| Idaho, USA | Uncategorized

(I had just finished taking an order for a customer. My parents are from Germany, so I have a slight accent.)

Me: “That will be $10.87, ma’am. Anything else for you?”

Customer: “You have a a very neat accent, miss. Where are you from?”

Me: “I was born in Colorado, ma’am.”

Customer: “Wow, really? What language do they speak there?”

Me: “…”

There’s No Pills Like Home

(A patient called in to inquire about her medication she had just picked up.)

Me: *on the phone* “Pharmacy.”

Patient: “Hi, I just picked up this medication, and I think I may have a problem.”

Me: “Is there something incorrect with how it was filled?”

Patient: “No, it’s just that the cream here says to apply locally, and I’m going out of town tonight. I was wondering if I could still use it.”

Me: “Um…yes, yes you can.”

Patient: “Oh, OK good…. Oh…oh God. I just realized…oh my God, just forget I asked! How stupid of me!”

Kookie Cookie Karma

| New York, USA | Top

Me: “Can I help you, ma’am?”

Customer: “Yes. What are these?”

Me: “That is a fortune cookie, ma’am.”

Customer: “It doesn’t look like a cookie. Where are the chocolate chips?”

Me: “Ma’am, these are a different kind of cookie. You open them up and they tell your fortune on a piece of paper.”

Customer: “What kind of cookies have paper in them!?”

Me: “Fortune cookies, ma’am.”

Customer: “This is an outrage! Cookies are meant to be eaten, and paper isn’t EATABLE!”

Me: “Please, ma’am, the paper is–”

Customer: “Shut up! I’m leaving.”

(The customer begins to storm out but in her anger misses the door and walks right into the wall. When she finally stumbles out, I open up the fortune cookie and read its message: “Do not worry. You will get what is coming to you in life.”)

(A customer comes up to the register with three under 5-year-old kids with a “Watchmen” graphic novel.)

Me: “Hi! So have you seen Watchmen yet?”

Customer: “No, we are going right after this.”

Me: “You do know that Watchmen is a very violent movie geared towards adults, right?”

Customer: “Oh, it’s okay. We’re from the Bronx.”

A Word Away From Being Manhandled

| Livonia, MI, USA | Uncategorized

(Note: I am seven months pregnant with a huge belly.)

Customer: *laughing* “Oh man, you totally look like you’re pregnant!”

Me: “Well yes, sir, I am. What can I get you?”

Customer: “But that’s just impossible. It’s so ridiculous!”

Me: “I can assure you, sir, it’s not. I am pregnant. Can I get you something?”

Customer: *points at my nametag* “Look! You even have a girl’s name!”

Me: “That’s because I’m a girl. I am a PREGNANT GIRL. Now, can I get you anything to eat?”

Customer: *walks away, laughing hysterically* “A pregnant boy, that’s just crazy!”
