    Hell In A Recycle Basket

    | Bloomington, IL, USA | Family & Kids, Movies & TV, Religion

    (A mom, dad, and their son walk out of a 3D movie and are throwing their 3D glasses into the recycling bin.)
     
    Son: “Can I keep my glasses?”
     
    Mother: “No, we have to recycle them.”
     
    Son: “What if I don’t?”
     
    Mother: “Uh, well…then you go to purgatory!”

    Making A Big Concession To Customers

    | CA, USA | Family & Kids, Movies & TV

     (I’m helping a middle aged man carry the items he bought from the concession stand to his theater.)
     
    Me: “So, who are you here with?”
     
    Customer: “My son.”
     
    (We walk into the theater, and the man sees his son.)
     
    Customer: “Son, look what I brought you! A girl!”

    When Flippers Attack

    | UK | Family & Kids, Pets & Animals

    Child: “Mum, what’s that?” *points to dolphin skeleton*

    Mother: “That’s a dolphin, dear. It eats people.”

    Much Ado About Nothing (Inside)

    | Columbus, OH, USA | Crazy Requests, Family & Kids

    (Note: this takes place a week before Christmas in a store packed full of people. I am the only one operating the registers when the phone rings.)

    Me: “Thank you for calling , how can I help you?”

    Other Store: “I am sending a customer your way for a game. The system says you have one left.”

    (Sure enough, a customer shows up for a very popular game. When I begin to ring her out, I explain that even though the plastic is removed, it is a brand new game.)

    Customer: “That is not a brand new game!”

    Me: “I assure you it is, madam. We must remove all discs from the cases if they are being displayed on the floor, and this is my last copy.”

    Customer: “It has been opened! It’s been played! You’re lying to me!”

    (At this point, she turns to the long line behind her and starts yelling at everyone in line.)

    Customer: “Can you believe this?! This is ridiculous! This game is for a child! I can’t give an opened game to a child for Christmas!!”

    (Without missing a beat, the entire line opens their game cases. All of them are empty.)

    Customer: “None of you love your children!” *storms out*

    What What It’s A Butt

    | Chicago, IL, USA | Family & Kids, Pets & Animals

    (A mother comes in looking to get a hamster for her four children. They range in age from 3 to 10.)

    Mother:  ”Excuse me, miss?”

    Me:  ”How may I help you?”

    Mother:  ”Can you tell me if this hamster is a girl?”

    (I look at the hamster in question. It’s most definitely male.)

    Mother, to me: *quietly* “Just say it’s a girl.”

    Me: “Yes, it’s a girl.”

    Mother, to children: “Yes, this one’s a girl. We can call her Jessie.”

    Child:  ”What’s that hanging off the back of the hamster?” *points to the hamster’s prominent testicles*

    Mother: *looks at me in desperation*

    Me:  ”Er…that’s…”

    Mother:  *frantic look of desperation*

    Me:  ”…its butt.”

    Mother:  *look of relief*

    (They ended up buying the hamster in spite of its large…butt.)
