A Very Close Knit Community

| USA | Awesome Customers, Bizarre, Holidays

(Occasionally customers bring in presents for the staff to show their appreciation. Normally it is cookies or flowers from their yards. Some of the newer staff are still getting used to this generosity. One afternoon in mid-November a woman brings in something different.)

Customer: “Pick one.” *lifts a a large, clear garbage bag full of brightly colored knit scarves onto the counter*

Me: “Oh, wow. What is the occasion?”

Customer: “It’s the holidays! I made all of these and I want to share them!”

Me: “Are you sure? That’s very thoughtful! You’re a much more prolific knitter than I am.” *carefully removes a scarf from the bag*

Customer: *quickly moves to my coworker at an adjacent desk* “Here! Pick one! Merry Christmas!”

Coworker: *looks up startled*

(I shrug, smile, and go into the work room to tell the other staff what is going on.)

Coworker: “Thank you. That’s very sweet.” *gingerly picks a scarf*

(The customer manages to find every staff member in the building and give them a scarf. She leaves immediately afterward.)

Coworker: “So, uh, do you guys all know her? Does she do this every year?”

Me: “I have… never seen that woman before in my life.”

Take A Trip Down Memory Fast Lane

| Whitehorse, Yukon, Canada | Crazy Requests, Theme Of The Month, Transportation

(A caller is on the phone:)

Caller: “My car was in for an inspection just over a year ago. Do you remember what repairs it needed?”

Me: “Hmm, that’s close to 10,000 work orders ago. That would be a ‘no.'”

Customer: “I think it was around $700. What could that be?”

Me: “Time for another inspection?”
