    Have Age, Will Complain

    | Alberta, Canada |

    (Our local gas station has recently been taken over by new owners. An elderly woman comes in to buy a cup of coffee and takes it to the front to pay.)

    Me: “That’ll be a dollar fifty.”

    Customer: “What? That’s outrageous! The old owners would never have charged that much!”

    Me: “Ma’am, it’s the same price as it was before.”

    Customer: “Well… I’m seventy! I have the right to b****!” *storms out*

    Shopping, Time Travel…It’s Going To Be A Busy Day

    | Portland, OR, USA |

    (It’s 5:30am and I’m in the back office, getting register tills ready for the day, when the store phone rings.)

    Caller: “Hi, can you tell me what today is?”

    Me: “Uh, Saturday. Can I help you with something?”

    Caller: “Hmm. What’s the date?”

    Me: “March 19th.”

    Caller: “But what YEAR?”

    Me: “…2008. Sir, is there something I can help you with?”

    Caller: “What day is it again?”

    Me: *getting frustrated* “Sir, it’s Saturday, March 19th, 2008 and it’s 5:34am, in the morning. Now is there something here in the bookstore I can help you with?”

    Caller: “What? Oh, yeah. I just want to put a CD on hold.”

    How To Strike Out 101

    | Wisconsin, USA |

    (I’m female, and one day a male patron walked up to me.)

    Patron: “Can you look up information on gonorrhea for me?”

    Me: “Sure…”

    (I start searching in various databases when I suddenly feel the patron caressing my knee.)

    Patron: “You’re doing such a good job!”

    Me: “…”

    No Scam Like The Present

    | Richmond, VA, USA |

    Me: “Good morning, ma’am. How can I help you today?”

    Customer: “I would like $10 on pump five.”

    Me: “Alright, ma’am. Have a nice day!”

    (The customer then gets out and starts walking to her car which is indeed on pump five… and then just drives off without pumping gas. I hold her $10 in case she comes back, and sure enough, she returns about an hour later.)

    Customer: *furious* “I can’t pump my gas, you little s***! You stole my money!”

    Me: “Ma’am, you left the money on your pump about an hour ago.”

    Customer: “I know! You were supposed to hold it for me. What kind of service is this that you won’t do that?”

    Me: “Ma’am, I have your money right here and can put it on the pump if you want.”

    Customer: “You d***ed better put that money on my pump…all $50 of it!”

    Me: “Ma’am, you only gave me $10 for the pump.”

    Customer: “I so did not! I gave you $50. I have my receipt right here!”

    (The customer hands me a receipt that indeed says $50 dollars–but it’s dated from five months ago.)

    Me: “Ma’am, I have your receipt from today and it says $10. The receipt you handed me has a date from five months ago.”

    Customer: “You mean those receipts have dates on them?”

    Me: “Yes.”

    Customer: “Oh…” *runs out, leaving her $10 and never returning again*

    The Oracle At Register Five

    | Kansas, USA |

    (I’m helping out a backup cashier as he checks a customer out.)

    Me: “Corn is 4078.”

    Coworker: “Thanks!” *punches it in* “What are the melons?”

    Me: “4050.”

    Coworker: “Thanks!” *punches it in* “What’s watermelon?”

    Me: “4032.”

    Customer: “What’s the winning lottery numbers?”

    Me: “If I knew that, I wouldn’t be working here!”

    Customer: “It was worth a shot.”
