    Trying To Get Herself A-Wrist-Ed

    | Virginia Beach, VA, USA | At The Checkout, Bizarre, Themed Giveaway, Wild & Unruly

    (I am ordering coffee at a coffee shop located on my community college campus.)

    Barista: “Hey, [My Name]. I love that bracelet you’re wearing!”

    (The barista points to the silicone rainbow wristband on my right wrist.)

    Me: “Thanks!”

    Customer Behind Me: “Where did you get it?”

    Me: “It was from a group that gave them out a couple years back. But they’re not doing them any more, due to financial problems.”

    Customer Behind Me: “Oh, so I couldn’t get one?”

    Me: “No, sorry.”

    (The customer keeps eyeing the wristband as we wait for our drinks. It’s slightly strange but I don’t say anything.)

    Barista: “[My Name], latte’s up!”

    Me: “Thanks, [Barista's Name]. You have a good—”

    (As I reach for my drink, the customer behind me steps forward and starts actually pulling on my arm to get the wristband off. I’m right handed and my HOT drink ends up spilling all over the floor and her.)

    Customer Behind Me: “I HATE ALL OF YOU! F*** THIS!”

    (The customer runs away, while the barista and I just kind of blink for a while.)

    Barista: “I have no words right now. I’ll make you another drink.”

    Tastefully Talking Turkey

    | Minneapolis, MN, USA | Bizarre, Holidays, Themed Giveaway

    (I am in line waiting to be checked out for some items. The customer ahead of me has paid for his merchandise. As he takes his change he strikes up a conversation between himself and the young female clerk.)

    Customer: “I was wondering, are you going to be open on Thanksgiving? I know some stores are starting to do that.”

    Clerk: *sighs* “Yes, sir. We’re open until 8 pm.”

    Customer: “Well, that’s certainly some bull-s*** right there!”

    Clerk: *laughing* “I’m not allowed to comment, sir.”

    Customer: “Well, I am. Please tell your boss you got some resoundingly negative feedback from a customer over that. And, while you’re at it, tell him the same customer gave you a resoundingly POSITIVE feedback on your service. You’re a very nice young lady. I hope you prosper in life.”

    (The customer then walks out, leaving the clerk and I to look at each other in mutual confusion.)

    Clerk: “Well, that apparently just happened.”

    Not Getting The Message, Part 2

    | Sioux Falls, SD, USA | Bizarre, Money, Themed Giveaway

    Me: “Thank you for calling [Bank]. How can I help you today?”

    Customer: “My bank called and left a message for me to call them back. Should I call them back?”

    Me: “Well, that is completely up to you.”

    Customer: “Why are they calling?”

    Me: “I’m afraid that I work in a call center and not at your branch bank. I do not know why they’re calling you.”

    Customer: “Hmm.”

    (There is a prolonged moment of silence.)

    Customer: “In your opinion, what do you think they might have wanted?”

    Me: “I’m afraid I don’t know that. If you’re curious, I would suggest calling them back.”

    Customer: “Is that your opinion on what I should do?”

    Me: “Only if you’re curious.”

    Customer: “Well, I am.”

    Me: “Then, it seems like it is settled.”

    Customer: “So you think I should call them back.”

    (This back-and-forth goes on for 12 minutes.)

    Me: “Again, I don’t know why they are calling. If you want to know, you can call them. If you do not want to know, you should not call them.”

    Customer: “Okay. I’ll think about it. Thank you. Bye.”

    Me: “Have a good day, sir.”
