| MA, USA | Uncategorized

(I approach a confused looking woman standing in the ink cartridge aisle.)

Me: “How are you today, ma’am? Can I help you find the correct ink?”

Customer: “Yeah, thank you.”

Me: “Do you know which cartridge or what model printer you have?”

Customer: “No, but it’s one of these.”

(There are literally hundreds of ink cartridges in this aisle.)

Me: “Could you be a little more specific?”

Customer: “Well, it takes black…”

For Some, Childhood Never Ends

, | Glen Burnie, MD, USA | Food & Drink

(While waiting for my order inside a fast food restaurant, I overhear this conversation between the employee working the drive-thru window and the customer at the speaker.)

Employee: “Welcome to [restaurant]. How may I help you?”

Customer: “I need a hamburger kids’ meal. Also, could you put cheese on that?”

Employee: “Okay, so you want a cheeseburger kids’ meal?”

Customer: “No, just a hamburger with cheese on it.”

Employee: “Ma’am, if you put cheese on a hamburger, it becomes a cheeseburger. So, do you want a hamburger or a cheeseburger?”

Customer: “Well, then, I guess I want a cheeseburger.”

Employee: “Okay, and is this kids’ meal for a boy or a girl?”

Customer: “Does it matter?”

Employee: “Not to me, ma’am.”

(The customer leaves the drive-thru as I leave the restaurant parking lot and she ends up behind me at a red light, happily eating her happy meal while driving.)

There Is No Expiration On Your Stupidity

| Midlands, UK | At The Checkout

(A customer comes to the till with a large bottle of milk.)

Customer: “Hello, I’d like to return this. It’s expired.”

Me: “It says on the receipt that you bought it last week.”

Customer: “Yes, but I haven’t used it. It’s expired.”

Me: “The expiration date is yesterday. It was well in date when you bought it.”

Customer: “Yes, but I didn’t use it, so you have to give me a refund.”

Me: “I’m afraid we can’t give a refund for that. It was within date when you bought it.”

Customer: “Well, can’t you change it, at least?”

Me: “You want to swap some expired milk for fresh milk?”

Customer: “No, just change the label so it’s in date again.”

Too Many Nuggets Rots Your Brain

Customer: “Do you still have the fifty piece nuggets?”

Me: “No, I’m sorry. It was a limited time product, but we still have the twenty piece.”

Customer: “Okay, I need a minute to figure out what I want.”

Me: “No problem. Just let me know when you’re ready.”

*long silence*

Customer: “Okay, that’ll be all.”

Me: “I’m sorry?”

Customer: “Oh, I think I forgot to order!”

Wake Up And Sell The Coffee, Part 2

| Riverside, CA, USA | Food & Drink

(I’m ringing up customers when I suddenly have a severe allergic reaction to something I ate on my break twenty minutes ago. By severe reaction, I mean my entire body is quickly becoming covered in hives in the span of about 30 seconds.)

Customer: “Hey, can you hurry up? I’m kind of in a hurry.”

Me: “Sorry, I think I’m gonna have to get someone else to finish
helping you.”

Customer: “No! I’m late and I need you to finish ringing me up right now!”

Me: “Uhh…” *passes out*

(As I am coming to, I can hear the customer still yelling.)

Customer: “No, you can’t help me! I know he’s faking it and I’m not leaving until he rings me up!”
