Like Father, Like Run

(A man brings in his father, who didn’t speak a word of English.)

Customer: “Excuse me, how much are your rooms?”

Me: “Sir, we don’t have rooms here.”

Customer: “Oh, not your room, sorry. I mean, how much does it cost for you to take care of my father?”

Me: “Excuse me?”

Customer: “He has some issues and, frankly, I don’t think I want him around anymore.”

Me: “Sir, this is not a hotel or a nursing home.”

Customer: “This isn’t Social Services?”

Me: “No, this is [non-profit] Social Services, and we don’t offer what you’re looking for.”

Customer: “Look, how much is it going to cost me to leave here today without my father with me?”

Caller “Hi, I asked you to pierce my daughter’s ears earlier, but apparently you won’t do it. I think that’s unacceptable!”

(Note: the caller sounds about 14.)

Me: “Okay, I’m sorry about that. If I can just confirm some details with you, I’ll note it down and you can send her back in. Can I get her name and date of birth?”

(The caller confirms the name, and the date of birth as the 10th April 1996.)

Me: “And can I confirm your date of birth please?”

Caller “The 12th, of September, 1996.”

Me: “…1996?”

Caller *hangs up*

(An elderly customer is checking out.)

Customer: “How do I use this card?”

Me: “All you have to do is slide it through, then push the ‘debit’ button on the left.”

Customer: ”Thanks. What does ‘PIN’ mean?”

Me: “Your pin number is the number that goes with your card. You just need to enter it in and hit the green button in the corner.”

Customer: “Okay, but turn around. I don’t need you stealing my money away.”

(I think she is joking, but she stares at me until I turn around. She then states each number in her pin out loud as she pushes the buttons.)

Customer: “You didn’t peek, did you?”

Customer: “Please connect me to the Dental Clinic. I need a hysterectomy.”
