Serving The Grinch

| England, UK | At The Checkout, Bad Behavior, Popular

(I work in a cheap card shop that becomes so busy on Christmas Eve that the queue stretches around two aisles. A customer appears from the other end of the shop, approaches my till and shoves a card at me.)

Me: “Sorry, sir, the end of the queue is over there.”

Customer: *looks* “…and?”

Me: “So, you need to wait at the end of the queue.”

Customer: “I don’t do queues.”

(He looked very proud of himself, as if this was an extremely witty comment.)

Me: “Well, you’re going to have to ‘do queues’ just this once, because I’m not going to serve you when you pushed to the front.”

Customer: “But I only have one thing to pay for.”

Me: “So do the twenty-odd people standing behind you.”

Customer: *glares at me and goes to the end of the queue*

A Magnet For Stupidity

| Lancaster, England, UK | Bad Behavior, Hotels & Lodging

(This happens to my coworker. At 6:30 am, a guest storms up to the front desk and throws down his key card.)

Guest: “My d*** key doesn’t work anymore! It won’t work on the front door, it won’t work on the back door, and it won’t work on my room door! It doesn’t work at all!”

Coworker: “I’m sorry about that, sir. I’ll remake it for you right now.”

Guest: “What the h*** is wrong with it? It worked last night!”

Coworker: “Did you happen to put it near your cell phone?”

Guest: “Yeah, I guess. But what does that have to do with anything?”

Coworker: “Well, sir, when you put the card too close to your phone, that can cause it to demagnetize.”

Guest: “What? That’s stupid! Why do you have such ridiculous keys? I should be able to put my key wherever I want!”

Coworker: “I’m sorry, sir, but that’s just the way the keys are. There’s nothing we can do about it.”

Guest: “Well, too bad! I’m going to keep putting it by my phone! You’ll just have to make me a new one each day!”

(The guest grabs his new key and storms off. I’m not sure what he meant by “too bad,” since deliberately letting his key get decoded would only be an inconvenience for him, not us.)

I Believe The Flavor You’re Looking For Is ‘Irony’

| Lafayette, LA, USA | Lafayette, LA, USA | Bad Behavior, Food & Drink

(I’ve seen as many as three people a day do this…)

Customer: *picking through multi-flavored candy in order to only get the “good” flavors* “How come people keep picking through this and only taking the good flavors?!”
