    Happy Birthday Two You

    | Nanaimo, BC, Canada | At The Checkout, Awesome Customers, Top

    (I am working a shift on my birthday. An elderly customer that I recognize comes in without any items to have altered; I assume she is picking up an order.)

    Me: “Good afternoon Mrs. [name]! What can I do for you today?”

    Customer: “I just wanted to come in to tell you what a lovely job you did on my pants last week, and to give you this!”

    (She ‘ninjas’ a bag out of her purse, and places it on my counter. It is a little bag of gourmet chocolate squares!)

    Me: “For me? Really?”

    Customer: “Yes! You were so nice to me, and I thought it would be nice to give you a treat!”

    Me: “Well, that was really nice of you! Wow! These are even all the flavors I like! It is my birthday today, so thank you for the present!”

    Customer: “It is? It is my birthday today, too! How about that! Happy birthday!”

    Me: “Happy birthday to you, too!”

    Customer: “Well, goodbye! I will see you again sometime!”

    Me: “Have a great afternoon, and I hope so! Bye!”

    Height Insight

    | Phoenix, AZ, USA |

    (A customer is getting a suit jacket fitted. She is rather short.)

    Me: “Okay, may I have your height?”

    Customer: “Height? What’s that?”

    Me: “How tall are you, ma’am?”

    Customer: “Oh, yes…height. Of course. I think I’m, like, 5’12″?”

    Me: “Okay, so about six foot?”

    Customer: “No, 5’12″. Didn’t I just say that?”

    Me: “Yes, ma’am. 5 feet 12 inches would be the same as six foot.”

    Customer: “Well, they’ve changed it since last I checked.”
