Obviously, She Needs Food For Thought

| North Brunswick, NJ, USA | Right | July 26, 2011

(A truck flips over down the street and takes out a power line, knocking out the power to our restaurant. We are all getting ready to start cleaning up and calling it an early day until a customer walks in. Note that all the lights are off.)

Customer: “I tried calling to place an order and you guys didn’t answer the phone!”

Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am. Our power is out, so our phones don’t work.”

Customer: “Well, that’s okay. Can I just order a chicken lori dinner?”

Me: “Well, I’m afraid that’s not possible at the moment. We have no electricity in the kitchen and there aren’t any windows back there. Plus, our ovens and grilles have electric starters.”

Customer: “You guys are open though, correct?”

Me: “Only for a little while longer while we clean up.”

Customer: “Well, then, can you at least make me a pizza?”

Me: “I don’t think you really understand. We lost power. We can’t cook anything right now.”

Customer: “Ugh, what kind of pizza place is this? Can I at least have one of the slices on the counter?”

Me: “Sure, we can do that.”

(I pick her slices out and start putting them in a box.)

Customer: “You aren’t even going to heat them up or anything?”

Me: “Ma’am, I honestly don’t know how much clearer I can make this. The power is out. Anything that uses electricity is currently not working. Our stoves cannot be started.”

Customer: “Fine! Forget it. I’m never coming back here again. You people are useless!”

Like My Antiques, I Need Love Too

, | St. Louis, MO, USA | Right | July 26, 2011

(We rent out individual spaces to people. A new dealer has just moved in and is about to leave the store. Note that she is about 70 years old and I am 30.)

Dealer: “Okay, I guess you have to inspect my bags before I leave.”

Me: “Yeah, we do.”

(It looks like a bunch of moving supplies and paper.)

Dealer: “Are you going to frisk me?”

Me: “Pardon?”

Dealer: “Well, it says you check everything at the door. I figured you’d check me too.”

Me: “Ma’am, we check your bags and boxes, but not you. I’m not going to frisk you, as that is inappropriate.”

Dealer: “Well, it’s been a while for me, dear. You can feel what you want.”

Me: “I’d like to keep my job without a sexual harassment complaint on the record. We’ll just see you next time.”

Dealer: “Oh, come on! It’s been so long!”

(Her 80 year-old husband is standing there laughing the entire time.)

More Than You Bargained For

| Pearsall, TX, USA | Right | July 26, 2011

(A customer purchases some items at the checkout. While walking out, he sees a sign that one of his items is on sale.)

Customer: “Excuse me, this sign says this glue is for $4.99, but the shelf says $5.99.”

Me: *looks at receipt* “Well sir, I charged you $4.99.”

Customer: “But the shelf said $5.99.”

Me: “But I charged you $4.99.”

Customer: “But the shelf said $5.99.”

Me: “Okay, give me another dollar.”

(The customer thinks for a second, then walks out of the store without saying another word.)

Thorry Potter & The Norsely Hallows

| Charlottesville, VA, USA | Right | July 26, 2011

Me: “Hi, can I help you?”

Customer: “Yes, I’m looking for this movie and I was wondering if you are playing it.”

Me: “Sure! Whats the name of the movie you’re looking for?”

Customer: “It’s that one about Thor. I don’t remember what it’s called.”

Me: “Oh, you mean Thor?”

Customer: “No, I really don’t think that was it…”
