    More Than You Bargained For, Part 3

    | Perth, Western Australia, Australia | Extra Stupid

    (The prepaid phones we sell are displayed on a wall, with their price printed next to each phone.)

    Customer: “Hey mate, how much is that phone there?”

    Me: *glancing at pricing card* “One hundred fifty nine dollars.”

    Customer: “Can you do it for one sixty?”

    Me: *speechless*

    Customer: *looks at me expectantly*

    Me: “Sure, why not?”

    Coffee As Hot As Your Temper, Part 2

    | Aberdeen, Scotland, UK |

    Customer: “An extra hot latte, please.”

    (I make her drink, place it on the counter, and go to enter it into the till. I notice her touching the side of the mug and frowning.)

    Me: “Is something the matter?”

    Customer: “This is cold. I wanted it to be extra hot.”

    Me: “Ma’am, that is an extra hot latte. The contents are very hot. The mug is insulated so you don’t scald your hands.”

    Customer: *still touching the sides of the mug* “I don’t care. I want it extra hot. Make it again!”

    Me: “Ma’am, if it’s cold, go ahead and stick your finger in it, or taste it. I assure you, it’s very hot.”

    (She sticks her finger in angrily. She yelps loudly and pulls it back out.)

    Me: “Is that hot enough? As I said, the mug is insulated.”

    Customer: “That’s irresponsible! How can you tell the drink is hot?!”

    Peace On Earth, Or At Least During The Day Shift

    | Illinois, USA |

    (The store is open Easter Sunday. We only have three people on duty: two salesmen and myself.)

    Customer: “Wow, I’m really surprised you’re open on Easter!”

    Me: “Well, it doesn’t matter to us. I’m Muslim and my salesmen here are Jewish. We offered to work today so the other employees could celebrate the holiday.”

    Customer: “And you all get along?”

    Me: “Um…yes.”

    Customer: “I didn’t think that was allowed!”

    Hard Times Hit Hard

    | Calgary, AB, Canada | Top

    (I’m stocking soup when a man approaches me.)

    Customer: “Where’s your bacon bits?”

    Me:*looking up* “Down at the end of this aisle, on the right, at the bottom.”

    Customer: “Hold on…aren’t you [my name]?”

    Me: “Yes. Can I help you?”

    Customer: “I’m [name]! We went to high school together. Wow, you sure must have had it rough, huh?”

    Me: “Sorry?”

    Customer: “Well, you know, all this time and you’re just stocking shelves…”

    Me: “I’m the owner of this and two other stores. I went to business school for years and invested in the stock market.”

    Customer: “Oh! Well, nice to see you again, then…”

    (I found out later that he was a janitor.)
