Misunderstanding ‘Friendly Service’

| Pittsburgh, PA, USA | Uncategorized

Me: “Okay, your total will be $**.”

Customer: *pays with card*

Me: “May I see ID, please? Your card is not signed.”

Customer: “No! That’s an invasion of privacy. I don’t want you to know my name and try to find me online.”

Me: “It’s company policy. I’m on camera, and your name is on here anyway.”

Customer: “Let me talk to your manager.”

Me: “I am the manager.”

Customer: “Fine! I don’t want any random friend requests!”

Me: “I’ll fight the urge, I promise.”

(Customer comes in to buy some more mice because hers aren’t breeding.)

Customer: “How do you tell if the mice are male or female?”

Me: “Well, the easiest way to tell is the males have quite prominent testicles.”

Customer: “I didn’t know mice had testicles!”

Me: “That’s probably why your mice aren’t breeding.”

(A younger teenager comes into the store with his dad.)

Customer: “My teacher says I need to get a book for school.”

Me: “What’s the title?”

Customer: “I think it was something like ‘Col-ij-it’. Yeah, that’s definitely it.”

Me: “How would you spell it?”

Customer: “C, O, L, I, J, I, T?”

(I search, and nothing comes up.)

Me: “Do you know the author?”

Customer: “I know it was a girl. Maybe like Maryanne? Something like that?”

Me: “Do you mean you need a Merriam-Webster Collegiate Dictionary?”

Customer: “I don’t know, but I’m not going to college or anything.”
