(A woman comes in, looks around for a few minutes, then comes up to the register with a printer she clearly didn’t have before.)

Coworker (over the radio): Stall her, I’m coming up to the front after checking the printer stock.

Me: Hi, how can I help you?

Customer: I want to return this printer. It doesn’t work with my computer.

Me: What do you mean?

Customer: I mean the damn thing doesn’t work! The cable doesn’t fit!

(This printer, like most sold today, don’t even come with the cable. At this point, my coworker notices a missing printer from our display and is on the way up front.)

Me: Are you talking about the USB cable? The UNIVERSAL printer cable that should work with all printers?

Customer: Don’t sass me! I want my store credit!

Me: Ma’am, the printer hasn’t even been opened yet.

Customer: Well, f*** you if you don’t think I could re-tape it!

Me: It’s the same tape as it was first boxed with. Not to mention you didn’t know about the USB cable, which is both not included with this printer, and standard for EVERY printer and computer for years.


(She takes a swing at me, and gets immediately restrained by my coworker, who she looks to outweigh by about 50 pounds The police soon arrive, dragging the customer kicking and screaming out the door. Somehow, I was fired for almost losing a printer! Glad I’m never working there again.)
