    , | Montreal, Canada |

    Customer: “Excuse me, can you help me choose which suit I should get?”

    Me: “Certainly. This model here was worn by actor Sean Astin.”

    Customer: “Who is that?”

    Me: “He played in The Lord of the Rings. He was one of the hobbits.”

    Customer: “You sell to hobbits!?”

    Me: “Well, he’s not re–”

    Customer: “You shouldn’t sell to hobbits!”

    Beware The Nines Of Merch

    | Victoria, BC, Canada |

    (I’m at the service desk when an elderly man comes up.)

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

    Customer: “No, but you can answer me a question.”

    Me: “Yes?”

    Customer: “Do you have anything for sale that doesn’t end in .99?”

    Me: “Well, we’ve got some 79’s and 49’s, but prices are usually always going to end–”

    Customer: “Are you kidding me?! I know what you’re trying to do with those nines! I know that you’re just trying to convince me it’s cheaper! Do you think I’m stupid or something?!”

    Me: “…”

    Customer: “TAKE THE NINES SERIOUSLY!” *storms out*

    They Grow Up (And Get Incarcerated) So Fast…

    | Medford, OR, USA |

    (An older woman walks up to the electronics desk and addresses me.)

    Customer: “I’d like to buy Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.”

    Me: “Is this a gift for someone?”

    Customer: “Yes, this is for my 4-year-old grandson.”

    Me: “Well, ma’am, just to let you know, this game has been rated ‘M’ for Mature, and has a lot of violence, profanity, drug use, and sexual content.”

    Customer: “That’s okay, he’s already been exposed to all that…”

    Customers Of A Feather Flock Together

    | Gaithersburg, MD, USA |

    (While working at the cutting counter of my fabric store, I caught the tail end of a conversation between two older women.)

    Customer #1: “Well, I feel sorry for America. The majority of people are just so d*** ignorant!”

    Customer #2: “Yes, I completely agree with you…”

    (Customer #1 spots some fabric in our clearance section.)

    Customer #1: “Oooh, it’s SHINY!”

    Urine Way Over Your Head, Part 2

    | San Antonio, TX, USA |

    (I worked for a large electronics chain as a repair tech. An older man came up to the counter with a 42″ TV.)

    Customer: “I need to have this TV replaced. I bought it yesterday and it made a ‘buzz’ sound and won’t turn on anymore.”

    Me: “I’m sorry to hear that. I just need to verify what’s wrong with the TV and then we can look swapping it out for you, if you have your receipt.”

    (I walk over to the TV and notice an odd aroma lingering near it.)

    Me: “Did your TV come into contact with any liquid, sir?”

    Customer: “No…wait–does pee count as liquid?”
