    Petrol Perception

    | Los Angeles, CA, USA |

    Customer: “Your pumps are a lot slower than they used to be. It never used to take this long to pump $20 of gas.”

    Me: “The pump speed hasn’t decreased; it just takes longer to get to $20 now that the price of gas is half what it used to be.”

    Customer: “Well, I wish it would go up again so I could fill up faster!”

    We Have Confirmation

    , | Newington, CT, USA |

    (Our credit card machine went down, and we started to make signs for the doors alerting the customers to this. Before the signs were up, I had to ring up a customer’s order.)

    Me: “The total is ****. I’m sorry; our credit card machine is down.”

    Customer: “Well, I don’t see any signs!”

    Me: “The machine just broke five minutes ago while you were still in line. I was just telling my coworker to make signs a moment ago….”

    Customer: “I don’t have enough cash. How about debit?”

    Me: “Well, debit would use the same machine as the credit cards, but either way our store does not accept debit. Just cash today.”

    Customer: “How about a check?”

    Me: “Sorry, no personal checks. Just cash today.”

    Customer: *getting upset now* “Well, what do you expect me to do?”

    Me: “The last customer went next door to use the ATM to get cash.”

    Customer: “You’re being extremely rude, you know!”

    Me: “Ma’am, I’m just trying to explain to you that the credit card machine is down.”

    Customer: “Well, I don’t listen!”

    Me: “…”

    Seek, And Ye Shall Find…Eventually

    , | Glasgow, Scotland |

    Customer: “Hi. Can I have a cappuccino please?”

    Me: “Uh …sorry ma’am, but you’re in a furniture store. We don’t sell coffee.”

    Customer: “I didn’t ask for coffee, I asked for a d**n cappuccino!”

    Me: “Well, we don’t sell those either.”

    Customer: *looking hurt* “Why not?”

    Me: “We sell furniture. Look around you….”

    Customer: *starts crying* “This is the fourth time this has happened on this street!” *runs out*

    (As it turns out, she’d gone into a clothing store, a pharmacy and a grocery store, just to find herself a cappuccino.)

    Fond Future Memories

    | California, USA |

    Me: “Ok sir, your total today is $62.30.”

    Customer: *serious* “That was a good year. I remember it well….”

    Me: “6230?!”

    Customer: “Yeah.”

    Me: “…”
