    Howard Hughes Goes Shopping

    | Plainville, MA, USA |

    (I had just finished a customer’s transaction, and was gathering up the change.)

    Me: “All right, your change is ****.”

    Customer: “Wait…I don’t like people touching my money…is there any way I can just take it out of the drawer myself?”

    Me: “…um, no.”

    Customer: “But what am I supposed to do? I don’t want you to contaminate it with germs!”

    Me: “…get a debit card?”

    (He leaves with his contaminated money, quite annoyed.)

    Extreme Primate Refereeing

    | San Diego, CA, USA | Top

    (I work at a snack cart across from the gorilla enclosure. A woman walks up to me and this conversation ensued.)

    Customer: “Look! Look! The gorillas are fighting!”

    Me: “No, they just rough-house like that about this time every day.”

    Customer: “No, that’s fighting, someone’s going to get hurt.”

    Me: “Ma’am, seriously, that’s how they play.”

    Customer: “That’s a fight! Stop them! Right now! It’s a bad example for the children.”

    Me: “Stop them…how?”

    Customer: “Get in there and make them cut it out right now!”

    Me: *staring at her while other customers in line laugh*

    Customer: *stomping off* “I’m telling your boss you won’t stop that violence!”

    Next customer in line: “So you’re in charge of gorillas AND churros, huh?”

    When Political Causes Collide

    , | Victoria, BC, Canada | Top

    Customer: “Excuse me, where is this table made? It’s not made in China, is it?”

    Me: “Yes, I do believe it’s made in China.”

    Customer: “I can’t believe you would sell things from China.”

    Me: “Well, we have a factory there that makes custom furnishings directly for us. I assure you they’re of the highest quality.”

    Customer: “Well, I can’t shop here! This is an outrage!

    Me: “I don’t see the problem…”

    Customer: “The problem is that they do animal testing in China!”

    Me: “Um, this is a table.”

    Customer: “They still do animal testing!”

    Me: “Well, I assure you no animals were harmed during the building of this table.”

    Customer: *storms out*

    Baked Goods For A Baked Customer

    | Florida, USA |

    Customer: “Excuse me, do you sell baked chicken here?”

    Me: “Sorry ma’am, this is a bakery. There is a deli a block down the road.”

    Customer: “Exactly, this is a bakery. You should have the baked chicken I need.”

    Me: “No, we sell baked goods here, like bread and cake. The deli is just a block away down [street].”

    Customer: “You sell BAKED goods at the BAKERY and I want BAKED chicken.”

    Me: *tries something different* “Umm… we’re sold out.”

    Customer: “Oh. Well, I guess I’ll go to the deli down the road then.”

    Me: “…”

    Ironically, She Was Seeing Get Smart

    | Dayton, OH, USA | Top

    (I’m finishing a transaction with a customer at the movie theater.)

    Me: “… and would you like to make a donation to [charity] today?”

    Customer: “Well let me ask you something: do YOU donate to charity?”

    Me: “Yes, of course. I donate to this one as well as several others.”

    Customer: “Well, do YOU work for any charitable organizations?”

    Coworker: “Actually she works with the mentally handicapped and developmentally disabled 40 hours per week.”

    Customer: “Oh really? Where?”

    Coworker: “Here.”

    Customer: “I really don’t appreciate that!”
