    Wheeling And Dealing With Reality

    | Alberta, Canada | At The Checkout, Money

    (We sell pepperoni sticks for two for one dollar. A customer brings up a box which consists of 40 sticks.)

    Me: “That will be twenty dollars.”

    Customer: “What? Why?”

    Me: “Because they are two for one, and twenty is half of forty.”

    Customer: “Oh, I thought the whole box was only fifty cents. That would be an awesome deal.”

    Me: “Well, it’s still cheaper than most places.”

    Customer: “Yes, but the one in my mind was better!”

    This Is Why We’re In A Recession, Part 6

    | Orlando, FL, USA | Money

    Customer: “Wait, that’s only supposed to be twenty dollars cheaper.”

    Me: “Yes sir, that’s after the mail-in rebate. You have to send in the paperwork and proof of purchase.”

    Customer: “Well why don’t you give me the discount now and send in the rebate yourself?”

    Me: “No, that’s not how this works. You are responsible for sending in the rebate yourself.”

    Customer: “You mean you’re making me responsible for my own money?”

    H2-Woah

    | Sydney, Australia | Money, Movies & TV

    (At the cinema the water is really expensive, the bottle we sell costs $5.10 but anywhere else it would be $2.)

    Me: “Hi what can I get you?”

    Customer: “I’ll just grab a water thanks.”

    Me: “Sure, that’ll be $5.10.”

    Customer: *shocked* “$5.10!?”

    Me: “Yeah, sorry, just our prices.”

    Customer: “But it’s water. You know that s*** comes from the sky right?”

    Penny For Your Thoughtlessness

    | Westchester, NY, USA | At The Checkout, Money

    (I am working as a cashier at a gourmet food store. A lady walks up with one item and a giant jar full of pennies. I ring her up.)

    Me: “That will be three dollars ma’am.”

    Customer: “Okay, here you go.”

    (She puts the jar down on the counter.)

    Me: “I’m sorry ma’am, what is the jar for?”

    Customer: “It’s how I’m paying. Are you blind?”

    Me: “I’m sorry ma’am, do you have any cash?”

    Customer: “No I don’t! I’m just paying in pennies for the fun of it. Get counting!”

    (She proceeds to dump the pennies onto the counter. I finish counting out the 300 pennies.)

    Customer: “Could you have taken any longer?”

    (She storms off. The next customer walks up with just one item.)

    Customer #2: *without missing a beat* “I know this is going to be $5.01. Can you spare a penny?”

    No Chance Of Defying Gravity

    | Texas, USA | Crazy Requests, Money

    Customer: “I bought tickets for Wicked on Broadway and I want a refund.”

    Me: “Okay, was your show postponed or canceled? That’s the only time we can give refunds.”

    Customer: “Well, I wasn’t able to watch the show so I want my money back.”

    Me: “Why were you unable to watch the show?”

    Customer: “When we got to our seats my husband felt sick from being so high up and we had to leave.”

    Me: “When you purchased the tickets were you aware that they were in the balcony?”

    Customer: “The woman told me they were in the balcony but I didn’t know what that meant. I know what a balcony on a house is, but a theater isn’t a house. I’m not stupid.”

    Me: “If you weren’t sure about the seat placement, why didn’t you ask for clarification?”

    Customer: “I didn’t want to sound stupid. I’m not stupid!”
