October Theme Of The Month: Halloween!

Highway Robbery

| Australia | Top

(A customer comes to the gas station register and hands me their credit card immediately.)

Customer: “I was looking at the liters display instead of the price.”

Me: “Yeah, I hate when that happens. Let’s see what your total is.”

Customer: “Well, I shouldn’t have to pay anymore than the $20 I wanted to put in.”

Me: “Sorry, but it doesn’t work like that.”

Customer: “That’s bulls***! I’m just going to drive off! Good luck getting your money!” *drives off without paying*

(I call the police who arrive ten minutes later, which is coincidentally when the customer returns–in his haste to drive off, he had forgotten to take back his credit card.)

Customer: “You stole my credit card, you a**hole!”

Me: “Just give me a second sir. I’m in the middle of reporting a drive-off to these police officers.”

Customer: “Haha! So I’m not the only one to do a drive-off from here?”

Police: “Today you are. Please come with us, sir.”

The Financial Crisis Personified

| Minneapolis, MN, USA | Uncategorized

(A lady walks up to my register with a medium coffee.)

Me: “That’ll be $1.17 please.”

Customer: “All right, I’ve just got a few cards here to put that on.”

Me: “…”

Customer: “Take 75 cents off this one.” *hands over card*

Me: “OK…42 cents is the remaining balance.”

Customer: “Next, take 40 cents off this one.” *hands over next card* “…and take the remaining 2 cents off this card.”

Me: “Ma’am, I’ve got two extra pennies for you; I’m not charging two cents…”

Customer: “Oh, well thank you! You know how it goes sometimes with credit cards, I’m sure…”

Me: “No, no I really do not.”

Customer: “Oh, well you really should manage your finances better!” *walks out*

One More Puke On The Path To Recovery

| Syracuse, NY, USA | Uncategorized

(I’m a female working in a gas station and it’s close to midnight. The customer is obviously drunk, which means I can’t sell him alcohol.)

Customer: “You’re the kind of pretty thing I’m not allowed to touch.

(He proceeds to our beer cooler and takes one bottle out of a six-pack.)

Me: “Sir, I can’t sell you that for two reasons. One, you are obviously drunk and store policy says you cant but alcohol. Two, if you were sober it would have to be the whole six-pack or nothing.”

Customer: *stares at me for 30 seconds and then pukes on his coat*

Customer: “Am I sober enough now?”

Have Age, Will Complain

| Alberta, Canada | Uncategorized

(Our local gas station has recently been taken over by new owners. An elderly woman comes in to buy a cup of coffee and takes it to the front to pay.)

Me: “That’ll be a dollar fifty.”

Customer: “What? That’s outrageous! The old owners would never have charged that much!”

Me: “Ma’am, it’s the same price as it was before.”

Customer: “Well… I’m seventy! I have the right to b****!” *storms out*

No Scam Like The Present

| Richmond, VA, USA | Uncategorized

Me: “Good morning, ma’am. How can I help you today?”

Customer: “I would like $10 on pump five.”

Me: “Alright, ma’am. Have a nice day!”

(The customer then gets out and starts walking to her car which is indeed on pump five… and then just drives off without pumping gas. I hold her $10 in case she comes back, and sure enough, she returns about an hour later.)

Customer: *furious* “I can’t pump my gas, you little s***! You stole my money!”

Me: “Ma’am, you left the money on your pump about an hour ago.”

Customer: “I know! You were supposed to hold it for me. What kind of service is this that you won’t do that?”

Me: “Ma’am, I have your money right here and can put it on the pump if you want.”

Customer: “You d***ed better put that money on my pump…all $50 of it!”

Me: “Ma’am, you only gave me $10 for the pump.”

Customer: “I so did not! I gave you $50. I have my receipt right here!”

(The customer hands me a receipt that indeed says $50 dollars–but it’s dated from five months ago.)

Me: “Ma’am, I have your receipt from today and it says $10. The receipt you handed me has a date from five months ago.”

Customer: “You mean those receipts have dates on them?”

Me: “Yes.”

Customer: “Oh…” *runs out, leaving her $10 and never returning again*
