    Of Objects And Objectivity

    , | London, UK |

    Customer: “Do you sell MP3s?”

    Me: “MP3 players, sir?”

    Customer: “No, no, no. I want to buy MP3s.”

    Me: “You can buy MP3s from our website’s digital store. It’s really easy. However, we don’t sell MP3s in store, I’m afraid.”

    Customer: “So, you don’t sell MP3s in store? Why?”

    Me: “You can’t hold an MP3, sir.”

    You Got The Wrong(est) Audition

    , | California, USA | At The Checkout, Rude & Risque

    (I’m working a register as a odd looking man approaches me.)

    Customer: “Excuse me, sexy, I have a complaint.”

    (I just ignore the “sexy” part and move on.)

    Me: “What’s the problem, sir?”

    Customer: “That’s not your line! Do you want me in this f***ing porno or what?!”

    Me: “Excuse me?!”

    Customer: “You aren’t the girl, are you?”

    Me: “Um…I’m afraid not.”

    Customer: “Oh, okay, then! Have a good day, miss! God bless you!”

    Me: *speechless*

    The Devil’s Logic

    | Pune, India | At The Checkout

    (I am a customer checking out at a famous Indian supermarket. To make things faster, I am putting the stuff from my cart onto the conveyor belt. Among my purchases is a pack of condoms.)

    Customer behind me: “I can’t believe you are buying condoms! Don’t you know that sex is evil? Only the devil does it!”

    (I am kind of taken aback, but I reply with an evil twinkle in my eye.)

    Me: “Well, if sex is only for the devil and I don’t use condoms, then you’ll be seeing the devil’s kid next year!”

    Customer behind me: *crosses himself and stares at me until I leave the store*

    No Returns On The Can Of Worms

    | Syracuse, NY, USA | Pets & Animals

    (I’m standing at the service center chatting with a co-worker when a customer walks up and places a bag on the counter.)

    Customer: “I’d like to return these pants.”

    Me: “Of course! Do you have the receipt?”

    Customer: “Yeah, it’s in the bag.”

    (She opens the bag and little bugs come jumping out of the bag and scuttle around the counter.)

    Customer: “Those aren’t mine! I don’t even have animals! They aren’t
    mine!”

    Me: *speechless*

    The Twilight Of Our Literacy, Part 8

    | Onley, VA, USA |

    (I work in the electronics department of a large retail chain.)

    Customer: “Hello, I was looking to find the new Twilight.”

    Me: “All of our Twilight movies are located over here. I can show you–”

    Customer: “I need to find Breaking Dawn.”

    Me: “Oh, well, our book department is this way–”

    Customer: “No, no, no! I have the book already. I need the movie!”

    Me: “Oh, I’m sorry, but Breaking Dawn doesn’t come out until Friday.”

    Customer: “Oh, okay. I’ll just come back then.”

    Me: “Ma’am, I meant it comes out in theaters on Friday.”

    Customer: “So, you won’t have the DVD by Christmas?”

    Me: “I’m sorry, no.”

    Customer: “That’s just confusing! Why would the book come out before the movie?! It’s so weird!”
