    Holding A Smoking Gun

    | South West, FL, USA | Criminal/Illegal

    (A customer is filling out a handgun license application.)

    Customer: “It asks here if I have a misdemeanor for domestic violence.”

    Me: “Yes, that is what it is asking you.”

    Customer: “You can’t buy a gun if you have a domestic violence charge?”

    Me: “Of course not. You can’t even legally be in this store.”

    Customer: “What do you mean, ‘Of course not’? You f****** b****!”

    Me: “Have a good one.”

    Customer: *grabs paperwork, tears it up, and tosses it at me*

    Preparing For The Not-So-Inevitable

    | Ontario, Canada |

    Customer: “Don’t get upset, okay?”

    Me: *confused* “…okay?”

    Customer: “Just, please don’t be mad at me.”

    Me: “Um, all right.”

    Customer: “I like your hair.”

    Me: “Thanks.”

    Customer: “It’s a compliment.”

    Me: “I know. Thanks.”

    Customer: “So, don’t get mad.”

    (I spell out the password for the customer to write down.)

    Customer: “Thanks. Is the 4 capital, too?”

    The Gift That Keeps On Grouping

    | Michigan, USA |

    Customer: “Hi, I’d like to return this item, I can’t give it as a gift .”

    (He hands me a copy of Pygmalion.)

    Me: “That shouldn’t be a problem. Is there anything wrong with it?”

    Customer: “Turns out it’s a play. They wont be able to read it.”

    Me: “Oh, they don’t like plays?”

    Customer: “No, they can’t read it because there aren’t enough people to read the parts!”

    Me: “Might I suggest that they just read it like a regular book?”

    Customer: *looks at me like I’m crazy*

    When One Door Closes, Another One…Never Mind

    | Carmel, CA, USA | Extra Stupid

    (I work in a small gift shop that has two doors, one in front and one in back. The front door latches to the outside wall to keep it from swinging shut. One day, a little old lady comes to the back door.)

    Customer: “Excuse me, but your front door is locked.”

    Me: “Are you sure? I’m looking at it now. It’s open.”

    Customer: “Well, I just tried it and I couldn’t get it open.”

    Me: “I’m sorry, but it’s open already.”

    Customer: “But I couldn’t open it!”

    (At this point, it dawns on me that she has been trying to open the door while it was latched to the wall, while ignoring the obviously open doorway to her immediate left.)

    Me: “I’m sorry. I’ll look into it…”
