The Price Is Fright

| Dublin, Ireland | Food & Drink, Money, Movies & TV

Customer: “I’ll have two medium popcorns, two cokes, and packet of sweets, please”.

Me: “No problem, sir. That’ll be €20.”

Customer: “Are you f****** serious?”

Me: “I’m sorry?”

Customer: “That price is ridiculous. I’m not paying that”

Me: “That’s okay, sir. If you are unhappy with the prices there is a shop across the street.”

Customer: “Do you know what you are? You’re a f****** criminal. How dare you charge those prices!”

Me: “I’m sorry, sir, but I don’t make the prices.”

Customer: *pauses for a moment* “Yeah, well… I don’t make the prices either.”

Me: *completely confused* “So, would you like your items or should I put them back?”

Customer: “Well, it seems I don’t have a choice. I guess I’ll have to buy them now. Oh, and I’ll also take a nachos.”

That’s The Way The Cookie Repeatedly Crumbles

| Pittsburgh, PA, USA | At The Checkout, Extra Stupid, Money

(I’m a cashier at the local grocery store. Today I’m training a new employee on how to use the register. A woman comes up with a box of cookies. I scan it.)

Woman: “No! The price on those is too high. Cancel it.”

Me: “Okay.”

(I cancel it.)

Woman: “Scan it again.”

Me: “Um, okay?”

(I scan it again.)

Woman: “No, the price is still too high. Cancel it.”

Me: “Uh…”

(I cancel it again.)

Woman: “Scan it again.”

Me: “Ma’am, the price isn’t going to change.”

Woman: “You don’t know that!”

(This goes on for several minutes to the point where I have to call a manager over to deal with. Eventually she leaves, without the cookies.)

Trainee: “Did that really just happen?”

Me: “Yup.”

Trainee: “Is customer service always like this?”

Me: “Yup.”

Trainee: “I should get my stupidity vaccine updated, shouldn’t I?”

Me: “Yup.”

A Cent-less Amount

| St. Clairsville, OH, USA | Crazy Requests, Money

Customer: “How much is it to copy something?”

Me: “Is it in color or black and white?”

Customer: “Black and white.”

Me: “It’s eleven cents.”

Customer: “How much is it for two copies?”

Me: “Twenty-two cents.”

Customer: “How much is it for five copies?”

Me: “Fifty-five cents.”

Customer:” How much is it for 10 copies?”

Me: “It’s still going to be eleven cents per copy.”

Customer: “Well, is there a break in the price after so many copies?”

Me: “Yes. After 1001 copies, the price goes down to ten cents a copy.”

Customer: “Oh, no! I just need two copies!”
