    When The Unforgettable Meets The Incorrigible

    , | Baton Rouge, LA, USA |

    (I have just started working at popular women’s lingerie store and still don’t really know all of the bras that we sell.)

    Customer: “I am looking for a bra. I don’t know the name of it, but I know what it looks like.”

    Me: “Well, if you can tell me about it, I can help you find it.”

    Customer: “I think it’s called the Unstoppable.”

    Me: “Oh, that’s the Unforgettable.”

    Customer: “No, no, that’s not it.”

    Me: “Well, would you like me to show you the bra I have in mind?”

    Customer: “No, thank you! You have been no help at all and if I see a manager, I’m going to talk to her.”

    (The customer walks off and then comes back holding the Unforgettable bra.)

    Customer: “I found it! It was the Unforgettable, just like I told you!”

    We Smurfs Stick Together

    , | Michigan, USA | Top

    Manager: “And who was helping you today?”

    Customer #1: *points to me* “That nice blue haired girl over there. I think it’s so fun that she has blue hair. Very unique.”

    Manager: “We think it’s awesome. Have a good day!” *turns to next customer* “Hello! Who helped you out today?”

    Customer #2: *points to me* “That heathen with the blue devil hair and no makeup on.”

    Manager: “That’ll be $34.50. You have a nice day.”

    Customer #2: *yells across store* “Thank you for the help, heathen!”

    Every worker in the store: “YOU’RE WELCOME!”

    Mirror, Mirror On The Wall And Not For Sale

    , | St. Paul, MN, USA |

    (I work in a second hand clothing store. The store has racks of clothes and a couple full length mirrors. A man walks in.)

    Customer: “Where are your mirrors for sale?”

    Me: “Um, we don’t sell mirrors.”

    Customer: “What do you sell?”

    Me: “Clothing. We’re a clothing store.”

    Customer: “What kind of a place is this?!” *storms out*

    The Mindreader’s Burden

    | Elizabeth, NJ, USA |

    (I am helping a man and his 9 year old daughter.)

    Customer: “So, how long do I have to return this?”

    Me: “You have 45 days sir. The date is on the bottom of the receipt. Here, it says October 19th is the last day for returns. Today is September 4th.”

    Customer: “October 19th? So I only have a week to return this?”

    Me: “Um–”

    Daughter: “Dad, stop thinking out loud. You’re embarrassing yourself.”

    Non Sequitur

    | Philadelphia, PA, USA | Extra Stupid

    Customer: “Where is the escalator?”

    Me: “Go down this aisle and turn left. It’ll be right there.

    Customer: “Where?”

    Me: “Down this aisle, to the left.”

    Customer: “Where?”

    Me: “Let me show you.”

    (I walk her over to about five feet from the escalator and point at it.)

    Me: “It’s right here, ma’am.”

    Customer: “Where is the escalator?”

    (I move to stand almost on it.)

    Me: “Right here.”

    Customer: “This is the escalator?”

    Me: “Yes”

    Customer: “Oh, thank you! You are so pretty.”
