(A customer is looking through a book debunking apocalypse scares.)

Customer: “Wait, what do they mean the apocalypse hasn’t happened yet?!”

Sure Thing, Sweet Cheeks

| Ontario, Canada | Language & Words, Rude & Risque

(We have international newspapers that we keep behind us at the till. Also, I’m female. I’ve just finished ringing up some British newspapers for a customer.)

Me: “Have a brilliant day.”

Customer: “Can I take a look at your rack?”

(This not only catches me off guard, but all the staff and customers within earshot, who turn and look at us.)

Me: “Pardon?”

Customer: “I just want to see what else you’ve got to offer.”

(Everybody is still staring.)

Customer: *realizing what he’s said* “Oh! Your newspaper rack.”

Weekend Roundup: Time Travel

, , | Not Always Right | Roundups

Time Travel! This week, we show it’s only a matter of “time” before you run into customers with no grasp of time—past, present, or future!

  1. Someone’s About To Get Smacked To The Future:
    An unsuspecting wife gets sent out by a husband on a fool’s errand to look for a flux capacitor—in a flying DeLorean, no doubt.
  2. A Tale Of Time Traveling Tune-Ups:
    The customer is always right, even if it means ripping a hole in the space-time continuum.
  3. Doctor Sue:
    Look, man, we all wish your replica TARDIS actually flew through time, but unless you’re a Time Lord with a chameleon circuit, you’re barking up the wrong police box.
  4. Eastern Standard Time Travelers:
    Getting time zones mixed up with time travel? No big deal, although teleporting New York City three hours into the future would be kinda cool.
  5. Please See The “Time Travel” Section:
    This dinosaur-craving bookstore customer has been watching a little bit too much Jurassic Park!
