Number One Tip Of The Day

| Nashville, TN, USA | Bad Behavior, Pets & Animals

(I’m working on a dog when a customer enters to pick up a dog that I finished earlier in the day. I put the dog that I am working on on the floor and tether it, and it immediately pees. One of my coworkers jumps in and picks up the dog while I drop some paper towels onto the mess and mop it up really quickly. We re-tether the dog, and I check out the customer, who jokes about the dogs peeing. I run to get the customer’s dog, and as soon as I hand it over, it pees. The customer and I both laugh about it, and I really wouldn’t have cared except the customer says:)

Customer: “Oh, look! He left you a tip!”

Me: “Oh, haha!”

(I drop paper towels onto the mess and the dog pees AGAIN!)

Customer: “Aw, another tip!”

Me: “…”

(The customer then walks out of the salon without actually leaving me any sort of tip whatsoever.)

Coworker: “What are you going to do with that amazing tip?”

Me: “It’s not even enough for me to drown myself in.”

The Look On His Face Was Pure Goldfish

| WA, USA | Bad Behavior, Pets & Animals, Popular

(I am dealing with a customer who’s raising hell over late fees on his account that we refuse to waive. Notably, he pulled this same stunt on me the previous week, though bizarrely he doesn’t seem to recognize me until we until we get to this part of the exchange:)

Customer: “Do you know how much I spend in here? What if I said that, thanks to you, I’m never coming back and you can kiss my business goodbye?!”

Me: “I’d remind you that you said the same thing not more than seven days ago, yet here you are again.”

Customer: “What?! How do you know that?”

Me: “If you check your receipt you’ll find I’m the one who served you then. Also, you’re wearing the same outfit as the last time you were in here. It kind of makes you stand out, actually.”

(The customer looks down at the receipt in his hand, then to his flashy ensemble of expensive clothes. He looks back at me in shock.)

Customer: “Wait… you guys actually remember stuff like that?”

Me: “I’m actually surprised you don’t remember me considering it was only a week ago.”

Customer: “Uh… well, I do, but… s***, I thought you guys were like goldfish! Two hours and you forget everything… or something…”

(He eventually agreed to pay his late fees, still mumbling about how he couldn’t believe we still recalled who he was.)
