Give Me Good Ol’ Inefficiency Any Day

| Utah, USA | Uncategorized

(I’m one of the fastest cashiers and often receive positive feedback from customers.)

Me: “… and your total is $***.**.”

Customer: “Wait, that can’t be right. I added it up. It should be less than that! You need to change something!”

Me: “Alright, sir, but it will take me a minute to bring your transaction back up. Your receipt is already printed.”

Customer: “Are you kidding me? This is ridiculous! This is your fault–you rang me up too flippin’ fast! I’m sick of these stores and their flippin’ fast cashiers!” *takes receipt and storms away*

Next customer: “Did that guy seriously just yell at you for being fast?!”

Ah, Grandmothers

, | Ohio, USA | Uncategorized

(I was working in the fitting room and overheard an obviously frustrated grandmother and her 7 year old granddaughter yelling at each other.)

Grandmother: “Put on your d*** pants!”

Girl: “No! I don’t want to!”

Grandmother: “1…2…3…”

Girl: “Nooooo! I hate you!”

Grandmother: “Well, I hate you too, so we’re even!”

Howard Hughes Goes Shopping

(I had just finished a customer’s transaction, and was gathering up the change.)

Me: “All right, your change is ****.”

Customer: “Wait…I don’t like people touching my money…is there any way I can just take it out of the drawer myself?”

Me: “…um, no.”

Customer: “But what am I supposed to do? I don’t want you to contaminate it with germs!”

Me: “…get a debit card?”

(He leaves with his contaminated money, quite annoyed.)

When Political Causes Collide

, | Victoria, BC, Canada | Top

Customer: “Excuse me, where is this table made? It’s not made in China, is it?”

Me: “Yes, I do believe it’s made in China.”

Customer: “I can’t believe you would sell things from China.”

Me: “Well, we have a factory there that makes custom furnishings directly for us. I assure you they’re of the highest quality.”

Customer: “Well, I can’t shop here! This is an outrage!

Me: “I don’t see the problem…”

Customer: “The problem is that they do animal testing in China!”

Me: “Um, this is a table.”

Customer: “They still do animal testing!”

Me: “Well, I assure you no animals were harmed during the building of this table.”

Customer: *storms out*

Speak For Yourself, Part 3

, | Los Angeles, CA, USA | Uncategorized

Customer: “Excuse me.”

Me: “Yes, may I help you?”

Customer:“What is this?”

Me: “A t-shirt.”

Customer: “Who’s the d*** picture of?”

Me: “That’s Grizzly Adams, sir.”

Customer: “No, it’s Charles Manson! How can you sell this in your shop? It’s disgusting!”

Me: “It’s not my shop.”

Customer: “You work here, why don’t you find a real job that doesn’t promote murderers and killing!”

(The customer hands me a card: “Bill ***, Army Recruiter.”)
