Category: At The Checkout

The customer has seemed normal and maybe even intelligent throughout the shopping purchase. But then they get to the checkout and as soon as human interaction is required it all falls apart. The checkout operators really are our first line of defense against the stupid customer!

Me: “M—”

Customer: “—also-a-number-seven-with-a-diet-coke-large-and-an-apple-salad.”

New Sales Announced On Wikileaks

| Norway | At The Checkout, Awesome Customers, Awesome Workers

(A customer is looking at a particular item, and wants to know the price.)

Me: “That’s 99 kroner.”

Customer: “Oh, that’s a bit pricey I think..”

Me: “It’s a secret but I’ll tell you. This item is coming on half price on Monday, you could come back and make a good deal on it.”

(The customer starts looking around and acting like I just told her a national secret wondering if anybody else heard it.)

Customer: “Okay, thank you! WHOOPS!” *whispers* “T-thank you!”

(She ran out before I could say anything else.)
