Me: Hello, do you have any Fiber Trends sock blockers?
Lady on phone at yarn store: Sock blockers?
Lady: I've never heard of them.
Me: I'm looking at Fibertrends.com, they say you're a supplier. I was just wondering if you do sell them. I would rather buy them from a local store than online.
Lady: What do sock blockers do?
Me: They block socks.
Lady: I knit socks. I have never blocked them. Why do you need to block socks?
Me: (getting annoyed) They're not really for me (lying because I feel stupid for wanting sock blockers, I worked hard this last week and want something frivolous). They're for someone else, they're a gift.
Lady: What do they look like?
Me: Well, they're a two dimensional shape of a sock. Basically, they're flat. And look like a sock.
Lady: Oh, let me ask someone. *muffled sound as she talks to a coworker* She wants to know if we sell trendy sock blockers, she see's them on the internet.
Lady: Sorry, no we do not have them.
Me: OK, thank you!
