Degolar's Customer Service Story

I meant to share this when it happened a few weeks ago, but forgot until I was accused of being mistaken for a nun.

---------------

PATRON: (Walking toward me looking slightly put-out and in a hurry; in a demanding tone) I can't figure out [something] on the computer. Can you help me?

ME: (Rising from my chair and beginning to walk toward her/her computer; pleasantly) I'd be glad to. Let's go take a look at your computer.

PATRON: (Wordlessly gathers up her preschooler, turns her back on me, and walks into the family restroom)

---------------

5-10 minutes later . . . (Patron emerges, says, "OK, I'm ready now," and I show her what she needs to know)

---------------

5-10 minutes later . . .

PATRON: (Walking toward me looking slightly put-out and in a hurry; in a demanding tone) I'm still having trouble figuring it out. Can you help me some more?

ME: (Rising from my chair and beginning to walk toward her/her computer; pleasantly) I'd be glad to. Let's go take a look at your computer.

PATRON: Come on, [Billy]. (Gathers up her preschooler, turns her back on me, and walks into the family restroom)

See the thing you aren't realizing is that "computer" is a sexual slang for "restroom." See she wanted her kids to learn some sex education by example and you just didn't get it. Man, you could have really scored dude. AND with an audience. Some people would pay top dollar for that.

Now before anyone goes and burns me at the stake for this comment, it is a joke and is no way meant to be taken literally.

But dude, you could have totally scored.
