Please Keep Both Hands On The Wheel(chair)

| Dallas, TX, USA | Awesome Customers, Awesome Workers, Health & Body, Top, Transportation

(I’ve been in a wheelchair for several years and am still pretty independent. Unfortunately there are times the chair can be a real pain. I broke down on the interstate on my daily commute and do not have a cell phone. As a result I am wheeling myself down the I-35 shoulder headed to the closest gas station when a DPS unit pulls up behind me. I was very tired since the shoulder of an interstate is not the easiest surface for me to go long distances. When I see the cop something just reminds me of a routine traffic stop, which I find hilarious.)

Me: “Don’t bother asking for my license or proof of insurance for my chair, as I have neither.”

(The cop looked confused for a second, and then burst out laughing.)

A Sign That It Will Be OK

| ME, USA | At The Checkout, Awesome Customers, Top

(I’ve just gotten off a really long, rough shift and decide to treat myself with some ice cream from a shop that’s just opened for the season. I order a small cone and hold out my debit card for the cashier to take while checking my phone.)

Cashier: “Oh. Um… I’m sorry, but we don’t accept cards.”

Me: *looking up* “Oh, really?”

(As I look up, I see just above the cashier’s head a 2x3ft neon pink sign with large, bold letters that say, “No cards accepted. Sorry for any inconvenience”. I glance around and see no less than three more large, bright signs all saying some variation of the pink one.)

Me: *laughing* “Oh, my god, I am so sorry. I’ve always sworn to myself I wouldn’t be one of THOSE customers, you know? Ah, golly, here, lemme run to my car and get some cash. I’m so sorry.”

(After I pay, the girl hands me a medium cone. I’m about to go back to the counter and tell her she gave me a larger size than I wanted when I see some writing on the napkin wrapped around the cone.)

Note On Napkin: “Thank you for not being one of THOSE customers! Here’s to summer. Hope to see you again!”

The Answer Rings True

| Hamlin, NY, USA | Awesome Customers, Food & Drink, Theme Of The Month

(It’s late at night, probably an hour after our normal closing time, and our phone rings.)

Employee: “Hello, [Name] Pizza.”

Caller: “Hi, I’d like to place an order?”

Employee: “I’m sorry, we’ve been closed for about an hour.”

Caller:  *annoyed tone* “Well, why did you answer the phone, then?”

Employee: “…because it rang?”

(The caller burst into laughter and proclaimed that was the best answer he’d ever heard.)
