He Shoots, He Misses

(I used to work at a drug store. From time to time, the pharmacy portion of the store wouldn’t open because there wasn’t a pharmacist to do so. A customer reads the closed sign…)

Customer: “What’s the meaning of this?!”

Me: “I’m sorry, sir. The pharmacy is closed today because we don’t have a pharmacist.”

Customer: “People are SICK! They need their MEDICATION!”

Me: “I wish there was something I could do, sir, but–”

Customer: “You know what this is? Do you?! Two words! TWO WORDS! UN-ACCEPTABLE!”

Hey G.W., Crazy Lady On Line 1

| | Right | August 12, 2008

(I used to work in a building on 17th and Pennsylvania Ave, which is a block away from the White House.)

Me: “Good morning, *** & ***.”

Lady: “Uh, hi… is this office in DC?”

Me: “Yes, ma’am, this is the DC office. How may I direct your call?”

Lady: “Is your building by the White House?”

Me: “Yes, it is…?”

Lady: “Can you run over there and tell them to pick up the phone? I’ve been calling all day but I can’t get ahold of the President!”

Me: *click*

Let’s All Just Randomly Grab Crap

| | Right | August 12, 2008

(I’m ringing up a customer’s items.)

Customer: “That’s wrong. That’s on sale.”

Me: “Well, the system is usually correct, and I don’t believe it is, but I can have someone check.”

(After the area is checked, we find that I am correct.)

Me: “The sign back there says the clearance EXCLUDES your item.”

Customer: “No, it doesn’t.”

Me: “Ma’am I just had an associate check for you to ensure that the item is not on sale.”

Customer: “Yes it is! You are just a dumb cashier! Where is your supervisor?”

Me: “Ma’am, I am the supervisor. I’m sorry, but the sign clearly says in large red letters that your item is excluded from the sale.”

Customer: “Well, I shouldnt have to pay attention! I saw clearance so I just grabbed something. I should get it cheaper because of it!”

(I’m a customer and see an employee is waiting on another customer. The employee speaks perfect English and actually looks Hawaiian.)


Employee: Umm… yeah?”

Customer: “I want some choco-lato ice-creamo. GRASSIOS!”

Employee: “I speak English fine. What size do you want?”

Customer: “Oh, you are doing so good. Good job, boy. Umm… I want a GRAND-AY!”

The Art Of Persuasion

| | Right | August 12, 2008

(This is on one of the busiest days we’ve ever had. We literally had to stop letting people into the park)

Guest: “Why can’t I go into the park?! I drove here from Cape Cod!”

Me: “I’m sorry, but the general manager said we’re not allowed to let anyone else in. We’re at capacity.”

Guest: “Why can’t I go in now? There are a ton of people leaving!”

Me: “There are a few things, sir. The general manager said we can’t allow anyone else in, we have weather coming which might halt operations, and even if we let you in, you honestly wouldn’t have fun. There are a ton of people in there.”


Me: “Sir, your options are you can stay here and complain to me about not being let in, or I can let you in, and you can pay $35 to complain to me that there are too many people inside the park. How’s that?”

Guest: “On second thought, I’ll just go to the beach.”
