Water You, Stupid, Part 4

| Philadelphia, PA, USA | Food & Drink

Customer: “What’s in your liquid drinks?”

Me: “Uh, ma’am, all of our drinks are made of liquid. That’s what makes them drinkable.”

Customer: “Oh, you know what I mean!”

Me: “No, ma’am, I do not.”

Customer: “Fine, I’ll find someone that does!” *leaves*

An Immoral Pleasure Seeker

| UK | Family & Kids

(I work in a toy shop where we sell giant Bratz dolls. A customer comes over with one and asked whether or not it would be suitable for her two year old daughter.)

Me: “Sorry, ma’am, I wouldn’t recommend this doll for any child under the age of 6.”

Customer: “Why is this doll recommended for 6 years and over? My daughter’s two but she really wants one.”

Me: “Well, I can’t really recommend that you buy the doll for a younger child, but I suppose if you remove the earrings then there wouldn’t be any small parts.”

Customer: *looks the doll over* “Is it just because she’s dressed like a hooker?”

Wait ‘Til You Hear ‘Bout Our Latest Pro-mo

(Two obviously gay men are ordering concessions. I successfully upsell their purchase to a large popcorn.)

Customer: *jokingly* “Wow you’re quite a salesman!”

Coworker: “Yeah, he can sell stink to a hobo!”

Customer: *laughs*

Customer’s partner: *completely mortified*

Customer, to his partner: “No, no, he said HOBO!”

(Not The) Scent Of A Woman

| Newton, NJ, USA | Uncategorized

(A female customer is looking at the perfume display.)

Customer: “Excuse me, it says that this smaller bottle of [brand] perfume is the same price as this larger bottle of [brand] perfume. But they are the same product.”

Me: “Actually, this larger one is men’s cologne and this smaller one is women’s perfume.”

Customer: “No, no, they’re both for women. You’re looking at the wrong one.”

Me: “No, ma’am, if you look right here, this larger one says ‘por homme’ on it. That means ‘for men’.”

Customer: “No, they’re both for women. See how this one is light blue? That means for girls.”

Me: *giving up* “My mistake, ma’am.”

(On the bright side, the next time she came in, she smelled like a man.)

Whiney Wine

| Wiltshire, UK | Uncategorized

(I work in a supermarket with a reputation for having an upper middle class customer base. It is a very, very busy Saturday and I’m trying to run people through as quickly as possible. Note I’m underage and can’t sell alcohol without the permission of a supervisor.)

Me: “I’ll just page someone of age to ring the wine through. Is it okay for me to do everything else first?”

Customer: “Whatever, just get on with it.”

(I start ringing everything else through, watching out for my supervisors. All of them are busy dealing with other customers and situations.)

Customer: “Do the wine now.”

Me: “Madam, I can scan it, but I can’t allow you to pay for it until it’s been run through by my supervisor.”

Customer: “Why the h*** not? Just run it through!”

Me: “I’m 17, madam. It’s against the law for me to buy or sell alcohol and I don’t have the option to bypass the supervisor authorization even if I wanted to.”

Customer: “So you don’t want to?”

Me: “I’m sorry?”

Customer: “You don’t want to get someone to do it, do you?”

Me: “I’m sorry, but I don’t understand–”

(Before I know it, the woman has turned around and stormed up to another employee, who isn’t from the section and is also underage.)

Customer: “There you are! I’ve been waiting forever for someone to do this alcohol because that girl won’t do it! Now, get over here and do it!”

Coworker: “Madam, I’m not from this section. I’m just collecting trolleys. I can’t process your alcohol.”

(The customer storms around the checkouts hunting for someone else, as I sit mortified at my till. Eventually, she finds one of the supervisors. After a barrage of anger, her alcohol is processed.)
