You’re Being An Awesome Somebody

| USA | Awesome Customers, Popular

(I’m buying ice cream and checking out; there is a customer in front of me.)

Cashier: “That’ll be $4.25.”

Customer: *snootily* “Um. Do you know who I am?”

Cashier: “No?”

Customer: *shrugs* “No one important. Keep the change.” *hands a $10 bill and leaves*

(The cashier couldn’t stop laughing. Most amusing part of my day.)

Some Customers Can Be Warming

, | San Francisco, CA, USA | Awesome Customers, Popular

(Usually when the drive-thru gets busy we send an order-taker outside with a tablet to get orders in faster. Around winter time, the temperature drops lower than Californians are used to and on one particular day, it drops below 50°F. They send me out to take orders and I think it isn’t that cold so I just have my short sleeve uniform shirt and pants.)

Me: “Hi! How are you today?”

Customer: “I’m okay, but isn’t it really cold for you?”

Me: “I’m actually not that cold. What can I get for you today?”

(I take her order, give her the total, and direct her to the first window for payment.)

Me: “All right, have a great day!”

Customer: “You, too! Are you sure you aren’t cold? You can take my jacket!”

Me: “Oh, no, please don’t. I’m fine! Thank you anyway!”

(A few minutes later, I see my manager walk outside towards me with a jacket.)

Manager: “Some lady in the drive thru demanded that I give you a jacket and said it was abuse for making you take orders outside.”

Me: “She tried to give me her own, too. At least she cares more than some of the other customers here.”

Fighting For Those Who Cannot

, | Houston, TX, USA | Awesome Customers, Awesome Workers, Food & Drink, Popular

(I work two jobs in the same mall, a very large shopping center whose customers are almost always extremely rich. I have just ordered a drink at one of our coffee shops and am waiting for it. I’m unusually kind to the employees because I know from experience that their job sucks. There’s an uppity rich lady waiting for her drink too.)

Barista: “White mocha frap!”

Customer #1: *picks it up and shakes it angrily at the barista* “Is this a caramel frappucino? I didn’t order this! Why didn’t you get my order right?”

Customer #2: “Sorry, that’s mine!” *takes the cup*

(Customer #1 does this with two more cups. The barista’s being patient, but I’d had it.)

Me: “Lady, will you calm your t**s? I’m looking over the counter. Look, he’s making your drink right now.”

Customer #1: *sarcastic* “Oh, I’m sorry! Are you [Coffee Company]’s stockholder? Are you their business agent?”

Me: “No, I work in retail and I deal with b****’s like you all day, and since he doesn’t get to yell at you, I’ll do his share. Shut up already! There are other customers besides you.”

Customer #1: “Excuse me! I have been waiting here for forty-five minutes—”

Me: “Oh, bull-s***. I’ve never waited more than three minutes here for a drink even at their busiest, and I’ve seen all of five customers besides you today. Look, when you work for a living instead of just spending all of your husband’s money on s*** you don’t need, THEN you can yell at this guy. Until then, do us a favor and shut up!”

(She proceeds to screech unintelligibly at me for half a minute, until suddenly her drink shows up. She then tramps off with her bags. When my drink is called, I am confused to see a large instead of a medium cup.)

Me: “Oh, sorry, I only ordered a medium—”

Barista: “No, you didn’t.”

(Sometimes it’s the little things.)

A Perfect Hollywood Ending

| Redmond, WA, USA | Awesome Customers, Movies & TV, Popular

(I am shopping at a large, well known chain store and happen to pick up the last copy of a newly released DVD geared towards kids when I am approached by a frantic woman.)

Shopper: “Wait! Is that the last copy?”

Me: “Yeah. Sorry.”

(I turn to leave, stop, think for a second, and turn back around.)

Me: “Ma’am? Do you have kids at home?”

Shopper: “Yes, I do.” *motioning with her head to two boys behind her*

Me: “Take it. I can get a copy later.”

Shopper: “Are you sure? Thank you!”

Employee: *to me* “I need you to come with me for a minute.”

(He leads me to a stocking cart where he finds the actual last copy in stock.)

Me: “Awesome! That worked out well. Thanks!”

Employee: *very seriously* “Thank you for your generosity.”

(The look on all their faces made my day. Sometimes good karma pays off instantly!)

The Marco Of A Good Mother

| SC, USA | Awesome Customers, Awesome Workers, Popular

(I am at a checkout, and across from me at another till is a woman with five children. She can’t find one of them, and I guess she usually plays Marco Polo to find them.)

Customer: “Marco!”

Everyone Including Employees: “Polo!”

Customer: “You guys aren’t really helping.”

(We all laughed.)
