    Would dogs be mans best friend if they realized they are sometimes more intelligent than their owners? Sadly in the world stupid people are allowed to own pets, find out how it can all go horrible wrong from here. Even wild animals cannot escape!

    Small Change Can Make The Difference

    | Boston, MA, USA | Awesome Customers, Money, Pets & Animals, Themed Giveaway

    (During the month of February, my clinic has a special where our rabies vaccine is a much lower price than we would normally have it. I have just dealt with an extremely rude customer, and am prepared for the worst.)

    Me: “Hello again, sir. Was there a problem with anything?”

    Customer: “Did I get a three-year rabies vaccine?”

    Me: “Yup, you did, sir. It shows how long it’s good for right there.”

    (I show him the paperwork.)

    Customer: “Okay, so… Why did you only charge me $8?”

    (The customer pulls his change out of his pocket.)

    Me: “Oh, that’s because this month we have a discount!”

    Customer: “What? Really? That explains why it’s so busy. I was ready to give you back the change you gave me. Thanks!”

    (I had to tell everyone I was working with what happened. To this day, thinking about him during a rough shift brings a smile to my face.)

    How To Treat Employees

    | Atlanta, GA, USA | Bizarre, Pets & Animals

    Customer: “Can you help me find these treats in the large breed size?”

    Me: “Sure!” *goes to shelf and finds treats*

    Customer: “Good girl! Who’s a good girl? You’re a good girl!”

    Acting Like A Total Wallaby

    | Belgium | Pets & Animals

    (My husband and I are visiting an amazing zoo in Belgium that was built on the site of an old estate. In addition to being beautiful, the zoo is relatively open and interactive: you can get up close and personal with many of the animals where safety allows. My husband and I, from the States, are marvelling at the small ditches or rows of bushes where fences and walls would normally be.)

    Me: “This is incredible! They don’t have anything like this back home!”

    My Husband: “Yeah, but you know why, right? Some idiot would see one of the exhibits and immediately think, ‘Dude, I can totally jump that ditch and play with the animals’. Maybe they just have more sense than that here.”

    (Later, I am asking an employee about feeding times and mention what my husband had said.)

    Employee: “Oh, no. We have people like that here, too. Mostly children, but they don’t do much harm. The worst is when it’s an adult. We had a fellow who got drunk and jumped into the kangaroo exhibit and began harassing the animals.”

    Me: “Jeez, what happened?”

    Employee: “Well, our dominant male took offense to him bothering his consort, so he pinned him down and kicked him.”

    Me: “Holy cow! What did you do?”

    Employee: “We let him.”

    How To Train Your Dragon Loving Child

    | Sydney, NSW, Australia | Awesome Workers, Family & Kids, Pets & Animals, Top

    (I’m a customer at a bookshop. As I’m browsing, I overhear a nearby mother spending five minutes patiently explaining to her young daughter that dragons aren’t real. The daughter is only about 3 or 4.)

    Mother: “For the last time, they’re just made up! For fun! They don’t actually exist!”

    Daughter: “But they’re in this book! Look!”

    Mother: “Oh, for… I’ve already explained this. Come on, we’re leaving.”

    Daughter: “Can I buy the dragon book?”

    Mother: “Of course not! That’s the last thing I need.”

    (They make their way over to the cash register, where the mother pays for a few books. The daughter looks up at the salesman with big eyes.)

    Daughter: “Excuse me, mister. Are dragons real?”

    Salesman: *leans in close* “Well, that’s what we have to tell you.”

    (The daughter’s face lights up instantly and the mother lets out an exasperated sigh. That man just made my day, and the day of a tiny little girl who loves dragons.)

    Dinosaur-Brained

    | Melbourne, VIC, Australia | Family & Kids, History, Pets & Animals, Top

    Customer: “Excuse me, will my son like this for his birthday? He loves dinosaurs.”

    (I examine the gift; it’s a set of various plastic fossils.)

    Me: “Well, it depends on how into dinosaurs he is. If he just thinks they’re cool, then it’ll be fine. If he’s into palaeontology at all, though, he’ll be disappointed because none of those are actually dinosaurs.”

    Customer: “What? Don’t be stupid! He loves dinosaurs! I know what a dinosaur is!”

    Me: “Well, right there you have a Pterodactyl, two Synapsids including the famous Dimetrodon, a Plesiosaur, and a Tiktaalik. None of those are dinosaurs. They’re not even all reptiles, or Mesozoic.”

    Customer: “What do you know? God, you kids these days are so rude! I know what a dinosaur is.”

    (She buys the toy set and leaves in a huff. A week later, I’m working as a cashier when she comes back.)

    Customer: “Yes, I’d like to return this.” *shows me the very same fossil toy set*

    Me: “Oh, yes, I remember. Would you like me to help you find a dinosaur toy to get instead?”

    Customer: “You? God! Look, missy, he just didn’t like them because they weren’t scientifically accurate, okay? These are dinosaurs! They lived a thousand years ago! Do you think I’m stupid!?”

    Me: “Ma’am, you clearly are just as intelligent as you present yourself to be.”

    Customer: “Well, I’m glad you realise it.”
