Not a real customer

Today I had a lady walk in the door and ask if we sold wrapping paper. I said no, but we offer complimentary gift wrap on items purchased from us. She said she didn't want anything, than asked if we would sell her some of our paper because "she didn't want to wait in line at a real store."

Needless to say, she didn't get any wrapping paper.
