Okay, But You Have To Bring It Back Again When The Sale Is Over

(My store is closing. For the first few weeks after this is announced, all merchandise is reduced by 25%. After a period, the remaining product is reduced to 50% off. A customer comes in.)

Customer: “When did everything go 50% off? I was here last week and bought things 25% off.”

Me: “Just the other day, ma’am.”

Customer: “My stuff is still in the car. Can you do a price adjustment?”

Me: “No, ma’am.”

Customer: “What if I return it and then buy it at the new price?”

Me: “Sorry, ma’am, we aren’t accepting returns.”

Customer: “You can’t do anything for me?”

Me: “I’m afraid not.”

Customer: “Well, what good are you?” *leaves*

I’m a 38 year old white guy (this becomes important later) working grave yard shift at a hotel when a couple comes in (white woman, black guy)
Customer: We’d like a room with two double beds
Me certainly that will be (quotes price)
Customer: we can get it for xx.xx online (proceeds to book room on internet after it goes through) how much is that with taxes?
Me: quotes ammount
Customer: we shouldn’t have to pay taxes.  Taxes are illegal.
Me: No they aren’t regardless you have to pay them
Customer: there are people who don’t pay taxes
Me: And they go to prison you still need to pay taxes
Customer: Read the 16th amendment (the US constitutional amendment that allows for taxation I looked it up later so in fact it proves them wrong)
Me: I don’t want to get into a political argument you have to pay the taxes
They pay for the room and leave.  Then decide they want a different room type, then have a problem with the tv in the room.  I try to fix the problem and go back to the desk to get them a new room they come down.
Customer: we want a refund
Me: Certainly one moment
Custoomer: we want a refund or an upgrade
Me: (assuming at this point they are just going to keep complaining) I’ll give you the refund hold on
I refund the money
Female customer: we’ll talk to the other guy the fat one (name)
Me: very well have a good evening
Black customer: you’re a servant
Me: very well have a good evening
Customer:look that up in the black dictionary servant means slave
Me: you are no longer a customer here please leave or I will contact the police
Customer: your a slave
Me: and your a tresspasser
Customer then walks out.  This is the point I get a chance to check the black list (customers not allowed to stay with us any more) and discover they are both on it.

(The store that I worked at had been closed for around five minutes. The managers hadn’t been able to lock the doors yet. I was folding towels when a man burst in with two teenage girls)

Me: Sir, I’m sorry, but we’re closed.

Man: What? Is the whole mall closed?

Me: Yes, the whole mall closed about five minutes ago.

Man: (to the girl whom I assume was his daughter) Where do you have gift cards to?

Girl: (lists a bunch of places including our store)

Man: Where’s your juniors departement?

Me: Downstairs, but we’re closed now.

Man: Come on, girls, let’s go downstairs and get something real quick. Just pick out a T-shirt or something.

Me: Sir, we’re closed!

(He walked away and took the escalator downstairs.)

(It’s the final week leading up to Christmas, and I am suffering from a terrible case of what I call “Christmas brain.” I have a lot going on both at work and in my personal life, and I’m not getting enough sleep on top of chronic illness. So I’m starting to jumble things in my head a little. Fortunately, the other workers in my small store sympathize and we all have some fun with it. We are running a sale in which 100 different products are being offered at 25% off.)

Me: *to customer* “And as you shop, keep in mind that we have select items on sale for 100% off! Wait…”

(Everyone within earshot starts laughing, including me.)

Customer: “What a great deal!”

Manager: “[My Name], you’re fired.”

Me: “Okay, so really, there are a hundred things for 25% off. If you have any questions, please ask one of my coworkers. I have to go clean out my locker because I’ve just been fired.”

(I put my head on my manager’s shoulder and he gives me a friendly pat. I love my job.)
