Happiness Is All In The Wrist

| CA, USA | Right | March 7, 2016

(The customers have just asked me to write on a cake. They are a woman, Customer #1, and a man, Customer #2. After I have written on it, Customer #1 is looking at my handiwork.)

Customer #1: “Oh, wow, you have nice handwriting.”

Me: “Thank you very much.”

Customer #1: “Very steady, and good wrist work. You must make your boyfriend very happy.”

Customer #2: *obviously very shocked, he sputters and tries to say something like “you can’t say that!”*

Me: “Actually…” *holds up my left hand and points to my ring* “Wedding ring.”

Customer #1: “There, see? You made him very happy.”

Thankful To Know True History

| AZ, USA | Right | March 7, 2016

(The store I work at has a lot of merchandise from around the world. We sell almost everything from furniture and home decor to food, kitchen needs, and even toys. A lady in her 40s comes up to my register and she’s very friendly. She strikes up a conversation.)

Me: “Did you find everything all right, ma’am?”

Customer: “I did! You guy have so many cool things here.”

Me: “That we do, ma’am. Getting ready for Thanksgiving, I see?”

Customer: “Oh, yes! Actually I homeschool my kids so I thought this was a great opportunity to teach them a little more about history.”

Me: “That’s a really good idea, gives them a little hands-on learning.”

Customer: “Exactly! I’m making it as authentic as I can. A first century Thanksgiving! I want my kids to experience how Jesus had his Thanksgiving.”

(I am so absolutely speechless that I just smile and finish with the transaction. She pays, thanks me, and then leaves. My coworker who is standing close by walks up.)

Coworker: “I’m actually really worried for her children’s education. Especially since she thinks Jesus had a Thanksgiving regardless that it was more than a thousand years after he died…”

Wireless, Clueless, Hopeless, Part 25

, | Germany | Right | March 7, 2016

Customer: “Hello, I need help. I can’t connect with my WiFi router.”

Coworker: “Are you connected via LAN or via WiFi?”

Customer: “WiFi.”

Coworker: “How far are you from your router?”

Customer: “About half a meter.”

Coworker: *already confused* “What kind of router do you use?”

(The customer names an expensive and reliable brand.)

Coworker: “All right, can you try and connect your router with a LAN cable?”

Customer: “I’ll have to go search for one in the car—”

(At this point Coworker hears funny noises.)

Coworker: “Oh, these are funny noises. Are you in your garden?”

Customer: “No, I’m out fishing.”

Coworker: “And you want to get WiFi?”

Customer: “Well, yes, of course, so I packed my router and took it with me. This is how it works, right?”

 

The Storm After The Calm, Part 2

| KY, USA | Right | March 7, 2016

(Friday we were closed due to a blizzard. We open back up normal time on Saturday since the roads are finally clear. I am running the register when an older gentleman walks up.)

Me: “Hi, sir! How are you?” *I run up his items*

Customer: “Honestly, I’m pissed off!”

Me: “Oh, I’m sorry.”

Customer: “Yeah, you should be. You all were closed yesterday!”

Me: “Well, sir, it was due to bad weather.”

Customer: “I really needed this stuff. I waited outside for 20 minutes but you never opened!”

(I look over in his bag and noticed all he bought was a soda and a large can of tomato juice.)

Me: “I’m sorry, sir. Next time we will risk our employees lives on icy roads just so you can get one can of tomato juice! I mean who cares if someone wrecks and dies!”

Customer: “Well… never mind!”

(He paid for his stuff and ran out the door… forgetting to grab his oh-so-important merchandise!)
