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*

They’ll Always Be (Baby) Back For More

| Glendale Heights, IL, USA | Extra Stupid, Food & Drink

(A customer has just given me her order for a full-slab of ribs. She seems nice and even-tempered until this moment.)

Customer: “That’s to go, and I want to talk to your manager!”

(I call over the manager.)

Manager: “Yes, how may I help you?”

Customer: “Last time I came here, I ordered your ribs and they were absolutely DISGUSTING! There was barely ANY sauce and they were cold and gross!”

Manager: “Did you contact us? We could have given you customer credit.”

Customer: “NO! Why would I EVER want to come back?!” *pays for her ribs and storms off*
