Better Bean Nice In Bean Town

| Boston, MA, USA | Awesome Customers, Bigotry, Food & Drink, Top

(I am in line at a fast food burrito place in Boston. A rude customer is ordering his burrito and asks for medium salsa, but changes his mind and then blames his mistake on the employee making his order. Note: everyone working here happens to be of some sort of Hispanic background.)

Rude Customer: “You f***ing idiot! I didn’t order that! I asked for mild! Can you understand any english?! Mild! M-I-L-D! ”

Employee: “I am very sorry, sir. I will make your order again. Just one minute. ”

Rude Customer: “Yeah! You are going to make it again! Do you think maybe this time you could get it right you d*** wetback!”

(The rude customer continues to rant, spouting off various racial slurs. In the middle of his rant, the female customer directly behind him decides she has heard enough and lets him have an earful. Note that the female customer is half the rude customer’s size and about 15 years younger than him.)

Young Female Customer: “Okay, I don’t really know what your problem is. First of all, just for the record, you were the one who made the mistake. I saw you and heard you. Second, he just said he would make you a new one. Its a burrito. Just chill out. I don’t know who raised you, but where I come from people tend to be brought up to show a little more respect. Instead of being mad right now, I would be embarrassed at my poor behavior if I were in your shoes. My younger brothers have better manners than you. Get a grip! You didn’t have to be so rude. He would have offered to remake it for you without the temper tantrum. Just get your food, and leave this guy alone.” *smiles at the employee behind the counter*

Rude Customer: “Mind your own business!”

(The rude customer gets in her face and calls her all sorts of names. When she ignores him, he gets angrier and looks like he might push her. Before he can, however, a cop directly in line behind me speaks up.)

Cop: “Hey buddy! If I see you get any closer to her or raise your voice to her one more time, I’ll kick your punk a** right out of here, with or without your d*** burrito! Cool it! Now!”

Rude Customer: “I’d like to see you try! You can’t do that!”

(The cop takes a few steps forward, gets in the jerk’s face, and in a thick Boston accent says…)

Cop: “You just f***in’ watch me.”

(The jerk shuts up, pays for his stuff and practically runs out. The cop takes his place in line and bought that young female customer her burrito. This was like straight out of a movie or something!)

Count On This Customer To Be Considerate For A Change

, | Omaha, NE, USA | Math & Science, Money

(A woman in her thirties comes in with her young daughter, and they order two meals to go. The total is just over $18 and she hands me a twenty.)

Me: “Out of twenty?”

Customer: “Oh! Oh! I have the change. Is that okay? Do you want the change? Is it okay if I give you the change? Will it mess you up? Will you have to re-ring it?”

Me: “No, it’s fine. Thanks.”

Customer: “Are you sure? It won’t mess up the till?”

Me: “No. Actually, we have no way to enter in how much customers give us. We just have to use math to figure it out!”

Customer: “Really? Oh my gosh. There’s really no way to figure it out?”

Me: “Nothing but counting.” *I hand her the change* “There you go. That’ll be right out.”

Customer: *in awe* “Wow!”

Inconsiderate People Never Take Stock Of Other Customers

| London, UK | Awesome Customers, Technology

(We sell printer ink cartridges. As we don’t have the space to display them all, we place dummy cards which have the name and price on them. They all have a ‘subject to availability’ sticker on them).

Customer #1: “Just these two.” *places dummy cards*

Me: “I’m afraid we’re out of stock on one, sir. Would you like us to order you one?”

Customer #1: “No.”

(I proceed to scan the one.)

Me: “Your total is £15, please.”

Customer #1: “But what about the other one?”

Me: “As I said, we are unfortunately out of stock.”

Customer #1: “Now you listen here! I have, selflessly come in MY OWN time. I have come to YOUR store. Now GET me my INK!”

Me: “I don’t know what I can do for you, sir. We haven’t got it.”

Customer #1: “Well, I’m not moving until I have that ink!”

(He smiles and crosses his arms, keeping eye contact with me. By now, a line has formed behind him.)

Me: “I’m going to have to ask you to leave, sir.”

(The customer doesn’t speak and continues to stand there. Suddenly, another customer behind him grabs him by the scruff of his neck and turns him around.)

Customer #2: “May I suggest you selflessly go f*** yourself?!”

Customer #1: *goes red and quickly darts for the door*

Ferretting Out Falsehood Is A Full-Time Effort

| USA | Bizarre, Pets & Animals, Top

(I work in a pet store. I have a pet ferret that I bring to work with me on occasion. I put him on a leash and harness and walk him around the store when we aren’t busy.)

Customer: “Godd***, that rat is huge!”

Me: “He’s not a rat; he’s a ferret. They aren’t—”

Customer: “F*** all that scientific bulls***! That’s a f***ing rat! That’s not your pet, is it?”

Me: “Yes, he is. But ferrets are not rodents. They’re mustelids.”

Customer: “A what?! Mustard lid?”

Me: “No, mustelid. They’re in the same family as otters, badgers, and weasels.”

Customer: “What’d you call it? A furret? My friend told me about those. They’ll f***ing bite your nose off!”

Me: “Well, one might, if it feels threatened, but I assure you they are actually very tame and affectionate animals. Would you like to hold him and see?”

(I pick my ferret up and cradle him in my arms like a baby. He immediately goes limp and nuzzles my shirt.)

Customer: *hesitantly reaches out to pet him* “Uh… well, I guess it wouldn’t hurt to try—”

(At that moment, my ferret opens his mouth wide for a particularly intense yawn, revealing his formidable canine teeth.)

Customer: “S***! That rat ain’t tame! He just tried to take my f***ing hand off! Crazy b****es and their godd*** face-eating rats!” *bolts out the door*
