    Don’t Earn Enough Dough To Deal With This Dough

    | VA, USA | Bad Behavior, Family & Kids

    (I work in a grocery store, and overall I love it! But I’ve watched the same mother do this multiple times. She has a kid who is almost a teenager, and always walks by the pizza dough, then plays with it like it is a basketball. She picks it up throwing it around, and spins it. She looked at her kid, and then me.)

    Mother: “Oh, kids, I’m glad we are giving you something to do since you are getting paid.” *walks away*

    He’ll Be Führer-ious

    | MI, USA | Funny Names, History

    (I’ve recently started my first job as a cashier at a small town’s grocery store. A large, seemingly drunk man has approached my register at night.)

    Customer: “Hey! Where’s Hitler?”

    Me: “Uhm… what?”

    Customer: “You heard me! Where is Hitler?”

    Me: *thinking this is a joke of some sort* “He’s, well, dead.”

    Customer: “What? No! Not that Hitler! I mean your boss!”

    Bad Behavior Is A Vicious Cycle

    | Danbury, CT, USA | Bad Behavior, Family & Kids

    (I’m working in the produce section of my store, which is where the main entrance is. A girl, who is about nine years old, rolls into the store riding her bicycle)

    Me: “Sorry, you can’t ride your bike through the store.”

    Girl: “Why not?”

    Me: “Because it’s dangerous. You might run into someone.”

    Girl: “So what?”

    Me: “I’m very sorry, but the bike has to go outside.”

    Girl: “You can go to Hell!”

    Girl’s Mom: “Haha, kids are funny, right?”

    Me: “…”

    (They took the bike outside after, then came back in and stared me down while shopping.)

    We Are Sorry For The Good Service

    | Prince Albert, SK, Canada | At The Checkout, Crazy Requests

    (I work as a cashier. During every order I ask the customers coming through my lane if they want the deal of the week, which can be anything from chocolates to toothbrushes to potted plants, and if we forget to ask then the customer gets the item for free. I greet my customer, with a hello, ask how many bags they would like, and offer the deal of the week. The order goes through with no problem and they pay.)

    Me: “Here is your receipt, sir. You have yourself a wonderful evening.”

    Customer: *kind of pissed* “Well, it’s not going to be so nice now!”

    Me: “Oh, I’m sorry, sir. What happened?”

    Customer: “You asked me if I wanted the deal of the week, and now I can’t have it for free!”

    Me: *kind of speechless* “I’m sorry?”

    Customer: *angrily* “Well, you should be. Why can’t you be like those other cashiers who never ask?!”

    (The customer left not long afterwards with no fuss, but still a little angry at me for not letting them have a free item. It’s still one of the only times where I’ve had a customer mad at me for doing my job correctly and wanting me to be worse at it!)

    Don’t Have Baggage About Types Of Baggage

    | Lawrence, KS, USA | At The Checkout, Awesome Customers, Awesome Workers

    (I am standing in line at the grocery store. The cashier asks the customer in front:)

    Cashier: “Do you want paper or plastic?”

    Customer: “It doesn’t matter, I’m biSACKtual.”

    (After he left, the cashier turned to the bagger:)

    Cashier: “It’s a good thing the other guy wasn’t here today; he’s hydrophobic.”
