November Theme Of The Month: Black Friday!

It’s Going To Be A Long Year…

| MD, USA | Bizarre

(A customer comes up to me with a calendar. There is no cover. It’s just wrapped in plastic and the front of it is the first month, January 2016.)

Customer: “Is this calendar for 2016?”

Me: “Yes.”

Customer: “But it has, like, the whole year?”

Me: “Yeah, it does.”

Customer: “It’s not just for January?”

Me: “No, it has all of 2016 in it.”

(Satisfied, the customer puts it back and leaves.)

The Times, They Are a’Changin’

| MD, USA | At The Checkout, Bizarre, Money

Me: “Your total is $4.24.”

Customer: *hands me a twenty*

Me: “Here’s your change.” *hands back $15.76* “Have a wonderful day!”

Customer: “… Didn’t I give you a five?”

Me: “I don’t think so…”

(Customer checks her pocket and pulls out the five she meant to give me.)

Me: “Doesn’t this usually happen the other way around?”

Can’t Put A Dollar On Stupidity

| IN, USA | Extra Stupid

(I work at a dollar store. Since everything is a dollar there are no price tags on anything.)

Customer: “There’s no price tag on this. It’s free, right?”

Her Learning Doesn’t Hold Much Coin

| MD, USA | At The Checkout, Money, Tourists/Travel

Me: “Your total is $10.60.”

Customer: *with an accent that sounds like she’s from around Manchester, England* “Okay, here’s a ten, and…” *pours her change on the counter and starts going through them* “…Is this twenty-five? No, this is five… and this is ten? No, this one’s twenty-five cents… How much is this one? Oh, I’m not good with this money. I can’t tell what anything is.”

Me: “No problem. I’ll count out sixty for you. So, are vacationing here in the USA?”

Customer: “No, I’ve lived here for ten years…”

Wasn’t So Chipper About Leaving

| OH, USA | Criminal/Illegal, Food & Drink

(I work as a sales associate at a store where vendors control some of our shelf layouts. One day a man working for the chip company comes in.)

Me:“Hello, sir, do you need my manager?”

Vendor #1: “No, I just came to reset your shelves. We just changed the layout.”

(I don’t think anything of it and go back to work while the guy moved product around on the shelf. He left after about an hour. The next day another guy from the company comes in and begins stocking the shelves. After a while he calls out to me.)

Vendor #2: “How come your chip aisle is so messed up?”

Me: *confused* “One of your guys reset it.”

Vendor #2: “This isn’t how they’re supposed look and I’m the only guy who works this area.”

(The vendor reset the shelves and we later found out that an ex-employee kept his uniform and pretended to work at the company to steal chips.)
