Giving Her A Little Flight

| USA | Right | November 27, 2013

(It is 8 am on Thanksgiving morning, and I am at the airport to fly to my mom’s home in Michigan. This is my second flight with this airline. The last time, I had money on a card to pay for my luggage, but they said they only took cash. I go up to the ticket counter.)

Me: “Hello! I have a 9 am flight to Detroit.”

Worker: “Alright, your luggage fee comes up to $50. How would you like to pay for that?”

(I put my cash on the counter and smile.)

Worker: “I’m sorry, but we only take credit or debit cards. Do you want to bill this to the card you purchased your flight with?”

Me: “But the last time, they said I needed to pay in cash. I put money on the card specifically for the ticket. All I can do is pay in cash!”

Worker: “It’s fine. Just go. Happy Thanksgiving!”

(I tried to give her the cash multiple times, but she couldn’t accept it. To that worker, I am so very sorry for the mix up, but because of your kindness, I made it home in time to spend Thanksgiving with my family, and I will be eternally grateful for your kindness!)

Stripped Of All Pretensions

| NJ, USA | Right | November 26, 2013

(My aunt sells antiques, mainly small things like Victorian era toys. She has just sold a stuffed bear for $70. The customer hands her 70 single dollar bills.)

Aunt: *joking* “Singles? What, are you a stripper?”

Customer: “Yes.”

(After my aunt’s stunned silence, the girl and she started talking. The customer was really cool about it, and not embarrassed or upset by the comment. Apparently, thanks to her profession, she pretty much pays for everything with $1 bills!)

A Customer With Felineous Intent

| GA, USA | Right | November 26, 2013

(I am a waitress at an upscale seafood and steak restaurant. There is a decorative two-headed zebra cat table at the front of the restaurant. A customer walks in and screams as soon as they see the table.)

Customer: “Oh my God!”

(The customer grabs one of my coworkers and puts her car keys in his hand.)

Customer: “My car is the Toyota parked up on that hill. Open my trunk and put this cat table inside!”

Coworker: “Uh…”

(The customer eventually sits in my section. I try to get her started on the menu, but she is completely turned around in her booth looking toward the front of the restaurant.)

Me: “Is there something wrong?”

Customer: “I want that cat table!”

Me: “Um, I’m sorry, but it’s not for sale. It belongs to the owner.”

Customer: “Well, where is he then? I’m gonna schmooze up to him and then he’ll have to give it to me.”

Me: “Okay, I’ll let him know what’s going on.”

(I go to the back to get her something to drink. When I go back to the front, I hear meowing. It’s the customer, and she is gesturing for the table to come.)

Customer: “Meow, meow, meow! Come here kitty!”

(I can see that other customers are looking.)

Me: “Ma’am, I’m going to have to ask you to stop… meowing. It’s making people nervous.”

(This goes on for half an hour. Eventually, I feel I have to talk to the manager.)

Me: “Can you please talk to this woman? She wants your cat table. She’s meowing and bothering other customers.”

Boss: “I’m not getting involved with this.”

(I go back to the table.)

Me: “Here’s your check.”

Customer: “What about the cat table?”

Me: “So as I said before, the table is not for sale.”

Customer: “Are you serious? This place isn’t very customer oriented!”

(After she leaves, I pick up the check. On the back of the receipt was a drawing of a demonic cat with sharp teeth and a note that said ‘You better give me your cat table! -The Cat Lady.’)
