    For Some, Childhood Never Ends, Part 3

    | Copaigue, NY, USA | Wild & Unruly

    (I am bringing shopping carts back into my workplace when I see a grown man, in a business suit, running with his cart to pick up speed and then riding on the back of it. As I keep walking towards the building, I walk past a woman.)

    Woman: *disgusted* “I don’t know him.”

    Me: “It’s okay. Boys will be boys!”

    Caution: Wet Weather May Be Wet

    | Avondale, AZ, USA | Extra Stupid

    (I work as a cashier at a well-known arts and crafts store. This particular day, it is raining very heavily, which is rare in Arizona.)

    Customer: *walking over to myself and other cashier* “Excuse me, it is wet outside. I almost slipped.”

    Me: “Sorry about that, ma’am. Are you okay?”

    Customer: “Yes, but you need to put a wet floor sign outside so people are aware that it is wet.”

    Coworker: “It’s raining, ma’am. I think people know the ground will be wet.”

    Customer: “No, they won’t! Because I didn’t!” *storms out the store*

    Function Begets Purpose

    | Copaigue, NY, USA | Extra Stupid

    (I am ringing up a couple of younger woman when one shows me an item.)

    Customer: “Excuse me?”

    Me: “Yes?”

    Customer: “Do you know if this blends?” *holds up blender*

    The Answer To Life, The Universe, And Everything

    | Arizona, USA | Bizarre, Geeks Rule

    (We greet customers as they come in and answer questions they may have. A man comes in with his wife and comes over to me.)

    Me: “Did you have a question, sir?”

    Customer: “So what have you heard about woodchucks?”

    (I’m completely confused, so I try to just play along.)

    Me: “I hear they chuck wood.”

    (The customer begins to scowl at me, actually looking offended and disgusted with my answer. He then asks me a few questions about some of our products before heading off to shop.)

    Customer: *cryptically* “And you keep thinking about those woodchucks…”

    (He returns later and I am the cashier to take care of him. He brings up the woodchuck thing again as he’s about to leave.)

    Customer: “I’ve only had one person, this old man—a veteran—answer me correctly. He told me…42.”

    Granny Warbucks

    | Millbury, MA, USA |

    (I work in the girl’s department of the store where we have many items of clothing with peace signs on them. I’m putting some clothes away when an elderly lady comes up behind me.)

    Customer: “There are a lot of peace signs.”

    Me: “Yeah, I guess they’re popular.”

    Customer: “Not with me!”
