    Young Boys Display Monstrous Behavior

    | TX, USA | Bizarre, Family & Kids, Holidays, Theme Of The Month

    (I work in a costume shop, and I see a six- or seven-year-old boy looking through the aisle.)

    Me: “Hey there, little guy! Are you looking for a costume?”

    Boy: “Yeah! I’m gonna be a clown, zombie, vampire, werewolf, monster!”

    (The mother of the boy comes around the corner.)

    Mother: “Sweetie, you can only be one, so just choose one.”

    Boy:” Okay, can I be a clown monster werewolf vampire?”

    Me: “But not a zombie?”

    Boy: “Oh yeah, and zombie!”

    Me: “How about we stick two of them together? You can be a werewolf zombie, or a clown monster, or a vampire clown, even.”

    Boy: “Ooh! I want to be a vampire clown. Can I be a vampire clown, please? I want lots of blood.”

    Mother: “Do you even have a vampire clown costume?”

    Me: “We have clown and vampire costumes separately. I’d say a clown outfit, some vampire teeth, and some blood should make the costume right.”

    Boy: “Do you have lots of blood?”

    (I point to the rack with small tubes of fake blood.)

    Me: “We only have these.”

    Boy: “No, I want lots of blood.”

    Me: “Well, I’m sure it’ll have enough—”

    Boy: *serious face* “No. I want lots of blood. I’ll just have to take yours…”

    Hoping They Were Born Yesterday

    | Houston, TX, USA | Food & Drink, Holidays, Liars & Scammers, Theme Of The Month

    (I work at a bakery franchise that specializes in bundt cakes. On loyalty customers’ birthdays, they have the opportunity to come into the store and get a free mini cake. The following exchange happens the week before Halloween over the phone.)

    Me: “Hello! Thank you for calling [Franchise Name]; how may I help you?”

    Caller: “Yeah, hi. I was just calling about the birthday bundtlet? I didn’t get one.”

    Me: “Oh, geez, sorry about that. When did you come in?”

    Caller: “I didn’t. I never got the email with the coupon on it.”

    Me: “Okay. When did you sign up for the loyalty program?”

    Caller: “Um, it was for my cousin’s birthday, so it was a while ago, and…”

    (The customer proceeds to ramble on for a minute or so, making me suspicious that she signed up after her birthday.)

    Me: “Okay, miss. If you come in with your ID, to prove that your birthday was within a week of today, I’ll check to make sure you’re on the loyalty program and get you that cake.”

    Caller: “Oh, my birthday was in August. But my husband’s birthday is in a week, so I’ll just get a bundtlet for then.”

    Me: “No, that won’t work. I’m sorry.”

    Caller: “God, I f****** hate this store. You never work with your customers!”
