November Theme Of The Month: Black Friday!

Some Behavior Is Beyond Brief

| Rye Town, NY, USA | Uncategorized

(I am a saleswoman who had to organize the men’s underwear about 10 minutes before a customer walked in.)

Me: “Hello ma’am, can I help you?”

Customer: “Yes, I need [pair of underwear] in a size medium.”

Me: “I am terribly sorry, but we are out of that particular size in that brand.”

Customer: “No, I do not believe you. Can you not check?”

Me: “I can assure you I organized the underwear not too long ago, but I would love to check for you. If we do not have it, I can order it for you.”

(I recheck, and the underwear is not there.)

Me: “I am sorry, ma’am, would you like me to order it for you?”

Customer: “No, I will go somewhere else.”

(As she leaves, she passes by my manager.)

Customer: *whispering loudly* “Do you know your female employee spends her free time in men’s underwear?”

Manager: “Do you know I make her?”

One Mother, One Cup

| Springfield, MO, USA | At The Checkout, Family & Kids, Money, Uncategorized

Customer: “Hi I need to return this.” *hands over an opened and clearly worn jock cup*

Me: “I’m sorry ma’am, this is a completely non-returnable item.”

Customer: “I called and you said your return policy is 30 days with receipt.”

Me: “That’s except for jocks and mouth-guards. Cashiers tell you at the time of purchase that they’re completely non-returnable.”

Customer: “Well, I didn’t understand. So, there’s nothing you can do for me?”

Me: “I’m sorry. It’s store policy based on our health-code.”

Customer: “Well, how was I supposed to know that my little boy would have such a big wee-wee?” *grabs her very embarrassed-looking son and leaves*

Literally Going Nowhere

| Phoenix, AZ, USA | Extra Stupid, Technology, Uncategorized

Me: “Hi ma’am, what can I help you with today?”

Customer: “It’s this stupid GPS watch that I bought. What a big waste of money!  It doesn’t even work.”

Me: “What’s the problem with it?”

Customer: “It shows the time, but not now how far I ran. I was running on the treadmill for over 30 minutes!”

The Cup Is Definitely Half Empty

| North Syracuse, NY, USA | Uncategorized

(A woman and her twelve year-old son are buying hockey equipment.)

Me: “Okay, you’ll also need a cup & supporter for him.”

Customer: “How do I know what size he needs?”

Me: “The supporter is based on his waist size. Do you know his waist size?”

Customer: “Yes, but how do I know what size the cup should be for him?”

Me: “Well, you’d know better than me! I’d recommend the teen size.”

Customer: “No. If he’s anything like his father, he’ll need an extra-small.”

Ironically, He Works With Balls…

| Sparks, NV, USA | Uncategorized

Customer: “I’m going to be pitching for my softball team, and I need a cup and jockstrap.”

Me: “Sure thing, they’re right over here.”

Customer: “How do you know what size to get?”

Me: “The jockstraps are measured by waistband size. All the cups are the same size.”

Customer: “Those cups are all huge! There’s no way I can fill one of those up!”

Me: “…”
