Never Outshine A Customer

| Canberra, Australia | Bizarre

(I am approaching a middle-aged woman who has come into the store.)

Me: *very cheerfully* “Hey there! How’re you today?”

Customer: “Fine. And you?”

Me: “I’m great actually.”

Customer: *yells* “Stop showing off!”

Me: *speechless*

The Great State Of Confusion, Part 3

| Virginia, USA | Food & Drink, Geography

Customer: “Excuse me, I have a question about your wild Alaskan Salmon. Why does it say it’s a product of the United States on it?”

Me: “Yes, ma’am, it is.”

Customer: “But if it’s a product of the US, then it’s not really Alaskan salmon, right?”

Me: *speechless* “Um, the label’s correct, ma’am.”

Customer: “So, then it’s not from Alaska?”

Me: “Alaska is a part of the United States. The salmon is fresh from Alaska.”

Customer: “Oh, okay…” *rolls eyes and leaves*

Water You, Stupid, Part 6

| Woburn, MA, USA | Food & Drink

Customer: “Can I have a glass of water?”

Me: “Sure.” *gets him cup of water*

Customer: “Are we in Woburn?”

Me: “Yes.”

Customer: “Oh, so is this, uh, Woburn water?”

Me: *sigh* “Yes.”

Customer: “Didn’t this stuff kill people?”

Me: “That was years ago.”

Customer: “No, I think it was very recent.”

Me: “No, the movie was just released very recently. The water’s fine now.”

Customer: “I’d rather not take my chances. Can I get a bottle of water instead with a cup of ice?”

Me: “You know where ice comes from, right?”

Customer: “Huh?”

Me: “Never mind. Enjoy.” *hands them bottle of water and ice made from Woburn water*
