Pumped For Revenge

| Edinburgh, Scotland, UK | Awesome Customers, Bizarre, Transportation

(A customer comes to the cash desk:)

Customer: “Pump six.”

Me: “That will be £20.01 please.”

Customer: “Twenty pounds … and a penny! Hah! You win this time pump, but I shall have my revenge.”

(He pays and then walks towards the door, cackling maniacally and waving his fist in the air. As he leaves he shouts:)

Customer: “REVENGE SHALL BE MINE, PUMP SIX. WHEN YOU LEAST EXPECT IT!”

Your Explanation Is Not Very Helpful

| AL, USA | Bizarre

(I walk into a craft store and see an older lady with her arms full of stuff heading for the carts.)

Me: “Let me get one of those for you!” *pull one out for her*

Lady: “Thank you! Can you tell me if this is all the wrapping paper you have, over on that aisle?”

Me: “I’m sorry, I don’t know that. I’m just a customer.”

Lady: “…but you got me a cart. You don’t work here? Why did you help me?”

Me: “I saw you had your arms full and my parents raised me to be helpful. You have a great day, now!”

Lady: “…but you helped me… You don’t work here… Why did you help…”

On The Need For Hazard Pay, Part 9

, | USA | Bizarre, Food & Drink, Health & Body

(I am in high school. I work at a fast food restaurant. Part of the uniform includes a hat or visor. On this day I am taking orders at the front register. I am handing back change to an older male customer who has been normal so far.)

Me: “Okay, sir, here is your change and your order will be ready in a sec.”

(I then go to take the next customer’s order when the older man grabs the brim of my hat and looks me directly in the eyes.)

Older Man: “Oh, I thought you had brown eyes.”

(A coworker then places his food on the tray and the man walks away without another word.)

Next Customer: “I promise I won’t touch you. I just want a burger.”
