"Pardon me sir, how much of this garland should I buy for my front door?"
I looked down from the ladder I was working on, and below me there was a woman holding several strands of pine garland. Granted, there were two other female employees working on the floor right next to her, but hey, I guess the guy on the ladder ten feet in the air was more accessible.
"Well, I am not sure how large your door is, but I am sure two would be plenty."
"I want to make sure I have enough. How long are these?"
"They are six feet each Ma'am."
"Will that be enough?"
My Assistant Manager looked up from her task "Your average door is about 8 feet. Providing you don't have a custom door, two will be plenty."
The customer nodded and gave a quick half smile in her direction.
"So—SIR, should I buy two or three?"
