    Concentrate Harder

    | CT, USA | Uncategorized

    (I am at a sample station of apple cider.)

    Customer: “Oh, apple cider!”

    Me: “Yes, ma’am. Would you like to try some?”

    (At this point the customer picks up the bottle.)

    Customer: “Oh, it’s not from concentrate. That means I can try some! I’m allergic to apples, you know.”

    Taking His Sweet Time

    | LaGrange, GA, USA | Uncategorized

    (A mother is shopping with her 5 year old son is lagging behind.)

    Mother: “C’mon! We’re in a hurry!”

    Son: “Mama, I was looking at the chocolate pudding. You know, you’re not supposed to bother me while I’m looking at the chocolate pudding.”

    Weeding Out The Truth

    , | MS, USA | Uncategorized

    (The cigar shop sells hookahs and tobacco for it. It’s called sheesha.)

    Me: “Can I help you?”

    Customer: “Yes. I’m looking for hookah tobacco. It’s called…uh…ganja?”

    Me: “This is the only hookah tobacco we sell.”

    Customer: “Thank you!”

    (As I am ringing him out, it suddenly occurs to him what he had asked for.)

    Customer: “Oh my God! Did I just ask you for weed?”

    Customers Cause A Pounding Headache

    | Bensalem, PA, USA | Uncategorized

    Customer: “I’d like a pound of Tilapia, please.”

    Me: “No problem.”

    (I put 3 pieces on the scale, and the weight comes to 1.02 pounds.)

    Me: “Is that good?”

    Customer: *sighs, then sounding utterly dejected* “Good enough.”

    Parking Up The Wrong Tree

    | OH, USA | Uncategorized

    (A customer walks in to the Service Desk.)

    Customer: “This is ridiculous!”

    Me: “Is there something that I can help you with?”

    Customer: “That car in your parking lot has been sitting there for over a week and has not been moved! Shouldn’t you guys do something about that? I live across the street and I am absolutely sick of looking at it!”

    Me: “Well, ma’am, it is broken down and we have informed the Sheriff’s department about it. It will be towed if they cannot contact the owner.”

    Customer: “Well, that is absolutely the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard! Cars that have nothing to do with the store should not be parked here! I am so angry! Where are my dinner guests going to park now?!”
