One afternoon a man came upstairs to the rentals department, where he asked me if we had any pinstripe gangster suits. We have a plethora of them, so I started showing him the various colors and types of suits. He went into the dressing rooms to try one and came out with it on. I started pulling fedoras, sidearms, all sorts of things for him to try, both of us having a good time. He ended up loving the whole ensemble.
"I'll take it!" he said, so I sat down at my stool behind my computer and opened the program to begin the transaction. I looked up to ask him a question, and he'd taken off his pants! He was standing there for all the world to see! I didn't know what to do. What do you say? "Excuse me sir, your pants have fallen off,"? "I'm sorry, this is not a pants-free zone."? My mind was racing, trying to think of what I should do without embarrassing him or me. I know that sometimes when someone does something embarrassing, you should do it too to make them feel less alone, but somehow I figured taking my own pants off wasn't the answer. Would a shoe count? I didn't know! So I just stared at his face. O_O He was completely nonplussed. I was trying not to smile from embarrassment and was failing miserably, so while he was cooly finishing the transaction, I had this derpy half-smile-half-not expression on my very red face. Somehow I got through all of my questions, we completed the transaction, he changed back into his clothes and thanked me on the way out.
I continued to sit there in shock.
Yep, we run into some interesting people here.
