Yukon Spend It

| British Columbia, Canada | Uncategorized

Me: “Okay, your total is $189.14. Cash or credit?”

Customer: “Cash.” *hands me $200 American*

Me: “Oh, I’m sorry. We don’t accept US currency.”

Customer: “Why not?”

Me: “Because this is Canada.”

Customer: “Last time I was in Canada I used American cash.”

Me: “Well, sir, that place probably accepted different currencies. I can only accept Canadian.”

Customer: “I don’t have any! I only have Visa.”

Me: “We accept Visa.”

Customer: “Wait! Let me get this straight: you won’t accept my American cash, but you’ll accept an American credit card?”

Me: “Yes.”

(He throws the card at me. I swipe it through and he gathers his bags.)

Customer: “This is ridiculous. When did Canada get its own currency, anyway?”

Contains Scenes Of A Fraudulent Nature

| Baltimore, MD, USA | Uncategorized

Guest: “Hi, I just accidentally ordered a movie, and I didn’t mean to. Take it off my bill.”

Me: “Let me just look that up.”

(I see that he’s had a movie voided off his bill every day he’s been here this week. I had my manager listen in.)

Me: “Sir? You say this was a mistake?”

Guest: “Yeah, I didn’t mean to order it.”

Me: “It looks like you’ve asked that a movie be voided off your bill every day that you’ve been here this week. Is that correct?”

Guest: “Yeah, it’s this stupid TV. It just starts the movies even if you don’t want them to start. It’s not my fault. I was just looking at the description.”

(My boss goes over to our cable system, where we look at each movie order and the length of time they’ve watched each movie. Based on the price, we knew he was watching ‘adult’ films.)

Me: “Sir, it looks like you’ve watched this movie for 20 minutes. Is there a reason you watched that much before calling us?”

Guest: “I don’t need the damn movie anymore, okay? I don’t need it anymore!”

Me: “Sir, that is too much information, and we will not be crediting any more movies off your bill.”

Always Right, Unless There’s Not Enough Light, Part 2

| Sacramento, CA, USA | Uncategorized

Me: “Hello there, sir. How can I help you?”

Customer: “I’m looking for batteries for this calculator.”

Me: “Okay, but just so you know, that calculator doesn’t really need batteries. It has little solar panels right on the front that power it.”

Customer: “Solar panels? I want to use this calculator indoors!”

Not A Nice Touch

| Australia | Uncategorized

Me: “Hi! What can I get for you?”

(Customer places his order, pays, and takes his food without saying a word.)

Me: “Here you are. Have a nice day.”

Customer: “What if I don’t want to have a nice day, huh?”

Me: “Um…don’t?”

Customer: “Don’t be so rude!” *storms out angrily*

Coworker: “What just happened?”

Women’s Studies, Not Studying Women

| Sydney, Australia | Uncategorized

(I work in enrollment in my university.)

Me: “What degree would you like to enrol in?”

Customer: “I don’t know.”

Me: “Well, what are you interested in?”

Customer: “Hot girls.”

Me: “You mean ‘Women’s Studies’?”

Customer: “Does that have lots of girls in it?”

Me: “Pretty much all girls.”

Customer: “Awesome, I’ll do that.”

(Note: ‘Women’s Studies’ studies feminism.)
