Caught Red-Solo-Cupped

| MI, USA | At The Checkout, Bad Behavior

(A family has just finished checking out their smaller-sized order and left their shopping cart in front of the u-scan. I don’t want to take care of the cart just yet, but decide not to ignore it when I see they also left an empty drink cup in the seat.)

Me: *follows them out the door with their cart* “Hey, guys, did you want your drink?”

Woman: *stops and stares at me* “Oh yeah, um, thank you.” *reluctantly takes her empty drink cup and walks away*

Me: *cheerfully* “You’re welcome! You guys have a good night!”

(It was so awkward, but so worth it!)

Decency On A Diet

| IL, USA | Bad Behavior, Food & Drink

(I work as a cashier in a very well-known retail store. By the registers we have refrigerators that hold soda, juice, and water. Two women decide to come through my line, and as I am ringing them up, they decide to add two sodas to their order. They’re mother and daughter. I finish their order and am about to move on to the next person. I notice the daughter has already opened her soda and taken a sip. That’s when she notices what type it is.)

Daughter: “Wait, this isn’t diet.”

Mother: “I thought I grabbed one for you.”

(The daughter then proceeded to put the soda she had already opened back into the refrigerator. She grabbed a diet version of the drink and left with her mother before I could react and say something.)

Not The Prettiest Of Flowers

| Houston, TX, USA | Bad Behavior

(I deliver arrangements for flowers. I take a large flower arrangement to an office where it’s supposed to be sent.)

Me: “Hi, I have a delivery for [Woman]—”

Woman: “No, I don’t want to buy anything. Shut the door on your way out.”

Me: “Ma’am, the flowers are already pai—”

Woman: “Did you not hear me? GET THE F*** OUT! I’m not buying s***!”

(Getting annoyed I look at the enclosure card to see who purchased them. The card read “Happy Birthday, Love Jack.”)

Me: “They’re from someone named Jack. They wanted to wish you a happy birthday. As I was trying to say before you kept interrupting me, they’re already paid for.”

(She turned bright red as I set the vase on her desk.)

Not Very Closed Minded, Part 22

| PA, USA | Bad Behavior, Time

(The store closes at 10:00 pm, and it’s 9:59. I am straightening while my coworker rings up customers. Two women are the last customers in line.)

Customer #1: “Oh, look, clearance items!”

Customer #2: “I love a good sale!”

(They walk away and start browsing through the clearance bins. The “We are closed” announcement is made. Five minutes later…)

Customer #1: “I’ll take these books, and this item from clearance. Make sure to ring it up as 75% off!”

Cashier: “Ma’am, clearance items are currently 50% off.”

Customer #2: “Really? That’s not much of a deal. Maybe you shouldn’t get it.”

Customer #1: “Hmm. I don’t know… How much will it be with my discount card?

(My coworker totals up her savings, then the total cost without her card, then the cost if the customer “waited till the clearance was better.” It is now ten after, and the manager has come out to see why the register’s still on.)

Customer #1: “Okay, I guess I’ll take it.”

(They are rung up, and walking towards the door. Her hand is on the knob.)

Customer #1: “You know what? I’ve changed my mind. I don’t think I want this after all. Can I return it?”

Manager: “Let me get that done quickly for you, seeing as how we are CLOSED.”

Customer #2: “Oh, you guys have chocolate!”

(The manager rings the return lightning-fast, while Customer #2 looks at the chocolate.)

Manager: “There, you’re set. Have a lovely ni—”

Customer #1: “Is your cafe still open?”

Manager: “No, as we have been closed for twenty minutes.”

Customer #1: “Dang, I wanted some coffee. Well, I have to go to the bathroom. Just a minute.”

(She meanders towards the restrooms, pausing every few steps to look at a display. Customer #2 stays at the registers, studying the chocolate. Manager and Cashier quickly close out the register.)

Customer #2: “How much would these candy bars be, if I wanted one?”

Manager: “Ma’am, the prices are on the display sign. And we couldn’t sell you one anyway, because we are CLOSED.”

Customer #2: *huffs as [Customer #1] returns from the restroom* “Come on, they don’t want our money! He won’t even sell me a d*** candy bar!”

(They finally left, a half-hour after we closed, having spent a grand total (post-return) of $3.75.)

A Bad-Behavior Burrito

| PA, USA | At The Checkout, Bad Behavior, Bigotry

(I’m at a place where you pick out your food and have it made to order. I’ve just told the woman I want a burrito, when a man comes up behind me.)

Man: “Take my order first!”

Worker: “I’ll be with you next.”

Man: “I need to be first.” *then to me* “Stand down.”

Me: “What?”

Man: “Stand down! I’m going before you.”

(By this time the worker has the beans and rice on my burrito and passes it to the next worker, who asks me what other ingredients I want. The man totally is ignoring the first worker who is asking for his order, and instead is yelling at the worker helping me.)

Man: “Don’t listen to her! She doesn’t know what she wants! She doesn’t know her place.”

(I ignore him and proceed to the checkout, I hear him yelling at the first worker.)

Man: “You should have taken me first! You b****, don’t you understand!”

(Next thing I know the manager comes out and asks the guy to leave. He lunges across the sneeze guard at him. The other worker says they are calling the cops.)

Man: “You can’t call the cops! I am an American! I have a coupon! I have to be here! You should have taken me first. I have a coupon.”

(He goes over and starts throwing all the napkins, straws, etc. on the floor, and grabs a patron’s food off their table and flings it. We are all kind of trapped because he is blocking the door. Next he sees me and starts yelling at me.)

Man: “Had to have your precious burrito, you b****. Eat it! Choke on it! I won’t save you if you choke!”

(He grabbed the bag with my food in it and started swinging it around, I ran behind the counter where the employees were to get away, A security guard came in not moments later and forced the guy out, still raving about his coupon and saying I should choke on the burrito. Ironically, I got a coupon for a free meal from the manager who felt bad for me.)
