Death Goes Shopping

| Sydney, NSW, Australia | At The Checkout, Crazy Requests, Language & Words, Top

(I am working behind the register on my first ever day of employment. It is also a particularly busy day. I am finalizing the purchase and handing the customer her bag…)

Me: “Thank you for shopping at [Store]; have a nice day!”

(The customer snaps her head up, gasping, while simultaneously dropping her bag of goods to the floor.)

Customer:What did you say?”

Me: “I thanked you for shopping here, and told you to have a good d—”

Customer: “I know what you said! You told me to have a good DEATH!”

Me: “Ma’am, I can assure you that I did not say anything of the kind.”

Customer: “You DID! You DID and it’s YOU that should be dying, YOU B****! I can assure you that I’ll be taking this further!”

(There is an unimpressed looking customer next in line.)

Next Customer: “Lady, pick up your s*** and get out of here, or I’ll kill you myself.”
