27 Stresses

| Omaha, NE, USA | Right | March 30, 2011

(It is prom season. We have a lot of girls coming in to try on dresses. Three girls have been trying on heaps of dresses. They finally select the ones they want.)

Me: “I see you’ve made your final selection! If you just bring them to the register, I’ll be happy to ring you up.”

(Their mother walks over.)

Mother: “Oh, what lovely dresses!”

Girl: “Yeah. We had to go through a lot of dresses before we found anything decent.”

(The mother gets a weird look on her face.)

Mother, to me: “Excuse me, miss?”

Me: “Yes, ma’am?”

Mother: “Are those the dressing rooms?”

Me: “Yes.”

Mother: “Do you mind if I run in there for a minute?”

Me: “Go ahead!”

(The mother walks in, and sees all the dresses on the floor of the dressing rooms. She comes out fuming.)

Mother: “You girls march right in there, pick up every dress, and hang them back up! Right now!”

Girl: “Why? It’s her job!”

Mother: “I did not raise a bunch of pigs! Get in there now, or you won’t be going to prom!”

Data Protection Can Be Hellish

| Champaign, IL, USA | Right | March 30, 2011

(I notice a very well dressed woman checking out laptops.)

Me: “Can I help you with anything, ma’am?”

Customer: “Yes, please. Could you tell me about the facial password feature on these laptops?”

Me: “Sure. Certain laptops we carry can use the webcam to recognize several facial features unique to each person. Eye distance, mouth width, things like that.”

Customer: “Well then, that’s it.”

Me: “Ma’am?”

Customer: “The apocalypse is coming.”

Me: “The apocalypse?”

Customer: “Yes. See, the Bible says that when the government starts taking over our personal lives, the apocalypse will come.”

Me: “Ma’am, this has nothing to do with the government. It’s just another security feature.”

(She pats me on the shoulder.)

Customer: “That’s okay, son. I speak to God every day. I’m glad to know that when I’m up in heaven, you’ll be down here burning in hell.”

Customer: “I need to return this card.”

Me: “Why?”

Customer: “I bought it for my wife’s birthday. It’s a very nice card, but I missed the last line.”

(I look at the card, and it reads ‘to the man I love’. The refund was given.)

| Annapolis, MD, USA | Right | March 29, 2011

Me: “Okay. Let me look you up in our system.”

(The customer isn’t coming up under the phone number, last name, or zip code.)

Customer: “Oh. When I signed up, I didn’t put that info down.”

Me: “Why not?”

Customer: “I don’t want you guys mailing me junk!”
