About To Be Very Cheesed Off

Patiently Aware

| Maryville, TN, USA | Right | September 22, 2016

(I see a customer order a specialty frozen blended drink in the drive-thru and three kid-size ones, with no coffee, for the kids.)

Cashier: “One moment, please. I need to figure out how to key these in and there are several blended drinks in front of yours.”

(It takes a few minutes, but definitely not more than five. The cashier apologizes several times for the wait. The kids are a little restless but nothing unmanageable. Meanwhile the poor cashier hasn’t stopped running herself ragged taking and filling orders. Finally, she starts handing out drinks.)

Cashier: “I am so sorry again for the wait.”

Customer: “Look, I came in during lunch rush, ordered four specialty drinks, and I haven’t seen you stop moving since I pulled up. I’m not gonna yell at you or call to complain and I don’t want anything free. Put my change in your tip jar and relax a bit.”

Cashier: “Thank you.”

Customer: “I worked retail five years. I’ve been there. Have a nice day.”

A Weighty Description

| NY, USA | Right | September 22, 2016

(I work at a retail store associated with a shipping company. A customer calls to get a shipping estimate on a small table. At this point, he has already given me the value of the table for insurance purposes, as well as the dimensions of it.)

Me: “And do you have an approximate weight of the table?”

Customer: “Not so heavy! I can lift it with one hand, easy.”

Me: “Okay, great! So it’s pretty light, then?”

Customer: “But not so, so light… Imagine that you are on a date with a cute boy. And your bag is full of all of your makeup. And you have a sweater. And your wallet is full of hundred dollar bills. That is the weight.”

(He brought the table in the next day. It was 16 pounds.)

What Plays Around Comes Around

| Clayton, NC, USA | Right | September 21, 2016

(I work as a cashier at a gas station. It is a small store and not very busy with only one register. Luckily, this is the most relaxed manager I’ve ever had; I am allowed to be my blunt self. After cashiering for several years, I am so sick of the little “jokes” that customers say and do. (Like, “Oh, no price tag. That means it’s free!” A customer is purchasing a pack of cigarettes and a candy bar. He looks to be in his 40s or 50s.)

Me: “That’ll be [Total].” *I reach to take the bill from his hand.*

Customer: *pulls the money back*

(I set both hands down on the counter and stare at him as he smiles, thinking this is a fun thing to do. He holds the money closer to me again and I hold my hand out for him to place it in.)

Me: “I work until 3:30, so I’ve got all day. It won’t bother me a bit if you don’t get your smokes and chocolate.”

Customer: “You don’t play around, do you?”

Me: “Nope. At least two people a day try that.”

Customer: “Fair enough.”

(He handed me the cash and I finished the sale. I guess we were close to his house or job because I started seeing him on my shift fairly frequently and he eventually became one of the customers I shared friendly banter with, so no hard feelings. The same stupid jokes all day every day gets really tiring, so please try to avoid them!)
