    Guidance Counseling, Customer Style

    | United Kingdom |

    (I’m finishing a long transaction for a supermarket customer.)

    Customer: “You realise that you didn’t say ‘please or ‘thank you’ throughout all of that?!”

    Me: “I’m sorry, but I thought I did.”

    Customer: “Do you go to college or is this your full time job?!’

    Me: “I go to college, but–”

    Customer: “GOOD! DON’T DO THIS FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE BECAUSE YOU’RE ABSOLUTELY CRAP AT IT!”

    Education Is No Guarantee

    | New York, USA |

    Customer: “A packet of cigarettes and some gum, please.”

    Me: “I’ll need an ID for the cigarettes, sir.”

    Customer: “What? Why?!”

    Me: “If you look under 30 we need an ID.”

    Customer: “But…why?”

    Me: “It’s against the law to sell cigarettes to underaged persons. If there’s any risk of it, I need to check IDs or any other proof of identity, such as a driver’s license, passport, etc.”

    Customer: “But, like, WHY?!”

    Me: “It’s against the law. I could be fired or fined, and you’d get a penalty as well.”

    Customer: “Yeah, but WHY?!”

    Me: “It’s illegal, sir.”

    Customer: “WHY?!”

    Me: “Because…smoking is dangerous.”

    Customer: “What?! Why?”

    Me: “It has a lot of poisonous chemicals and known carcinogens in it.”

    Customer: “Your cigarettes have carcinogens in them? Eww, I’m not buying these.”

    Me: “Sir, the packet clearly reads “SMOKING KILLS”. Wasn’t that a hint?”

    Customer: “I can’t believe you’d sell CARCINOGENS. That’s just…ugh. Just give me some gum!”

    Me: “Um… okay, sir, which flavor and brand?”

    Customer: “Any flavor, any brand… umm, do you have that nicotine gum stuff?”
