    They Crossed The Line

    | Orlando, FL, USA | Awesome Customers, Top

    (A group of girls is cutting people in a long line for a roller coaster. They try and cut the guy behind me.)

    Guy Behind Me: “Woah, hold up!”

    Group Of Girls: “Excuse me!”

    Guy Behind Me: “I’m not letting you cut me!”

    (Everyone in line who has been cut starts to side with the guy behind me. The girls start screaming when out of nowhere, a security guard appears.)

    Security Guard: *to one of the girls* “Ma’am, please come with us.”

    (The security guard escorts the group of girls out of the line.)

    Guy Behind Me: “Na na na na, na na na na!”

    Everyone In Line: “Hey hey hey, Goodbye!”

    Screaming For Horse Power Makes You Hoarse

    | Sacramento, CA, USA | Awesome Customers, Transportation

    (Customer #1 has come in to exchange her vehicle, as the original car had a mechanical problem. Although she is visibly frustrated, she has remained polite during the entire exchange.)

    Customer #1: “If I seem b****y at all to you, I apologize. I am just so annoyed at this car!”

    Me: “If there is anybody that should be apologizing, it should be us. We should have checked the car better.”

    Customer #1: “Well, you are doing a wonderful job, and I just have to remind myself not to get mad at you. It is not your fault, and you are the one helping me. The last thing I want is to get upset at you in particular!”

    Me: “Ma’am, even with how frustrated you are feeling, you are still one of the politest customers we have had all day.”

    (As we are finishing the exchange, Customer #2 comes in being helped by my co-worker.)

    Customer #2: “This is bulls***! Last time I was here, my insurance paid for a much nicer car than what you’re giving me! Why are you lying to me?”

    Coworker: “Sir, I assure you, this is the car that your insurance company will cover.”

    (While Customer #2 continues his swearing rant, Customer #1 talks to me.)

    Customer #1: “This is why I am glad I was able to keep my cool. I feel better knowing that I didn’t end up acting like that!”

    Me: “I told you. Even upset, you are one of the nicest customers we have here!”

    Time Waits For Slow Man, Part 2

    | Waynesville, NC, USA | At The Checkout, Awesome Customers, Top

    (I’m in line at a grocery store in a tiny town in the North Carolina mountains. In front of me is an old woman who’s moving rather slowly. Behind me is a young suit who has no patience.)

    Old Woman: “Now is this one on sale, sugar?”

    Young Suit: *muttering loudly behind her* “This is bulls***.”

    Old Woman: “I got me two, no, three coupons.”

    Young Suit: *even louder* “Some of us have places to be.”

    Old Woman: “I think I got me two pennies, darling. Just a minute.”

    Young Suit: “Come on, come on, get your a** in gear!”

    Old Woman: “Young man, if you was a-wantin’ to get there so early, you should have left home sooner!”

    Someone Is Telling Porkies

    | Youngstown, OH, USA | Awesome Customers, Food & Drink, Top

    (My wife and I are eating at an Indian restaurant. An older couple has finished their meal in the booth next to ours; the server has brought them their bill.)

    Customer: “Are you sure this was lamb curry? It tasted like pork.”

    Server: “Yes, sir. We do not serve pork.”

    Customer: “I’m not calling you a liar, but it sure tasted like pork.”

    Server: “We do not have any pork on the menu, sir.”

    Customer: “Well, all I know is, it tasted like pork.”

    Server: “Sir, we do not even have any pork in the building.”

    Customer: “Well, I don’t know about that, but I’m telling you, it tasted like pork!”

    My Wife: *to me, but loudly enough for them to hear* “Didn’t stop him from eating it all, though.”

    (The customer glares at us, then silently hands the server his credit card. They leave quickly when she brings it back.)

    Server: *to my wife* “Thank you so much!”

    You Won’t Be-Leaf It

    | Vancouver, BC, Canada | Awesome Customers, Top, Transportation

    (I am on the bus. There was a rather severe windstorm the previous night.)

    Passenger: “Why are we stopping in the middle of the road?”

    Driver: “There’s a fallen tree in the road.”

    (The passenger talks to his companions for a few seconds.)

    Passenger: “Can you let us off?”

    Driver: “Why?”

    Passenger: “We’re going to move the tree.”

    (The passenger is a rather skinny looking guy.)

    Driver: “…Sure.”

    (The passenger and his friends get off the bus, then proceed to drag the fallen tree out of the road.)

    Driver: “Well, I’ll be…”

    (Thanks to the passengers who cleared it, and to the bus driver who let them off to do it—since it’s against policy to let them off at any place but a proper bus stop.)
