    Because 8 Bajillion Signs Are Always The Answer, Part 2

    , | Nebraska, USA |

    Me: “Your total will be [total price].”

    Customer: “That seems a little high. Were the Imaginext items buy one, get one free?”

    (I check the items and see if they’re scanning correctly in the register.)

    Me: “Yes, they are, but you have 3 Imaginext items and one non-Imaginext item, so that won’t ring up on sale.”

    Customer: “Well, they’re all in the same aisle!”

    Me: “Well, yes, but just because one item is on sale doesn’t mean everything in the aisle is on sale as well.”

    Customer: “Well, you should put that on your signs!”

    Mental Impurities

    | Midlands, UK |

    (I am talking to a customer about various options for earrings.)

    Customer: “Can I see your 25 carat gold earrings?”

    (I go and fetch the earrings from the back.)

    Customer: “These are definitely made of gold? There’s no nickel in them?”

    Me: “No, there’s no nickel. Are you allergic?”

    Customer: “No, I just don’t want to get HIV.”

    Half Dumb And Half Stupid

    | Nebraska, USA | Food & Drink

    Customer: “It’s my birthday tomorrow and I want to have some chicken delivered. I want 50 pieces of chicken, half baked chicken and half fried chicken.”

    Me: “Okay, so, you want 25 pieces of baked chicken and 25 pieces of fried chicken?”

    Customer: “No, I want half baked and half fried.”

    Me: “Well, half of 50 is 25. So, you want 25 baked and 25 fried?”

    Customer: “No! I want 12 pieces of baked chicken and the rest fried chicken!”

    2 Good 2 Be True

    , | Miami, FL, USA |

    (I am working in the young men’s department of a large department store. My department contains athletic clothing, including swimwear. A customer is looking at a large rack of bathing suits that are on clearance.)

    Me: “Hello, how are you, sir?”

    Customer: “Fine, thank you. I can’t believe all these bathing suits are so cheap!”

    Me: “It’s officially the fall season, so all of our bathing suits are reduced for clearance.”

    (The customer mumbles something about $2.00 and hands me the suit he’s holding, which is made by one of the most expensive brands we carry.)

    Me: “I’ll be happy to check the price for you.”

    (I walk to the register, which is nearby, and check the price. It rings up for $39.00.)

    Me: “Sir, this suit is on sale for $39.00.”

    Customer: “The price tag says it’s $2.00.”

    Me: “It was originally $78.00, but now it’s $39.00.”

    (I point to the price tag, which very clearly in large numbers says the original price and the reduced price.)

    Customer: “No, it says ‘Now 2.’ Two dollars, see?”

    (He points to the tag, which has a very tiny number 2, much smaller than where it says $39.00, under the word “Now”.)

    Me: “I see. That just means it’s the second reduction. The price is $39.00.”

    Customer: “Well, that’s confusing! You shouldn’t put that it’s $2.00. They all say they’re $2.00. I don’t want to pay more than $2.00!” *leaves in a huff*

    First Name First, Last Name Last

    Teacher: “I can’t log in. I am using the username our IT guys set up for us.”

    Me: “What username are you using?”

    Teacher: “First_Lastname.”

    Me: “So what is your first and last name?”

    Teacher: “Oh…am I supposed to enter my real first and last name separated by an underscore?”

    Me: “As opposed to what?”

    Teacher: “As opposed to typing ‘First_Lastname’?”
