    What’s A Synonym For Thesaurus

    | Atlanta, GA, USA |

    Me: “Hi, ma’am, can I help you find something?”

    Customer: “Yes, I need a synonym finder.”

    Me: “I’m sorry?”

    Customer: “A synonym finder… you know?”

    Me: “Oh, you mean a thesaurus?”

    Customer: “Yeah!”

    How Nicknames Are Born, Part 2

    | Berkshire County, MA, USA |

    Customer: “Hey, can you tell me where the rope is? I’ve been looking all over for it, but can’t seem to find it.”

    Me: “Oh, yeah it’s just over this way.”

    (I lead him to the hardware aisle, and halfway down there’s a big sign that says “Ropes” with a picture of a rope on it.)

    Me: “Right down there.¬†There’s actually a sign there that says ‘Ropes’.”

    Customer: “You’re f***ing douche bag, you know that?!”

    Me: *laughs, thinking he’s joking*

    Customer: “That was intentional, and I WILL talk to your manager!”

    Me: “I apologize–”

    Customer: “Anytime you wanna come to my house, you just lemme know, Dingleballs!”

    (And from that day forward, my nickname at work was “Dingleballs”.)

    Caller:Big Momma’s House.”

    Me: “Um, what does it say on the case?”

    Caller:Big Momma’s House.”

    Me: “What does it say on the video cassette itself?”

    Caller:Big Momma’s House.”

    Me: “I’m thinking you have Big Momma’s House there, Ma’am.”

    Caller: “But…”

    Me: “Yes?”

    Caller: “But… there’s white people in it.”

    Me: “There are a few of us about, ma’am. We do sneak into the odd movie here and there.”

    Caller: *click*

    Insert Butt Crack Here

    | Philadelphia, PA, USA |

    Customer: “Hi, I’m having a problem with my suppositories. They’re not working at all!”

    Me: “Okay, let me get the pharmacist for you so he can help you.”

    (The customer decides to just yell the same question over two counters to the pharmacist in front of at least 10 other people.)

    Pharmacist: “Ma’am, would you like to come over to our consultation are so we can talk about this privately?”

    Customer: “No, I just want to know why my suppositories aren’t working!”

    Pharmacist: “Well, okay. Are they melting before you insert them?”

    Customer: “No, nothing like that!”

    Pharmacist: “Are they breaking up into pieces before you use them?”

    Customer: “No, no, nothing like that! They’re all in one piece and the same shape and all that stuff! I know how to follow the d*** directions!”

    Pharmacist: “Are parts of the foil wrapper sticking to it at all?”

    Customer: “What wrapper?!”

    (Note: the suppository wrappers are aluminum foil with sharp edges. Ouch.)

    Must Be One Of Them Transdimensional Cameras

    | Maryland, USA |

    Customer: “Hi, I’m here to pick up my pictures.”

    (I grab the customer’s pictures and she proceeds to look through them. She then hands one of the pictures to me.)

    Customer: “Can you print this the other way?”

    Me: “The other way?”

    Customer: “Yes, flip it around.”

    Me: “Okay…”

    (Confused, I go into the lab, insert the film negative into the machine upside down and print a mirrored image for the customer.)

    Me:¬†”Here you go!”

    Customer:¬†”No, no, no. Flip it around!”

    Me: “I did. See, it’s mirrored.”

    Customer:¬†”No, no, no. My husband took the picture.¬†Can you flip it around and print him?”

    Me:¬†”…”
