Unfiltered Story #218559

I’m working during an early morning rush of commuter trains to the nearest big city. A train has just come in and is about to leave when a breathless customer runs up to my counter.

“One ticket to U****, debit, I don’t need a receipt.”

I punch everything in and her receipt prints before the ticket does. I rip them together, (it’s essentially muscle memory at this point) and hand them to her.

“Here is your ticket, have a good day.”

I expect her to run out to the platform immediately but instead she’s staring at the counter, frozen. I’m about to remind her of the train when she snatches up the ticket and receipt, slamming the receipt back down onto the counter.


Not my worst customer story, but one of the strangest overreactions.
