    No Returns On The Can Of Worms

    | Syracuse, NY, USA | Pets & Animals

    (I’m standing at the service center chatting with a co-worker when a customer walks up and places a bag on the counter.)

    Customer: “I’d like to return these pants.”

    Me: “Of course! Do you have the receipt?”

    Customer: “Yeah, it’s in the bag.”

    (She opens the bag and little bugs come jumping out of the bag and scuttle around the counter.)

    Customer: “Those aren’t mine! I don’t even have animals! They aren’t
    mine!”

    Me: *speechless*

    Red Light ATM

    | Melbourne, Australia | Rude & Risque

    (I am a cashier serving an elderly woman in her 70′s or 80′s. I have just finished scanning her items and she is handing me the money after looking through her purse for several minutes.)

    Customer: “Here you go, dear. I was a bit worried for a moment that I wouldn’t have enough money! I thought I might have to…well, you’re probably to young to know.”

    Me: “What’s that, ma’am?”

    Customer: “Well, I thought I might have to go down to [well known brothel] and stand out on the street. You know, earn some fast cash!”

    Me: *speechless*

    Customer: *laughing* “You have a lovely day now!”

    Trending In The Wrong Direction

    | UK |

    (I work at a fairly indie bar. We have a lot of real ales on tap, which we serve in special old-fashioned mugs.)

    Me: “Here you go,sir. One [name of ale].”

    Customer: “This mug has a short straw on the bottom.”

    Me: “That’s okay, I can take it off.” *moving to pull it away*

    Customer: “Nah, you can leave it on. I want to start a new fashion trend!”

    Me: *laughing* “Okay, I’ll leave it for you. That comes to [total].”

    Customer: *hands over money* “Actually, I better take it off. The missis might get jealous I started a new trend and she didn’t!”

    Obviously, He Needs Food For Thought

    | Connecticut, USA | Food & Drink, Health & Body

    (I work in a large, well-known used bookstore. We offer complimentary coffee and doughnuts to our patrons, but we do not have a cafe or serve any other food. The bookshelves are extremely obvious and numerous. A middle-aged man enters.)

    Customer: “I’ll have a medium hot dog to go.”

    Me: *laughing* “Sorry, sir! We’re fresh out of hot dogs!”

    Customer: *rolling his eyes and heaving a big sigh* “Okay, then what else do you have?”

    Me: “Um, we have coffee and doughnuts.”

    Customer: “That’s it? You don’t have any sandwiches or anything? What kind of a restaurant is this?”

    Me: “We’re a bookstore.”

    Customer: “A bookstore!? But I’m hungry!”

    Me: “Well, like I said, we do have coffee and doughnuts–”

    Customer: “Forget it! I’ll find another restaurant. This is ridiculous!”

    Practice Safe Lunch, Use A Condiment

    | Indiana, USA |

    (A very attractive woman approaches me at my office desk.)

    Customer: “Where can I find the condoms…oh, never mind. I see them.”

    (She walks over, grabs a bottle of ketchup, and checks out.)
