November Theme Of The Month: Black Friday!

Pick It Before The Ticket

| Canada | Top

(A girl comes up to my till. She’s fake tanned with bleached hair and nails so long she can barely text while she talks to me.)

Customer: “I need one ticket.”

Me: “Sure, what movie?”

Customer: “Just one ticket, please.”

Me: “Yes, but I need to know which movie the ticket is for.”

Customer: “What? Why can’t you just give me a ticket?”

Me: “Because I have to select what movie to give you a ticket for before I can print it out.”

Customer: “It’s a funny one with that guy. Just get me a ticket to it.”

Me: “We have several comedies right now. You’ll have to be more specific.”

Customer: “Do you know how to do your job? Give me a ticket and I’ll tell you what movie I’m seeing after!”

Me: “That’s not how it works. I’m sorry.”

Customer: “Fine! Let me go see what movie my friends want to see.”

(She goes over to a group of girls who are all dressed exactly like her and texting on their phones. She comes back a couple minutes later.)

Customer: “The movie we’re seeing is [movie title].”

Me: “We’re not showing that movie here.”

Customer: “Why didn’t you tell me that before?”

The Food Is Questionable

| MD, USA | Uncategorized

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

Customer: “Yeah. I got a couple of questions for you.”

Me: “Okay, what are they?”

Customer: “Is your pizza, like, really fresh?”

Me: “Well, sir, it’s fresh right out of the oven.”

Customer: “Okay. Is it better than [competitor’s] pizza place?

Me: “Well, I don’t know, sir. I never order from them.”

Customer: “Oh, okay. I think they undercook their food.”

Me: “Well, I wouldn’t really know, sir. I don’t like their food at all.

Customer: “Oh, okay.”

(There is a long silence.)

Customer: “So, how was your day?”

Me: “Fine.”

Customer: “Okay. You working hard?”

Me: “Yes.”

(There is another long pause.)

Me: “Sir, is there anything I can help you with? Maybe some food?”

Customer: “Oh, no. I just called to ask those questions.”

No Fortitude For Longitude, Part 5

Customer: “Well, how many are there, then?”

Me: “There are 11 time zones.”

Wait In Line, Parish The Thought

| Tampa, FL, USA | Top

(A customer comes up to the front of a long checkout line.)

Me: “Ma’am, you have to go to the back of the line or go to another line to purchase. There is already a line here.”

Customer: “I have to checkout now! I have to go to church in 5 minutes!”

Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am, but you have to wait. You could also come back and get your toy after your service.”

Customer: “I have to checkout now! I bet you’re just some heathen who wants me to miss church!”

(A customer who is also a priest comes up to the front.)

Priest: “Ma’am, going to church will not make you a better Christian. Shouting something as hateful as ‘heathen’ to this sweet lady certainly won’t help either.”

Customer: “She won’t check me out so I can go to church! She obviously is not Christian.”

Priest: “Ma’am, just please go to the back of the line, or leave. Nobody wants to hear your hateful comments to such a sweet woman. She might not be Christian, but she sure gives a lot more respect to people than you do.”

Customer: *huffs* “Fine! But when God sends his fire upon both of you, you’ll be sorry!”
