    Something For Nothing Or Nothing For Something

    | San Diego, CA, USA | Liars & Scammers, Money

    (A customer comes in with a laptop that he bought and a laptop sleeve that he got for free with the laptop.)

    Me: “Hi, how can I help you?”

    Customer: “Well, this sleeve doesn’t fit the laptop.”

    Me: “Okay, that’s no problem, sir. I don’t have any larger sleeves, but you can take a look at the laptop bags.”

    Customer: “No, I just want my money back.”

    Me: “Well, sir, you didn’t pay anything for the sleeve. It came for free with the laptop as part of a promotion. I can return it for you, but you won’t get any money back.”

    Customer: “Are you sure?”

    Me: “Yes, sir. I can go ask the manager, if you like.”

    Customer: “Do that.”

    (I go in the back and talk to the manager, who tells me exactly what I just told the customer. Then, I head back out to the front.)

    Me: “Well, sir, the manager told me the same thing. I can return it, but you won’t get any money back.”

    Customer: “This is unacceptable! Who do you people think you are? I want my money back!”

    Me: “But, sir, you didn’t pay anything for it.”

    Customer: “This is outrageous! Go get your manager! I’ll get your a** fired!”

    May Cause Belief In Humanity To Melt Away, Part 2

    , | Dallas, TX, USA | Extra Stupid, Food & Drink

    (A lady orders an ice cream cone from our drive-thru window. After getting her ice cream, she comes back about 5 minutes later. Keep in mind it’s a sweltering hot day.)

    Me: “Hi, was there something else I can help you with?”

    Customer: *angrily* “I think there’s something wrong with your ice cream machine!”

    Me: “I’m sorry, I don’t believe there is. What’s wrong?”

    Customer: “My ice cream has melted!”

    Me: “Could it be because it’s 105 degrees outside?”

    Customer: *leaves in a huff*

    Over The Hill And Picking Up Speed, Part 2

    | Liverpool, NY, USA | At The Checkout

    (I work as a cashier in a grocery store. I have a regular customer named Hector. He is eighty-seven years old and he has come to the store every Wednesday for the last three months and will only wait in my line. If my shift hasn’t started yet, he will gather his groceries, including Luanne’s Depends, and wait until my shift starts.)

    Me: “Good afternoon! Did you find everything okay?”

    Hector: “H*** no, I did not! I was looking for the damned chainsaw section, but you don’t even have one!”

    Me: “Well, sir, I’m afraid we don’t sell chainsaws here, this is a grocery store.”

    Hector: “That’s not what the dips*** in the booze aisle told me! Jesus, this is the worst store ever!”

    Me: “Um, I’m sorry, sir. But, hey, if you’re about to blow a gasket, we do have Depends, if you’re interested. They’re on sale right now.”

    Hector: “S***! I forgot to get Luanne’s Depends! She won’t do the nasty with me if I forget them! Thanks, little lady!”

    Wake Up And Smell The Fumes

    | Orange County, CA, USA | Top

    (I’m a public safety officer in charge of the entire campus over the weekend. A large building has been locked, secured, and the key card access has been turned off because the building is being fumigated. I get a call on my work phone.)

    Me: “Campus safety, how can I help you?”

    Faculty: “Hi, I need to get into [building].”

    Me: “Sorry, that building is closed for fumigation.”

    Faculty: “I know, I left something in my office that’s really important. I need to go up and get it.”

    Me: “I understand, but the entire building is locked up so no one can get in.”

    Faculty: “I know, I have been trying to get in. They must have shut off the keycard readers.”

    Me: “You’re trying to get in? You can’t sir. The entire building is filled with toxic fumes.”

    Faculty: “I know that! I just need to get in real fast and grab something.”

    (His office is actually on the 4th floor. Even running and taking the elevator could be a 6-10 minute round trip in poisonous gas.)

    Me: “Sir, I can’t let you in. You could become seriously ill from the fumes. I can’t take that responsibility.”

    Faculty: “What if I wrote you a note saying it was okay?”

    Me: “That likely wouldn’t protect me from much if I let you in and you collapse. Then I would have to go in and get you and compromise my health and safety.”

    Faculty: “But you’re Campus Safety! Isn’t it your job to do that?”

    Me: “I’m ensuring your safety by not letting you in a poison-filled death trap.”

    Faculty: “Fine, then!” *hangs up*

    To Serve Man

    | Northridge, CA, USA | At The Checkout, Top

    (A male customer approaches the cash register.)

    Me: “Hi, how can I help you?”

    Customer: “What did you say to me?”

    Me: “Um, how can I help you?”

    Customer: “You…help me? How can you…help me? YOU?”

    Me: “Um, yes. Do you have a problem with that?”

    Customer: “You can’t help me!”

    Me: “Okay, why not?”

    Customer: “Because I don’t need YOUR help!”

    Me: “Okay, what what do you want me to do? I’m the only one working here.”

    Customer: “I want you to ask me, ‘How may I serve you?’”

    Me: “Um, no.”

    Customer: *cusses up a storm and leaves*
