No Manners For Minions

| Colorado, USA | Bizarre

(Although it’s my first day at my job in the grocery department, I used to work in customer service in the same store. There’s a particular customer who often visited me in customer service. I fixed his transactions many times before and he has been nothing but nice. As I’m walking around putting stock in the aisles, this same customer approaches me.)

Customer: “Do you have split peas?”

Me: “What kind are you looking for? I believe we have some one aisle over with the canned food. We also have frozen peas with the frozen vegetables.”

Customer: “Okay, thanks.”

(A little while later, the original customer finds me.)

Customer: “I just want to let you know I found dry split peas in the same aisle we were talking in, on the lowest shelf. You don’t know your job.”

Me: “I’m sorry, sir, it’s my first day and I’m still learning.”

Customer: “WELL, YOU SHOULDN’T BE ALLOWED TO THINK! You should know where everything is before they hire idiots like you!”

Knowing Is Half The Battle, Part 2

| Michigan, USA | Bizarre, Extra Stupid

Me: “Hello! How are you today?”

Customer: “I don’t know…”

Me: “Well, is there anything I can help you find?”

Customer: “Yeah.”

(There’s a long pause.)

Me: “…Is there a specific style you’re looking for?”

Customer: “I don’t know…”

Me: “Maybe a color?”

Customer: “I don’t know…”

Me: “What size?”

Customer: “I don’t know…”

Me: “Um, I can’t help you unless you give me something to go on.”

Customer: *dejectedly* “Okay.” *leaves*

Boss: “What just happened?”

Me: “I don’t know…”

Only If It Grows On Trees

Me: “Hello, you’re through to the loans department. My name is [name]. How can I help you?”

Caller: “I’d like to check how much I could get on a loan, please.”

(I get the persons details and check the account.)

Me: “Thank you, Mrs. [caller]. You can have a loan of up to £900.”

Caller: “Do I have to pay that back?”

It’s Not Personal ‘Til It’s Personal

| Newfoundland, Canada | Uncategorized

(My coworker and I are standing in my department talking. An older lady comes up to my coworker.)

Customer: “Where can I find pants?”

Coworker: “I’m not sure, as I’m just a cashier. However my coworker works in this department, so she can help you.” *motions to me*

Customer: “So you don’t know?”

Coworker: “No, I only work on cash.”

Customer: “So, there’s no one that can help me?”

Coworker: “This girl can help you.” *motions to me again* “She’s worked in this department a long time.”

Customer: “I want you to help me!”

Coworker: “Like I said, I work on cash. She works in this department, so she can help you.”

Customer: “I don’t want HER to help me.”

Coworker: “Well, she’s the only one working in this department today.”

Customer: “I guess no one can help me, then!” *storms off*
