Santa Will Not Be Pleased

| Bellevue, WA, USA | Family & Kids, Holidays

(It’s three weeks until Christmas, and I’m ringing up a customer when her child speaks up.)

Child: “Mommy, when’s Christmas?”

Customer: “When you eat each and every one of the chocolates from the advent calendar, it’ll be Christmas.”

Child: “But I already ate all of the chocolate…”

Sorry, You’re Toast

, | Evans, GA, USA | Family & Kids, Food & Drink

Customer: “Does your kids’ chicken finger meal come with toast?”

(The little boy, about ten, looks horrified at the mention of toast.)

Me: “No, ma’am, it doesn’t.”

(The boy’s face immediately lights up with happiness.)

Customer: “Just add a piece of toast, then.”

Boy: “But mom, I don’t like toast!”

Customer: “You don’t know what you like.” *turns to me* “Add the toast.”

Boy: *looks like he’s about to cry*

Definitely Not On The DIY Channel

| Sydney, Australia | Family & Kids

(I work at a kids clothing store and a customer comes in with his wife. He is holding his newborn baby.)

Customer: “Look what we made!”

The Son You Wish You Had

| Concord, NH, USA | Family & Kids, Holidays

(I am a greeter for the line to get pictures taken with Santa. A young mother and her two-year-old walk in.)

Me: “Hi! How are you folks doing today? Some little guy sure is adorable!”

Mom: “Hi! Oh, thanks! He looks just like Justin Bieber!”

Me: “Er…congratulations?”

Can’t Take The Heat, No Daughter Of Mine

| Massachusetts, USA | Family & Kids

(I’m working in a very specialized area of our store where we make wax models out of our customer’s hands.)

Me: “It’s a little intense for smaller kids, as it’s kind of hot.”

Customer: “My daughter can handle it. She’ll be fine.”

(I begin the process of making the model of the little girl’s hand. She begins to cry.)

Me: “You’re doing fine. We’re halfway done.”

Daughter: “But it’s hot!”

Customer: “Oh, suck it up, you’ll be fine!”
