    Self-Serve Sashimi

    | Philadelphia, PA, USA | Bizarre, Food & Drink

    (I work at a co-op food store and it’s not uncommon for people to eat an apple or something while they shop and pay for it at the register. A woman comes to the check out line and I notice an empty raw fish package.)

    Customer: *trying to be discrete* “Oh…um…I’m also paying for this.”

    (She holds up the empty raw fish package.)

    Me: “Uh, excuse me, did…did you eat that?”

    Customer: “Keep it down! I don’t want the entire store to know!”

    Red Grapes Or Wrath

    | Toronto, Canada | At The Checkout, Food & Drink

    (It is 9:30 pm on a Friday night. Note that the store closes at 10 pm.)

    Customer: “Hi, do you have any more red grapes? These ones look pretty rough.”

    Me: “No, sorry sir, but we’re all sold out of grapes.”

    Customer: “Oh, really? I think you’re lying. Get me some more grapes from the back.”

    Me: “Sir, I can assure you that if there were any more grapes, I’d have displayed them already.”

    Customer: “Bull! You just don’t want to bring me any so you can go home early!”

    Me: “No, we just don’t have any left. Our shipment comes in at 9:30 am tomorrow.”

    Customer: “What? No, it doesn’t. There aren’t any delivery trucks here at 9:30!”

    Me: “Sir, I’m not lying to you, so I’d appreciate if you stopped accusing me of doing so.”

    Customer: “Let me talk to your manager! I bet he has some grapes in the back!”

    Me: “Look, sir. My manager has gone home for the night. I am certain that there is no secret back room that only he has access too.”

    Customer: “Well, fine! This is the last time I shop here!”

    (He reluctantly buys a bag of green grapes instead and walks away.)

    The Grapes Or Wrath

    An Idiom In Sheep’s Clothing

    | Iowa, USA | At The Checkout

    (I am a running through a rather elderly lady’s groceries.)

    Me: “Did you find everything all right today, ma’am?”

    Customer: “Yes, I did. Well…”

    Me: “Anything I can help you with?”

    Customer: “Your shirt is nice; such a lovely material. I will add that to my purchase, please.”

    Me: “Oh. Well, actually, I purchased this at [clothing store].”

    Customer: “Yes, I’ll take your shirt please.”

    Me: “Um, ma’am, I’m afraid I am unable to give you my shirt.”

    Customer: “No, I’m the customer. You asked if I needed anything. I need your shirt!”

    (At this point, she attempts to pull it off of me. Upon seeing a fleet of coworkers heading towards me, she runs out of the store, leaving her groceries behind.)

    Manager: “What did she want?!”

    Me: “Literally the shirt off my back!”

    Crazy For Sushi

    | New Hampshire, USA | At The Checkout

    (I’m bagging a customer’s groceries.)

    Customer: “If my sushi tips over, I’m gonna punch you in the face!”

    Me: “Um, do you want me to put it in a separate bag for you?”

    Customer: “You’d better.”

    In Some Cultures, The Conch Is Blown For Good Luck

    | Winter Park, FL, USA | At The Checkout, Rude & Risque

    (A lady comes through my checkout line with some frozen conch chowder.)

    Me: “I’ve never tried this chowder before. Is it any good?”

    Customer: *loudly* “Oh, yes! I just love cock! That’s how you say it, right? Cock?”

    Me: “Ma’am, I think its pronounced conch…”
