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?

The Lesser Known Brother

| OH, USA | Holidays, Theme Of The Month

(I work for an upscale, quirky, grocery chain, and they encourage us to dress up for Halloween. I have a full Indiana Jones outfit: fedora, jacket, bullwhip, satchel with a gold idol. A tipsy-to-drunk group of college kids came in to resupply, and one of the frat bros points at me.)

Bro: “It’s F***ing Idaho Jones!”

Halloweird

| CA, USA | Family & Kids, Holidays, Theme Of The Month

(I work at a bakery located in a mall. Since we’re considered a “family mall” we have a lot of events for kids, like all day trick-or-treating on Halloween. My first Halloween they have me handing out candy to long lines of waiting kids and parents. A mom and dad with their baby come up.)

Me: “Here you go!”

(I hand the baby a piece of candy and the mom snaps a picture. I smile and say goodbye while going back to handing out candy to the other children. A few minutes later they come back, gesturing towards their baby.)

Me: “Oh, ma’am, I can’t give out more than one…”

(They just smiled and nodded at me and didn’t say anything, just looking at me and then back at the kid. At that point I was pretty sure they didn’t understand a word I was saying. Suddenly, they stuck the baby next to my head and the mom snapped another picture. They smiled and left, very excited. I guess I was baby’s first trick-or-treat. I like to think that in a few years when the little girl looks back, she’s going to have a good laugh at the confused look on my face.)

Won’t Be Tricked Out Of His Treat

, | Chicago, IL, USA | Awesome Workers, Food & Drink, Holidays, Theme Of The Month

(I am shopping with my parents at a home improvement store during the Halloween season. There is a skeleton on display that has candy on it.)

Dad: *reaches for candy*

Mom: “Don’t take that! It’s for display!”

Dad: “It looks like samples to me.”

(We head to the cash registers to make a purchase. A woman who appears to be the manager is with the cashier.)

Dad: “Just curious, is the candy on the Halloween display free?”

Manager: “I would expect…”

Dad: *to Mom* “Ha! I told you!”

Mom: “You gonna go back and get some?”

Dad: “Nah.”

Manager: “I’ll go get you some.”

(The manager actually goes and gets us some candy.)

Dad: “Thank you!”
