    Why You Never, Ever Share Toothbrushes

    | Dallas, TX, USA |

    Customer: “I need to return this toothbrush.”

    Me: “Do you have a receipt?”

    Customer: “No – I thought it would work.”

    Me: “How did it not work?”

    Customer: “Well, it said it had indicator bristles, and when I peed on them they didn’t change color! How is it supposed to indicate if I’m pregnant or not?!”

    Me: “Ma’am…they’re to indicate whether the toothbrush needs replacing, not whether you’re pregnant.”

    Customer: *looks sheepish and leaves*

    Me: *to manager* “I’m going on break now…”

    A Swing And A Miss

    , | Saskatchewan, Canada |

    Me: “Thank you for calling ****. How may I direct your call?”

    Caller: “Electronics, please.”

    Me: “We’re an electronics store, ma’am. Could you be more specific?”

    Caller: “Umm…just one moment.”

    (She hangs up. Five minutes later, she calls back.)

    Caller: “Electronics DEPARTMENT, please.”

    Me: “…”

    The Lesser Of Two Evils

    | Canada |

    Customer: *holding an ugly teapot* “The stuff on that shelf *pointing* is 75% off. Can I get this teapot for 75% off?”

    Me: “I’m sorry, but that discount only applies to items that were damaged during shipping.”

    Customer: “Look, I’m buying a lot of stuff here. I think I should get a discount on this teapot.”

    Me: “But it’s not broken. You only get a discount if it’s broken.”

    Customer: “You’re not being very helpful. You have to be able to do something for me here.”

    Me: “I could take it into the stock room and smash it for you. Then I could sell it to you at the discounted price. I’m sure you could glue it back together when you get home.”

    Customer: *thinking it over* “No…no, I don’t think so.”

    Gestapo, Taco, Same Difference

    | UK |

    (I work in a retail store that sells kind of quirky and alternative items. As it is nearing Christmas, I was doing the gift-wrapping while a co-worker was ringing up items.)

    Lady: *hands a mug*

    Me: *begins giftwrapping the mug* “Nothing to it. Just
    like wrapping a tortilla!

    Lady: “What would you know about tortillas? You’re blonde!”

    Me: “Well, my mother loves–”

    Lady: “Shut up! You blondes think you’re so much better than everyone else! You’re not! You need everyone else to do all the work for you! You’re all useless, and you’ll never be the master race!”

    Me: “Erm…”

    Lady: *pays and storms out*
