    The Tower Of Babble

    | New Zealand | At The Checkout, Language & Words

    (Note: I am of Asian descent.)

    Me: “Good morning!” *starts scanning groceries*

    Customer: “Ni hao!”

    Me: “Oh, I’m not Chinese.”

    Customer: “Konnichiwa!”

    Me: “I’m not–”

    Customer: “Shalom!”

    Me: “Sir, that’s not even–”

    Customer: “Namaste!”

    *silence*

    Customer: “I know so many languages! So many!

    Curiosity Feeds The Cat

    | Victoria, Australia | Pets & Animals

    Customer: “Can you help me please?”

    Me: “Yes, of course, what can I do for you?”

    Customer: “Well, I want to buy some food for my cat, but mine doesn’t look like the one on the packet. Can I still feed it to him?”

    Me: “Yes sir, of course.”

    Customer: “Wow, really? Thanks!”

    From The Mouth Of Babes, Part 2

    | Washington, USA | Family & Kids

    Me: “Can I help you?”

    Child: “I don’t get it.”

    Me: “What?”

    Child: “Are you old or just simple?”

    Me: “Excuse me?”

    Child: “Cause my mom said everyone who works at [supermarket] is either old or simple.”

    (The mother comes running behind him, picks him up, and runs off.)

    Early Bird-Brained

    | New Zealand | Top

    (I am at work doing a before-opening clean of the trolley handles and checkout counters.)

    Customer: “Excuse me, I’d like to buy these now please.”

    Me: “Um, ma’am, I’m not a checkout operator.”

    Customer: “Yes, but I’m here now and I’m running late, so can you just run these through the scanner for me?”

    Me: “Ma’am, it’s five thirty. There are no checkout operators as we don’t open for another hour and a half.”

    Customer: “Oh, I was wondering why there wasn’t anyone in the Deli, but that’s okay because I went back behind the counter and got the ham out the freezer.”

    Me: “Ma’am, you’re not allowed to do that. How did you get in? The doors are locked until the security guard gets here.”

    Customer: “Oh, I broke the window because I thought your door wasn’t working. Can you run these through for me now?”

    I Don’t Work Here Does Not Work Here

    | Texas, USA | Top

    (I work in a library, but I had forgotten to take my name tag off after work when I went shopping.)

    Customer: “What aisle is baking powder?”

    Me: “Huh? Oh, I think it’s that way somewhere. I’m not really sure.”

    Customer: “Well you’d better find out for me. Isn’t that your job?”

    Me: “Oh, no, I’m sorry. I don’t work here.”

    Customer: “Yes you do! You have a name tag on!”

    Me: “Oh! No, I’m sorry, I work at the library, I just forgot to take this off.”

    Customer: *very angry* “I don’t want excuses! Just tell me where the d*** baking powder is!”

    Me: “I don’t know where it is. Go ask someone who works here.”

    Customer: “You’re going to tell me or else!”

    Store Manager: “Can I help you folks?”

    Customer: “Yes! Your employee here is being very rude!”

    Store Manager: “Sir, he doesn’t work here. Is there something I can help you with?”

    Customer: “Oh!” *turning to me* “Well why didn’t you say so?”

    Me: “I did. You were being a moron!”

    Customer: *turning back to manager* “You let your employees curse at customers like that! I want him fired right now!”
