    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!”

    Unleashes A Whole Raft Of Problems

    | Atlanta, GA, USA | Money

    (I am a supervisor called to returns for an override.)

    Me: “Hello! I understand we’re returning an inflatable raft?”

    Customer: “Yes, that’s right. I don’t like this one.”

    Me: “Okay, sorry to hear that. Give me just a sec to reverse the transaction. There you go! Anything else?”

    Customer: “No, that’s all, I’m going to shop & look for another raft.”

    Me: “Oh, I’m sorry but it’s a seasonal item, we no longer carry them.”

    Customer: “Oh, alright.”

    *comes back about 20 minutes later*

    Customer: “Excuse me, since you don’t have any more rafts & I need one, can I buy the one I just returned?”

    Me: “Uh, sure!”

    Customer: “Well, since it’s used and it’s the last one, can I get a discount?”

    A Not So Pregnant Pause For Thought

    | United Kingdom | Family & Kids, Money

    Customer: “Can I have an adult and two students for [film]?”

    (The film is rated ‘15’, and the two children with her look like they might not be old enough.)

    Me: “Can I just ask your dates of birth?”

    First Child: “September 1995.”

    Second child: “Umm…”

    Me: “I’m sorry, I can’t sell you the tickets as your son can’t give me a date of birth to confirm he is 15.”

    Customer: “Oh, for God’s sake! He was born in August 1995. They’re my children. I think I know how old they are! Now will you sell us the tickets!”

    Me: “Wait, they’re both your children?”

    Customer: *annoyed* “Yes!”

    Me: “And they were only born a month apart?”

    Customer: “Yes!”

    Me: “You have to be pregnant for nine months.”

    Customer: “Yes! So?”

    Customer: *realises*

    (The customer swears and walks off.)
