    Reading Is Addictive

    | Colorado, USA | Family & Kids

    (Two kids in the 10 to 12-year old range come to the register with 3 different marijuana-themed magazines.)

    Me: “Um, I don’t think I can sell you those.”

    Kids: “But our mom says it’s okay.”

    Me: “Is she even in the store?”

    (Their mother comes over a few minutes later and buys the magazines.)

    Mother: “As long as they’re reading, right?”

    Never Outshine A Customer

    | Canberra, Australia | Bizarre

    (I am approaching a middle-aged woman who has come into the store.)

    Me: *very cheerfully* “Hey there! How’re you today?”

    Customer: “Fine. And you?”

    Me: “I’m great actually.”

    Customer: *yells* “Stop showing off!”

    Me: *speechless*

    The Great State Of Confusion, Part 3

    | Virginia, USA | Food & Drink, Geography

    Customer: “Excuse me, I have a question about your wild Alaskan Salmon. Why does it say it’s a product of the United States on it?”

    Me: “Yes, ma’am, it is.”

    Customer: “But if it’s a product of the US, then it’s not really Alaskan salmon, right?”

    Me: *speechless* “Um, the label’s correct, ma’am.”

    Customer: “So, then it’s not from Alaska?”

    Me: “Alaska is a part of the United States. The salmon is fresh from Alaska.”

    Customer: “Oh, okay…” *rolls eyes and leaves*

    Jessica Simpson Isn’t The Only One

    | Pennsylvania, USA | Food & Drink

    (I’m on the phone taking an order for pick-up.)

    Customer: “I’d like 50 wings please.”

    Me: “Okay, would you like those buffalo?”

    Customer: “No, chicken.”

    Water You, Stupid, Part 6

    | Woburn, MA, USA | Food & Drink

    Customer: “Can I have a glass of water?”

    Me: “Sure.” *gets him cup of water*

    Customer: “Are we in Woburn?”

    Me: “Yes.”

    Customer: “Oh, so is this, uh, Woburn water?”

    Me: *sigh* “Yes.”

    Customer: “Didn’t this stuff kill people?”

    Me: “That was years ago.”

    Customer: “No, I think it was very recent.”

    Me: “No, the movie was just released very recently. The water’s fine now.”

    Customer: “I’d rather not take my chances. Can I get a bottle of water instead with a cup of ice?”

    Me: “You know where ice comes from, right?”

    Customer: “Huh?”

    Me: “Never mind. Enjoy.” *hands them bottle of water and ice made from Woburn water*
