That came WAY out of left field

I work at a store that sells body lotions and make up. I had a few odd customers today but this woman actually made me think "maybe I should back up just encase she knows Im thinking shes crazy and she snaps on me".

Customer: (other store) pointed me in your direction saying you might have what I need. I need a matte eyeshadow because Im allergic to shiny.

Me: Do you know what ingredient your allergic to in shiny eyeshadow? It may not be in our products.

Customer: Shiny! You know, shiny! Im very sensitive!

Me: Ok, well our matte eyeshadows are here.

*I proceed to pull aside the testers for the few matte products we have.*

Customer: Can I try this one?

Me: Sure!

*I go to get a disposable brush, when I turn around the customer has her eyes closed and is holding the tester millimeters from her eye. She opens her eyes to see me staring at her holding out a brush.*

Customer: Im not allergic. I can tell using muscle testing. Im very sensitive! This is a good one! What other colors do you have?

Me: Ummm...

*She spent the next 20 minutes holding various products "testing them" and announcing everything she was allergic to.*

When I got home I googled muscle testing to see if the woman thought she was blessed with special powers or if she followed some New Age health crap...
I found this site: Natural Health Techniques
A wonderful site where you can buy Cough 2oz, Lung Emotional Remedy, and the product information is for "educational purposes only" and they promote Coffee Enemas.

  1. Sounds like something new Starbacks can branch into. Or maybe at the McDonald's drive-thru...
