The Whole Nine Yards Of Unreason

| GA, USA | Crazy Requests, Theme Of The Month

(Whilst having an indoor yard sale, I happen to have an open and hours sign from our old store, so I put them up. A customer in a rather nice car pulls up.)

Customer: “What kind of store is this?”

Me: ‘It’s a yard sale. I just happen to have the signs and thought they would be funny.”

Customer: “Oh… okay.”

(The customer proceeds to browse for a few minutes.)

Customer: “Is this used?”

Me: “Yes.”

Customer: “How about this? Is this used?”

Me: “Yes…”

Customer: “WHAT NERVE DO YOU HAVE SELLING USED ITEMS? THIS IS THE WORST STORE I’VE BEEN TO!”

Me: “This is a yard sale. That’s generally how it works. People sell their used goods.”

Customer: “I’ve never heard of nonsense like that. Nobody wants someone’s used things. I’m reporting you to the Better Business Bureau!”

Me: “Go right ahead. Have a nice day.”

(I’m a blackjack dealer, and get many players that are confused when a blackjack (ace and 10, jack, queen, or king) beats a hand with a total of 21.)

Player: “How did your hand beat mine? We both have 21.”

Me: “I have blackjack and you have 21. Blackjack is a winning hand.”

Player: “It’s like the casino just wants to make money.”

(My sisters and I are out shopping and stop by a fast food restaurant for lunch. Both of my sisters still work there, and I have only recently quit to take another job. Several of our good friends work there as well. One such friend is on shift, greeting customers who come in and cleaning tables. When we enter, she comes over and gives us all hugs. Another customer has walked in right behind us, and sees our friend give us all hugs.)

Customer: “Do I get a hug too?”

(Without thinking, she hugs him. He just grins and walks off. We all stare at her in shock.)
