A Walk-In That Runs Out

Crazy Golf

| WA, Australia | Right | December 3, 2013

(To pay for university costs, I work for a small, government run golf course as a cashier. A customer in his forties enters the store.)

Me: “Hi. Welcome to [Golf Course]. How can I help you today?”

Customer: “Yeah. I’d like to play nine holes on the course with buggy hire. Thanks.”

Me: “Alright. Your total comes to $30. Will you be paying in cash or by card?”

Customer: “Actually, I was hoping I could give you this instead?”

(The customer slides a bottle of unmarked, white liquid across the table and looks at me grinning.)

Me: “Uh… sir. I don’t know what that is.”

Customer: “Oh, I make my own perfume in my bathtub! How about this bottle for my course fees?”

Me: “Sir, I must insist that you pay with currency. Perfume is not legal tender and I not be able to balance my till otherwise.”

(The customer takes the bottle back hastily, looking as if I’d just insulted his mother.)

Customer: “You don’t want my perfume? What kind of golf course is this!?”

Handled The Change Well

| Anchorage, AK, USA | Right | December 3, 2013

(I work at a local theater in the box office. I pride myself on quick service and being polite. I see some guys watching the line and specifically picking me to get their tickets.)

Customer #1: “Hi! Can I get two tickets to see [Movie] please?”

Me: “Certainly!”

(I ring in their movie choices and show their total, reading it off to them.)

Customer #1: “Perfect! Here.”

(Customer #1 then hands me a roll of electrical tape. I look at him and then unroll it and realize that he has taped exact change for two tickets in quarters, dimes, and nickels. Flabbergasted, I give him a look to see if he’s attempting to play me.)

Me: “Sir, I don’t mean to be rude, but do you realize the amount of work this requires for me?”

Customer #2: “But you have to accept it, right? Can’t you just count it out? I mean, it’s exactly how much our tickets are.”

Me: “Yes, sir. I can count it up. But in order to process this order and put it in my till, I’ll need to take each coin off the strip of tape, count them, and then put them in the till.”

Customer #1: “But… then we’ll be late for the movie!”

(I’m still not convinced that they aren’t attempting to play me. I count out almost 20 dollars of exact change, putting it into stacks on the counter. Then I do a quick count to make sure I didn’t miss any coins.)

Me: “Alright, sir. Everything seems to be in order. Here are your tickets.”

Customer #2: “I’d like to file a complaint with your manager! That was one of the longest transactions I’ve ever experienced at this theater.”

(A manager actually works the box at all times. My manager has seen my dilemma and had given me a sympathetic shrug as I counted, and apparently has heard the customer complain.)

Manager: “I’d like you to have a look at this sign.”

(My manager points to the sign behind the counter that informs customers of our right to refuse service.)

Manager: “At any point [My Name] could’ve chosen not to admit you into this theater. I think that he didn’t makes up for the fact that you are going to miss the first few previews from your movie.”

(Customer #2 glares at me. Suddenly, Customer #1, who has been silent since handing me his quarters, grabs his friend by the ear and drags him into the theater before Customer #2 can speak again.)
