Today i receive my favourite-est question to date. It’s such a beautiful moment to remember.
Guest comes up to me.. from the body language, i am positive we were going to have trouble understanding each other.
Me: Afternoon, how are you..?
Guest: hi..ummm.. where is the crotch shop?
Me: (removes the ear piece to the walkie so i can hear better, i must be dreaming) Sorry?
Guest: You have the crotch shop here? where ?
Me: The… crotch shop..?
Me: (blank staring, mouth slackened, mind ablaze with images of various crotches hanging around in a store)
Me: I’m……………… you………. i’m sorry, really sorry, the what?
I didn’t have notepad on me. So i took out the map and tried hard looking for the name. I would think that was the first store i would visit, i wouldn’t have missed it on a map. Guess what the guest was looking for?
We should open one store like it.
Right after Little Miss Crotch, i received another trippy question. I was stationed at the (now new) counter near the food court. The food court, being literally right in front of me.
Guest: Hi.. where is the food court?
Me: Just go straight, there. (gestures with wide open palms towards his destination which is staring us in the face)
Guest: Where? (looks at me instead of my palms) go down?
Me: There!.. just go straight..
Guest looks at the way i pointed.
Me: You are looking at it.. (God. Am i the one who’s hallucinating?)
Guest: (confused staring at the what, to me, looks exactly how a food court would look ) Where??! Go down??
Me: Just go straight.
Guest: Ok. (walks off, still confused)
Me: (is dying to say) If you want, you can go down, come up again.. run around the escalators, do a few push ups, run to the south side and then come back to just go straight. Ta-Da! Food court. Magic.
Sigh. *rubs temples*
