Unfiltered Story #151024

A family of 3 walk into the Convenient store I work at. The woman buys an 18 rack of Rainer Beer and all of them leave.

2 Hours Later…

The woman and her 12 year old daughter walk up to the Store while i’m smoking a cigarette outside.

ME:” How’s it going!”
GIRL: “Good!”
MOM: “Mneh.”

I follow them into the store noticing that the mother of this girl has clearly slammed majority of the beers she bought earlier and is Hammered.

GIRL: “Excuse me. Could you tell me where the Ice is.”
ME: “Yeah, its just around the corner in a cooler.”
GIRL: Thanks!”

They grab a bag of Ice and come up to the counter.

I ring up the Ice at $1.99.

ME: “Alright, so thats gonna be 2 Bucks.”
GIRL: “Ok.”

The girl hands me two ones while her mother drunkenly is staring at the floor.

ME: “Alright.”

(This is where shit gets VERY WEIRD!)

ME: ” Would you like your Penny back.”
GIRL: “No thanks.”
MOM: WHAT, THE FUCK DID YOU JUST SAY TO MY DAUGHTER!? I WANT TO SPEAK TO YOUR MANAGER NOW! WHAT KIND OF SICK PERVERT DO YOU HAVE TO BE TO ASK MY DAUGHTER IF SHE WANTS HER PANTIES OFF!!!”
ME: …
GIRL: “MOM! He asked if I wanted my PENNY BACK!”
MOM: …
ME: EH… Yeah.
MOM: Oh…

The mom then palmed her face in embarrassment. Took the penny and her and her Daughter walked out of the store.

ME: “Fuck My Life!”

There’s No Dedication To Medication

, , , , , | Healthy | September 12, 2018

(I work in assisted living as a nurse, overseeing over eighty residents.)

Resident’s Daughter: “I’ve been thinking about talking to the doctor about stopping my mom’s [antipsychotic medication].”

Me: “Is there a particular reason you’ve been thinking about this?”

Resident’s Daughter: “Yes, after visiting her a lot I can see she’s been doing much better, and I don’t think she needs it anymore.”

(This specific medication stops hallucinations, delusions, etc., and the resident has been on it over a year without side effects.)

Me: “Yes, she is doing great; the medication is working great for her.”

Resident’s Daughter: “Well, I want her to stop the medication; she doesn’t need it anymore.”

(At this point the resident’s daughter is getting irritated, and there is no reasoning with her.)

Me: “Well, the doctor will need to fax us a signed order to stop any medications; you can call and request this. But I can’t just stop a medication without a doctor’s orders.”

(The resident’s daughter stormed off in a huff.)

When Trivia Is Not Trivial

, , , , | Working | February 8, 2018

(We’re organizing a fundraiser for our local radio station and have settled on doing pub trivia. I’ve secured a location for the event, but our program manager wants to do it at a burrito house instead. I’m trying to explain why that won’t work.)

Program Manager: “Well, if you don’t like it, you don’t like it.”

Me: “It’s not about liking it or not liking it; it’s about whether it will work or not.”

Program Manager: “It’s about not arguing about it anymore, because if you don’t like it, it won’t happen, so let’s be productive, m’kay?”

Me: *head-desk*

Their Training Must Have Been Comped

, , , , | Working | December 1, 2017

(We have patronized a particular drive-in restaurant in our hometown for some time. The food is good, but the servers aren’t always the most knowledgeable. On a previous visit, the server forgot some side ingredients for my wife’s taco salad, so they wrote in their book that we were to receive a free one on our next visit. At our next visit:)

Server: *bringing our food to our car* “Okay, your total is [total].”

Me: “And that’s with the taco salad comped, correct?”

Server: *looking at receipt* “Yes!”

(I pay and receive the food and receipt. She leaves, and only then do I notice that we’ve paid for the taco salad. I go back in the restaurant and find the server.)

Me: “I thought you said the taco salad had been comped?”

Server: “It was! See, it’s listed right there on the receipt!” *pointing to the line where the item was listed at its regular price*

Me: “No, it’s supposed to be no charge.”

Server: “Oh… is that what ‘comped’ means? I thought you were asking if you’d ordered it!”

Will Be Cashing Yourself Out

, , , , , | Right | October 18, 2017

(I am having trouble finding an item in the hardware store. I don’t see an employee around, so I go up front to ask the cashiers of they can help me find one of their coworkers. Both cashiers are female.)

Me: *what I’m thinking* “I know that cashiers aren’t usually allowed to leave the front, but can you find someone to help me in hardware?”

Me: *what I actually say* “I know you’re just cashiers, but can you find someone to help me in hardware?”

(I am so sorry! I’m sure that you are very capable! Thank you for helping me anyway!)
