Winner Of The No-Door-Bell Prize

Customer: “Why won’t the door open?”

Me: “It opens like a normal door. It’s not automatic.”

Customer: “I don’t get it.”

Me: “Give it a push.”

(The customer backs up and tries to ‘activate’ the door again.)

Customer: “It won’t open!”

Me: “Ma’am, would you like a bag to carry any of these items?”

Customer: “No, I’m an environmentalist. I don’t want to add to destroy our environment.”

Me: “Ma’am, security for this store requests that everyone at least receive a bag to know that you’ve bought items here.”

Customer: “You can’t tell me that I have to take a bag and I won’t have it. I refuse to contribute to the garbage problem!”

Me: “Fine, would you like to keep these hangers that your clothes came with?”

Customer: “No, just throw them out.”

Thankful For A Thankless Job

| Florida, USA | Movies & TV, Uncategorized

(I am working behind the concession stand on Thanksgiving day.)

Me: “How can I help you?”

Customer: “Can I buy some of that food over there?”

(They point to the employee’s Thanksgiving food we have to eat between shows.)

Me: “No, sir, I’m sorry it’s not for sale.”

Customer: “Why not? That’s ridiculous.”

Me: “Our families brought us that food for Thanksgiving since we have to be here instead of celebrating with them. I can’t sell it to you.”

Customer: “You’re so selfish!”

They Cry Real Tears Too

(I watch as a customer unfolds every single shirt at a table, holds it up, and then puts it back. She walks to the next table and I begin refolding the shirts.)

Customer: “Oh, wow!”

Me: “Is something wrong, ma’am?”

Customer: “No, nothing. I just didn’t realize they got real people to fold the shirts!”

Empty Cans, Even Emptier Stomachs

| Ontario, Canada | Religion, Uncategorized

(My friends and I are going door to door collecting cans for a food drive at our church.)

Me: “Hello, we are collecting cans of food for [church]. Would you like to donate?”

Teenage Girl: “So you guys take cans. What about pop cans?”

Me: “No, we only take canned foods.”

Teenage Girl: “Are you sure? I have some pop cans I don’t need.”

Me: “No, we only accept canned foods.”

Teenage Girl: “Okay, I’ll be right back.”

(The girl closes the door and bangs around inside for a couple minutes. Then she opens the door with a handful of cans.)

Teenage Girl: “Here are the cans. I grabbed some pop cans too.”

(We look at the cans she gave us, and realize that they are all empty.)

Teenage Girl: *to her mom* “I took out the recycling, Mom!”
