Tazed And Confused

| Melbourne, FL, USA | Holidays, Theme Of The Month

(I am a new worker at a big convenience store. It’s near Christmas, a few weeks after Halloween. A mother and her daughter, looking about 10 or 11, walk in and pause near my aisle.)

Daughter: “Hey, Mom I have a cramp! Did you know that your whole BODY does a cramp if you’re tazed?”

Woman: “Do you wanna know how to avoid that?”

Daughter: “Don’t go to Black Friday?”

Woman: “No, silly, I meant the cramps.”

Daughter: “Oh.”

(That made my day, and I am now afraid to work on Black Friday!)

Asking Until You’re Winter Blue In The Face

| Green Bay, WI, USA | Holidays, Theme Of The Month

(It’s a cold, snowy day in December. I’m in a store looking through the remnant bin looking for some fabric for Christmas gifts I’m making. A customer comes up to me.)

Customer: “Where can I find [item]?”

Me: “Sorry, but I don’t know.” *I go back to looking through the bin*

Customer: “Aren’t you going to help me?”

Me: “Sorry, I don’t know where it is. Why don’t you ask one of the people who work here? They’re wearing red smocks.”

Customer: “Don’t YOU work here?”

Me: *looking at my blue winter coat* “Um, no…”

Customer: “You are so rude!” *stalks off*

Being Mis-LED

Customer: *to small child* “No, honey, get away from those. They have lead in them.”

Me: “Ma’am. They are Christmas lights. They are LED Christmas lights.”
