Time To Start A Relationship With A New Laptop

| PA, USA | Love/Romance, Technology

(I work in a computer store.)

Me: “Okay, so, what seems to be the problem with your laptop?”

Customer: “It won’t turn on and it smells like burnt plastic for some reason. I think the motherboard is fried.”

Me: “Let me take a look at it.”

(He removes it from the box and I am horrified to find that it appears to have been smashed and set on fire.)

Me: “So… a little fried, huh?”

Customer: “Yeah… my girlfriend and I broke up a week ago. So, can you fix it or do I have to buy a new one?”

(On the plus side, I made a sale that day.)

Beautiful Resolution

| Melbourne, VIC, Australia | Family & Kids, Love/Romance

(I’m the only female employee at a well known auto parts store. I’m at the register with a coworker of mine.)

Customer: *while my coworker rings him up* “You’re gorgeous! You’re very beautiful.”

Me: “Thanks.”

Customer: “No, seriously! You have beautiful eyes. You look like an old movie star. You’re beautiful.”

Me: *obviously uncomfortable at this stage* “Thank you.”

Customer: “You’re lovely. Oh, don’t be worried! I’m married.”

Me: *motioning to my coworker* “That guy? He’s my dad. Trust me, I’m not worried.”

(The customer walked away obviously embarrassed, but now awkwardly stuttering:)

Customer: “Well… your daughter is lovely!”

Flirt, Camera, Action

| USA | At The Checkout, Bizarre, Love/Romance, Popular, Rude & Risque, Technology

(I am filling in at a different branch on this particular day. A guy who looks old enough to be my dad walks up to my window.)

Me: “What can I help you with?”

Customer: “Yeah, I need to get a money order today.”

Me: “Sure thing. Do you have an account with us?”

Customer: “No.”

Me: “Okay, no problem, I’ll just need your ID and a few other pieces of information to get that done for you.”

Customer: “Ask away. I do this every month!”

(I quickly complete the transaction, as the customer is staring at me, and I am extremely uncomfortable. After I hand him the money order…)

Me: “Is there anything else I can help you with today?”

Customer: “I was also lookin’ for a cute girl…” *grins at me and leans in closer*

(I take a small step backward and try not to let my expression change.)

Me: “Is there anything else BANKING-related that I can help you with today?”

Customer: *visibly disappointed* “Well, no. That didn’t work, huh?”

Me: “Er… no.”

Customer: “Oh, well. At least that wasn’t on tape or anything. That would be really embarrassing.”

(Without saying a word, I point to the security camera above my head.)

Customer: *looks up, expression goes from disappointment to horror* “THOSE THINGS ACTUALLY WORK?!”

Me: “Yes, sir, they sure do.”

Customer: “NOW IT’S ON TAPE?!” *runs out the door*

Coworker: “What was THAT?!”

Me: *puts head down on counter* “I think it’s time for a break…”
