So I’m at work yesterday and i had this customer.
Me: Hello Karen. I’m calling your because we forgot to call you for your bday and happy belated bday blah blah blah.
Karen: Oh thank you. I can’t go because my friends are not here. One is in Ireland. The other one is in France. Lacy is in Dublin. So i am waiting for them to come back so i can go to the show. What is the show?
Me: buddy Holly Happy Days.
Karen: Oh i love Buddy holly. it’s sad he died in the plane crash. My father died in a crash 25 years ago. He was flying and had a heart attack. I have to visit his grave tomorrow. I need flowers.
Me: Um yeah well i hope you have a good day madam.
Karen: Yeah he likes a special kind of flowers and i can only go to a certain florist. Rob is his name. He knows what flowers i need. Although i am allergic to a certain plant there. My doc tells me to be careful with my allergy. My doc also say i have to be careful with my diabetes
Me: yeah you have to careful with that.
Karen: Yeah the doctor said i have to lay back on all that sugar because I’m gonna lose my foot if i don’t. I don’t’ want to lose my foot. I like my foot. Well my left foot has Arthritis so I’m limping. My doc told that to be careful with the other foot. That is why i have a cane.
Me: Yes the cane, well i hope you have a good day miss.
Karen: oh i will have a good day. My doc always tells me to have a good day. I have to check my meds. Oh my i think i’m out. that’s not good. I have to refill my gout medicine.
Me: yeah Gout ain’t good.
Karen: no sir, but the gout really hurts and i have to take medicine for life for it. Not fun. But that is what the doc gave me. Blah blah blah blah blah.
