Different Degrees Of Understanding

| CA, USA | Popular, Uncategorized

(A customer asked me an irrelevant question I didn’t know the answer to…)

Me: “I’m really not sure. I’m sorry.”

Customer: “Well, I guess that’s why you’re a waitress.”

Me: *in disbelief* “I actually have a Bachelor’s degree in education.”

Customer: “So you think having a degree automatically makes you smart?”

Me: “Well, you seem to think that being a waitress automatically makes you trashy.”

(She sat there speechless for a few seconds, and then demanded to speak to my manager about my rudeness. Other customers vouched for me and I did not get in trouble.)

(I work as a cashier at a well-known fast food restaurant. The customer I was serving asked for his food to take out.)

Me: “Would you like a cup holder for your drinks?”

Customer: “Is that the thing that goes on top?”

Me: “No, sir, that’s a lid…”

(I have a moment to take a sip of my drink before the next customer comes to the counter, so I take it.)

Customer: “You know, you really shouldn’t be drinking that tea. It’s really bad for you.”

Me: “Thanks for the information. How can I help you?”

Customer: “Can I get a pack of USA 100s, non-menthol?”

Blood Still Flowing Where It Counts

| Sacramento, CA, USA | Uncategorized

(I am taking vitals on an elderly patient, preparing him to see the doctor. His wife is in the exam room with us. I’ve just taken his blood pressure, which comes out unusually low.)

Me: “[Patient], your blood pressure is rather low.”

Patient: “Well… you just need to get sexier, then!”

(His poor wife was mortified, but I thought it was hilarious!)

Lack of Register Does Not Register, Part 5

| Long Island, NY, USA | Uncategorized

(I work at a clothing store. I am assigned to recover and help customers at the kid’s section. It’s not unusual for customers to make up baby outfits and leave them over piles of clothes on the display tables. I notice a woman who has left a mess on one of the tables and just walked away. I assume she just didn’t like the clothes and left them.)

Customer: *comes back from the other side of the area* “Excuse me? What are you doing? I wasn’t done!”

Me: “Oh, I’m sorry; I just assumed you were done.”

Customer: “Well, don’t! I wasn’t done!”

Me: “I’m so sorry.” *steps away*

Customer: “But I wasn’t done!”

(A little later, the customer approaches me. There are several signs in neon paper on the registers at the kids section saying that they’re closed and customers need to pay at over the adult side. I notice the woman stands right next to a sign.)

Me: “Oh, I’m sorry, these registers are closed but you can pay over at the other side!”

Customer: “Can’t you just ring me here?!”

Me: “I can’t, I’m sorry. These registers are closed.”

Customer: “Just open it!”

Me: “I’m sorry, I’m not authorized but my coworkers will gladly complete your purchase at the adult section.”

Customer: “Oh, my god!” *goes away mumbling*

(A few minutes later this conversation happens through our headsets:)

Coworker: “Uh, so this lady was complaining about a girl refusing to ring her items or something.”

Me: “Yeah, it was me. She got mad because the registers were closed. I sent her over.”

Manager: *laughing* “Oh, we know her. It’s always the same with her. She leaves a mess and finds new ways to complain every time she comes. That’s why we left you all by yourself over there; no one wants to deal with her. Sorry!”
