D. only after the customer sat down, removed his sunglasses, and sighed exhaustedly.
E. only after he sat down, removed his sunglasses, and gave an exhausted sigh.


Pronoun Referent:
A, B and E are out on ambiguous pronoun. We cant tell whether "HE" is referring to the Owner or the Customer.

Parallelism Error:
In C, "Was Sighing" is not parallel to "Sat" and "Removed".

Therefore D is the correct answer IMO.
