    You’re Only As Old As You Act

    | Phoenix, AZ, USA | Top

    (An elderly woman well into her 70s comes through the check-out line with a single bottle of wine. I start to scan the bottle through.)

    Customer: “Wait! Aren’t you going to check my ID?”

    Me: “Er, no, ma’am, I don’t think it’s really necessary…”

    Customer: “Well, that’s no good! You should check all ID if you’re selling alcohol.”

    Me: “Well, okay. May I see your ID, please?”

    (She hands over an ID card that is obviously fake.)

    Me: “…ma’am, this card says you’re seventeen.”

    Customer: “Oh, dear! You’ve caught me! I’m much too young to be buying this! It’s a good thing you were checking IDs. I’d better just go now! *skips out the door*

    Me: “…”

    That Hot Tub Had Better Be Filled With Spermicide

    | Albany, NY, USA | Top

    (A woman comes in walking with her daughter trailing behind her and cuts in front on several people.)

    Customer: “Excuse me, but someone here yesterday told my 15 year old daughter she was pregnant and I would like to complain.”

    Me: “Ma’am, I can straighten this out. If you wouldn’t mind waiting in line, these people were–”

    Customer: “This won’t take long. I just need you to apologize for lying!”

    Me: “Ma’am, I didn’t diagnose your daughter so if–”

    Customer: “She can’t be pregnant, she’s 15 AND a virgin. She’s waiting until marriage so unless this is the immaculate conception, I’m going to need an apology.”

    Me: “Ma’am, like I said, I did not personally–”

    Customer: “How hard is it to get an apology here!?! YOU CANNOT JUST GO AROUND TELLING YOUNG GIRLS THEY ARE PREGNANT! THIS IS WHY THE TEEN PREGNANCY RATES ARE SO HIGH, YOU KNOW!

    Me: “Ma’am, it doesn’t quite work like that. Now, if you could just–”

    Customer: “All I want is an apology. My daughter has been traumatized!”

    Me: “Fine, I’ll call the doctor and I’ll see if he can speak to you for a moment.”

    Customer: “Tell him to get his butt down here right away, too. My daughter had to leave her boyfriend in the hot tub!”

    Victoria’s Secret Is Out

    | Texas, USA | Top

    Me: “Hello, how may I help you?”

    Customer: “Yes, I’d like to return this.” *pulls out a bra from a bag*

    Me: “Ok, is there something wrong with it?”

    Customer: Well yeah, duh. I wouldn’t be returning it if it was fine, would I?!”

    Me: “Ok – what is the reason you are returning it?”

    Customer: “It squeaks…”

    Me: “The bra…? The bra squeaks?”

    Customer: “Yes, it makes noises.”

    Me: “The bra makes noises?”

    (By this time everyone standing in line starts laughing at her and making comments.)

    Customer: “Shut up! Don’t you dare laugh at me – inferior creatures!”

    (People in line now really start to laugh.)

    Me: “Ok ma’am, I’m really sorry the bra makes noises, but I cannot return this, you’ve worn it. You can’t return an–”

    Customer: *interrupting* “LORD! Give me patience! Or I will strangle this creature of yours! Now, Mr. A**hole, you are going to give me my money back for this thing. I cannot be walking around with a talking bra on me – people will think I’m nuts!”

    Hulk Smash Bagels

    , | California, USA | Top

    (I am cashier at a small cafe in California. Two tourists, a man and his teenage son, walk into the cafe. His son decides what he wants and his father starts yelling at him.)

    Me: “Sir, what’s wrong? Something I can help you with?”

    Customer: “Can you get me a sandwich and a soda? Oh, and get this guy some soup.”

    Customer’s son: “Dad, I don’t want some soup! I just want a bagel!”

    Customer: “SON, YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENS TO ME WHEN YOU EAT BAGELS! YOU KNOW IT BRINGS BAD MEMORIES!” *storms out*

    Customer’s son: “Dad!” *runs after him*

    (From that day onward, I always suggested the soup.)

    Coworkers: They Make Life Worth Living, Part 2

    , | Denver, CO, USA | Top

    (Everyone I work with knows I’m gay. A customer has just paid for her order.)

    Customer: “Stop staring at my boobs!”

    Me: “Huh?”

    Customer: “You heard me!”

    Me: “Lady, I was just counting the money you gave me.”

    Customer: “No, you were staring at my boobs and pretending to count the money. Let me talk to your manager right now! I’m going to get you fired!”

    (Before I can say anything, one of my male coworkers comes up behind me and wraps his arms around my chest.)

    Coworker: “I’m the manager. Are you bothering my boyfriend?”

    Customer: *takes her food and leaves*

    Coworker’s girlfriend, to me: “Hey, wanna come over tonight?”
