Only Has Beef With Your Beef

| Long Beach, CA, USA | Right | May 17, 2017

(The leather store, which sells unfinished leather, craft supplies, etc., that I train in is next door to a very excellent little restaurant. The manager has strung a rope, clothesline-style, across the store above head level to hang the cowhide rugs on. A lady who had been eating lunch next door comes in after lunch to see what we sell. She looks around, and then spots the cow hide rugs hanging from their clothesline. She gets a look of horror.)

Customer: “That’s horrible! Those are from animals! You shouldn’t be allowed to sell awful things like that!”

(She was so horrified that she actually threw up. Specifically, she threw up HER HAMBURGER.)

Take A Perforated Page Out Of Their Book

| Denver, CO, USA | Right | May 17, 2017

Me: “Hello, ma’am, can I help you find something?”

Customer: “Yes, I’m looking for a notebook with perforated page. Does this have perforated pages? I can’t find where it says.”

Me: *I open the notebook and see that it has perforated pages* “Yes, it does. See?” *points out the perforated lines*

Customer: “No, it’s not perforated because it doesn’t say on the information on the back cover.”

Me: *points out the perforations again* “Just because it doesn’t list it doesn’t mean they are not perforated.”

Customer: “It’s not perforated; I’m going over to another store to find one.”

(She left the store, then came back an hour later and had the exact same interaction with a coworker.)

Gotta Give Them Credit (Cards) For Trying

, , , | Miami, FL, USA | Right | May 16, 2017

I work in a home improvement store that has a store points card and a store credit card. We had just opened a new location and therefore have a lot of new staff who aren’t as experienced at catching scammers.

Two days in a row a man has come in and bought an expensive grill with a fake credit card. However, because of how we process payments this isn’t brought to our attention until the next day when the accounting department notices several big purchases did not go through. However the third day we are already on alert and because of our security cameras we know what he looks like and thankfully, one of the senior staff members has the pleasure of interacting with him.

She immediately becomes suspicious when the man starts asking about the same model of grill that has been stolen. While she pretends to look up information on the grill she actually looks for his picture in our company email and identifies him.

She doesn’t want to scare him away or give him time to leave by calling the police so instead she sells him the grill…

… and the company credit card.

She convinces him to open a card and so he willingly fills in an application with his full name, address, social, etc.

After he leaves she contacts the police, gives them all the information including the CCTV footage, and reports from the account about the credit card charges.

The guy is caught at his house with tens of thousands of dollars with of stolen items (not just from our store) and a bunch of fake credit cards.
