    Ed Begley Jr. Starts To Cut Back

    | Brookfield, WI, USA |

    Me: “Would you like paper or plastic?”

    Customer: “Oh, I’d like one of those nice canvas bags, please.”

    Me: “Excuse me?”

    Customer: “You know, one of those reusable canvas bags. Like the ones that she’s got!” *points to the next customer in line*

    Me: “Uh, well, we don’t have those here, unfortunately. All we’ve got is paper or plastic. If you want a canvas bag, you’d have to buy one and bring it yourself.”

    Customer: “What a load of crap! Why should I want to save the environment if I have to pay to do it?!”

    This Is Why We Have Self-Checkout Lanes

    | Portage, MI, USA |

    Customer: “Put that bread in the bag.”

    Coworker: “I don’t want to break it…

    (The grocery bags are already very full.)

    Customer: “No, it’s CRUSTY!”

    (The customer rushes over, grabs it, and STUFFS it into the bag, totally crushing it.)

    Customer: “See? It didn’t break! Can you make the bags more even?”

    (My coworker takes out some of the groceries and evenly weights the bags.)

    Customer: “No, make them more evenly weighted!”

    Coworker: “I just did…”

    Customer: “NO, NOW IT’S NOT FAIR TO ALL OF THE OTHER BAGS!”

    (The customer grabs her bags and literally runs out of store.)

    Is That A Pinot Noir In Your Pocket…

    | Brookfield, WI, USA |

    (I work as a bagger at the local grocery store. An old man walks through the checkout lane with spandex pants on and what appears to be a wine bottle stuffed down.)

    Cashier: “Sir, there is no way in h*** that you are THAT well-endowed. Get your butt back here!”

    Customer Service Saves Another Life

    | Florida, USA |

    Customer: “How many pine nuts are in your ‘Lemon Orzo with Pine Nuts’?”

    Me: “A good amount, why?”

    Customer: “Because my husband is allergic, and I was just wondering how much I’d be able to give to him.”

    Me: “Well, ma’am, do you like your husband?”

    Customer: “Yes, why?”

    Me: “Because it could very well kill him.”

    Customer: “…”

    Me: *nodding*

    Customer: “Oh…”

    I’m Afraid You Can’t Spell, Dave

    | Los Angeles, CA, USA |

    (I was monitoring the customers at the self-checkout machines when a customer holding a cilantro angrily waved me over.)

    Me: “Sir, what seems to be the problem?”

    Customer: “These machines are so useless! They don’t even have cilantro under the look-up list!”

    Me: “Sir, it’s because you’re looking under ‘S’ instead of ‘C’ – cilantro is spelled with a ‘C’.”

    Customer: “Oh, so you’re a know-it-all, huh? We’ll see what you know when these machines take over YOUR job one day!”

    Me: “…”
