Showing Signs Of A Recovery

, | Canberra, ACT, Australia | At The Checkout, Awesome Customers

(I am the customer in this story. I have just had a rant about customers in my store not reading signs to my fiancé while he was buying shoes.)

Me: “Ah, these are nice.” *to sales clerk* “Excuse me, there is no 50% off sticker on these. Don’t you have a 50% off sale like the sign on the window says?”

Sales Clerk: “Uh, no. That only applies to certain brands and this brand isn’t on sale.”

Me: “Oh, no! I’ve turned into that customer that doesn’t read the whole sale sign! I was just ranting about those!”

(We had a good laugh and talked about horrible customers and how sometimes we accidentally have those moments, so I think I was forgiven.)

One More Thing That She Needs

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

(I’m on an express checkout when a woman unloads her groceries onto my belt. We exchange friendly greetings.)

Me: “Did you find everything you needed okay?”

Customer: “Does it look like I did?”

Me: “…I guess?”

Customer: “Do they ask you to ask that?”

Me: “Yes, but I legitimately ask that question to make sure.”

Customer: “I hate it when people ask you that at the register. It’s all right there, and if I didn’t, I’d go back and get it!”

Me: “Well, that makes sense.”

Customer: “See, I’m a one woman army to get cashiers to stop asking that question!”

Bring (From) Home The Bacon

| MI, USA | Awesome Customers, Food & Drink

(I’m chatting with a customer as her husband tries on some jeans.)

Me: “Oh, wow, what is that amazing smell?”

Customer: “I just baked a bunch of bacon cookies before we came here.”

Me: “Those sound so good. Oh, look, here he comes. Do they fit okay?”

(Her husband was really picky about the jeans, but after about an hour I found a few pairs they both liked.)

Customer: “How long are you working today?”

Me: “My shift’s up, but I’ll be back tomorrow.”

(The next day…)

Customer: “Hi, remember me?”

Me: “Sure do. Was everything okay with the jeans?”

Customer: “They’re awesome. I just wanted to give you these.”

(She hands me a gallon zip lock bag crammed full of bacon cookies. I’m speechless.)

Customer: “Thank you so much for all your help yesterday.”

(They were the best cookies ever. Thank you, wherever you are!)
