You’ll Get Used To It

Creepin’

How About We Ring Your Neck

| Miami, FL, USA | Technology

(A customer walks in with his girlfriend. He’s having an issue with his cellphone.)

Customer: “I can’t hear my phone ring! This is an outrage! I paid so much money for this thing! I should just return this piece of s*** right now!”

(Without saying a word, I take the phone and move the “silence” switch to “off”.)

Me: “Now try it.”

(The girlfriend calls customer’s phone, and sure enough, it rings loud and clear. The customer sheepishly walks out and his girlfriend follows.)

Customer’s Girlfriend: *to her boyfriend* “I told you, you f***ing idiot! We could’ve saved the trip over here!”

I Have A Good Feeling About This

| Florida, USA | Awesome Customers, Geeks Rule, Top, Wild & Unruly

(Our shop sells a lot of space-themed items, including a good deal of Star Wars merchandise. I am approached by two guys in their early 20s.)

Guy #1: “Excuse me, miss, but we’re about to get kicked out of your store.”

Me: “For what?”

Guy #2: “Lightsaber fighting!”

(They turn to a Star Wars display, each take a lightsaber off the rack, and spend a second figuring out how to turn them on. Right away, I duck behind the registers and return with two open lightsabers we have behind the counter from returns.)

Me: “Here, try some without the packaging.”

Guy #1: “SWEET!”

(They activate the lightsabers and proceed to have a high-energy duel in the middle of the shop, to the amusement of my coworkers and the other customers. When one wins, they deactivate and hand the lightsabers back to me.)

Guy #2: “Best. Store. Ever.”

(They left without buying anything, but with huge smiles on their faces!)

Do As I Say, Not As I Don’t Say

| Edmonton, AB, Canada | At The Checkout

(I’m cashing when an elderly customer comes to the till.)

Me: “Hi, how are you?”

Customer: *mumbles*

Me: “Do you have a rewards card today?”

Customer: *waves his hand indicating no*

Me: “Did you find everything you were looking for?”

Customer: “Look, just stop asking questions. That’s what they do at [competitor], not here!”

(I’m a bit shocked, but I put his groceries through the till in silence.)

Me: “That’ll be [price].”

Customer: *says nothing while he uses his debit card*

Me: “Have a good night.”

Customer: “It would be better if you weren’t so rude. You need to try and interact more with customers!”

Me: *speechless*
