘store’ and had this conversation.
Sam: I think you need to have some salad.
Me: May I have some salad please?
S: I don’t have salad.
M: Where can I get salad?
S: You can get it at the store.
M: Isn’t this the store?
S: No- the store is that way.
M: Over here. [walk to where he was pointing] Can I have some salad please?
S: No- the store is THAT way.
M: Can you tell me how to get to the store?
S: You have to go right to go left [Thank you, Lightning McQueen, for adding this conundrum to our daily conversations]
M: Oh. Okay. Here I go.
S: No– you have to go right to go left. That’s right.
M: How about this?
S: No- you go over here.
M: Can you point it to me? Where is the salad store?
S: [big sigh- I am apparently the densest mother on the planet] I will show you.
