  • On The Need For Hazard Pay, Part 2

    | Kent, United Kingdom |

    (A 60-year old customer with a hefty beer gut comes into our clothing store. Note that I am an 18 year old girl.)

    Customer: “Excuse me, miss, I’m looking for speedos?”

    Me: “Oh right. Well, if you go to the front of the store and turn to your left, there are a few of them on a stand there.”

    (The customer continues to stand there staring at me.)

    Me: “Is there anything else I can help you with, sir?”

    Customer: “Would you like to see me try the speedos on?”

    Me: *horrified look*

    Customer: “Just checking.”

    Me: “Hello, this is [pool name]. How can I help you?”

    Customer: “What are your sessions today?”

    Me: “Our sessions today are 12:30 to 4:30 and 7:15 to dark.”

    Customer: “What?”

    Me: *more slowly and clearly, but still polite* “Our sessions today are 12:30 to 4:30 and 7:15 to dark–around 9 pm.”

    Customer: “What’s dark?”

    Me: “Around 9 pm.”

    Customer: “No, what is dark?”

    Me: “When the…sun goes down?”

    Customer: “Oh, how rude!” *click*

    Customer: “Could you show me how to use my phone?”

    Me: “Um…sure. What can I help you with?”

    Customer: “Well, I’ve been told these new phones come with voice control features. Is that true?”

    Me: “Yes sir, just hold the home button to activate the voice control feature.”

    Customer: “That’s it? That’s so easy!” *customer picks up the phone* “Call…my wife.”

    (Nothing happens.)

    Customer: “Why isn’t it calling my wife?”

    Me: “Do you have her listed in your phone book as your wife?”

    Customer: “No.”

    Me: “Yeah. I’m pretty sure the phone isn’t going to know who you’re married to.”

    Every (Bad) Crowd Has A Silver Lining

    (When I was in college, I used to work in the cafeteria. On this day, two girls are making fun of a third.)

    Mean Girl #1: “Oooooh, a hamburger? So much for that diet.”

    Mean Girl #2: “Are you kidding? She’s never been on a diet in her life!”

    (The third girl who they are talking to is, for the record, very nice looking.)

    Girl #3: *taken aback* “I…I worked out today. I need the protein.”

    Me: “Come on, leave her alone. She can eat whatever she wants!”

    Mean Girl #1: “Yeah, I guess you don’t have to worry about what you eat if you’re already fat and ugly!”

    (One of my coworkers has been listening from a distance. He walks over, looks all three girls up and down, and then turns to the third.)

    Coworker: “Excuse me, miss, but do you think I could get your phone number?”

    Girl #3: “Are you serious?”

    Coworker: “Completely! Who wouldn’t want a date with a beautiful girl who knows how to take care of herself?”

    (This was five years ago. I’m going to be the best man at their wedding.)

    (I hear glass shattering from the back of the store, near the wine department. As I head to the source of the sound, I hear a second shatter and see a small child in a cart reaching for a third wine bottle to pull off the rack. There’s no sign of a parent around.)

    Me: “Stop that!”

    (I grab the cart and pull it away from the wine racks. Suddenly, the absent parent shows up.)

    Customer: “How dare you touch that cart! My child is in that cart! How dare you touch my child without my permission!”

    Me: “Ma’am, your child has broken 2 bottles of wine and was about to break a third bottle. I just saved you another $12.99.”

    Customer: “Saved me? You’re the one trying to kidnap my child!”

    Me: “Ma’am, you already owe me $26 for what happened when you were not watching your own child.”

    Customer: “If you’re going to charge me money for bringing my child into the store, I should just let you take him!”
