Customer Interaction of the Day #102

Me: “Are you doing alright today?”
Customer: “Yeah, I have a question. Are all your sofas low to the ground like this one?”
“Yes, it’s really just the style. Modern furniture tends to sit a little lower.”
“Even though modern humans are taller?”
“Well, compared to our ancient hominid ancestors I suppose… unless you’re talking about those of Nordic descent, in which case, we’re shorter. Let me know if there’s anything else I can help you with.” I smiled and walked away. I have no idea if that’s really true. I just really wanted him to shut up his stupid face for asking me smart-ass questions.

Actually, after a little research, most scientists agree that humans are taller than they were in the past, but this is mostly due to better living conditions. Ancient Nordic people were, on average, taller than other Europeans, but still shorter than modern humans. Whatever science, this guy was still a dick.

Customer Interaction of the Day is an ongoing series that records
particularly entertaining moments from my life in retail.
