    Shove It Up Your Asana

    | Reykjavik, Iceland | Uncategorized

    Customer: “I’d like to have this book.” *holding a yoga book about relaxation with discount sticker on it*

    Me: “I’m sorry sir. There seems to have been a mistake here. The book is to be sold at full price. The sticker was put on it by mistake.”

    Customer: *A bit frustrated* “Can I get a discount anyway?”

    Me: “I’ll see what I can do.” *trying to change the price in the

    Dude, That Must Be Some Strong Weed

    | Chicago, USA | Uncategorized

    (Early 1970’s. I make a key for a guy who lost car keys in the mall parking lot.)

    Me: “Well, that will be $10.00 for the key and labor but another key will be only 79 cents.”

    Customer: “Ah, no man, I need my money to get my weed.”

    (A week later, same deal. I have to go out in the rain and make the same guy another key.)

    Me: “Well I’m sure that now you will get an extra key?”

    Customer: “Ah, no man, I need my money to get my weed.”

    (Well I can spot a trend, so I make another key anyway and hang it up in the shop.)

    (Over the next 6 months he is back a dozen times and I just copy the key hanging in the shop and charge him for the lockwork and the key. He never buys a second key.)

    (I guess the weed finally got him.)

    A Good Time To Excuse Yourself

    | Tucson, AZ, USA | Top

    (This conversation between a Returns Employee and a customer was overheard by me and others.)

    Employee: “Hello, how may I help you?”

    Customer: “Yes, I would like to return this.” (Heaves a large propane tank, the kind used for barbecue grills onto the counter.)

    Employee: “Why?”

    Customer: “It’s leaking.”

    (At this point me, 4 managers, the employee, 2 other customers, and 3 other employees all within earshot, slowly turn their heads towards the leaking tank careful not to make any sudden movements.)
