This Is Soda-Pressing

| Twin Cities, MN, USA | Right | July 7, 2013

(I’m taking an order for delivery on the phone.)

Caller: “What kind of soda do you have?”

Me: “Coke, Diet Coke, Cherry Coke, Mr. Pibb, and root beer.”

Caller: “Hmm… I’d like a Mountain Dew!”

Me: “I’m sorry; we don’t have that. We only have Coke, Diet Coke, Cherry Coke, Mr. Pibb, and root beer.”

Caller: “Well, how about a Sprite then!”

Me: “We don’t have that either, only Coke, Diet Coke, Cherry Coke, Mr. Pibb, and root beer.”

Caller: “Oh, Coke then!”

(The customer then shouts into the background.)

Caller: “Honey, do you want a soda? They have orange!”

Politeness To Customers Is A Good Rule Of Thumb

| Tamworth, England, UK | Right | July 6, 2013

(I’m checking out a quiet, elderly customer.)

Me: “That’ll be £11.25, please.”

(The customer hands me a £20 note.)

Me: “Thank you.”

(I turn for a few seconds to sort his change, and get his receipt.)

Me: “Here’s your—”

(The customer is waving his partially amputated thumb in my face.)

Customer: “I lost that in the war you know! They gave me £30 for that! I bought my first bike with it!”

Me: “Th-that’s lovely, sir. Here’s your receipt and change; have a nice day!”

The ‘D’ Is Silent, The Customer Won’t Be

| Los Angeles, CA, USA | Right | July 6, 2013

(I am at the ticket counter in the lobby, when a customer leaves her movie, and wanders outside to take a call. A few moments later she pokes her head back in to SHOUT at us.)

Customer: “When is it over?”

Coworker: “When is what over?”

Customer: *disgusted sigh* “THE MOVIE!”

(The theaters are not visible from the ticket counter.)

Coworker: “Which movie?”

Customer: “Ugh! THE ONE I CAME FROM!”

Coworker: “Which was?”

Customer: “Um… DiGiorno…”

Me:Django Unchained?”

Customer: “Yeah.”

(The customer gets her information, and goes back outside to take her phone calls again.)

Me: *to coworker* “Because it’s not delivery, it’s Django?”

Paying it Forward Credits Everyone

| NC, USA | Right | July 5, 2013

(My school’s residence hall is going on a fast-food run. My friend is really hungry, but has no money to go, so I give him all my cash to pay for it, as I intend to pay by debit. Most of the group goes to one specific fast-food place, but I am dropped off first to pick up some Taco Bell.)

Cashier: “Cash only.”

Me: “Excuse me?”

Cashier: “I’m sorry, but the card machine is broken. We can only take cash at this time.”

(I turn around to see the bus driving off to the other fast-food place.)

Me: “Darn, I was really craving Taco Bell recently. Guess I’ll wait for the bus to get back.”

(The only other customer walks up to me.)

Customer: “Don’t worry. I’ll pay for you.”

Me: “No, it’s fine; I’ll get picked up and go somewhere else.”

Customer: “No, it’s fine; I’m paying for you. End of story.”

(Without hesitating, she pulls out her pocketbook, and pays as I order. When I see my friend, I tell him the story, and tell him he doesn’t owe me a penny.)
