In addition to our weekly roundups, each month we’ll be sharing our most popular reader-voted stories.

March Monthly Roundup: This month, we share five stories that show that customers can be bad, but at least they’re not boring!

  1. She Fought The Law, And The Law Won, Part 2:
    Think you’re going to buy booze for your underaged, 16-year-old daughter? Not on this liquor store employee’s watch!
  2. When Press Comes To Shove:
    A blustery customer counts on berating an employee to get his way; what he didn’t count on: the employee’s 6’5″, 250-lb. fiance waiting in the back.
  3. The Height Of (Mt.) Misogyny:
    Misogynists really should go jump off a cliff, but this sexist customer probably couldn’t make it to the top anyway.
  4. Weeding Out The Dumb Ones, Part 2:
    Either this guy’s in the wrong shop, or those are the LARGEST. BONGS. EVER.
  5. So Good She Doesn’t Need A Weapon:
    A little girl learns that although diamonds are forever, mommy’s handcuffs are for her eyes only.

He’ll Grow Up To Be A Fine Customer (From Hell) One Day

| Newport, OR, USA | Bigotry, Family & Kids

(I’m helping visitors touch some of the animals on exhibit. One of the boys in the crowd is getting too rowdy with the snake I have out.)

Me: “I’m going to need you to step back so someone else can have a turn.”

Boy: “Why?”

Me: “You’re being a little to rough with the animal. You can come back later, though.”

Boy: “YOU ARE BEING RACIST!”

Me: “Um…how?”

Boy: “It’s because I’m black!”

(Note: I’m white, and so is the boy.)

Me: “Um, you’re white.”

Boy: “Oh, so now you’re being a reverse racist!” *storms away*

Your Comprehension Of Comprehension Is Incomprehensible

| Illinois, USA | Family & Kids, Language & Words

(I am a bookstore clerk at the local high school. I am talking to a mom who is getting the books her daughter needs.)

Mother: “My daughter doesn’t have a problem with comprehension! She just doesn’t understand the material.”

Practice Sweet Unadulterated Moderation

| North Carolina, USA | Family & Kids, Food & Drink

(A mom, dad, and two small children walk in. The boy sees some of the fresh fruit we keep at the counter and asks for a banana.)

Dad: *to son* “No, you’ve had too much fruit today!”

Mom: *to son* “Yeah, go get some candy instead!”

So Good She Doesn’t Need A Weapon

| New Jersey, USA | Family & Kids, Top

Little girl: “My mom seems unemployed, but I think she’s some kind of secret agent.”

Me: “Why?”

Little girl: “I found handcuffs in her drawer behind the makeup. I can never find her gun or anything else, though.”
