License To Bill

| Wisconsin Dells, WI, USA | At The Checkout, Bad Behavior, Extra Stupid

(I work in the arcade at luxurious resort. Resort guests can use their room key to get a game card to play the arcade games.)

Customer: “Hi, can I get three cards with $50 on each for my family? And here’s my room key; charge it to the room!”

Me: “Sure, I’ll get that for you right away!”

(I give them the cards and the family walks away excited, when five minutes later…)

Customer: “What the h*** is this!? This d*** card isn’t working; I didn’t pay all this money for a card that doesn’t work!”

(She rants for a few more minutes and then throws the card at my face. I pick it up to show it to her.)

Me: “Ma’am, this is your driver’s license, not the game card.”

Customer: *turns really red, takes the card, and walks away sheepishly*

Offer Of A Lift Is Uplifting

| The Netherlands | Awesome Customers, Awesome Workers, Food & Drink

(It has been a very snowy day, and the pavements are dangerously slippery. I’m rounding up payment for a regular, but rather old and fragile customer, who has trouble walking.)

Customer: “Well, I hope it’s not too bad outside.”

Me: “You’re walking?”

Customer: “Yes, my children are out of town, and I do need my shopping done.”

Me: “My shift ends in about ten minutes, and I’m by car. If you want to wait for a bit, I can bring you home.”

(My boss overhears this.)

Boss: “Round up your shift; it’s quiet enough. You can go and bring her home immediately.”

(I take the customer home. One week later, the customer comes in with a home-made apple pie.)

Customer: “You went to the trouble of bringing me home, so I baked you this. Hope you enjoy it!”

(And we did!)

There’s Snow Milk At The Back

| Clifton, NJ, USA | Awesome Customers, Bad Behavior

(It is the day after a snowstorm which had dropped a significant amount of snow on the ground and the store is jumping with people. Even though I’m not feeling well and am in the middle of an eight hour shift on the registers, I manage to be courteous with the customers. A customer proceeds to cut in line and demands.)

Customer: “Where the f*** is the milk?”

Me: “It’s usually in the cases at the back of the store, but we are out of milk right now.”

Customer: “What the h*** kind of store is this that you don’t have milk?”

Me: “Sir, the delivery didn’t come yet.”

Customer: “Why the f*** not?”

(Before I can respond to this, the female customer I have been ringing up answers.)

Female Customer: “Look out the window. See all that white stuff? It’s called snow. The Governor called a state of emergency. The roads have been slippery and some have even been closed. That’s why they don’t have any milk. Maybe you should go out to a farm and get your milk there and stop swearing at this poor girl.”

(The rude customer proceeds to leave, swearing the whole time.)

Me: “Thank you, ma’am. You said exactly what I was thinking but couldn’t say or I’d lose my job.”

Female Customer: “Don’t mention it. He really needs an attitude adjustment. By the way, you sound sick…”

Me: “Oh, it’s just a cold. I’ve been using this bottle of hand sanitizer between orders.”

Female Customer: “Okay, feel better!”

(She takes her change and purchases, and leaves. However, she returns a few minutes later with a cup of tea from the Chinese restaurant next door!)
