He Has A Computer Bug Up His A**

| Inland Empire, CA, USA | Bad Behavior, Crazy Requests, Popular, Technology, Wild & Unruly

Customer: *slams two broken laptops on counter* “Fix ’em.”

Me: “Um. Okay. What’s wrong with them?”

Customer: “I don’t know; that’s your job, not mine.”

Me: “Sure thing. Do you happen to have a warranty on these by chance?”

Customer: “I don’t know. Why?”

(At this point, I’m plugging both laptops into the wall under my desk via the chargers the customer has supplied, so I can attempt to boot them up.)

Me: “Well, these appear to be a little bit older. If they are out of warranty, we can work with you on services for rep—”

(The customer begins yanking on the power chords, which are now plugged in under the counter. The “bricks” on the chargers are swinging very close to my face. He yanks hard enough to free both chargers from the wall, and they come inches from smacking me in the face hard.)

Me: “Excuse me, sir, was that necessary?”

Customer: “I’m not paying you to fix my s***, you a**-hole! Fix it or I’m throwing them at you!”

(At this point, management has come over to the counter and asked the customer to leave. He looks right at me.)

Customer: “You want to go outside, buddy?”

Me: “Sir, are you serious?”

(The customer is escorted to the front of the door, detained by loss prevention, and the police are called. The manager comes up to me afterwards.)

Manager: “Did he come in like that? What just happened?”

This Is My Final (Sale) Warning

| KY, USA | Bad Behavior, Crazy Requests, Popular

(I work in a chain store that is going out of business and all contents of the store are being liquidated. Because of this, there are large signs posted around the store saying ‘All Sales Final.’ You can probably guess what happens.)

Customer: “I bought these lamps yesterday and they just don’t go in my living room. I need to return them.”

Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am, all sales are final.”

Customer: “What? I looked yesterday and didn’t see anything about it. Where are the signs?”

Me: “There are one by each register, one as you come in the door, three hanging from the ceiling, and it’s printed on your receipt.”

Customer: “Why didn’t someone point them out to me? This is ridiculous. I need to return them. They were expensive and I can’t use them!”

Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am, but I can’t take them back.”

Customer: “You should have better signs. How do you expect people to see them?”

Me: “I’m sorry you feel that way but there is nothing I can do.”

(The customer continues to rant for a few minutes while I keep repeating I can’t do anything. Finally she grabs her lamps and flounces out of the store, saving her worst threat for last.)

Customer: “I’m never shopping here again!”

Coworker: *to me* “We’re closing. Is that supposed to be a threat?”

Take The Money Or Bust

| Cornelius, OR, USA | Bad Behavior, Health & Body

(I work at a well known retail store as a cashier. I basically have a little box I stand in with one opening to step inside. I happen to be 4’11” with large breasts. And unfortunately this happens far too often.)

Me: “All right, your total is [total].”

(Older male customer pulls out his cash and hands it to me. But not to my open hand or place it on the counter. They try and hand the money to my breasts. I have to press myself back against the counter to try and get far enough away, but they usually move forward and follow me. After I take the money and the customer leaves one of my male coworkers comes up to me, shaking his head.)

Me: *shrugs* “I mean, I know the ‘girls’ are amazing and talented but I don’t think they can grab money on their own. They’re not THAT good.”
