Weekend Roundup: Caught Red-Handed

, , , , | Not Always Right | Roundups

Caught Red-Handed! There’s nothing quite as sheisty as customer trying to pull a fast one—and nothing quite as satisfying as catching one red-handed!

  1. Caught Red-Handed:
    A sneaky customer gets called out by another customer—who just happens to be an employee!
  2. Piercing Observation:
    Underaged customers FAIL, basic biology WIN.
  3. Caught Brown Handed:
    Proof that some trails of evidence are self-evident, salty and sticky!
  4. Tripped Up:
    If customers are gonna cry child abuse, they’d better “step” up their game!
  5. A Squeaky Clean Record:
    An employee takes it easy on a young (and very squeaky) scammer.

Show But Don’t Tell

| North Canton, OH, USA | Rude & Risque

(A female customer, approximately 18 years old, is asking a coworker of mine about our bikinis.)

Customer: “Do you guys, like, carry any bikini bottoms in white?”

Me: “I don’t think we have any. Not a lot of stores stock white bikinis.” *chuckling* “After all, you can see right through white fabric when it gets wet!”

Customer: *completely serious* “Yeah, duh. That’s why I want them!”

Waste Not, Bag Not

| Ontario, Canada |

(In Canada, we charge five cents for each plastic bag used, which goes to environmental fees or charities. Every store except Walmart has charged for bags for 3-4 years now.)

Customer: “You guys charge for bags?! You’re kidding me!”

Me: “Yup, we do.”

Customer: “It’s ridiculous!”

Customer’s Daughter: “But mom, we’re not going to need bags anyway.”

Customer: “I know, but it’s just so greedy! I’m not going to shop at all these stores anymore if you guys keep charging for bags!”

Necessity Is The Daughter Of Incomprehension

| Orlando, FL, USA | Family & Kids

(A mom and daughter come up to my checkout. As I ring up the items, the mom notices the novelty pens by the register.)

Customer: “How cute! Do you want one, honey?”

Customer’s Daughter: “I don’t need one.”

Customer: “That’s not what I asked. Do you want one? How often does your mom say that?”

Customer’s Daughter: “I don’t need one.”

Customer: “Look, they light up! Which color do you want?”

Customer’s Daughter: “Doesn’t matter. I don’t need a pen.”

Customer: “Choose a color or I’ll choose for you!”

Customer’s Daughter: “Mom, you’re wasting money!”

Customer: *to me* “We’ll take the blue one.”

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!”
