Even during the holidays, customers don’t seem to take a break. With that many extra light-bulbs around you’d think a few extra would appear above their heads?

Not Toying Around With His Christmas Spirit

| Wilmington, NC, USA | Holidays, Theme Of The Month

(As a cashier, I often like to joke with guests, especially if they are buying something that obviously is not for them. A young man has a cart with a crazy amount of clearance toys in it.)

Me: “These are all for you, right?”

Customer: *smiles* “No, I’m donating them to local kids in need.”

(Everyone in line commends him and he spends around $600. He most definitely made my Christmas.)

The Christmas Gift Of Foresight

| Rapid City, SD, USA | Holidays, Theme Of The Month

(It is Christmas Eve, about lunchtime. We’re a small business that offers gift certificates. I’ve already sold three of them by this call.)

Caller: “Yeah, I was looking at my boyfriend’s online statement and you charged him on the fourth and it looks like you’re trying to charge him again.”

Me: “…As of when?”

Caller: “Today!”

Me: “He… may have bought a gift certificate.”

Caller: “Oh…? OH! Okay, thank you.”

Go Checkout Your Own Christmas Spirit

| MO, USA | Holidays, Theme Of The Month

(It is Christmas Eve and I am waiting in line to check out with some items already on the belt. A woman with a basket come up to pass me.)

Woman: “Excuse me, I need to get through.”

(Thinking she is joining the man in front of me, I move aside for her. She instead starts making her own space by shoving my items back on the belt to place her items.)

Me: “Excuse me, what are you doing?”

Woman: “Well, I have less items than you and I’m in a hurry.”

Me: “Um, so go use a U-scan or please wait like everyone else!”

Woman: “Well! So much for the Christmas Spirit, a**-hole!”
