A Poser By Any Other Name

| Crystal River, FL, USA | Liars & Scammers, Uncategorized

Customer: "Excuse me…how much is this?"

Me: "$24.99."

Customer: "But the sign says it’s $19.99! Ha! So you have to give it to me for that!”

Me: "Ma’am, the sign says $19.99 and up."

Customer: "But it’s the law!”

Me: "Ma’am, I assure you, it is $24.99."

Customer: "Well, I’m a lawyer, and it’s the law!"

Me: "You’re not a lawyer, are you?"

Customer: "No. How did you know that?"

Me: "There is no such law."

Customer: “You’re too smart. I just thought I’d try to scare you into changing the price."

Yukon Not Spend It

| Alberta, Canada | Canada, Money, Tourists/Travel, Uncategorized

Customer: "Why is my credit card being denied?"

Me: "Is it an American credit card?"

Customer: "Yes, I’m from Texas and I’m traveling to Alaska."

Me: "Credit card companies sometimes block purchases made in other countries if they don’t know you’re traveling."

Customer: "But I’m not in another country."

Me: "This is Canada, sir."

Customer: "But it’s on the way to Alaska."

Me: "I know sir, but it’s still another country, so you probably need to call your credit card company."

Customer: "What stupid country is this?!"

Me: "Actually sir, it would happen with any country you travel to because it’s a safety feature for your own security."

Customer: "Well, if Canada wasn’t in the way of Alaska, this wouldn’t be a problem!"

Smoking Rate Gets Smokers Irate

| Tennessee, USA | Hotels & Lodging, Uncategorized

Customer: “I have a smoking fee on my bill but I didn’t smoke in the room!”

Me: “Actually, ma’am, the security officer last night saw you with a lit cigarette in your hand when he went to your room last night.”

Customer: “Well, it wasn’t me! I didn’t smoke last night!”

Me: “I’m really sorry, but if anyone smoked in the room last night we have to charge you for it since it was your room.”

Customer: “But even if it wasn’t me?”

Me: “Yes, ma’am. Security said that someone was smoking in the room.”

Customer: “But I put it out right away! I didn’t smoke any more after that!”

Me: “So you did actually smoke in the room then?”

Customer: “Can I just pay half the fee since I only smoked half the cigarette?”
