Maybe Crazy Is In Her Nature

| Portland, OR, USA | Right | November 8, 2013

(I have fairly long hair, which is dyed dark forest green. I am looking in the produce section, when someone grabs a handful of my hair and pulls on it as hard as they can. I cry out in pain and turn around to see an old woman glaring at me.)

Me: “That hurt! Why would you do that?”

Old Woman: “That didn’t hurt you, ya’ big baby! Anyone can see that hair ain’t real!”

(She reaches for my hair again; I back up and almost knock over a small wire display rack.)

Me: “Don’t touch me!”

(By now we’ve attracted the attention of a nearby manager.)

Manager: “Is there a problem here?”

Old Woman: “Yes there is! This is a natural market! I come here to see natural things, and that hair ain’t natural! I want her out of here!”

Manager: “I can’t do that, but I can call the police because I’m pretty sure pulling someone’s hair counts as assault.”

(The old lady looks stunned, and hurries away. The manager makes sure I’m alright before she goes on her way.)

Should Take Stock Of Their Stupidity

| Ottawa, ON, Canada | Right | November 8, 2013

Customer: “Excuse me; do you have this item in a smaller size?”

Me: *checking computer* “Unfortunately we don’t, but [other location 15 minutes away] is showing several. Would you like us to bring one over for you within the next couple of days? Or, if you like, we can call and have them hold it if you want to go there.”

Customer: “We were there two weeks ago and they didn’t have it. Your computer must be wrong.”

Me: “I’ll of course call to confirm their totals, but since we get stock in all the time it is possible that they have received some between then and now.”

Customer: “What do you mean, you ‘get stock all the time?'”

Me: “Well, every once in a while we get shipments to replace anything we’ve sold out of, or to bring in new merchandise.”

Customer: “That’s stupid.”

Slow To Register

| London, England, UK | Right | November 8, 2013

(I am going to a self-service checkout in the shop. I can see that the screen says it is for cards only. In addition, there is a sign plastered to the machine saying the same.)

Employee: “Just to let you know: that’s card only.”

Me: “Okay.”

(I put my goods down. He is still looking at me, so I look up.)

Employee: “You won’t be able to use cash.”

Me: “…I know; it’s alright. I have a card on me.”

Employee: “Sorry. You’d be surprised how many people will try to pay in cash despite all the warnings.”

Me: “Really?”

Employee: “Yeah, it happens all the time.”

(I scan my first item. The machine immediately says in a loud voice: ‘This till will only accept cards. Do you wish to continue?’ I stare at the employee, who walks off, laughing. My faith in humanity went down that day.)
