    Bad Re-action Figure

    | Los Angeles, CA, USA | Family & Kids, Themed Giveaway

    (I am browsing the board games in the toy aisle. I am on the border of the action figures, and the dolls aisles. A mother and young daughter walk by.)

    Mother: “Boys have so much cooler toys.”

    Daughter: “What?”

    Mother: “Don’t you want a boy toy?”

    Daughter: “No!”

    Grand Theft Innocence, Part 5

    | USA | Family & Kids, Technology, Themed Giveaway

    (The new ‘Grand Theft Auto’ game has just been released, and my coworker and I have been very adamant on informing all parents of the content, going so far as to read off the ESRB rating site as needed to make sure they’re alright with the game. A 14-year-old boy and his mother come in.)

    Son: “Yeah, I’m here for the new GTA game.”

    Me: “Alright. Just to check, ma’am, are you alright with the M rating on this? It’s got a lot of objectionable content including—”

    (I read off the back of the case.)

    Mother: “…I don’t know.”

    Son: “It’s fine!”

    Me: “According to the people who rate these, there’s also male genitalia in a non-sexual context involving cult members and necrophilia. There’s also a torture sequence.”

    Mother: “No! Absolutely not! We’re not getting it.”

    Son: “YES WE ARE! YOU’RE GOING TO GET THIS FOR ME!”

    Mother: “No. We’re leaving.”

    Son: “I’M BUYING IT!” *looks to me expectantly*

    Me: “She is your mother, and she said no. I’m not able to sell this to you.”

    Son: *to mother* “YOU CAN’T TELL ME NO! YOU’RE GOING TO GET IT! THIS IS A F****** WASTE OF TIME! I’LL JUST COME BACK WITH DAD AND HE’LL GET IT FOR ME!”

    Mother: “You do not use that language with me! That’s it, we’re leaving. NOW!”

    (The mother storms off, forcing the son to leave. I turn to my boss and other customers who are staring after them in shock.)

    Me: “And that, right there, is why we make sure to advise on the content.”

    Sea Of Electricity

    | NV, USA | Family & Kids, Health & Body, Themed Giveaway, Top

    (I’m handing out inner tubes for a popular water slide. Several young men come up; one of them has a tattoo on his side that makes it look like his skin is peeling away to reveal mechanical inner workings. Shortly after they get in line, two little girls come up. They stare at the tattooed man for a few moments, and then one taps him on the leg.)

    Girl #1: “Are you sure you can go in the water?”

    Tattooed Man: “Uh… I’m sure I’ll be fine.”

    Girl #1: “But what about that?” *points to his tattoo* “My mommy says electric stuff can’t get wet.”

    Tattooed Man: *grinning* “Oh, don’t worry. I’m an underwater explorer robot. I’m built for that stuff.”

    Girl #2: “So you won’t break? Even if you get water all inside you?”

    Tattooed Man: “Nope!”

    Girls #1 & #2: *gaping at him* “Wow…”

    Do As You’re Told Or You’re On Your Bike

    | USA | At The Checkout, Family & Kids, Themed Giveaway

    (A group of young kids comes into the store. One of them is running around, asking questions without paying attention to the answers, being messy, and generally being annoying. Also, the store is going to be shut down in a few weeks, which has understandably left all of us on edge.)

    Polite Kid: “I’d like this one, please.”

    Me: “Sure! That’ll be—”

    Rude Kid: “My friend wants this one!” *shoves another game and gift card into my face*

    Me: “Did you want to do this in the same transaction as this friend, or a different one?”

    Rude Kid: “Different one!”

    Me: “Then you’re going to have to wait.”

    Rude Kid: *turns to friend* “Oh, hear that? You gotta wait.”

    (I finish the transactions, and watch the kids mess around in the store.)

    Rude Kid: “Yeah, so, we’ll have to come back tomorrow. I’ll be loaded up again by then; I’m getting $20!”

    (The group starts to leave. Another customer comes in and approaches me.)

    Customer: “Hey, I wanted to let you know those bikes are blocking the door.”

    (I nod to the customer and turn to the kids who are heading for the door.)

    Me: “Hey, just so you know; next time you can’t leave your bikes there.”

    Rude Kid: “Not like it matters, since you’ll be shut down soon anyway.”

    Me: “Next time, we won’t sell you anything if you leave those bikes there. Use the bike rack, or don’t come in again.”

    (The rude kid finally shuts up and leaves quickly.)

    They Have No Drive

    , | Markham, ON, Canada | Bizarre, Family & Kids, Food & Drink, Themed Giveaway

    (I am working in the drive-thru window. I am talking to a customer and we both notice a group of four young teens WALKING down the drive-thru lane.)

    Customer: *laughs* “Don’t you love how silly kids are? Well, good night!”

    (The customer leaves, and the teens approach the drive-thru window.)

    Teen: “Yea, hi. I want to order.”

    Me: “Yea, sorry. Unfortunately I can’t serve you here unless you are in a car. You are welcome to come inside though.”

    Teen: “What are you talking about? We are in a car, see! I’m the driver holding the wheel.” *holds imaginary wheel* “And my passengers!” *points at his three friends*

    Me: “Sorry, but unless you can crash your car and dent my wall. I can’t serve you here.”

    Teen: “Okay!” *makes screeching noises* “CRASH!”
