Customer: “I want to pay my cell phone bill.”

Me: “Sure. May I have your wireless number?”

(A lady came and returned a paper shredder to the store because the one she had was running its motor at odd intervals when no one was in the room. I exchanged her shredder for a new one and offered to carry it out to her car for her.)

Customer: “You know, if I hadn’t moved recently, I wouldn’t have thought twice about my old shredder acting up.”

Me: “Really? Why is that?”

Customer: “Well, my old house was haunted!”

Me: “Really…”

Customer: “Really. My old house was haunted by the ghosts of my ex husband and his crazy, dead aunt. You know, most people would think I’m crazy, but you seem really receptive to this!”

Customer: “Hello, I’d like to return this cookie jar.”

Me: “Do you have your receipt?”

Customer: “Yes.” *hands receipts over*

Me: “So why are you returning this?”

Customer: “Oh, my husband didn’t fit into it.”

Me: “What do you mean?”

Customer: “Well, my husband recently passed away. He loved cookies, so I figured that I would get him something like this for an urn, but when I tried to put him in there, he didn’t fit.”

Me: “Ah.”

(A customer enters our pawn shop, and I motion her over to my counter.)

Me: “What can I do for you today?”

Customer: “Yeah, I wanna pawn my internet.”

Me: “Do you mean your computer? If it’s complete and relatively new we’ll take it. You just have to bring it in so we can test it out first.”

Customer: *getting angry* “No, man, my internet!”

Me: “Umm…do you mean your modem? Because we don’t take modems or routers by themselves.”

Customer: “No man, I wanna pawn my internet! My INTERNET!”

Me: “Like…your AOL account or something? We can’t do that either.”

Customer: “No! I wanna pawn my internet, man! THE INTERNET!”

Me: “Ma’am, if you can actually bring me the internet, I’ll give you $100 out of my own wallet and you can keep it.”

Customer: *happy again* “Okay, I’ll be right back!”

(She never came back.)

(Our tea store hands out free samples in the mall in small two ounce cups to people walking by the store. An older woman walks by one day.)

Me: “Would you like to try some tea, ma’am?”

Customer: *smiling* “Why yes! I love tea! What flavors do you have?”

Me: “Well, I have a relaxing green tea, and…”

(At this point the woman’s expression changes and she cuts me off mid-sentence, waving her hand in my face.)

Customer: “Oh forget it! I don’t want to relax! Forget it! You should be ashamed!” *storms off*
