    America’s Debt Crisis Explained, Part 2

    | Illinois, USA |

    Customer: “Um, this sign out here says $5.98 for a pound of turkey.”

    Me: “Well, sir, if you look at your sticker, you’ll see that it is actually $3.98 a pound this week.”

    Customer: “But, it says that it’s $5.98 a pound. You need to fix this, and you need to fix the price on my turkey.”

    Me: “Sir, the turkey is on sale this week. You got it for $3.98 a pound, instead of $5.98.”

    Customer: “Well, this is just ridiculous. You guys need to get your act straight, and you need to fix my sticker!”

    Me: “You’re getting it for cheaper.”

    Customer: *light bulb goes on* “Ohhhhhhh!”

    Finger Lickin’ Good Parenting

    , | Windsor, CA, USA |

    (A man walks up to our hot case with his wife and two little girls.)

    Me: “Hi! How may I help you?”

    Customer: “Hi – we wanted to get some chicken strips.”

    (As I am taking his order, I notice his daughters licking the hot case glass.)

    Me: “Excuse me sir, but your daughters are licking the glass.”

    Customer: “Yeah.”

    Me: “Well…aside from the fact that the glass is hot, we cleaned it this morning with a chemical cleaner to wash off a layer of grease build-up.”

    Customer: “So?”

    Me: “The chemical we used is a known carcinogen. I might suggest that you stop your daughters from ingesting it.”

    Customer: “Look, lady. You’ve obviously never been a parent. When you have kids, you’ll learn that it’s MUCH easier to just let your kids do whatever they want.”

    I’ll Have The Bacteria, Lettuce And Tomato

    | Indiana, USA |

    (I work in the deli of a very small grocery store. My co-worker had just walked out of the deli, leaving me in the back alone.)

    Cashier: “Deli, you have a customer!”

    Me: “I’m sorry sir, I didn’t see you there. I was just washing my hands. Can I get you something?”

    Customer: “I’ve been waiting here for TEN MINUTES.”

    (I know for a fact that he couldn’t have been there for more than a
    minute, because my co-worker had just walked out.)

    Me: “I’m sorry, sir. Like I said, I didn’t know you were out here. I was in the back, washing my hands and I can’t see you back there.”

    Customer: “Well, YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN OUT HERE. What were you doing in
    the back? Your job is to wait on customers!”

    Me: “I WAS WASHING MY HANDS.”

    Customer: “I don’t see why you should have to do that.”

    Me: “Me neither, sir.”
