    Armageddon Shopping List: Holy Water, Crucifix, Tic Tac

    | Boston, MA, USA |

    (I was working at the express lane one Sunday morning, and this family comes in. Keep in mind that they look like something straight out of the Beverly Hillbillies. So they purchase a few things, and their total comes up to $6.66.)

    Customer: *looks at total in horror and points to son* “Quick, get some candy, gum, anything!”

    (His son then proceeds to throw a box of Tic Tacs at me.)

    Customer: “I will not have the Devil’s number as my total!”

    Me: “Thank you sir, have a nice day!”

    Ah, Fathers

    | Winnipeg, MB, Canada |

    (I was a cashier and father and young son were in line.)

    Son: “Wow, that’s a lot of stuff!”

    Dad: “Yeah, I might have to sell your bike to pay for it all.”

    Son: “Noooo, not my bike!”

    Dad: *laughs* “No, I wouldn’t sell your bike for food. Although, I might sell it for beer…”

    Because PvP In Produce Is Teh Suxxorz

    | Dayton, OH, USA |

    (I worked in the meat department of a large, popular convenience store a few years ago. Alongside this, I was both in college, and played World of Warcraft, so I was pretty zonked whenever I worked.)

    Customer: “HEY!”

    Me: “Hello sir, how can I help you?”

    Customer: *scowls* “Where’s LARD?!”

    (The name for my character in WoW was Lard. The night before, I ended up having to kick a guildy due to him basically being a moron. After he was kicked, he messaged to me that he was ‘going to get me one day’)

    Customer: “… Lard?”

    Me: “Um… um!”

    Customer: *glares, then looks down* “Oh, here it is.”

    (He bends down and picks up a jar of lard from the counter infront of me and walks away, and I breathe a huge sigh of relief. I later found out that the same person deleted his character, rerolled the opposite faction, and leveled him to 70 in order to “Kill Lard and camp his corpse.” I consider that the moment that I won at WoW.)

    Righteousness And Hyprocisy, Sitting In A Tree

    | Michigan, USA |

    (I was ringing this ladies order up and the entire order consisted of chicken, pork chops, t-bones and rib eyes.)

    Me: “Okay, ma’am. Your total is going to be [over $200].”

    Customer: “Now before I pay you, I have to say something…”

    Me: “Okay?”

    Customer: “I know this has no reflection on you and you more than likely can’t do anything about it, but ***** has no right to sell live animals.”

    Me: “Okay, ma’am.”

    (I start chuckling a little. We only sell live gold fish as feeder fish for people’s piranhas and Oscars.)

    Customer: “Well, what on earth can be so funny about me saying that?”

    Me: “Weeelllll, you really had no problem buying the dead animals we sell.”

    Customer: “As a charter member of PETA, I resent everything you just said to me. Not only does this store sell live animals, but it sells dead ones too?”

    Me: “Well, yes, ma’am. We sell pork, chicken, beef, bison, and several different types of fish.”

    Customer: “And you see no problem with this?!”

    Me: “Well you see, ma’am, as a card carrying member of the NRA, the only problem I can see is that they don’t also offer to cook it for me too.”

    (She stormed off without ever paying for her stuff. My manager wound up writing me up for being less than courteous.)

    5 Minutes And 9 Months

    | St. Louis, MO, USA |

    (The couple walked up to my line and the guy put his stuff on the belt first. Then, the girl put up a divider and her stuff.)

    Guy: “Sweetie, let me pay for your stuff.”

    Girl: “FINE!” *storms off*

    Me: *thinking to self* “What the #@&% is going on?”

    (I look at what she is purchasing and realize that the only thing she’s buying is a home pregnancy test.)
