Stupid customers in stories are bad enough. However, dealing with a customer’s health issues may be hazardous to your own health! Please consult your doctor before continuing.

Me: “Thank you for calling pediatrics, how can I help you?”

Caller: “Hi, yeah, I saw my doctor today and she recommended I use lotrimin on my daughter’s yeast infection diaper rash but I’m at the store and the bottle says not to use on children under two except under the advice of a doctor. So I’m not sure what to do now…”

Cause For Pregnant Pause, Part 9

| TX, USA | At The Checkout, Health & Body

(I am a cashier with a long line of customers. Note: the store I work at requires us to wear an apron.)

Customer: “Look at you! When are you due?”

Me: “I’m not pregnant.”

(Awkward pause as I continue ringing through her items.)

Customer “Are you sure? Sometimes you can be pregnant and not know it.”

Me: “Yes, I’m sure. I am not pregnant.”

Customer: “Well, I think you are pregnant. You should go get a test because I know you are pregnant.”

Me: “Trust me, I am really not pregnant.”

Customer: “Maybe you are and you’re just in denial.”

Me: “No. I am NOT pregnant!”

Customer: “But you could—”

Me: “Ma’am, I am not pregnant; I am just fat.”

Customer: “…”

Me: *finishes transaction* “Thank you and have a nice day.”

Customer: “Congratulations on the baby!”

Dropping The Change You Want To See In The World

| Berkeley, CA, USA | At The Checkout, Bad Behavior, Health & Body

(I’m ringing up a frail, elderly customer who is having a hard time getting her money out, when she drops a quarter onto the floor. She turns to the customer behind her in line, who is in her late 30s.)

Customer #1: “Excuse me, do you mind helping me pick that up?”

(Customer #2 sighs, but bends down and picks it up for her.)

Customer #1: “Thank you so much.”

(I continue ringing her up, when she drops a coin again.)

Customer #1: *again to Customer #2* “I’m so sorry, do you mind helping me again?”

Customer #2: “Okay, but if this keeps happening, maybe you should ask somebody else.”

Customer #1: “I’m sorry; I have arthritis and—”

Customer #2: “Yeah, well, I have my own problems, lady.”

Me: *speechless*
