In Line And Out Of Line, Part 4

| USA | Right | March 14, 2014

(During a particularly busy evening, I am helping a customer find a costume for her son. The customer is taking a bit too long for the hulking behemoth of a man who is the next customer standing behind her. It gets to a point where he just can’t take it anymore.)

Next Customer: “Hey! I need a costume. You better take down my order, now!”

Me: “I’m sorry, sir, but I’m with another customer right now.”

Next Customer: “Well, then, what the h*** am I?”

Me: “Next in line.”

Pot Calling The Kettle Black, Slowly

| CA, USA | Right | March 14, 2014

(I’m working the drive-thru. I’ve just finished taking an order that took about a minute and a half to get down as the customer was unsure of what they wanted and ordered some items requiring clarifications. I talk to the next car in the line.)

Me: “Hi, welcome to—”

Customer: “I’d just like to say that I waited too d*** long. It’s awful how long I’ve had to wait and I sat there waiting so long and all I want are two ice cream cones!”

Me: “I’m sorry about that. Your total is [total] at the first window. Please—”

(The customer drives forward as I’m still talking and ultimately ignores me.)

Me: *at the window* “Hi, that’ll be [total].”

Customer: “I didn’t mean to sound rude, but that wait was far too long!”

Me: “And again, I’m sorry about that, but the wait is also a matter of the customer ahead of you.”

Customer: “That was still too long! Do you know how much gas I probably wasted just sitting there, waiting? Any other business would be ashamed of making me wait that long!”

(There is a pause as the customer then digs through her purse for her wallet. After maybe a minute, during which other customers have lined up behind her, waiting to pay:)

Customer: “What was my total?”

Putting The Pee Into Preparation

| Sydney, NSW, Australia | Right | March 14, 2014

(I work in a radiology practice. I have just finished booking an appointment for a patient for the following day and am explaining the preparation procedure for his examination.)

Me: “One hour prior to your appointment, you will need to drink six glasses of water and hold your bladder.”

Patient: *nods slowly, but clearly does not understand*

Me: “Do you understand the preparation, sir?”

Patient: “Oh, yes. Yes, of course.” *nods vigorously*

(Unconvinced, I write him an appointment card and explain the procedure again. A short while later, the patient returns.)

Patient: “I, um, just have one question regarding that preparation.”

Me: “Yes, drinking the water and holding the bladder.”

Patient: “Yep. So, where do I get a bladder from? Can you just buy them from the chemist?”

Me: “Sir, you already have a bladder. It’s a part of your urinary tract system. It’s an organ inside your body.”

Customer: “Oh, okay! I get you! I get you! So… I don’t need to go to the chemist?”

Try Not To Sweat The Sweat Shop

, , | USA | Right | March 13, 2014

(I am in a fitting room, and I overhear a conversation.)

Customer: “I like this top, and this dress, but it doesn’t quite fit well. Do you guys have another one of the same size in the back?”

Coworker: “I’m sorry, ma’am. I know for a fact that that top is the last one we have, and that dress is the last one we have in that size.”

Customer: “Oh… That’s okay. I can wait.”

Coworker: “…”

Customer: “…”

Coworker: “Umm… May I ask what you’re waiting for?”

(The customer leans in to whisper loud enough for everyone in the sixteen fitting room area to hear.)

Customer: “I don’t mean to sound racist or nothing like that… but… like… don’t you guys have little Asian kids in the back to make these?”

Coworker: “Umm… I’m sorry, no… We’re not a sweatshop. All our merchandise is legal.”

Customer: “Oh… Okay…”  *leaves*
