Category: Spouses & Partners

Some stupid customers are married to other stupid customers. Some just drag their not-so-stupid other halves along for the ride to suffer in silence. Sometimes they don’t suffer in silence. One thing is true for all three, they’re all hilarious.

Not Skirting Around The Issue

(An older customer, maybe in his 50s, walks in to my female clothing store.)

Me: “Hello! How are you today?”

Customer: “Don’t worry. I’m not a cross-dresser or anything. I’m just looking for my wife”

(He says the first half in a very derogatory tone of voice.)

Me: *smiles sweetly* “Well, if it’s any consolation, I think you’d look great in a skirt!”

(The customer glares at me and leaves!)

The Sad (Pro)State Of Service

(I work as a waitress in a small and very busy beach side cafe which attracts a somewhat pretentious crowd.)

New Colleague: “I’m not sure what that man at table one wanted. He was mumbling a lot.”

Me: “Oh, don’t worry. I’ll ask.”

Customer: “Oi, you! Can I get the bill?!” *does ticking bill sign in air*

Me: “When you’re ready, sir, just come to the front and we can sort it out up there.”

Customer: “Yeah, I know that but I want the bill here.”

Me: *grits teeth* “… Sure.”

(I bring the customer his bill. The customer’s wife waves me aside as her husband exits with a weird waddle in his step.)

Wife: “Don’t worry, dear. No man is pleasant to be around after a prostate exam.”
