There’s Safe And Then There’s Safer

| Pennsylvania, USA | Right | August 5, 2011

(Our college is located in one of the top three safest metropolitan areas in the US for a few years running. We’ve just checked-in a team of high school girls for a huge sports tournament.)

Chaperone: “There’s no way my team can stay here! Our rooms are motel-style. Anything could happen to our girls! How do I know they’ll be safe?”

Me: “Ma’am, we’ve never experienced any thefts or any other crimes at this hotel. This entire town is quite safe, I assure you.”

Chaperone: “That’s not good enough! How do you know nothing will happen?”

(I look down at the guest’s reservation to notice their team is from the Bronx.)

Me: “Well, ma’am, this isn’t exactly the Bronx.”

(The guest’s jaw drops. Not knowing what to say, she walks away and doesn’t complain again during her stay.)

| San Francisco, CA, USA | Right | August 5, 2011

Customer: “Excuse me, where is the coochie?”

Me: *confused* “I’m sorry?”

Customer: “Coochie. The store.”

Me: “Oh! You mean Gucci? It’s just a couple blocks–”

Customer: “No, no!”

(She points at Coach bag.)

Customer: “Coochie!”

Line Is Law

| British Columbia, Canada | Right | August 4, 2011

(I am working in a buffet-style restaurant where customers line up for the food.)

Supervisor: “Can you go refill the napkins? We’re all out.”

Me: “Sure.”

(I walk over to the line wearing my work uniform and my ID card prominently displayed.)

Me: “Excuse me, I just need to refill the napkins.”

Customer: “No problem.”

Customer #2: “Why the f*** does everyone keep cutting the line?”

Me: “Sir, I work here. I am just refilling the napkins.”

Customer #2: “Well, that is no excuse! If you work here, you should know to wait your turn!”

A State Of Mindlessness, Part 3

| Montana, USA | Right | August 4, 2011

(A customer with a thick Southern-US accent comes in, starts looking at me and frowns.)

Customer: “Hey, you.”

Me: “Hello, madam. How may I help you?”

Customer: “Do you understand me?”

Me: “Why, yes, I do.”

Customer: *sighs* “But my friend told me all you stupid hicks up here speak Spanish!”

Me: “Well, that’s a bit odd. We aren’t located anywhere near Mexico, Spain or anywhere in Europe.”

Customer: “Liar! Just so you know, I went to college and I know d*** well where this state is!”

Me: “I’m sorry?”

Customer: “You b****! You ‘re a stupid hick who thinks she knows everything! I know d*** well where this state is!”

Me: “I’m quite certain Montana is located in the northwest corner of the USA.”

Customer: “Ugh! Make me teach the brainless rednecks! It’s not in the northwest, you dumb f***! It’s in the south, by the country Idaho!”

Me: *speechless*

(The customer rolls her eyes and storms out of the store.)
