Some Customers Have Good Taste

, | New York City, NY, USA | At The Checkout, Awesome Customers, Food & Drink, Top

(I work at a fast food chain. I have just finished dealing with an absolutely horrendous customer, but I cannot take a break yet. My boss is sympathetic, but a little strict about breaks. I steel myself for the next customer.)

Me: “Hi, how can I help you?”

Customer: “One second, sorry.”

(She is writing something on a slip of paper.)

Customer: “Okay, thanks for waiting. Can I get some sweet tea? Also, that last guy was a jerk. Here!”

(She hands me the piece of paper. It says: ‘notalwaysright.com’.)

Customer: “If you need to feel better, then go here!”

(Thank you so much, miss! I had never heard of this site before today, and I’m so glad you were kind to me!)

Good Honest Coffee

| Canada | Awesome Customers, Food & Drink

Regular: “Is [coworker] here?”

Me: “No, is there something I can do for you?”

Regular: “Oh, I was just here yesterday and I was chatting with [coworker], and didn’t pay for my espresso. I’d like to pay for it now.”

(I look at him in shock.)

Regular: “Why are you looking at me like that?”

Me: “Because most people aren’t that honest.”

Regular: “Well, they should be; what’s so difficult about it?”

Me: “Nothing, but it’s unusual. Would you like your usual along with it?”

Regular: “Yes, please, but make sure you charge me for yesterday’s as well.”

(The girl I am working with and I are just awestruck. It puts us in a good mood for the rest of the day.)

Looney For The Tunes

| MI, USA | Awesome Customers

(I work at a feed mill. I am helping a customer load her car.)

Me: “Is there anything else I can help you with, ma’am?”

Customer: “No, I’m good.”

(As she is getting in her car, I notice a Looney Toons special edition jacket.)

Me: “That is a very nice jacket, ma’am. My father has one just like it, and I absolutely love it.”

Customer: “Does he have this exact one?”

Me: “Yes he does.”

Customer: “Very cool.”

(She proceeds to drive away, and I get back to my work. As it is nearing closing time, I see her pull back in the lot.)

Me: “Did I forget something, ma’am?”

(She exits the car holding the jacket.)

Customer: “Here, please try this on. If it fits, you may have it.”

(I am absolutely thunder struck by this, so I try it on. It fits perfectly.)

Customer: “I am glad it fits you. I have had this jacket for sometime now, and I am glad to see it go to someone who can appreciate it more than I do!”
