You Don’t Know Jack About Jackelopes

| Denver, CO, USA | Bad Behavior, Pets & Animals

(The restaurant where I work is western themed and a popular stop for tourists. I’m ringing a couple out at the on-site gift shop when the lady spots our stuffed Jackelope head mounted above the door.)

Lady: “Is that real?”

Man: “Of course it’s real. Look at it.” *he catches my eye and winks*

Me: *playing along* “Yeah, actually, [Founder] caught this guy out in the south field in the sixties.”

Lady: “Wow! You know I’m from [State] and we don’t have them there. I thought they were a myth!”

Man: “Probably because they look like regular rabbits from a distance, right?”

Me: “Yep. Right up until fall when the Jacks’ horns really come in. The doe’s are harder to spot pretty much year round. Last year, I think, we had a four prong Jack spotted on the property.”

Lady: “I guess you learn something new every day!” *she snaps a picture with her phone and begins to walk away* “I’m going to have to tell [Friend] that she was wrong…”

Me: *quietly to the man as he turns to follow her* “She’s going to kill you.”

Man: “Worth it.”

Young And Free From Absolutely Nothing

| UK | Family & Kids

(I am 16 and have just left home due to difficult circumstances. I have a weekend job in an independent health food store. A customer walks in; there are two of us behind the till and she begins talking to the other member of staff.)

Customer: “I’ve had a terrible morning. I woke up to find the high winds had destroyed one of my fence panels, and then my husband couldn’t bring me to town so I had to wait for the bus in the rain…”

(She carries on the mundane story about everything wrong in her life. Then suddenly she looks at me and says:)

Customer: “You’re lucky you’re so young and don’t have any problems!”

Working In A High Pressure Environment

| UK | Crazy Requests

(A customer comes in to the health food store on Saturday.)

Customer: “I have high blood pressure and need something to make it go down. I have a test on Monday to get my HGV license back.”

Me: “I don’t think we have anything that will work that quickly, but exercise would also help.”

(We point out some remedies that might be useful.)

Customer: “How much?”

Me: “£8.99.”

Customer: “Okay I wasn’t looking to spend that much. I’ll do some exercise!”

(Miracle cure wanted or what?!)
