    Some Customers Just Waltz In

    | Gaithersburg, MD, USA |

    (I am a customer in the video game section of a toy store. Another customer comes in and approaches an employee.)

    Customer: “Do you have the dance dance game?”

    Employee: “We might. For which system?”

    Customer: “Dancing?”

    Employee: “No. We need to know, because they only work on the system they were meant for.”

    Customer: “It’s for the television.”

    Employee: “Yes, but-”

    Customer: “You put the thing on the floor and jump around like this!”

    (The customer starts jumping around. It is actually a fairly good representation of playing ‘Dance Dance Revolution’.)

    Ah, Fathers, Part 5

    | New York, NY, USA | Family & Kids, Holidays

    (I’m stocking the shelves. A male customer with a small child of about four comes up to me and asks if there is a post office near by. I tell him there is one a couple of blocks away. He looks at the
    clock, then takes his son’s hand and prepares to walk out of the store. The child doesn’t want to go.)

    Customer: *to the child* “Come on, we need to go to the post office. It’ll close soon.”

    Child: “I want to look at toys.”

    Customer: “We have to go now. We can come back later.”

    Child: “You go. I’ll wait here and play.”

    Customer: “You can’t.”

    Child: “Why?”

    Customer: “Because your dad will go to jail for that.”

    (The child looks perplexed.)

    Customer: *trying to explain* “Think smaller Christmas present. And you’ll have to stay with Grandma a lot.”

    On Reflection, Best Not To Ask…

    | Erie, PA, USA | Family & Kids

    (I work at a store where we stuff animals for our guests. I am helping three sisters, one about 13, one 11, one 6, stuff their bears.)

    Me: “So, are you going to get clothes for your bear?”

    Youngest sister: “Maybe, I hope so!” *notices my name tag* “Hey! Your name is Emily. That’s my twin sister’s name!”

    Me: “Oh, that’s great!”

    (Youngest sister leaves and I help the middle sister, then the oldest.)

    Middle sister: “Oh, your name is Emily, that’s my uh, sister’s twins name.”

    Me: “Yeah, she told me that. Where is her sister, I didn’t see her?”

    Oldest sister: “She didn’t tell you?!” *yelling* “Hey [youngest sister], where does your twin live?”

    Youngest sister: “In the mirrors!”

    Don’t Pin Your Hopes On This One

    | Murfreesboro, TN, USA |

    (I am scanning a customer’s items and the screen prompts me to ask for her phone number.)

    Me: “Can I get your phone number please?”

    Customer: “1-2-3-4.”

    Me: *confused*

    Customer: “Oh, I thought you asked for my pin number.”
