    Customer: “I’m looking for something that ain’t made in China. This one says made in EU… what’s that mean?”

    Me: “It means it’s made in the European Union.”

    Customer: “Billy! Billy come quick! This lady says Europe’s a union now!

    Bad Pickup Lines Revisited

    | Midland, MI, USA |

    (I was on the phone with a customer who was asking about underwear.  Keep in mind that I am female.)

    Me: “Hello, this is ***. How may I help you?”

    Male customer: “Yes, I’m looking for pink underwear.”

    Me: “Okay, are you looking for men or women?”

    Male customer: “Women.”

    Me: “Alright, we have many types of pink underwear. Do you know what kind you are looking for?”

    Male customer: “No, what kinds do you have?”

    (I proceed to list off the types of ladies underwear that come in pink.)

    Male customer: “Um, okay. What kind of underwear are you wearing?”

    Me: “Is that really necessary?”

    Male customer: “Yes.”

    Me: “No, it’s not.” *click*

    Kids, This Is What We Call “Scapegoating”

    | Orange, CA, USA | Top

    Kid: “Mommy, I want this candy!”

    Mom: “No, you can’t have the candy. Put it back.”

    Kid: “I WANT THIS CANDY!”

    Mom: “You can’t have it!”

    Kid: “I WANT THIS CANDY!”

    (At this point, the mom takes the candy from the kid and hands it to me.)

    Mom: *points at me* “The bad man took the candy! You can’t have it because the bad man took it!”

    Kid: *in tears* “Why did you take the candy?!”

    Me: *speechless*

    Idiotic Costume Ideas, Vol. 1

    | Sacramento, CA, USA |

    (A man comes into the store. He’s covered in tattoos, sporting a buzz cut and a solid gold grill, and wearing a wife beater. He comes up to me.)

    Man: “Uh, yeah, do you guys have a KKK costume?”

    Me: “No… no, we don’t.”

    Man: “Oh, uh, do you know where I could get one?”

    Me: *repulsed* “I guess you could make one, but you’re not going to find it in any store in town.”

    (He walks off, but returns about 5 minutes later.)

    Man: “Do you have a Lorena Bobbitt costume?”

    Me: “No, sorry.”

    Man: *leaves*

    Coworker: “Who the h*** would WANT one?!”

    We Need One Of These In Every Store, Part 3

    | Ohio, USA | Awesome Customers

    (The store I work at has a policy where an employee has to check every customer’s receipt on their way out the exit. After checking several receipts, a customer walks up with three items in his cart and starts walking right past me.)

    Me: “Sir, I need to check your receipt.”

    Customer: “I only have three items in my cart.”

    Me: “I know, but it’s store policy. I just need to mark it with –”

    Customer: “It’s because I’m black, isn’t it?”

    Me: “Excuse me?”

    Customer: “You’re only checking my receipt because I’m black! You think because I’m black, I’m a thief!”

    Me: “Sir, I checked the receipts for everybody in front of you, and I’m going to check the receipts for everybody behind you. Now if you’ll let me see your receipt, I just need to mark it. You’re holding everybody up.”

    Customer: “No, I’m not moving until you call your manager! I don’t shop here to be treated like this! You d*** racist!”

    (At this point, a big, imposing customer waiting behind him–who just happens to also be African American–explodes.)

    Big, imposing customer: “GET YOUR A** OUT OF THE WAY NOW!”

    Customer: *hands me receipt*
