    Not So Pretty In Pink

    | New York, NY, USA | Family & Kids

    (A customer is trying on a black and white top by a well known designer and it fits her very well. Her daughter is with her.)

    Customer: “I just wish this wasn’t black and white. I want something brighter.”

    Me: “Well, we do have a dress by the same designer which has the same silhouette in pink. I think it would look good with your complexion and hair color.”

    Customer: “No thanks. My daughter doesn’t think I look good in pink so I’m going to have to listen to her on this.”

    (The customer’s five-year old daughter solemnly nods with approval.)

    Fat Chance Of A Reasonable Customer

    | Glendale, CA, USA | Top

    Customer: “I’m looking for pants for my daughter.”

    Me: “Okay, what size is your daughter?”

    Customer: “She’s fat like you.”

    Me: “Okay, so I’m a medium. Does your daughter wear mediums?”

    Customer: “No. She’s fat like you. She needs fat pants.”

    Me: “So would a large be okay?”

    Customer: “Fat pants. Large is too small.”

    Me: “Large is the biggest size we have.”

    Customer: “Give me your pants then.”

    Howard Hughes Goes Shopping, Part 2

    | Clovis, CA, USA |

    Me: “Hi, can I help you?”

    Customer: “Yes, I want to know if these clothes will fit.”

    Me: “Sure, our fitting room is right over there.”

    Customer: “No, I don’t want to try them on. I want to know if they will fit.”

    Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am, but unless you try them on, I can’t say if they will fit or not.”

    Customer: “I do not try on clothes in store because they have other people’s cells in them. I do not want to touch other people’s cells. My neighbor had diseases and I burned his house down, and the guy at the 7-11 is sick so I don’t go in there no more!”

    Olfactional Hazards

    , | Melbourne, Australia |

    (A customer comes up to me with a knitted poncho.)

    Customer: “Excuse me, is this 100% wool?”

    Me: “No, it’s 100% acrylic.”

    Customer: “Are you sure? It feels like wool.”

    Me: “It does, but it is acrylic. I saw the tag before it came off.”

    Customer: “But it feels so much like the scarf I’m wearing right now, and that one is 100% wool. It even smells like wool. Smell it!”

    Me: “Um, my nose isn’t good enough to distinguish between wool and acrylic. I’m sorry.”

    Customer: “No, smell it! Then, smell my scarf.” *sniffs both the poncho and scarf* “See, they smell the same.”

    Me: “Okay, I’ll take your word for it.”

    Customer: “No, smell my scarf. Smell it!”

    Me: “Uh…”

    Customer: “SMELL MY SCARF!”

    Truly Fake Intentions

    , | Waterford, MI, USA |

    (A customer and his wife come in to find an outfit for her to wear. He seems particularly interested in one that’s being worn by a mannequin.)

    Me: “Can I help you, sir?”

    Customer: “I was wondering if you have the outfit on the mannequin?”

    Me: “Unfortunately, I sold the last one earlier today. The one the mannequin is wearing is the only one I have.”

    Customer: “Well, why can’t you just give me that one then?”

    Me: “I can, but I do have another almost identical outfit in stock.”

    Customer: “No, I want that one!”

    Me: “Okay, sir.”

    (I start dragging the mannequin to the back.)

    Customer: “Where are you going?”

    Me: “City law says I can’t undress her in front of the windows, sir.”

    Customer: “Well, why can’t I have that one?”

    Me: “Sir?”

    Customer: “I want the one on the mannequin!”

    Me: “That’s what I’m doing sir.”

    Customer: “I WANT THE ONE ON THE MANNEQUIN!”

    (His wife suddenly appears from another part of the store.)

    Customer’s wife: “He just wants to see the mannequin naked.”
