Unleashes A Whole Raft Of Problems

| Atlanta, GA, USA | Money, Uncategorized

(I am a supervisor called to returns for an override.)

Me: “Hello! I understand we’re returning an inflatable raft?”

Customer: “Yes, that’s right. I don’t like this one.”

Me: “Okay, sorry to hear that. Give me just a sec to reverse the transaction. There you go! Anything else?”

Customer: “No, that’s all, I’m going to shop & look for another raft.”

Me: “Oh, I’m sorry but it’s a seasonal item, we no longer carry them.”

Customer: “Oh, alright.”

*comes back about 20 minutes later*

Customer: “Excuse me, since you don’t have any more rafts & I need one, can I buy the one I just returned?”

Me: “Uh, sure!”

Customer: “Well, since it’s used and it’s the last one, can I get a discount?”

(An older gentleman is shopping for his first cell phone.)

Customer: “I need a phone that rings loud. My hearing isn’t so good.”

Me: “Well, this phone has vibrate mode so you can feel it ring.”

Customer: “Vibrate? You mean like a vibrator?”

Me: “Well, I suppose so, yes. But the warranty doesn’t cover liquid damage.”

Me: “Okay, your total is $123.42.”

Customer: “Did you remember to add my discount?”

Me: “What discount?”

Customer: “My five finger discount.”

Me: “Excuse me?”

Customer: “My five finger discount. My son comes in here all the time and says he gets a five finger discount.”

Will Never Get Past The Conceptual Stage

| Melbourne, Australia | Family & Kids, Health & Body, Uncategorized

(A customer comes to my register with prenatal vitamins and a book on conception.)

Customer: "The tablets scanned at $32.50. They’re supposed to be $20!"

Me: "Oh, I’m sorry. I’ll just get someone to check the price. Won’t be a moment."


Me: "No, I’m sorry. $32.50 is the correct price."

Customer: "$32.50 is way too expensive! I don’t want to conceive that much!"

The Customer Has The Right To Be Wrong

| United Kingdom | At The Checkout, Top

(I have finished my shift and am doing my shopping at the self scan checkout, still in uniform.)

Customer: “Excuse me can you help me? The machine’s playing up.”

Me: “I’m sorry, I’ve actually finished. I can’t log on to the system after my shift, but I can call my colleague.”

Customer: “This is ridiculous! If you’ve finished why are you still here at this checkout?”

Me: “I’m shopping sir, like you are.”

Customer: “Why the h*** would you need to shop here?!”

Me: “I still need to eat, sir.”

Customer: “This is insane, what makes you think you have the right to eat?!”
