    (I was stocking things in the animals department when a woman walked up to me carrying a bag of cat litter that read “White Cat Litter”. The litter in the bag was white.)

    Customer: “Excuse me..”

    Me: “Is there something you need help with, ma’am?”

    Customer: “Yes, I was wondering if my tabby could use this litter?”

    Me: “Well yes, I believe so, unless your vet has specified a certain brand?”

    Customer: “No, no. I want to make sure my gray tiger tabby can use this. It says ‘white cat’…”

    Me: “I don’t think it matters what kind of cat you have, ma’am.”

    Customer: “Even though he’s not white?”

    Me: “Well, since grey is just a darker shade of white, I think it’ll be okay.”

    Customer: “Great! Thanks so much!”

    Customer: “What is this Blu-ray thing? Are they like movies?”

    Me: “Well, ma’am, they are like DVDs, but with better graphics and sound. Let me show you this packet we have that explains it.”

    (I show her the packet.)

    Customer: “OK, well, do you have any movies that are 3-D?”

    Me: “We have The Polar Express and the Hannah Montana concert, but those are not going to be near the quality that you see in the theaters.”

    Customer: “Oh. What about holograms? Do you have any movies on holograms?”

    Me: “What? No, those don’t really exist ma’am…”

    Customer: “Oh. I’ll just come back later and check then.”

    Customer: “Excuse me, but I’m looking for your rubber semen.”

    Me: “Excuse me?!”

    Customer: “You heard right! I need rubber semen.”

    Me: “Um…I’m not entirely sure we carry that here.”

    Customer: “Well, if you have it, it would be over by the glue.”

    Me: “Oh! You meant rubber cement!”

    Customer: “What did you think I meant?”

    Me: “…Semen.”

    Customer: “Oh, no… we wouldn’t be talking about that until we’ve gone out a couple times.”

    | Tucson, AZ, USA | Uncategorized

    (The store I work in closes at 10:00 PM. It’s 11:30 pm and I’ve finished closing up shop, so I am about to leave. A customer comes up to the door.)

    Customer: “Hey are you open?”

    Me: “No, we’re closed.”

    Customer: “Okay, but you ARE open, right?”

    Me: “Sorry, ma’am, we aren’t.”

    Customer: “But I want to buy something.”

    Me: “Sorry, you’ll have to buy it tomorrow.”

    Customer: “Fine! You f*%$ing scumbag!”

    Me: *thinking: what a b****!*

    (This took place at the cigar store I work at.)

    Me: “Can I help you?”

    Customer: “Yeah, I need the biggest cigar you’ve got.”

    Me: “OK, our largest is 12 inches long, and the price is $27 before tax.”

    Customer: “Whoa! 27 bucks? You got anything cheaper?”

    Me: “Well, yes. Is this going to be a gag gift?”

    Customer: “Huh?”

    Me: “You know, a joke present for someone?”

    Customer: “Oh h*** no! I’m just gonna split it and fill it with this.”

    (The customer pulls a plastic bag full of marijuana out of his pocket.)

    Customer #2: “Wow, that’s some fine-lookin’ weed you got there!”

    Customer: “Yeah, I just bought it.”

    (Customer #2 pulls out his badge and identifies himself as a county police officer.)

    Customer: “Am I in trouble?”

    Customer #2: “Yes you are.”
