    Placebo Me, Part 2

    | USA | At The Checkout

    Customer: “I need a pack of blue [brand] 100′s please.”

    (I go and get exactly the cigarettes that she requested.)

    Me:“Here you go!”

    Customer: “No, I need the blue ones!”

    Me: “Ma’am, these are blue.” *points to the blue label*

    Customer: “No, I want the shorts.”

    (I return the 100′s for the kings, still blue.)

    Customer: “No! I wanted the BLUE ONE-HUNDREDS! Are you color blind? Do you not know what you’re doing?!”

    (I return the kings and return again with the exact same pack of blue 100′s that I gave her the first time.)

    Customer: “That’s better. You might want to get your hearing checked.”

    Size Matters, Part 3

    | Visalia, CA, USA |

    (I am mopping by our slushie machines when a man approaches me with an empty cup.)

    Customer: *holds up our biggest cup size* “Is this a medium?”

    Me: “No, that’s an extra-large. This one is the medium.” *shows him medium cup*

    Customer: “Oh.”

    (The man pulls out a large, which is clearly larger than the medium.)

    Customer: “So, is this a small?”

    We Call This A Flirting Faux Pas

    , | Shelton, CT, USA |

    (I’m a new employee at a convenience store. I’m French and my accent is quite noticeable. A regular walks in.)

    Me: “Hi, may I help you?”

    Customer: “Oh, a newbie. I like your accent. French?”

    Me: “Yes, sir.”

    Customer: “I had a French girl once. I should have never let her go.”

    Me: “I’m sorry, sir.”

    Customer: “I know one phrase. Je t’aime. Say it.”

    Me: “Okay…Je t’aime.

    Customer: “What does that mean?”

    Me: “It means, ‘I love you.’”

    Regular: *triumphantly* “I made you say that you love me!”

    Me: *speechless*

    You Got The Wrong(est) Audition

    , | California, USA | At The Checkout, Rude & Risque

    (I’m working a register as a odd looking man approaches me.)

    Customer: “Excuse me, sexy, I have a complaint.”

    (I just ignore the “sexy” part and move on.)

    Me: “What’s the problem, sir?”

    Customer: “That’s not your line! Do you want me in this f***ing porno or what?!”

    Me: “Excuse me?!”

    Customer: “You aren’t the girl, are you?”

    Me: “Um…I’m afraid not.”

    Customer: “Oh, okay, then! Have a good day, miss! God bless you!”

    Me: *speechless*

    Natural Selection, Hard At Work

    | Baltimore, MD, USA | Extra Stupid, Food & Drink

    (A customer comes with an old toolbox.)

    Customer: “Hey, look what I found just outside…”

    (The customer opens the metal toolbox filled with mushrooms.)

    Customer: “I doubt they’re the kind that make you high.”

    Me: “Um, I wouldn’t eat those. I think they’re destroying angel mushrooms, which are deadly poisonous.”

    Customer: “If they are, then I’ll probably eat them!” *leaves the store and never returns*
