    At Least She Tried: Racism, Sexism AND Jesus

    | Upstate New York, USA | Top

    Female customer, from 15 feet away: “Hey, you!”

    Me: “Yes?”

    (Customer comes over with her friends and a dirty soccer-ball shaped pillow.)

    Female customer: “This is the last one and it’s dirty. I want 20% off!”

    Me: “I’d like to give you a discount, but you’ll have to talk to one of my superiors. I don’t have the authority to do that.”

    Female customer: *points towards the sky* “My only superior is up there, and He’s the only one who I take orders from. ”

    Me: “Let me see if I can get a manager.”

    (I call for a manager, and of course, no one shows up. After 10 minutes…)

    Female customer: “Why can’t you give me a discount?”

    Me: “Because I don’t have the authority.”

    Female customer: “Well, I think you can’t give me a discount because you don’t believe in Jesus!”

    Me: “You can take that item to the service desk, and I’m sure they’d be able to help you out.”

    Female customer: “Yeah and we’ll stick out like a bunch of sore thumbs since we’re the only black people in the store!”

    Me: “Actually, our store manager is African American, as well as two of our assistant managers, who are both women.”

    Female customer: “Oh.” *she finally walks away*

    The Joys Of Self Righteousness

    | Unknown Location, USA | Top

    Woman: “Hello, I’d like to report a ticket.”

    Me: “I beg your pardon?”

    Woman: “I want to report a speeding ticket.”

    Me: “I don’t really have the ability to write tickets over the phone.”

    Woman: “He’s speeding down the road; he must be doing 90mph!”

    Me: “Generally at this time of day we have patrols on every major street.”

    Woman: “I caught up to him and he is doing about 102. His license number is ******.

    (I pretend to write it down so I can end this phone call.)

    Me: “Thank you ma’am, I’ll get right on mailing this-”

    Woman: “Did it come up?”

    Me: “Yes it did.”

    Woman: “What did it say?”

    Me: “It says the car is stolen.” (It didn’t.)

    Woman: “Oh my god!”

    Me: “And what is your Driver’s License Number?”

    Woman: “Why do you need that?”

    Me: “You are aware it is illegal to drive and talk on your cellphone, right?”

    Woman: *click*

    Behind Every Husband Is A Brutally Honest Wife

    | Louisville, KY, USA | Top

    (I go to a table of four, a mom and dad and two kids who are ready to order.)

    Husband: “How big are your pizzas?”

    Me: “They are 10 inch pizzas, sir.”

    Husband: “Well how big is 10 inches?

    (And before I can answer, the wife chimes in.)

    Wife: “You wouldn’t know anything about 10 inches, dear.”

    (I stood there for a moment with my mouth open, before I ran to the wait station and started laughing hysterically.)

    Might I Also Suggest A Dictionary

    | Cincinnati, OH, USA | Top

    Customer: “Hi. I need a threesis.”

    Clerk: “A…pardon?

    Customer: “You know–a threesis. It has other words that mean the same as the word you look up.”

    Clerk: “Oh…do you mean a thesaurus?”

    Customer: “Duh! That’s a dinosaur! I need a threesis!”

    That’s, Like, Mean

    | Oregon, USA | Top

    Student: “So, like, um, you wrote on my paper that I wrote like, I, like spoke…but you only gave me 2 out of 10 points.

    Me: “You used ‘like’ 56 times and ‘that’ 87.”

    Student: “Um, why is that a problem??”

    Me: “It was a 2 page writing assignment.”

    Student: “So…um…since I talked with you, um…can I have some more points?”
