    Not Promoting Decent Behavior

    , | TN, USA | At The Checkout, Bad Behavior, Family & Kids, Food & Drink

    (I am working the front at a fast food restaurant. I am ringing up two ladies (mother and daughter) up. They are regulars.)

    Me: “Hello, how may I help you?”

    Daughter: “Hi, I have this coupon: buy one get one free breakfast sandwiches.”

    Me: “All right, which sandwiches would you like?”

    (They order two sandwiches, one more expensive than the other. I promo the more expensive one off.)

    Daughter: *to mother* “Haha, she only charged us $1.69!”

    Mother: *mockingly* “Smart employees!” *snorts*

    Me: “I did it to be nice, but I’m definitely not doing it for you again.”

    The Paint Is In Aisle Five; Prepare To Die

    | TX, USA | Bizarre, Family & Kids, Movies & TV

    (My 20-year-old son goes to a craft store with me. He has long hair, pulled back in a ponytail, slightly ratty jeans, and an oversized t-shirt with a small name-tag which says ‘hello my name is Inigo Montoya.’)

    Random Customer: *approaches my son* “Where are the buttons?”

    (My son turns at looks at me, with a ‘help me’ expression. I walk over.)

    Me: “The buttons are over that way.”

    (My son and I look at each other and laugh. We then go to a second craft store.)

    Other Random Customer: *approaches my son* “Where is the paint?”

    (Again I was able to point the woman in the right direction. My son vowed never again to shop while wearing that shirt.)

    Sunday Funday

    | London, England, UK | Extra Stupid, Family & Kids

    Customer: “It’s a Sunday! You all shouldn’t be working; I feel so sorry for you.”

    Me: “I’d rather be home, but the shops stay open so we have to work.”

    Customer:  “Why don’t they just stay closed?”

    Me: “Well if people didn’t shop on Sundays, there would be no need for us to open.”

    Customer: “They should cancel all Sunday shopping so that you can be home with your family.”

    Me: “I’d sure love that! Maybe you should be home with yours, too?”

    Customer: “But my family is here! We’re all shopping together!”

    You’d Be A Fool Not To

    | Bay Area, CA, USA | At The Checkout, Awesome Customers, Family & Kids

    (A woman and her six-year-old son walk into my store. She asks my coworker for help, while her son makes his way over to a case containing common and semi-precious stones. They are the only two in the store, so I have fun showing him some of the stones. He has picked up an egg-shaped piece of pyrite – also known as fool’s gold.)

    Son: “Mom! Can I have it?!”

    Mom: “I don’t know, baby. How much is it?”

    Me: “It’s [price under $5], ma’am.”

    Son: “So can I, Mama? Pleeeaaassseee?”

    Mom: “Why do you want it so badly?”

    Son: *looks thoughtful for a moment* “Because it’s AMAZING, and I want to fill my room with AMAZING things.”

    Mom: *almost under her breath* “Well, I don’t see how I can argue with that.”

    Underwear Unaware

    | PA, USA | Bad Behavior, Family & Kids, Liars & Scammers

    (My place of work is fairly well known in my town and the surrounding area. My boss’s wife occasionally works in the shop.)

    Customer: “Oh, you know, I’m great friends with [Boss]. We go way back.”

    Boss’s Wife: “Oh, really? That’s funny, because I’ve been washing his underwear for ten years and I have absolutely no idea who you are!”
