    Inventory Reality Check

    | Pennsylvania, USA |

    Customer: *to me, serious* “So, are you 50% off too?”

    Me: “Excuse me?”

    Customer: “Your sign says that everything is 50% off. That includes you, right?”

    Me: “Sir, I can assure you that I am not for sale. The sale is only on Christmas items, and I am not included.”

    Customer: *still serious* “But you work here! That means you’re for sale too!”

    (After a 5-minute battle, he finally gives up and walks out empty-handed.)

    Eggs, Milk, Bondage Gear…

    | Panama City Beach, FL, USA |

    (I was working for a grocery store in Panama City Beach, which is a big tourist spot. I was bagging this couple’s groceries – which included condoms – when this exchange occurred.)

    Me: “So, you must be from out of town, then?”

    Customer: “Yeah, we’re only here for a few days. Just getting the necessities, y’know?”

    (Just then, a pair of handcuffs comes rolling down the conveyor belt.)

    Me: “Just the necessities, eh?”

    Off To A Great Start

    | Akron, OH, USA |

    Customer: “Hi, can I talk to a manager?”

    Me: “I’m the manager on duty. What can I help you with?”

    Customer: “YOU’RE the manager on duty?! You look like you’re about 16! *laughs with disbelief & scorn*

    Me: “Well, I’m 24, and I am a manager here. How can I help you?”

    Customer: “Can I have a job application?”

    Me: “Um…sure.”

    A New Form Of Payment

    | Fort Lauderdale, FL, USA |

    Customer: “I’ll make you a deal.”

    Me: “Ok…?”

    Customer: “You give me these glasses, and I’ll let you take a picture of me wearing them, and hang it up in your store.”

    Me: “Um…what?”

    Customer:“Yeah, like all these pictures you have of people hanging up.”

    Me: “Those are professional models.”

    Customer: “Well, I’m a model.”

    Me: “…”

    That’s Commitment

    | New York, USA |

    Me: “Thank you for calling your local 24-hour pharmacy, how may I help you?”

    Customer: “Yeah, what time do you close?”

    Me: “Sir, we never close. We’re open 24 hours.”

    Customer: “Well, that’s just ridiculous. How can you put up with that?”

    Me: “Sir?”

    Customer: “So if I show up at 4 in the morning with a prescription, you’d be there?”

    Me: “Yes sir, we’d be open.”

    Customer: “And what time do you open?”

    Me: “Sir…we never close, we are always open. Think of it like a 24-hour diner; there’s always someone here to help you.”

    Customer: “Oh man, that must stink – when do you get time to go home and sleep?!”

    Me: “Er…we have cots in the back.”
