    Uncouth Bluetooth

    | Lexington, KY, USA | Uncategorized

    (A cellphone customer walks up to my counter with a suspicious look on her face.)

    Customer: “Listen…you’ve got to help me! It’s my neighbors, they’re spying on me!”

    Me: “I’ll be glad to assist you in any way I can, ma’am. Is this related to your cell phone in some way…?”

    Customer: “Yes! They’re spying on me in my shower, with… bluetooths! And the camera on my phone!”

    (I glance at her phone, noting that it is neither bluetooth-capable or a camera phone.)

    Me: “Well, your phone lacks both of those capabilities, so I don’t think you need to worry.”

    Customer: “BUT THEY ARE! THEY STOLE THE PICTURES FROM MY PHONE AND PUT THEM ON THE INTERNET!”

    Me: “Have you tried calling the police about this?”

    Customer: “You’re in on it, too, aren’t you?!” *grabs her things and scurries off*

    Customer: “Could you show me how to use my phone?”

    Me: “Um…sure. What can I help you with?”

    Customer: “Well, I’ve been told these new phones come with voice control features. Is that true?”

    Me: “Yes sir, just hold the home button to activate the voice control feature.”

    Customer: “That’s it? That’s so easy!” *customer picks up the phone* “Call…my wife.”

    (Nothing happens.)

    Customer: “Why isn’t it calling my wife?”

    Me: “Do you have her listed in your phone book as your wife?”

    Customer: “No.”

    Me: “Yeah. I’m pretty sure the phone isn’t going to know who you’re married to.”

    Cash For Baby Bumpers

    | Sterling, VA, USA | Uncategorized

    (I hear glass shattering from the back of the store, near the wine department. As I head to the source of the sound, I hear a second shatter and see a small child in a cart reaching for a third wine bottle to pull off the rack. There’s no sign of a parent around.)

    Me: “Stop that!”

    (I grab the cart and pull it away from the wine racks. Suddenly, the absent parent shows up.)

    Customer: “How dare you touch that cart! My child is in that cart! How dare you touch my child without my permission!”

    Me: “Ma’am, your child has broken 2 bottles of wine and was about to break a third bottle. I just saved you another $12.99.”

    Customer: “Saved me? You’re the one trying to kidnap my child!”

    Me: “Ma’am, you already owe me $26 for what happened when you were not watching your own child.”

    Customer: “If you’re going to charge me money for bringing my child into the store, I should just let you take him!”
