November Theme Of The Month: Black Friday!

The Bear-est Signs Of Intelligence

| Dallas, TX, USA | Top

(The customer is buying one piece of jewelry. I’m all about the environment so I try to avoid giving out bags for small purchases.)

Me: “Would you like a bag, or do you want to put it in your purse?”

Customer: “My purse is fine.”

Me: “Yay! You just saved a polar bear!”

Customer: *eyes go wide* “Plastic bags… are made out of… polar bears?!”

Who Needs Highs When You’ve Got Dyes

| New York, NY, USA | Top

(Note: I have light blue hair with dark blue tips.)

Customer: *staring at me*

Me: “Can I help you?”

Customer: “Am I still high, or is your hair really like that?”

Your Two-fer Just Went Poofer

| USA | Uncategorized

Customer: “I’d like a grande white mocha and a tall peppermint hot chocolate.”

Me: “Alright, that’ll be $*.**.”

Customer: “What? For one drink? That’s impossible!”

Me: “Oh, I’m sorry, miss. I thought I heard you order two drinks. What did you order?”

Customer: “A tall peppermint hot chocolate.”

Me, to coworker: “Forget the white mocha.”

Customer: “No! I still want it!”

Me: “Oh, so you just wanted me to ring the two drinks separately?”

Customer: “No! I want it, but I don’t want you to ring it up.”

Me: *blank stare*

Customer: “Oh. I guess I’m not getting away with it, am I?”

Me: “Nope.”

Safe To Say It’s Nacho Brightest Moment

| Pennsylvania. USA | Top

Me: “Good evening, guest services. This is ***, how my I assist you?”

Guest: “This is absolutely ridiculous! You need to get someone up here right now! This God d*** microwave in my room isn’t working! You had better fix this immediately!”

(Note: our hotel does not have microwaves in guest rooms unless the person is a VIP or if they request one in advance.)

Me: “I am so sorry, Mr. ***. I can certainly have someone come take a look at it right away. If I may ask, did housekeeping bring this microwave to your room?”

Guest: “No! It’s the microwave that is in the room! My nachos have been in this d*** thing for over 20 minutes and they’re not even hot yet!”

Me: “I see, sir. Can you tell me where it’s located in your room?”

Guest: “It’s the one that’s right under the television! I want my nachos and you better figure this out now!”

Me: “Sir, is this microwave an off-white color with a keypad on the right of it?”

Guest: “Yes!”

Me: “There’s not a little window like a normal microwave would have, is there? It’s just a little digital display screen, right?”

Guest: “That’s exactly it. It only displays how long I set the time for! I want my nachos 20 minutes ago. Can you get someone up here immediately?! This is absurd!”

Me: “Again, sir, I apologize that your nachos are not hot. However, I believe I’ve figured out what the problem is. The device you’re placing your nachos in is actually your safe.”

Guest: “Oh…oh my God. I’m so f***ing stupid!”

(He actually called back down later and apologized.)

Church At The Checkout

| Christchurch, NZ | Uncategorized

(A customer and her young daughter come up to my register.)

Me: “Hi there! How are you going?”

Mother: “I’m good, thanks!”

(Her daughter spots the sponge we use to make the bags easier to open.)

Daughter: “It’s the sponge! The sponge of baptism!”

Me: *speechless*

Daughter: “The sponge of baptism!” *places finger on sponge and wipes on forehead*

Mother: “We’re not even religious…”
