She then asked about 'frosting' applications for windows. One of my female associates took her back to show her what we had. When my associate came front I said to her "that woman has special needs." My associate said, "but you don't know, she has a teenage daughter who's quadriplegic, she, herself, has Lyme Disease and my possibly lose her arm, and they've been evicted from their home because of mold." "Right," I responded cynically. At this point the customer returned to the paint desk and said, in a very rushed voice, "I can't wait for my paint to be finished. I need to go home. My caregiver is leaving." And I said "your paint is finished, let me load it in your cart for you."
After the customer had left the desk, my female associate said, "oh, that poor, poor woman." And I said, "that woman is nuttier then a fruit cake, and she just handed you a slice." It was either that or she was trying to get free paint. Ah, just call me cynical.
