Do As I Yell, Not As I Do

| | Right | June 10, 2009

Me: “Do you have a store credit account?”

Customer: “No.”

Me: “Would you like to open one? You’ll get 15% off your purchase today and–”

Customer: “NO. I don’t open up useless credit accounts. You wonder why people are in debt all the time, it’s because they open up s*** like this. You should be ashamed of yourself.”

Me: *silently rings up the rest of her purchase* “And how would you like to pay for this?”

Customer: “Oh, I’m going to put it on my store credit account.”

The Devil Is In The Ridiculous Details

| | Right | June 10, 2009

(Two female customers are purchasing coffees and breath mints at the cafe in the bookstore.)

Me: “Your total is $6.66.”

Customer 1: *looking horrified* “NO! I don’t want my total to be $6.66! Let me add something else…”

(She starts combing the gum shelves for a flavor she wants.)

Customer 2: *patting friend consolingly* “No, don’t worry about it. You only have to worry about it if $6.66 is the amount of change you get BACK.”

Customer 1: “OH, okay!”

| | Right | June 10, 2009

(I had just arrived and was beginning my shift, when a teenage girl approached the counter.)

Customer: “Hi…do you guys sell bread?”

Me: “Yes we do, anything you’re looking for in particular?”

Customer: “Yeah…”

Me: “Which is?”

Customer: “White bread.”

Me: “We have several kinds of white bread, what kind would you like?”

Customer: “Oh…whatever.”

Me: *grabs the most expensive white bread* “Sliced?”

Customer: “Yep.”

Me: “Thick or thin?”

Customer: “Oh…thick.”

Me: *slices bread and rings everything up* “That’ll be $5.50.”

Customer: “Is it too late to get that thin-sliced?”

Me: “…I could get another loaf for you.”

Customer: “Oh…nah, I wouldn’t want to be a bother.”

Me: *hands her her change and her bread* “Have a nice day.”

(She leaves, and a clearly intoxicated man walks over to my co-worker.)

Man: “I LIKE YOUR BUNS!”

(He swears loudly and walks away.)

Co-worker: “It’s gonna be a long day.”

Me: “Didn’t you just ask if I spoke Spanish?”

Customer: “Whatever!” *pays for coffee and leaves*
