    Come Clean With Your True Intentions

    | Bella Vista, AR, USA |

    (I am in the back doing dishes after the breakfast rush.)

    Manager: “Hey, [my name], a customer says that the men’s restroom is really dirty. Could you go clean it up?”

    (I go to the restroom to take a look. My manager comes with me. We quickly agree that the bathroom is not in any way dirty.)

    Manager: “Just sweep up a little and call it good.”

    (I leave to get the broom. While getting it, a customer comes up to me. At this point, I am not aware this customer is the one that complained to my manager.)

    Customer: “Is it okay in there?”

    (I assume he means is it okay to go in, and tell him yes. The customer goes in and comes right back out straight up to me.)

    Customer: “Bull****!”

    Me: “Is something wrong?”

    Customer: “That bathroom ain’t clean! I want to talk to your corporate office!”

    Me: “About what?”

    Customer: “This store is unacceptably dirty, and the workers are unfriendly!”

    Me: “I’m sorry—”

    Customer: “By the way, can I get a job here?”

    Customer: “Excuse me, can you tell me how this converter works?”

    Me: “Let me see. It looks like you put your old photo negatives into it and it converts them to digital images.”

    Customer: “So, it doesn’t make them Christians?”

    Me: “Uh…what? Who?”

    Customer: “It says it’s a “converter”. So, does it make the people in the pictures turn from devil worshippers into Christians?”

    Me: *stunned* “No…No, it doesn’t do anything like that. It takes old negative strips from film cameras and converts them into digital images.”

    Customer: “So, it won’t make them Christian?”

    Me: “Nope.”

    Customer: “What a useless piece of crap that is, then!”

    These Aren’t The Bags I’m Looking For

    | England, UK | At The Checkout, Wild & Unruly

    (I’m working New Years Eve on the tills when three rather older women come into the store. After I serve them, the door alarm goes off right after they leave. My manager goes to investigate.)

    Manager: “I’m sorry, ladies, but I’m going to need to check your bags and receipts in case you took something.”

    Woman #1: “No, we didn’t take anything. We swear!”

    Manager: “Well, I’m sorry, but I’m going to have to ask you to come back into the store and your bags be searched.”

    Woman #1: “No, we haven’t stolen! Look!”

    (Suddenly, the women—all in their fifties at least—begin to lift up their long skirts and tops and pull down their bras a bit. Not finding anything, my manager lets them go and comes back into the store.)

    Manager: “Thank God I get to go home and get drunk soon. I need a stiff whiskey to get those images out of my head!”

    Some Things Just Don’t Add Up, Part 7

    | Indianapolis, IN, USA | Food & Drink, Math & Science

    (A customer is in the produce section and selects a 10 lb. bag of potatoes. She’ll actually save money if she buys two 5 lb. bags of potatoes, due to a buy one, get one free deal.)

    Me: “Ma’am, our 5 lb. bags of potatoes are buy one, get one free this week.”

    (The customer looks back and forth between her 10 lb. and the two 5lb. bags. She is clearly confused.)

    Customer: “I’m sorry, but my family would never eat that many potatoes!”

    A Wolf In Sweets Clothing

    , | Washington, USA |

    (I am working at a caramel apple stand at the local fair. A young girl approaches with her male friend.)

    Me: “Hi, what can I get you?”

    Customer #1: “Can I get a Coke?”

    Customer #2: “Oh, no, come on! We agreed to be healthy.”

    Customer #1: “It’s just a Coke.”

    Customer #2: “Get a water.”

    Customer #1: “I know, but I want the Coke.”

    Customer #2: “You’ll regret it later. You know you will.”

    Customer #1: “Fine. I’ll take a water, please.”

    Customer #2: “See? So much healthier! And think of the calories you’re cutting!”

    Customer #1: “Yeah, you’re right.”

    Me: “Just the water then?”

    Customer #2: “No, can we get two M&M caramel apples?”
