    Bad Parenting Is A Sticky Fingered Subject

    | San Luis Obispo, CA, USA |

    (I work at a self-serve frozen yogurt shop, where people get their own yogurt and toppings then pay by weight.)

    Customer: “Excuse me, you should be supervising this store. These kids are putting their fingers in the toppings. It’s not clean!”

    (I look around for a parent, but there seems to be nobody else of suitable age in the shop.)

    Me: “Are these your children?”

    Customer: “Yes, but you should be supervising them! It’s your job!”

    (Note: we are VERY generous in offering frozen yogurt samples in those tiny paper cups that could fit on your thumb.)

    Me: “Here you go, our six choices!” *offers samples*

    (Customer takes samples and shoves the whole thing in her mouth and sucks contents out. When done, she puts the cups back on the counter with yogurt and a LITTLE bit of saliva dripping off the sides. She scoots them in my direction.)

    Me: *stares back, thinking, are you serious?*

    Customer: *stares back at me for what seems like forever*

    Me: “There is a trashcan right below you that you could put those in.”

    Customer: “Ew, I’m not touching those! That’s your job.”

    (The customer walks away, leaving me staring at the messy glob of cups on our front counter.)

    Me: O___o

    Short Term Memory Is For The Weak

    , | Los Angeles, CA, USA |

    (We keep lids for our yogurt cups behind the counter and ask each customer if they need one when we give them their order.)

    Me: “Would you like a lid for that?”

    Female Customer: “No, thank you.”

    Me: “Alright, have a nice day.”

    (She continues to just stand there after I walk away.)

    Female Customer: “Fine! I guess I don’t get a lid then!”

    Customer’s Boyfriend: “You just told her you didn’t want one.”

    Female Customer: “Oh yeah…”

    Me: *facepalm*

    Customer: “Are you Hispanic?”

    Me: “No.”

    Customer: “Middle Eastern?”

    Me: “No.”

    Customer: “Egyptian?”

    Me: “No.”

    Customer: “What are you?”

    Me: “Chinese.”

    (customer puts on offended face)

    Customer: “I don’t appreciate you treating me like I’m dumb.”

    Me: “Excuse me? I’m being honest.”

    Customer: “NO CHINESE PERSON WOULD EVER HAVE EYES AS BIG AS YOURS!!!”

    Me: *mouth wide open*

    One Bad Pickup Line, A Hundred Stitches

    , | Pasadena | Top

    Male Customer: “Do you guys accept tips?”

    Female Coworker: “Yeah, but we try to discourage it. We’d like to think our service is free.”

    Male Customer: “Well um… Here’s a tip.” (Customer pulls out his phone number on a piece of paper)

    (Female coworker’s boyfriend is right behind customer)
