I have season tickets for a VERY popular professional sports team. For the home opener, I was taking my friend who is the day bartender at one of the local bars. While I was waiting for her to finish up, one of the other customers starts talking to me
Customer: “Oh, man you guys are going to have so much fun. How did you get tickets?”
Me: “Yeah, the games are always fun. I have season tickets.”
Customer: “Really? What did you do, buy a few tickets from someone? So you have like a package of tickets?”
Me: “No, I have season tickets.”
Customer: “Ohhhhh… What are they? Your dad’s tickets?”
Me: “No. I have season tickets.”
Customer: “Well, who has the tickets? How did you get them?”
Me: “Look man, I don’t know how else to explain this to you. I have season tickets. They are in my name. I paid for them. I have had them for years. They are not my father’s tickets. They are not my brother’s tickets. They are not my boyfriend’s tickets. They are MY season tickets. The whole season. ALL of the games.”
I didn’t wait for a response and grabbed all of my stuff and moved to the other end of the bar. I don’t know why he couldn’t understand, but after he asked if they were my dad’s tickets, I can only assume that he didn’t think a woman could have season tickets for a professional sport.

Customer: “Can I have four shots of Fireball whiskey?”

Me: “Sure!”

Customer: “Can you make them really strong?”

Me: “…”

Truck Drivers, We Feel For You, But It’s Not Their Fault, Either

We work and live in a family-run pub and hotel. Due to the current lockdown and restrictions, we have had to close, as there is no way for us to operate safely and follow restrictions put in place.

All accommodation has been closed as well as most other tourism businesses. This happens about two weeks into the restrictions. We are having dinner and the phone rings. I answer the phone on instinct because I’m next to it when it rings.

Me: “Hello, how can I help you?”

Customer: “Can I book a room?”

Me: “I’m sorry, sir, we are currently closed due to restrictions.”

Customer: “But can I book a room?”

Me: “As I said, we are closed due to the restrictions and not operating the business.”

Customer: “So I can’t get a room?”

Me: “No, we are currently closed.”

Customer: “I’m a truck driver and I’m in town and need somewhere to stay.”

Me: “As I explained, we are closed due to the restrictions, and I believe so are the caravan park and other pubs, so I’m not sure where you can try.”

Customer: “Well, that’s just stupid.”

He then hung up rather abruptly. I get that it’s frustrating, but we didn’t choose to be closed; we had no option!

Pink And You’ll Miss It, Part 2

, , | Right | June 21, 2020

I am working at a beer and wine bar for a time-share presentation. An older woman leaves her seat and returns to my bar.

Customer: “I’m going to give this back to you and I think you can see why.”

She holds up her full glass which has a faded but large and noticeable lipstick stain.

Me: “I’m so sorry, ma’am. That type of lipstick is pretty nasty and often the dishwasher can’t fully get it off. Let me get you a fresh glass.”

The woman looks confused and looks back at her glass and points at the base.

Customer: “No, it’s chipped!”

I notice that she happens to be wearing the same shade smeared all over the lip of the glass.

Me: “Well, I guess we won’t have to worry about washing it, then.”

I was talking to a regular customer about the food options at the bar. I’ll point out, I am half black, and it’s a small town bar so a lot of our customers are older people who grew up in this town before it became (VERY slightly) more diverse. I’ve never had any issues with racism or anything, but I laughed really loud when I heard this gem…

Me- “I heard this new item is really good!”
Customer- “One time, my brother went to the park here in town, and he even took a colored girl with him! So he can’t be prejudice!”

How do you react to that!?
