    You’d Better Belieber It

    | Muncie, IN, USA |

    (I work as a picture framer in a well known craft store. Around my second week of work, a tall, tough-looking guy walks up to my counter and this occurs.)

    Tough Guy: “Hi, uh, do you sell poster frames?”

    Me: “Absolutely! What size do you need?”

    Tough Guy: “Poster size?”

    Me: “Well, we carry several poster frames, ranging from 16″x20″ to 24″x36″. Do you know approximately how big your poster is?”

    Tough Guy: “I dunno… Justin Bieber size?”

    No Servitude For Attitude

    | New York, USA |

    (I am working at the cutting table at a fabric store when a woman charges up to the table, bypassing others waiting in line.)

    Customer: “You need to cut this fabric for me right now!”

    Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am, but there is a line and I am helping other customers.”

    Customer: “How dare you talk back to me! You are here to serve me. You work for me! You are my servant and you need to listen to what I say!”

    Me: “With all due respect, ma’am, I work for [craft store], not you. Now, please wait in line and I will help you when your turn comes.”

    (The woman proceeds to throw her fabric on my head and knock down three display bolts. My manager calls the police and she is escorted out of the store, still ranting.)

    Customer: *while being escorted out by the police* “You’re all my servants!”

    Team Cougar

    | Michigan, USA | At The Checkout

    (I am working at the checkout when a mother in her 60s and daughter in her 40s walk up to checkout. There is a rack of magazines next to my register, including one with pictures from the upcoming Twilight movie.)

    Daughter: “That Taylor Lautner is hot! Don’t you think so?”

    Mother: “Oh, yeah, he’s much hotter than that Rob Pattinson guy.”

    (I must have given them weird looks because the daughter now looks at me and begins to speak loudly and defensively.)

    Daughter, to me: “What?! He’s legal!”

    Similar Tool, Different Outcome

    | Minneapolis, MN, USA | Rude & Risque

    (I am working at an Arts and Crafts store. I am talking to a coworker when I see an older woman come up to the counter.)

    Me: “Hi, can I help you find something?”

    Customer: “Yes, do you have anything I can use to shave balls? ”

    (There is an awkward silence between the customer and I while I process what she is asking her. Finally, she chimes in, elaborating.)

    Customer: “Off of sweaters?”

    (I realize that she is talking about a device to remove sweater pills, the little fuzzy dots that sometimes appear after washing.)

    Me: “Oh! This way please.”

    (I take her over to the yarn section and help her find what she is looking for. I walk back over to my coworker.)

    Me: “Is it just me or did it sound like she was asking for–”

    Coworker: “Yeah, it definitely did!”

    Baaaad Hearing And Maaaad Rearing

    | Texas, USA |

    (A customer and her daughter walk up to me while I’m putting up items on a shelf. Her daughter looks about 7 years old. I am well known for doing very well with young children around her age.)

    Customer: “Could you help me find something my child needs for a project she’s doing?”

    Me: “Sure!”

    (I turn toward the customer’s daughter, who is holding a piece of her project.)

    Me: “Whatcha’ got there, kiddo?”

    Customer: “Don’t call my child a goat!”

    Me: “Beg your pardon?”

    Customer: “You heard me! You called my daughter a kid, which is a goat! My child is not an animal!” *storms out with daughter in tow*
