Customer: “Wow! you look so much like that guy!”

Me: “Um…what guy, ma’am?”

Customer: “You know! That rocker guy with that daughter and son.”

Me: “Do you mean Ozzy Osbourne?”

Customer: “Yeah! That guy.” *pauses* “You have such a great skin!”

(The customer begins to grab my face.)

Me: *starts pulling away* “Uh…ma’am, can you please stop touching my face?”

Customer: “Why? Come back!”

Manager: *coming out of his office* “Ma’am, please leave my store and stop harassing my staff!”

Customer: “But…why can’t I touch his face?”

(A blond teen of about 16 or 17 was trying to buy alcohol. She was pushing a stroller with a baby in it.)

Customer: “I just want to buy it, OK?”

Me: “May I please see some ID?”

Customer: “I have a baby here!” *points at child*

Me: “Um…that child is not your ID.”

Customer: “But I can clearly buy alcohol if I have a baby!”

Me: “Of course…”

Customer: “So you’re going to let me buy it?”

Me: “I said I’m going to need to see some ID.”

Customer: “God, keep your god**** beer!” *rushes out of store with stroller*

Customer: “I just bought a video game, and there’s plastic on it.”

Me: “OK…”

Customer: “What do I do? Do I take the plastic off?”

Customer: “But nothing will happen, right?”

Me: “No. Nothing is going to happen.”

Customer: “Are you sure?”

Me: “Yes, I’m sure.”

Customer: “All right. I’ll call back if something happens.”

Customer: “Yes, hi. I was just wondering how much your Mexicans are?”

Me: “I’m sorry?”

Customer: “Your Mexicans. The ones you have outside in the parking lot. I need some work done on my roof and I wanted to come pick up a couple.”

Me: “Ma’am…first of all, they are called day laborers. Secondly, they don’t belong to us. They don’t belong to anyone actually, they are people. Third, our city prohibits soliciting work in a shopping center, so we actually don’t have any workers in the parking lot. If you need work done–”

Customer: “Never mind, I’ll just shop somewhere else!” *hangs up*
