    Like A Dog Chasing Its Own Tail

    | Ottawa, ON, Canada |

    Customer: “Do you have this shoe in a size 6? My son needs a size six.”

    Me: “Ahh… no, I’m sorry. It seems we’re all out of that size.”

    Customer: “But, there’s a size six right there.”

    (She points to a shoe that is a completely different style.)

    Me: “Yes, but that’s a different style shoe. We stock them alphabetically on the riser, but on the shelves we show them by price.”

    Customer: “Just give me that six, then!”

    Me: “Sure thing.” *hands her the box*

    Customer: “This isn’t the shoe I wanted.”

    Me: “I know. Even though I just told you that we are out of size six in the style you wanted, you still asked to see this one.”

    Customer: “I don’t want this one. Put it back.”

    Me: “Okay…”

    Customer: “What about this style shoe?”

    Me: “Unfortunately, there aren’t any size sixes left in that style either.”

    Customer: “But there’s a six RIGHT THERE.”

    (Note that she is pointing to the box I JUST put back.)

    Me: “That is a different shoe style, and you already looked at that EXACT box.”

    Customer: “JUST GET ME THAT SIX!”

    Me: “Okay.” *hands her the box*

    Customer: “This isn’t the style that I wanted!”

    Me: “…”

    Childhood Dream, Meet Retail Nightmare

    , | Los Angeles, CA |

    (We often get fashion design students in our store to get samples of fabric for school projects.)

    Student: “Can I get some swatches? I go to the *** fashion school and need them for a class project.”

    Me: “No problem. That’s the school I went to.”

    Student: “Oh, cool! What do you do now?”

    Me: “… I work here.”

    Student: *their dreams crush before my eyes*

    Iraq, Land Of Crappy Return Policies

    | St. Louis, MO, USA |

    Customer: “Hi, I wanted to return this set of knives and your cashier wouldn’t let me.”

    Me: “When was the original date of purchase, ma’am?”

    (She hands me a receipt.)

    Me: “Oh, I’m sorry ma’am. Since you bought these over 60 days ago, we won’t be able to refund your money.”

    Customer: “But I don’t want them anymore. Just take them back and give me my money.”

    Me: “I’m not able to do that, ma’am.”

    Customer: “But I don’t want the g**d*** knives! Take them!”

    Me: “Ma’am, it is not in my power to do a return for you.”

    Customer: “Well, then get someone who can, g**d*** it!”

    Me: “Ma’am, you don’t understand. After 60 days, the system locks out the transaction. It is in nobody’s power to refund you.”

    Customer: “You g**d*** incompetent pieces of s***! I don’t want these f***ing knives, and I want you to take them back now!”

    Me: “There is nothing I can do to help you, ma’am.”

    Customer: “It’s because of f***ing fascists like you that we’re at war in Iraq! Do you realize that? THIS IS YOUR FAULT!”

    Welcome To Retail

    , | Houston, TX, USA |

    Me: “Hello this is Kevin.”

    Customer: “YOU SON OF A B****, YOU SOLD ME A DEFECTIVE MONITOR! I never in my life have had to deal with such bull s*** in my life. I don’t know what type of f***ing black magic you did to make it work at the store, but–”

    Me: “Ma’am, did you push the power button?

    Customer: “… Oh, thank you.” *click*

    Me: *sigh*

    Supervisor: “Yo dude, what’s up?”

    Me: “I need a raise…”

    Time To Find Another Hobby

    | Yorkshire, UK |

    (A customer was trying on a shorty wetsuit.)

    Customer: “It seems to fit okay, but the zip is a little high. It would irritate under my chin.”

    Me: “Yes. I can see what you mean, but if you put the suit on the right way round, you won’t have that problem.”

    Customer: “…”

    Me, to co-worker: “Remind me to never dive with that guy.”
