    Misplaced Responsibility

    | Vancouver Island, Canada |

    Customer: “Do you guys do price matching?”

    Me: “Yes we do.”

    Customer: “Ok, well Wal-Mart has this vacuum on sale for $27.99 and you have it on for $34.99. Will you match that?”

    Me: “Yes, that’s no problem. I just need to see a copy of the Wal-Mart flyer with that vacuum.”

    Customer: “You don’t have the flyer?”

    Me: “…No. We don’t carry Wal-Mart’s flyer.”

    Customer: “You want me to drive all the way home to get Wal-Mart’s flyer and come all the way back here? Are you sure you don’t have it here?”

    Me: “No, we don’t have Wal-Mart’s flyer.”

    Customer: (angrily) “Well, you SHOULD! Jesus Christ, do I have to do everything?”

    (Customer mutters and walks away.)

    Overuse Of The Discrimination Card

    | Ontario, Canada |

    Customer: “Do you have any maps of South Africa?” (We’re in Ontario, Canada.)

    Me, having a look: “No, it seems we don’t. Your best bet will be online or to wait till you get there.”

    Customer: “But you have maps of everywhere else! I looked in the computer and it said you had them!”

    Me: “Did we have any in stock?”

    Customer: “You have maps of places all over the states, but not South Africa.”

    Me: “I guess there’s more interest cause people can drive there.”

    Customer: “This is discrimination! I want a map of South Africa.”

    Me: “Let me go check the computer again.” *runs*

    I Sense A Rejection Letter

    , | Mount Vernon, IA, USA |

    Me: “Hi, my name is ***** at ******** College, and I’m calling this evening to talk to ***** about her college search. Is she available?”

    Older man who answered: “Sorry, she’s still got a few weeks left in jail.”

    Me: “Uh…okay. Would you mind just taking down a couple pieces of contact information for her?”

    Man: “I could take it, but I just don’t know how well it’d go, what with all the drugs she’s on right now.”

    Me: “I’m sorry, is this a joke?”

    Man: “No, no joke…”

    A Rose By Any Other Name

    | Kansas, USA |

    (A customer comes to the bakery and asks me if we sell some ointment.)

    Me: “Sorry, but we don’t sell that here.”

    Customer: “Where can I get it?”

    Me: “I would suggest one of the local pharmacies.” *I name a few, including B & J’s Pharmacy*

    Customer: “Is B & J’s Pharmacy…a pharmacy?”

    Me: “Yes…”

    Of All The Moments For Freud To Slip

    | Australia | Food & Drink, Language & Words, Rude & Risque, Top

    (I was working the candy bar when a I was approached by a man seeing Bridge to Terabithia with two young kids. He points to the popcorn machine:)

    Customer: “I’ll have two boxes of cockporn, please.”

    (There was a two second pause as the customer’s eyes went wide with horror…and then I started to laugh. He got the popcorn and ran upstairs, with me standing behind the counter with tears running down my face.)
