You Bring In Baggage, You Leave With It

(This store is well-known for selling “personal” and “adult-oriented” items. You really shouldn’t give attitude to those who sell you these things, smack-dab in the middle of a very popular mall. When we ring up customers, as with many other stores, it asks us to ask them for an email address. Some people feel it necessary to be incredibly rude when they don’t want to give us their email. My manager is dealing with a customer who is buying one of the aforementioned “personal” items.)

Manager: “Can I get your email address?”

Customer: *in a very rude tone* “I don’t have one!”

Manager: “Do you know anyone who does? You can get a 20% off coupon for next time you come in.”

Customer: *with even more attitude* “I said I don’t have one!”

(The transaction is completed. My manager slides the personal item to the customer, sans bag.)

Customer: “Can I get a bag?”

Manager: *while walking away* “I don’t have one.”

From The Land Of “Buy-Milk” And Honey

, , , , , | Right | November 20, 2017

(Since I work in a grocery store, my parents often text me while I’m working to pick up stuff. Since I am forgetful, I have gotten into the habit of writing what I need to bring home on my hand. Today, my mother has asked me to buy milk, so naturally, I have, “Buy milk,” written on the back of my hand. A customer comes to my till to pay for her groceries. While handing me her card she notices the writing on my hand. She jumps back and grabs her chest like she is having a heart attack.)

Customer: “You filthy devil worshipers think that it’s cool to put those tattoos all over your bodies?”

Me: “I don’t have any tattoos.”

(The customer grabs my arm and points to the “Buy milk” written on my hand. She holds my hand high for everyone to see.)

Customer: “Devil worshiper! Devil worshiper! Don’t shop here; they hire f****** devil worshipers!”

(Eventually I wrestle my arm free and manage to calm her down.)

Me: “It’s not a tattoo. Why would I get a tattoo that says, ‘Buy milk?’ I wrote it in pen so that I will remember to buy milk after my shift.”

Customer: *suddenly cheerful* “Oh, well, have a good day.”
