    They Start So Young

    | San Jose, CA, USA |

    (A girl of about 8 years old is staring longingly at the display of stickers we have by the cash register.)

    Girl: “I’d love to have some of these stickers, but I don’t have any money.” *sighs loudly*

    Me: “I’m sorry to hear that.”

    Girl: “…so are you going to give me some for free, or what?”

    Me: “…”

    Reorientation Disorientation

    Customer: “Do you have any frames that fit a 7×5 photo?”

    Coworker: “Yes.”

    Customer: “I like THIS one, but you only have it in 5×7.”

    Coworker: “Yes?”

    Customer: *whines*

    Coworker: “Um…”

    Customer: “But I need one that’s 7×5, not 5×7!”

    Coworker: *slowly turns the frame on it’s side*

    Customer: “Oh, wow!”

    That’s One Way To Pick Up Chicks

    | Angeles City, Philippines |

    Me: “Hello sir, can I help you?”

    Me: “…”

    Random Acts Of Drunkenness

    | South Carolina, USA |

    (A customer stumbles up to the counter, obviously drunk, with a four year-old girl in tow.)

    Me: “Hi, how can I help you today?”

    Customer: “Yeah, uh, my camera’s broken.”

    Me: “Sir, it looks like the camera’s been dropped.”

    Customer: “Oh yeah, I dropped it.”

    Me: “Do you have your receipt from the purchase with you, by chance?”

    Customer: “Sure…” *hands receipt to me*

    Me: “Okay sir, I see here that you bought an accidental coverage warranty when you bought the camera, so the good news is that it will cover having it repaired at one of our service centers. ¬†We’ll just have to send it off, and it should arrive back at the store in about two weeks.”

    Customer: “No! You’re supposed to give me a new camera.”

    Me: “I’m sorry, sir, but I can’t exchange your camera because it’s about six months outside of our return policy, and our warranties don’t cover product replacement without attempting repairs first.”

    Customer: “I WANT A NEW CAMERA! ¬†*** TOLD ME I COULD JUST COME IN AND GET A NEW CAMERA!”

    Me: “I apologize, but there’s not much else I can do ¬†If you’d like, I can get you my supervisor and see what he says.”

    Customer: “YEAH, YOU BETTER GO GET HIM!”

    (I bring my supervisor over, and the supervisor confirms that we can
    only repair the camera.)

    Customer: “F*** YOU!¬†I NEED A CAMERA NOW!¬†MY DAUGHTER’S BIRTHDAY IS TOMORROW, G**D***IT!”

    Supervisor: “Well, we can either have the camera repaired, or you can bring home a broken camera today, if you’d like.”

    Customer: “FINE! BUT I’M NOT HAPPY AND I’M NEVER SHOPPING AT *** AGAIN!”

    (Two weeks pass, and the same customer comes back in to pick up his repaired camera, again obviously drunk.)

    Me: “Here’s your camera, sir. The warranty fully covered the repair, so you’re all good to go. By the way, how did things go with your daughter’s birthday?”

    Customer: “Oh, it was GREAT! Thank you so much for fixing my camera. You guys are real lifesavers!¬†I’m gonna buy stuff here every chance I get!”

    Server: “That will come with potatoes,cottage cheese or fruit.”

    Customer: “What kind of fruit do you have?”

    Server: “We have grapes, oranges, bananas, pears or pineapple.”

    Customer: “Is your pineapple local?”

    Server: “Yes, sir. It is from the pineapple farm in Dallas.”

    Customer: *makes a sour face* “I’ll have the oranges…”
