Christmas Time, Mistletoe And Overtime, Part 2

| New Zealand | Right | December 19, 2015

Guest: “Oh, look at you, poor thing stuck on here Christmas Day.”

Me: “Oh, it’s not so bad. I’ll be finished by three pm so I can still have Christmas dinner.”

Guest: “Now that’s just terrible! How could they do that to their staff!?”

Me: “Well, not having me would certainly make checking in a lot harder now wouldn’t it?”

(She looks at me and her eyes widen.)

Guest: *head down* “I didn’t think of that.”

The Christmas Gift Of Foresight

| Rapid City, SD, USA | Right | December 19, 2015

(It is Christmas Eve, about lunchtime. We’re a small business that offers gift certificates. I’ve already sold three of them by this call.)

Caller: “Yeah, I was looking at my boyfriend’s online statement and you charged him on the fourth and it looks like you’re trying to charge him again.”

Me: “…As of when?”

Caller: “Today!”

Me: “He… may have bought a gift certificate.”

Caller: “Oh…? OH! Okay, thank you.”

Go Checkout Your Own Christmas Spirit

| MO, USA | Right | December 19, 2015

(It is Christmas Eve and I am waiting in line to check out with some items already on the belt. A woman with a basket come up to pass me.)

Woman: “Excuse me, I need to get through.”

(Thinking she is joining the man in front of me, I move aside for her. She instead starts making her own space by shoving my items back on the belt to place her items.)

Me: “Excuse me, what are you doing?”

Woman: “Well, I have less items than you and I’m in a hurry.”

Me: “Um, so go use a U-scan or please wait like everyone else!”

Woman: “Well! So much for the Christmas Spirit, a**-hole!”

The Weather Outside Is Frightful, But The Customer Is Delightful

| Southfield, MI, USA | Right | December 19, 2015

(I’m a new courtesy clerk at a local large chain grocery store. I have lost my hat and gloves, but I have to do cart retrieval one way or the other. It’s not so bad, so I don’t mind. A total stranger stops me in the parking lot as I’m collecting carts.)

Customer: “Where’s your hat and gloves?”

Me: “I don’t have any.”

Customer: “What? It’s freezing! You should have hats and gloves! Let me buy you some!”

Me: “No! That’s all right! I don’t mind!”

(Customer walks away. Ten minutes later as I’m pulling carts in, I turn around and find myself face to face with the same customer. He pushes a matching set of expensive fleece hat and gloves into my hands.)

Customer: “Merry Christmas!”

Me: “Th- thank you!”

(I’ve been wearing the gloves and hat since, and I refuse to lose these!)
