November Theme Of The Month: Black Friday!

Goldilocks Is Better Off With The Bears

| Toronto, Canada | Top

(Note: We sell a mosquito tent for babies that is very compact and light.)

Customer: “Hi, I have a question about your baby tent?”

Me: “Sure, what would you like to know?”

Customer: “Can the tent withstand a bear attack?”

Me: “Excuse me?”

Customer: “Well, let’s say we go camping and my husband and I are sun tanning on the other side of the lake. If a bear comes into the campsite, will the tent protect my child?”

Me: “I’m sorry, I’m confused. Who is in the campsite with your baby while you are on the other side of the lake?”

Customer: “Nobody. Why?”

(Note: My coworker is my friend, and we usually pick on each other in good fun.)

Me, to coworker: “Your shirt is all wrinkled! Maybe you should show up to work looking decent!”

Mistakenly overhearing customer: “Well, maybe you should shove it!”

Stranger In A Sweet Land

| FL, USA | Top

Me: “Hello, can I help you find anything today?”

Customer: “I’m looking for this movie. It was a funny movie and it is fairly new.”

Me: “Okay, can you tell me who is in it?”

Customer: “That fat guy from Superbad?”

Me: “Is it this movie?” *I pick up ‘Get him to the Greek’*

Customer: “Yeah! Thanks! Have a piece of candy.”

Me: “Okay.”

(I put the candy in my pocket, and walk to the counter to ring him up.)

Me: “Have a nice day!”

Customer: “You have a nice smile. You know what you win?”

Me: “No. What do I win?”

Customer: “A better piece of candy!”

(He hands me another piece of candy and walks out swinging his bag.)

Manager, to me: “Don’t eat that candy. It’s stranger candy.”

(Opposite Se)X-Men

| Cincinnati, OH, USA | Top

(A little boy comes through my line holding a Wolverine figure. I scan it first and give it back to him before his parents groceries.)

Me: “So is Wolverine your favorite?”

Boy: *looks at me confused*

Me: “More then Beast or Nightcrawler?”

Boy: *tilts his head, more puzzled*

Me: “Rogue’s always been my favorite.”

Boy: “Bu-But, you’re old. And a girl!”

Customer: “Africa is a continent?”
