October Theme Of The Month: Halloween!

On Sale: Humble Pie

| Nova Scotia, Canada | Uncategorized

Me: “Hello, how are you today? I see you have picked out a lot of our sale items today.”

Customer: “Yes I did! I think these sales are great!”

(I smile as I continue ringing in her items.)

Customer: “Um, this cereal is $1.99, not $2.99.”

Me: “It says right here that this cereal is $2.99. You must just be mistaken with another brand. It can get pretty confusing sometimes.”

Customer: “No, that cereal is $1.99! You’re wrong! I know it is, I saw it like that on the shelf!”

Me: “My apologies, the sign must be for another product. I will call someone to go check–”

Customer: “No! The sign said that this cereal is 1.99! I will go and get it myself for you then!”

Me: “It’s alright, I can just get one of our employees to go and check that for you, there is no need–”


(The customer storms away, leaving me at the speedy checkout with a line of 10 people. She soon returns looking flustered.)

Customer: “Debit, please.”

Stupidity Is Its Own Reward

| Bethesda, MD, USA | Uncategorized

Me: “Do you have your rewards card with you, sir?”

Customer: “Uh, no, I don’t. Do I not get a discount?”

Me: “Of course you still can! What’s your phone number?”

Customer: “How old are you?”

Me: “Seventeen.”

Customer: “You’re not even legal! I can’t do that.”

Me: “Uh, no, sir. I need it to look up for your discount.”

Customer: “Oh…” *tells me his phone number* “…but don’t call me after 5. That’s when my wife gets home.”

Even Rabbits Go Through Bad Patches

| Seattle, WA, USA | Uncategorized

Customer: “Where can I find your carrot tops?”

Me: “We don’t sell carrot tops, but you can buy the whole carrot.”

Customer: “But I need to feed my rabbit her carrot tops!”

Me: “If people buy carrots would you like me to ask them if they’d like their carrot tops cut off and I can save them for you?”

Customer: “Oh that’d be lovely! I’ll come back next week after her therapy session. Her therapist thinks she has an anxiety disorder.”

Not To La-boar The Point

| California, USA | Uncategorized

Me: “Hello, welcome to [store]. What would you like, sir?”

Customer: “Actually, I have a question. What is ham made of?”

Me: “It’s made of pigs.”

Customer: “Pigs? What are pigs made of?”

Me: “Pigs, the animal.”

Customer: *confused look*

Me: “Oink oink.”

Customer: “Oh! Does that mean it’s not vegan?”

Cashier Almighty

| Southlake, TX, USA | Uncategorized

Customer: “Where’s your peanut butter?”

Me: “Aisle 5, just past the bread.”

Customer: “Thanks, man…”

(20 minutes later, I’m also called up to work as a cashier. The customer comes through my line.)

Me: “Did you find it alright?”

Customer: “Weren’t you just over in like… five places?”

Me: “About there, yeah.”

Customer: “Are you God?!”
