Piloting A New Reason To Drink

| Norway | Awesome Customers, Food & Drink

(I am working in a bar calling last orders. Finishing the last orders, I go on to clean down the bar and finish off. A man walks over to the bar and asks for a beer. Licensing law being very strict in Norway I’m in no way allowed to sell that beer after closing hours.)

Customer: “One beer, please.”

Me: “Sorry, we are closed and I can’t sell you a beer.”

Customer: “Come on, I’ll finish the beer by the time you have finished.”

Me: “Sorry, no can do. It’s the law.”

Customer: “It’s been a long hard day and all I ask is one beer, please?”

Me: “Look, if you are getting to airport at 2:15 and your plane is leaving at 2:00, you’re not getting on that plane, are you?”

Customer: “If I’m flying at 2:00 the plane is waiting for me, because I’m the pilot!”

(He got the beer…)

Seeking A Truly Honest Opinion

| AB, Canada | Awesome Customers

(I’m shopping in a popular trendy store, carrying my jacket and my purse, and I’m holding a few things I want to try on when a guy walks up to me.)

Guy: “Hi. You don’t work here, do you?”

Me: “Uh, no.”

Guy: “Oh, good. What do you think of this jacket?” *holds out his arms to display the jacket he’s trying on*

That’s How You Wish The Cookie Crumbled

| Acton, MA, USA | At The Checkout, Awesome Customers

(I am on checkout.)

Customer: *notices the shopping carts full of items other customers didn’t want* “What are all those?”

Me: “These are things other people decided they didn’t want.”

Customer: *looks confused* “That’s strange.”

Me: “Well, it’s better that they bring them up here for us to put away then leave them on a random place on the shelf.”

Customer: *looks confused and surprised* “Why would people do that? Why not just put it back where they found it.”

Me: “They’re lazy? Or they can’t find where it goes.”

Customer: *quietly looks confused*

Me: “Have you ever worked retail?”

Customer: “No, never.”

Me: “…Huh. Normally it’s only people who’ve worked retail that do that, because they know what it’s like.” *I finish bagging their stuff and give them their receipt* “Here you go. Have a good holiday.”

Customer: “Thank you. You, too.”

Me: *to myself* “We need something like cookies we can give out to good customers.”
