    Beware The Nines Of Merch

    | Victoria, BC, Canada | Uncategorized

    (I’m at the service desk when an elderly man comes up.)

    Me: “Can I help you find anything, sir?”

    Customer: “No, but you can answer me a question.”

    Me: “Yes?”

    Customer: “Do you have anything for sale that doesn’t end in .99?”

    Me: “Well, we’ve got some 79’s and 49’s, but prices are usually always going to end–”

    Customer: “Are you kidding me?! I know what you’re trying to do with those nines! I know that you’re just trying to convince me it’s cheaper! Do you think I’m stupid or something?!”

    Me: “…”

    Customer: “TAKE THE NINES SERIOUSLY!” *storms out*

    (An older woman walks up to the electronics desk and addresses me.)

    Customer: “I’d like to buy Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.”

    Me: “Is this a gift for someone?”

    Customer: “Yes, this is for my 4-year-old grandson.”

    Me: “Well, ma’am, just to let you know, this game has been rated ‘M’ for Mature, and has a lot of violence, profanity, drug use, and sexual content.”

    Customer: “That’s okay, he’s already been exposed to all that…”

    Think Before You Ink

    | Indiana, USA | Uncategorized

    (A customer paying by check tries to use the stylus from the debit machine to fill out her check.)

    Me: “I’m sorry ma’am, but that’s not a real pen.”

    (I reach into my pocket to give her a real one, but she continues “writing” with the stylus.)

    Me: “Ma’am? That’s not a real pen.”

    (She stops and shakes the stylus to get the ink flowing.)

    Me: “Ma’am, you can’t use that to write with.”

    (She continues shaking the stylus and trying to write.)

    Me: “That’s not a pen!”

    Customer: “Hey, this pen doesn’t work!”

    Me: *giving up* “I’m sorry, ma’am, but I forgot to put ink in those pens this morning…” hands her the real pen* “…here, use this.”

    Customer: “Thanks!”
