    Welcome To Retail, Part 3

    , | Richmond, VA, USA |

    (I am watering the plants in the nursery, about two hours before closing time, and see a customer down the aisle.)

    Me: “Can I help you find anything, sir? ”

    Customer: “Uh… uh… ”

    (I then notice that he’s peeing on some of our boxwoods.)

    Me: “What–”

    Customer: “I AM THE TERROR THAT FLAPS IN THE NIGHT!” ¬†*zips up and runs out*

    Coworker: “Did that guy just quote Darkwing Duck at you?!”

    Me: *drops watering hose* “I’m taking a break.”

    There’s Always Time To B**** And Moan

    | Port Charlotte, FL, USA |

    Customer: “This phone doesn’t hang on the wall right. The handle keeps falling off.”

    (Knowing exactly what’s wrong, I fix the phone on the spot. It’s a simple fix.)

    Customer: “How did you do that?”

    Me: “I turned this little tab around so the handle catches on it.”

    Customer: “How did you know that?”

    Me: “Didn’t the instructions tell you how?”

    Customer: *snorts* “I don’t have time to read the instructions!”

    You Be Difficult, I’ll Be Ditzy

    , | Oklahoma City, OK, USA |

    Me: “It’s a great day at [furniture store]! How can I direct your call?”

    Caller: “I want to talk to someone about my furniture.”

    Me: “Okay, is it just damaged, or did you want to set up a delivery?”

    Caller: “No. I just want to talk to someone about it.”

    Me: “Um… did you want to talk to your salesperson?”

    Caller: “No. Just someone in the dining department.”

    Me: “I’m sorry ma’am, but our floor isn’t separated into departments.”

    Caller: “I bought it about 2 years ago. I just want to talk about it.”

    Me: “Did you want to talk about it with a manager?”

    Caller: “No.”

    Me: *stops caring* “Well, I would LOVE to talk about with you! Is it pretty?!”

    Caller: “What?”

    Me: “Furniture is good! It’s where people sit!”

    Caller: *click*

    Two Letters And A Hundred Stitches

    , | Philadelphia, PA, USA |

    (After helping a middle aged man find many CDs…)

    Customer: “Thank you… what’s your name?”

    Me: “Ryland.”

    Customer: “Thank you for your help, Ryan!”

    Me: “No, no. My name is Ryland.”

    Customer: “Ryland? What the h*** kind of name is that? You better watch out, you’re going to get attacked one day!”
