Dolled Up And Priced Down

| Summit, NJ, USA | Awesome Customers, Awesome Workers

(I work at a small mom and pop pharmacy. We are having a buy-one-get-one sale on some collectible dolls. A middle-aged female customer is browsing the collectibles. There are six different dolls, each a different color. I happen to be at the counter where they are displayed.)

Me: “Hello, I see you are interested in these dolls.”

Customer: “Yes, but I’m unsure which one to get.”

Me: “Well, we are having a sale on them.”

Customer: “I see.”

Me: “Well, just inform me which ones you decide on.”

Customer: *eyes light up* “I can get more than one!?”

Me: “Yes.”

Customer: “How much for one?”

Me: “$14.50.”

(The customer starts counting on her fingers, then sighs.)

Me: “What seems to be the problem?”

Customer: “I only have enough money for three of them.”

(I am confused.)

Customer: “Even with your sale, I would only get be able to get four.”

(I figure out what is the misunderstanding in her logic.)

Me: “How about this, you buy three and I’ll give you the other three on the house?”

Customer: “You will won’t you get in trouble for that?”

Me: “I won’t tell if you won’t tell.”

(I got her dolls and rang her up. She kinda skipped out of the store.)

Stupidly Honest

| Calgary, AB, Canada | Awesome Customers, Health & Body

(I’m in a walk-in clinic paying for a doctor’s note, when I overhear an exchange between a man and a nurse about why he’s at the clinic.)

Nurse: “So, is this something work related?”

Man: “No, it’s something stupidity related.”

(At least he was honest.)

Clawing Back Faith In Humanity

| New Zealand | Awesome Customers, Family & Kids

(The cinema I work for has a large games area. They staff this area with a cash-out booth, so patrons can get out coins from their EFTPOS cards. We also help out when games break down or have issues. On this day I am working in the booth when a middle aged lady approaches me.)

Lady: “Hey, I just thought I’d let you know, one of your claw machines is broken. These kids have been playing on it on just $2, but the machine keeps giving them free turns.”

Me: “Oh, thank you for letting me know! I’ll see what I can do about it.”

(As we have to make sure all the games are working and not handing out free things, I go over to check on the machine. Sure enough, there are these two seven- to nine-year-old boys playing on the crane game for the larger sized toys, and I notice that there seems to be a lot less than there were earlier that morning. I’m about to go over and tell the boys I can’t let them keep playing anymore when one of them wins a large Hello Kitty toy. He then promptly runs over to a random young lady and asks her if she would like the toy because he didn’t want it but he thought she might like it. Baffled, clearly having never met the kid before, the woman accepts. I happen to notice a lot of other people wandering around the games area with large toys. I assume most have never met the boys before. It is the cutest thing ever, so I let them win one more toy each to take home for themselves, seeing how they have given away every single other toy to strangers. After that I fix the game once their parents take them off to their movie. Cutest kids I’ve ever met.)
