  • Even Customers Fall Short

    , | Kansas City, Missouri, USA | Family & Kids, Underaged

    (I am in a local dollar store/pharmacy. This happened to me when I as ten years old. An elderly looking woman comes up.)

    Customer: “Do you work here?”

    Me: “Me?”

    Customer: “Yes, you.”

    Me: “Ma’am, I’m still in grade school.”

    Customer: *mumbling while walking away* “Lazy employees. Always coming up with excuses!”

    Customer: “Excuse me, can you tell me how this converter works?”

    Me: “Let me see. It looks like you put your old photo negatives into it and it converts them to digital images.”

    Customer: “So, it doesn’t make them Christians?”

    Me: “Uh…what? Who?”

    Customer: “It says it’s a “converter”. So, does it make the people in the pictures turn from devil worshippers into Christians?”

    Me: *stunned* “No…No, it doesn’t do anything like that. It takes old negative strips from film cameras and converts them into digital images.”

    Customer: “So, it won’t make them Christian?”

    Me: “Nope.”

    Customer: “What a useless piece of crap that is, then!”

    Who Needs Learnin’ When You Can Be Sun Burnin’

    | Canton, MI, USA | Family & Kids

    (A coworker and I are cleaning up the magazines. A father and his two kids are walking by.)

    Father: *to his son* “I just can’t believe you’re wasting your time looking at books when it’s such a nice day outside!”

    Breaking Peter To Fix Paul

    | Eden Prairie, MN, USA | Wild & Unruly

    (I work as a cashier at an electronics retailer. A customer walks up with a computer lapdesk that opens up so it can store small items. Normally, two clips hold these shut.)

    Customer: “Excuse me, one of the two clips is broken off.”

    Me: “Oh geez, I’m sorry! Do you wanna grab another one that’s not defective?”

    Customer: “Sure…” *leaves the broken lapdesk with me*

    (I give the broken one to a fellow cashier so they can take it back to the service desk and defect it out. Several minutes later, the customer returns.)

    Customer: *holding a new lapdesk* “Hey! Where’s the other lapdesk?”

    Me: “Oh, I gave it to customer service because it was defective. We can ring this up now—”

    Customer: “But I need the first one!

    Me: “Wait…why?”

    Customer: *holds up a lapdesk clip* “I broke one off the new one to put on the old one!”

    The Great State Of Confusion, Part 6

    | New Jersey, USA | Geography, History

    (My university has a very long winter break which allows me to work over the holidays. I am working the Christmas season when a customer begins to make small talk.)

    Customer: “What high school do you go to, sweetheart?”

    Me: “I am actually in college and am just working seasonal.”

    Customer: “Oh! Where do you go?”

    Me: “The University of Delaware.”

    Customer: “What state is that in?”

    Me: “Delaware.”

    Customer: “Yes, honey, I heard you but what state is that in?”

    Me: “The state is Delaware.”

    Customer: “When did Delaware become a state?”

    Me: “It was the first state in 1776.”

    Customer: *stays quiet for the rest of the transaction*
