    Eternal Persistence Is The Price Of Coffee Or Tea

    | New York, NY, USA |

    Customer: “Excuse me, can I get some coffee?”

    Me: “Sure, decaf or regular?”

    Customer: ¬†”Oh! Sugar too, please!”

    Me: “Not a problem. Decaf or regular?”

    Customer: “None of that sweet and low stuff. Real sugar!”

    Me: “Yes, sir. Decaf or regular?”

    Customer: “Oh, and milk, too!”

    Me: “Absolutely. Decaf or regular?”

    Customer: “But not skim, or whole, or 2%. You got any half and half?”

    Me: “Yes, sir.”

    Customer: “Good!”

    Me: “Right. Coffee with sugar and half and half. Do you want decaf or regular?”

    Customer: “Make sure there’s not too much milk. Gotta be a bit strong.”

    Me: “Right. Decaf or regular?”

    Customer: “Oh, and lots of sugar! I like it sweet… but not too much milk!”

    Me: “Decaf or regular?”

    Customer: “Oh, bring out some extra sugar, would you? Just in case.”

    Me: *gives up* “Okay, one decaf coffee, half and half, extra sugar?”

    Customer: “No, REGULAR! Geez, I swear… people just don’t pay attention anymore!”

    Go Directly To Jail, Do Not Pass Test

    | Michigan, USA |

    (Me and my mom are leaving from the place where I took the test to get my driver’s license when we see another car drive in. A man steps out of the car and talks to the lady in charge of giving the driver’s test. )

    Driver: “I’m here to take my driver’s test.”

    Employee: “Who drove you here?”

    Driver: “I drove myself.”

    Employee: “You drove yourself here to take the test to get your driver’s license?”

    Driver: “Yes.”

    Employee: “That could be a problem…”

    Guess The Magician & Clowns Are Out Too

    | Davie, FL, USA |

    (I work at a party store that sells balloons. A middle-aged woman comes up to me and the following takes place.)

    Me: “Hello. How can I help you today?”

    Customer: “…do y’all sell, like…balloons for funerals?”

    Me: “I’m sorry…what?”

    Customer: “You know, like balloons for a funeral…like, ‘Sorry For Your Loss’…”

    Me: “Um…no.”

    Customer: “OK, thanks!” *leaves*

    Your One-Stop Shop For Addictive Substances

    , | Manchester, CT, USA |

    (An older lady came in to the store I worked at looking for the Playstation game “Croc”.)

    Customer: “Hey! Y’all got crack?”

    Me: “Excuse me, ma’am?”

    Customer: “Crack!”

    Me: “Do you mean…Everquest?”

    Customer: “NO, D***IT, I WANT CRACK. You know, little alligator be runnin’ ’round ‘n s***.”

    Me: “…do you mean ‘Croc’?”

    Customer: “Crack, Croc, whatever!”

    Me: “Yes ma’am, right here…” *rings up sale*

    Manager: “Did that lady just try to buy crack rocks from you?!”

    We Need One Of These In Every Store, Part 4

    , | Stockholm, Sweden |

    (A guy who bought a game comes back wanting a refund. The problem is that the game seal had been broken, the game disc had some nasty scratches on it, and it was 30 days past our return policy window.)

    Me: “Hi. How may I help you?”

    Customer: “I’ve got this game here that I didn’t fully enjoy. I want a refund.”

    Me: “I’m sorry sir, but the seal has been broken, and the disc is damaged. I can’t give you a refund for this.”

    Customer: “You’ve got to be kidding me! I wasn’t informed about that!”

    Me: “Sir, if you look right here on your receipt, you’ll see what rights you have. And as you can see, the 30-day return policy has expired, and the game is damaged. I’m sorry, but there’s nothing I can do.”

    Customer: “Oh no, don’t try this on me. I know my rights, due to the fact that I’m a lawyer. So you’d better think about your next move, or it could end up bad for you.”

    Me: “Hold on a second…are you threatening me?”

    Customer: “That depends on how you handle this situation.”

    (By this point, there was a large line forming in the store, and the guy standing behind my customer looked pretty pissed off.)

    Customer: “So, are you going to give me a refund or not?”

    Customer #2: *interrupting* “I’ve had it with this. You told this guy you’re a lawyer, right? And that you’re entitled to a refund, am I correct?”

    Customer: “Not that it’s any of your business, but yes, that is correct.”

    Customer #2: “Here’s the deal: I know for a fact that you’re wrong. I think everyone in this store knows that you’re wrong, and the reason WHY I know this is because I AM a lawyer. What you’re doing is borderline illegal. So, may I suggest that you leave this store right now?”

    Customer: *quietly* “Well…what I was trying to tell him was…um…”

    (The customer then quickly left the store. Everyone, including myself, gave customer #2 a round of applause.)
