Didn’t Bank On That Ending

| Eugene, OR, USA | Right | November 11, 2013

(It’s a particularly busy day in our bank, and I’m working the drive through window. I have a long line of cars waiting, when I hear a customer in line start shouting across the lobby at the other tellers in front.)

Customer: “Look, I’m on my work break here! Can’t you go any faster?”

Coworker: “We’re moving as fast as we can, ma’am. We’re a bit short-staffed today, but we’ll be with you as soon as possible.”

Customer: “But I’m on my BREAK! I have to get back to work.”

Coworker: *still running another customer’s transaction* “Yes, ma’am, I understand.”

Customer: “Well, what about her? Can’t she help me? I’m in a hurry!”

(I suddenly realize that she’s referring to me, while I’m in the middle of my fifth car in a row.)

Manager: “Ma’am, she’s currently assisting customers in our drive through. If she becomes available, she will come to the front to help whoever she can.”

Customer: “Well, I would have driven through myself if I knew it would take this long!”

(I continue to help cars, and after finishing the last transaction, I go to the front to help. I get the shouting customer.)

Coworker: “Ma’am, this deposit slip is for [Competing Bank].”

(The customer turns BRIGHT RED and rushes out so fast you’d think she just robbed the place.)

Bird Brained, Part 9

| Norway | Right | November 10, 2013

(I work in a pet store, and only one staff member is male. We also have a chatty amazon parrot.)

Customer: “Excuse me?”

Me: “How may I help you?”

Customer: “Does the parrot say anything?”

Me: “Yes! He can say many things! Greetings and lots of random nonsense!”

(I wave at the parrot and he responds by saying ‘buh bye,’ and basically setting him off on a chatting rampage.)

Customer: “I thought you said it was a he?”

(I stare at the customer, somewhat confused.)

Me: “Excuse me?”

Customer: “Well… that’s clearly a woman’s voice!”

(I just stand there for a moment before explaining the principal behind parrots speaking. Needless to say, the customer was sort of embarrassed as he left.)

A Long Night Is In The Cards

| PA, USA | Right | November 10, 2013

(I work night shift at a local chain convenience store, so I see many different people come in. One customer in particular is very drunk.)

Me: “Hello, sir. How are you doing tonight?”

(The customer just grunts and puts his items on the counter. I ring them up.)

Me: “Okay, your total is [amount].”

(The customer swipes his card.)

Me: “Sir, your card was declined.”

Customer: “Bull-s***! I know I have enough. Try it again!”

(He proceeds to swipe it again and like before, it is declined.)

Me: “Sir, it’s still declining.”

Customer: “F***! Again!”

(This repeats four more times, meanwhile a line has started to form behind him.)

Me: “Sir, do you have another form of payment?”

Customer: “I shouldn’t need it, because I have money on my f****** card!”

(He goes through his wallet anyway. His face falls and then he starts laughing.)

Me: “Sir?”

Customer: “I was using the wrong d*** card! Here ya go.”

(He hands me the card and I run it through. It’s approved, and his receipt prints.)

Me: “Okay, sir. Have a good night!”

(I smile as he grabs his bag and leaves. I turn to the next customer in line.)

Next Customer: “Long night, huh?”

Me: “You have no idea.”
