October Theme Of The Month: Halloween!

Seriously Bad Hair Day

| Melbourne, Australia | Uncategorized

(It’s 10pm we are in the final motions of locking up, registers closed and lights off. I’m just locking the door.)

Customer: *runs up in a panic* “Oh no! You are closed? It’s an emergency! I really need to buy one thing!”

Me: “Sorry, we’re closed. Maybe you could come back in the morning.”

Customer: “No! I can’t wait that long-this is an emergency! Please help me!”

Me: “OK, I suppose I can help you quickly for an emergency. Do you need antibiotics or paracetamol or something?”

Customer: “I need a packet of hair pins!”

Photo Incognito

| Ottawa, ON, Canada | Uncategorized

Me: “How can I help you, ma’am?”

Customer: “My daughter’s passport photo was just rejected.”

Me: “Did she take it here?”

Customer: “No, it was taken at [other location].”

Me: “What can we do for you then?”

Customer: “It needs to be retaken!”

Me: “Well, if you would like to have your daughter come in we will be happy to take it for her.”

Customer: “She has to be here?”

The Problem Was Licked

| Albuquerque, NM, USA | Uncategorized

(I am troubleshooting with a customer. I notice the liquid damage indicator is red, which means it has been exposed to liquid.)

Me: “I’m sorry, but your warranty is void since the phone has been exposed to liquid.”

Customer: “No, it hasn’t! I’ve never dropped it in water.”

Me: “Well that sticker only turns red when its been exposed to moisture.”

Customer: “Well then, of course it’s red. I licked it!”

Me: “Unfortunately, that would count as liquid damage.”

Customer: “That’s stupid! I just wanted to see if it really works!”

Yukon See It On A Map, Part 2

| Chicago, IL, USA | Uncategorized

(I am checking out a man with a thick southern accent.)

Me: “How would you like to pay for that?”

Customer: “Oh, darn. I must’ve forgotten my credit card at home. All I got is money.”

Me: “We do take cash.”

Customer: “It’s American money. I know you folks don’t take that.”

Me: “We take American money. This is America.”

(The man’s mouth literally drops open.)

Customer: “No fooling? When did that happen?”

Me: “When Illinois became a territory of the United States of America?”

Customer: “America took land from the Canadians? I must’ve missed it on the news.”

Smelly Cat, Smelly Cat, What Are They Feeding You

| Farmington Hills, MI, USA | Uncategorized

Customer: “Oh, I needed help putting in this cat food, and the young man put in the wrong brand!”

Me: “Okay, let’s go over there and get the right one.”

(We walk over, and she looks at about five different bags of cat food, then goes to a bag of litter.)

Customer: “I think it was this one I wanted.”

Me: “Wait, did you want cat food or litter?”

Customer: “What’s the difference?”
