Sticking To One’s Guns

| Texas, USA | Awesome Customers, Bigotry, Top

(A squadmate and I from my unit are out at the range, practicing with a pair of higher-priced military style AR rifles. Both of us are wearing civilian clothes and military issue armor and ammo carriers, for practice. A guy in the next lane over has a similarly expensive gun, and the far lane is occupied by an obvious civilian with a much cheaper, wooden rifle.)

Next Lane: “Look at that s***! Only f****ts use Mosins. It’s a gay rifle!”

Me: “Oh, that’s not true…” *I look at my buddy* “Do you have a Mosin, darling?”

My Buddy: *doesn’t miss a beat* “Of course not, baby.”

(He stops reloading the mag he has and stands very close to me with one arm around my shoulders.)

Next Lane: *packs up and leaves immediately*

(I am not gay, but my squad mate is!)

Wake Up And Hell The Coffee

| Gloucestershire, England, UK | Food & Drink, Religion

(I’m working the Sunday morning shift in the cafe in the middle of winter. Our cafe is opposite the church.)

Customer: *comes in from the church, shivering*

Me: “You look cold.”

Customer: “Oh, the church central heating is broken again, and the vicar went on and on and on. You’d think he’d have thought to have let us out early when it’s this cold.”

Me: “Well, what can I get you to warm you up?”

Customer: “A large latte please…” *perks up suddenly* “…and make it evil, evil, EVIL hot!”

Holy Smoky Mountains, Batman

| St. Louis, MO, USA | Family & Kids

(I’m working the register of a small toy store when a family walks in with a two-year-old boy in a stroller and his older brother (who’s about eight) walking alongside it. They walk past our new “Dark Knight Rises” merchandise.)

2-year-old Brother: *holds his arms out* “I WANNA BE BATMAN! I WANNA BE BATMAN!”

Me: *smiling* “We all want to be Batman.”

8-year-old Brother: “Batman’s real where I come from!”

Me: “Oh, are you from Gotham City?”

8-year-old Brother: “No, Tennessee!”

They Won’t Move A Muscle, Although They Can Move You To Tears

| Virginia, USA | Uncategorized

(We have an aisle at our grocery store that is split down the middle by food displays, making two very narrow aisles on the sides. One aisle is blocked by my coworker, who is busy is explaining to several customers how to tell if food is safe since we just lost power after a large storm. The other aisle is blocked by another customer looking at the labels of juice bottles. I am trying to get down the aisle and excuse myself past the customer.)

Me: “Excuse me?”

Customer: “I shouldn’t have to be the one to move. I’m the customer! He should have to move.”

Me: “Oh, well I—”

Customer: “I mean I’m the customer! He’s blocking the way! Employees should be moving, not the customers!”

(I walk past the lady and start picking up groceries further down the aisle. The customer then decides to go after my coworker, who is still busy helping other customers.)

Customer: *to my coworker* “Sir, you really need to move! You’re blocking the aisle!”

Other Customer: “Ma’am, it’s not that big of a deal.”

Customer: *to my coworker* “No, you need to move! I’m the customer! I shouldn’t have to move!”

Coworker: “Ma’am, I’m very sorry. I’m moving out of the way.”

Customer: “That’s right! Customers shouldn’t have to move!”
