Times they are a chang'n

Older Woman: I'd like to speak to your boss dude.
Me: Umm? I don't have a boss dude.
Older Woman: (Snotty)You don't have a manager?
Me: No. I'm the manager.
Older Woman: I thought it would be someone older.
Me: And an man?

She Totally ignores me

Older Woman: I'm collecting donations for (someplace or another)
Me: Do you have something in writing? Leave it with me and we'll see what we can do. Someone can check back in a couple of days.

This is a post from 2008.
TODAY - This happened:

Customer: Can I speak to the Manger?
Me: Sure, what can I do for you?
Customer: I'm looking for the man in charge.
Me: Were you looking for one of the men here for something personal?
Customer: No, I'm looking for a donation for the _________ charity golf tournament.
Me: Okay, well you need to talk to me then.
Customer: There's isn't a man I can ask about it?
Me: Not if you want a donation....

And it's getting less and less likely at this point buddy.... WOW.

Ok, i'm amazed by your ability to keep your cool in this kind of conversations. The problem with them is that they don't listen. And as i can see you know this, cause you're repeating the same thing to them more than once and they still want to see the man in charge :P
