    One Last Parting Shot, Part 3

    | Estonia |

    (An couple of US tourists come into our library and use the public computers for the Internet. When they start leaving, they come to me again and give me 2 Estonian Crowns.)

    Me: “I’m sorry, I can’t take this.”

    Customer: “What do you mean you can’t take this?! I got it from the bank just down the street. I know it’s not fake. And it says in the rules that it costs 2.”

    Me: “No, I mean–”

    (He cuts me off and starts ranting on how he never wanted to come to Europe anyway and how everything is better in the States. His wife and I manage to calm him down after a few minutes of loud ranting.)

    Me:“Sir, I can’t take your money because just using the computer is free. Only printing costs 2 Crowns.”

    Customer: “Oh. I thought… I mean, I always have to pay in… well… America is still better than Europe!” *hurries out with his wife*

    Not Quite The Car’s Meow

    | Bakersfield, CA, USA |

    (I work for an online traffic school and for some of the counties, we need them to put answers to security questions.

    Me: “Hi, this is ***, how can I help you?”

    Caller: “Hey, it says that I missed a security question and that I need to call this number to continue.”

    Me: “Okay, what question did you miss?”

    Caller: “I missed what is my favorite animal.”

    (I get his personal information and look up his answer.)

    Me: “Sir, the answer we have here says ‘Pussy’. You are aware that this is also the same answer you have for… your favorite food?”

    Caller: *click*

    The Logic Is Weak In This One

    | Victoria, BC, Canada |

    (A man comes out of the fitting room with a pair of pants and talks to my coworker.)

    Customer: “So… it says here on the hanger, that it’s size 34. The tag says 34, and this other tag says 34. But there’s no freaking way I can fit into these! So what does that mean?

    Coworker: “Well, I guess that means you’re not a size 34…”

    Customer: “Oh. Thanks.”

    When Customers Attack

    | Alberta, Canada |

    (A lady comes up to me with a cart.)

    Lady: “Where’s the toilet paper that’s on sale?”

    Me: “It should be in aisle 18.”

    (We’re looking for the toilet paper when another man comes up and stands quietly nearby, clearly waiting for me to help him. The lady turns to the man and RAMS him with her cart.)

    Lady: “Stay back f***er! She’s helping me first!”

    Man: “Excuse me? I was just waiting to ask where the cereal is–”

    Lady: *rams cart into him again* “F*** OFF!”

    (Surprisingly, the man did not retaliate and I waved him off to the appropriate aisle.)

    We Stand Up For Our Own

    , | Ontario, Canada |

    (It’s Christmastime, which is always hellish at our video game store. There is a giant line running all the way to the back of the store, and I am serving a young boy and his grandfather.)

    Me: “Your total comes to $68.98.”

    Customer: “What? That’s too high. That game was fifty dollars.”

    Me: “Oh, the game is actually $59.99.”

    Customer: “I told you I didn’t want any of your extra s***. I just want this game thing he wants.”

    Me: “I’m sorry you misread the price sir, but that language in unacceptable in this store, especially with so many young people nearby.”

    Customer: “You know what, I didn’t come in here for your attitude. I came in here to buy my stupid grandson’s stupid game!”

    Me: “Then it’s $68.98…”

    Customer: “These games are so absolutely stupid. You people waste your time and your money on this s***! You people are all fat and unemployed and pathetic! You game people need to get f***ing jobs!”

    Another customer in line: “She’s doing her job right now, idiot.”

    Another customer in line #2: “Get lost, jerk!”

    Me: “That line behind you is composed of gamers, sir.”

    (At this point, the entire lineup starts yelling at the guy that he’s a jerk.)

    Customer: *flees the store*

    (For the next half hour every single customer, most of them probably gamers, tells me that I don’t deserve that kind of treatment, and apologizes for him. It is easily one of the best days I’ve ever had at work.)
