The Best Trait(or) Of A Good Customer

, | Australia | Awesome Customers, Awesome Workers

(I work for a well known supermarket that has exactly one equally popular competitor in Australia. It’s a well known ‘feud,’ if you will. A customer I don’t recognise comes in and starts looking closely at all our items.)

Customer: *muttering to herself* “Um… can I ask you some stupid questions?”

Me: *chuckling* “Of course.”

Customer: *sheepishly* “I usually shop at [Competitor]…”

(She seems like an understanding type, so I take a risk.)

Me: “Traitor. We don’t like your kind.”

Customer: *flails* “I’m so sorry. Please forgive me!”

(We find everything she’s looking for and she starts walking away.)

Me: “Thank you for shopping at [Store]!”

Customer: “I might even come back! “

A Boy For All Seasons

| Denver, CO, USA | Awesome Customers, Family & Kids, Health & Body

(I’m taking a four-year-old boy back for a check up. He seems a little nervous so I’m talking to him to make him calm down a little bit. Note: the Broncos are playing in the play-offs.)

Me: “Is it still snowing outside? You look like you’re freezing!”

Kid: “Uh-huh, I don’t like the cold!”

Me: “Aw, that’s too bad. I love the cold. I love it when it’s winter! What’s your favorite season?”

Kid: “Post-season!”

Me: “Huh, what? Can you name the four seasons?”

Kid: “Duh! Pre-season, regular season, post-season and off-season! The Broncos made it to post-season! YAY!”

(Little guy sure showed me! And wasn’t nervous for the rest of his visit.)

An Order Of Ice And Fire

, | Hattiesburg, MS, USA | At The Checkout, Awesome Customers, Food & Drink

(I am ordering food through the drive-thru:)

Carhop: “Here’s your hot fudge sundae. Sorry, it’s a bit melted.”

Me: “That’s fine.”

Carhop: “And here’s your molten cake sundae. Sorry, it’s a bit melted as well.”

Me: “Well, it’s got hot fudge.”

Carhop: “Yeah, but people complain a lot that the ice cream doesn’t look a certain way.”

Me: *sarcastically* “How dare you mix hot and cold because I ordered it!”
