Nothing Scarier Than Childbirth

| Budapest, Hungary | Crazy Requests, Health & Body, Movies & TV

(I am working in a cinema as a cashier. It is late at night, a few minutes before midnight. A very pregnant woman comes in.)

Me: “Good evening, madame, how can I help you?”

Customer: “Is [Horror Movie] scary?”

Me: “I don’t know; I haven’t seen it, but I suppose.”

Customer: “Okay, I’ll take one adult ticket.”

Me: “Okay. where do you want to sit?”

Customer: “I would like to sit near the stairs, because I’m in my ninth month and probably I will start labour.”

Me: “Do you want to talk to my manager about it? If you do start labour, won’t that be a problem?”

Customer: “No, thank you. I have three children. It happens all the time!”

A Piercing Critique On Your Prices

| Paris, France | Crazy Requests, Health & Body, Popular

(A young customers enters.)

Customer: “Hi, how much for an eyebrow piercing?”

Me: “Hi, it’s 40 Euros.”

Customer: *sadly* “But I have only 20…”

(This is something a lot of people try to do. It’s pretty annoying for us, because it’s just a loss of time and it’s insulting. They wouldn’t do that in another store.)

Me: “I’m sorry but there’s nothing I can do. We use sterile material, sterile gloves, sterile needles, sterile titanium jewelry. This has a certain cost and we have a rent to pay.”

Customer: “But I have only 20.”

Me: “You can pay with a [Credit Card] or withdraw at the ATM right here in the street.”

Customer: “I can’t. I’m on probation and this is my last 20.”

Me: “Maybe you shouldn’t spend them on a piercing, then?”

Customer: “I know there is a place where every piercing costs five Euros.”

Me: *staying calm* “Yes, there are some shops like that. I have to tell you that those shops are really dangerous; they pierce without gloves with non-sterilised jewelry and a lot of people get allergies and infections there. If you don’t have a lot of money, don’t go there.”

Customer: “Okay! Can you give me the directions to get there?”

Me: *shocked* “No! I’m sorry but no, I can’t send you to those scammers!”

Customer: *obviously not getting it* “Can you print me a map?”

Me: *giving up* “You will find a map right here in the subway. Have a nice day.”

Customer: “But you didn’t gave me the address!”

Me: “I won’t. Have a nice day, and please let me get back to work.”

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.”
