    Easter Bunny Goes North

    | NC, USA | Family & Kids, Religion

    (I’m working as an Easter Bunny at a local mall. A little girl walks in and stands in front of me. I wave to her.)

    Girl: “Hi, Easter Bunny.”

    (I wave again; Easter Bunnies don’t talk.)

    Girl’s Mom: “Be sure to tell him what you want him to bring you!”

    Girl: “Oh yeah!”

    (There’s a pause. I raise my arms like I’m shrugging.)

    Girl: “Um… I want you to be sure to bring me lots of toys for Christmas…”

    Putting The Cuss Into Repercussions

    | Birmingham, England, UK | Bad Behavior, Family & Kids, Money

    (I overhear an employee and an older customer, who is accompanied by her grandson. She is trying to return an expensive toy.)

    Employee: “I can offer you a replacement or gift voucher, but without the receipt I can’t give you a cash refund.”

    Customer: “No, you’ll give me a refund in cash.”

    Employee: “I can’t do that without the receipt. If the toy is faulty I can replace it for you, or you can choose something else.”

    Customer: “No, you’ll give me £120 in cash, out of the till. End of.”

    Grandson: “Nana, you’re not allowed to say ‘end of’ to people.”

    Customer: “Shush, I’ll say what I like. I’m allowed to say what I like. They just don’t want to give me £120 out of the f****** till.”

    Grandson: “You’re not allowed to say the f-word, Nana!”

    Customer: “Shut up.”

    Employee: “I’m really sorry, but without your receipt I can’t do a cash refund. If you come back with your receipt we’ll be able to give you a refund.”

    Customer: “F*** off!”

    Grandson: *to employee* “I’m sorry my nana said that. She doesn’t know you’re not allowed to say the f-word.”

    Real Sugar Can’t Be Beet

    | WA, USA | At The Checkout, Bad Behavior, Food & Drink

    (A customer comes up with two packages of[energy drink].)

    Customer: “Is this sugar free?”

    Me: “Nope, afraid not. The sugar free usually has a lighter coloring on the box.”

    (The customer repeats his question twice more, and I repeat my answer twice more. Finally, he decides to buy the two packages of normal [energy drink].)

    Me: “All right, here’s your receipt!”

    Customer: “Wait here. I’ll go get the sugar free…”

    (Puzzled, I keep an eye on his groceries. When he returns, he takes the normal [energy drink] out of the bag, putting the new packages in the bag.)

    Me: “Sir, didn’t you want to purchase those, too?”

    Customer: “No! I told you, I was going to get sugar free! You rang me up for them!”

    Me: “Sir, I told you three times that you were buying the regular kind. If you want those instead, you’re going to have to do an exchange.”

    Customer: “No! I told you! I wanted sugar free! I have no time for this!”

    (I call over my supervisor.)

    Supervisor: “What’s up?”

    (I explain the situation, calling it a slight problem in communication.)

    Customer: “I told her; I’m very busy! I have no time for this!”

    Supervisor: “Sir, in the time it took me to walk over here, you could’ve had this done and been on your way. I’ll take care of this on another register.”

    (Without a word further, my supervisor takes the customer’s groceries and brings them to another register. A regular customer is behind the other customer, and has witnessed the whole thing.)

    Regular Customer: “Geez! People sure are awful, huh?”

    Got To Give Him Credit For Trying

    | MD, USA | At The Checkout, Money

    (We just opened for service. Our first customer of the day comes in.)

    Customer: “Hi, do you guys take [credit card name]?”

    Coworker: “No, sorry, sir.”

    (The customer leaves, but he comes back about an hour later.)

    Customer: “Hi! Do you guys take [credit card name]?”

    Coworker: “Nope, sorry. But we take checks!”

    Customer: “Nope, that doesn’t work. Thanks anyway.”

    (An hour later, he comes back.)

    Customer: “Still not taking [credit card name]?”

    Coworker: “Nope, sorry!”

    Customer: “Okay…”

    (He leaves, again. An hour later..)

    Customer: “NOW do you take [credit card name]?”

    Me: “Sorry, sir, we do not.”

    Customer: “Jeez, I’m never coming back here! You guys never take [credit card name]!”

    (He storms out. At the end of the day…)

    Customer: “So, how about now?”
