Cereally Stupid, Part 2

| USA | Extra Stupid

(I am working in the housewares section. A customer approaches; she is holding a clear plastic container.)

Customer: “Do you have any of these in a larger size?”

Me: “Yes, there are some right here.”

(I point to the container. It has a picture of cereal on the front, but it’s obviously empty.)

Customer: “Well, I’m not going to buy it if it comes with cereal in it! That’s just stupid!” *angrily walks away*

The Polites Are On But Nobody’s Home

| Scotland, UK | At The Checkout, Bizarre

(I work at the till. We always ask a few questions to every customer.)

Me: “Did you get everything you were looking for okay today?”

Customer: *nodding* “Thank you!”

Me: “Are you interested in any gift cards today?”

(The customer shakes her head side-to-side this time, with inflections to say ‘no’.)

Customer: “Thank you.”

Me: “That’ll be [price], please.”

(The customer hands me the money.)

Customer: “Thank you!”

Me: “And here’s your change and receipt.”

Customer: “Thank you.”

Me: “See you later.”

Customer: “Thank you!”

These Wheels Don’t Revolve Around You

| Duluth, MN, USA | Bad Behavior, Top

(A middle-aged customer approaches me. I’m helping an elderly customer who has fallen out of his wheelchair, back into his chair. I’m a small guy: about 5’6″ tall and 120lbs.)

Middle-Aged Customer: “Hey, you!”

Me: “I’ll be with you in a moment, miss.”

(I continue struggling to help the elderly customer back into his wheelchair.)

Middle-Aged Customer: “Help me now, d*** it! I’m in a hurry; he can f****** wait!”

(I ignore her until I am able to get the elderly customer back in his wheelchair. I start checking to see if he is okay.)

Me: “Are you sure you’re alright, sir?”

(The middle-aged customer grabs my shoulder, pulling me to face her.)

Middle-Aged Customer: “I said, NOW!”

Elderly Customer: “Now listen here you b****! What the h*** gives you the right to talk to this young man—much less grab him—like that? He told you he’d help you in a minute. People like you are what’s wrong with the world. The world doesn’t revolve around you. Stop acting like a d*** child!”

Middle-Aged Customer: *storms off*
