(Two young men come into the bookstore and immediately head to the science books. There is a girl there. The men start yelling.)

Rude Customer #1: “Do you really think you’re smart enough to handle those books?”
Rude Customer #2: “Yeah, you should stick to the GIRLY section.”

(I am speechless at their behavior and try to intervene.)

Me: “You have no idea if she is sma–”
Rude Customer #2: “Stop talking to me like that, you’re just a GIRL.”
(To make a point, he snatches a book from the girl’s hand)
Girl: “Watch it–”
Rude Customer #1: “You had no right to have that book. We’re much smarter than anyone here, especially you.”
Rude Customer #2: “We even made a program that shows the scale of the universe!”
Girl: “Okay, I’m pretty sure who you are now.”
(She unzips her jacket to reveal a shirt with the logo of an internet show that the two made.)
Rude Customer #1: “You don’t even deserve to watch it! Stop polluting it with how unintelligent you are.”
(All of a sudden, the girl picks up two books, throws them in the faces of the men, and runs away.)
Girl: “I think you’re the one who isn’t well-read! And I’ll never watch it again if YOU two made it.”
(Rude Customer #2 drops the book and they both leave the store. The girl got a discount on the book!)

A Howler For The Growler

, , , , | Right | January 20, 2020

(I work at a craft beer tasting room where we only serve our company’s product. One night, a man comes in, casually dressed but nothing out of the ordinary.)

Coworker: “Hi, welcome to [Business].”

(As it is the customer’s first time here, we explain the sizes, how you can get beer to-go, etc., but he cuts us off.)

Customer: “I just want something that will get me drunk!”

(I’m thinking at this point, “We are not the place for you.”)

Me: “What do you normally like to drink?”

Customer: “[Non-Craft Beer Brand] or malt liquor.”

Coworker: “[Beer Brand] is typically 4-5%. [Beer #1] and [Beer #2] are both 1 or 2% higher, and that really makes a difference.”

(My coworker serves a couple of samples.)

Customer: “[Beer #1] is kind of tangy, but I like [Beer #2]. Can I get a 32-ounce?”

Coworker & Me: “That is only to-go. Our largest size here is 16-ounce.”

Customer: “I could get a 64-ounce, then. There’s got to be a chair outside.”

Me: “Sir, that’s illegal. You’d have to take the beer home to drink.”

(The man still tried to buy a growler, but the minute we mentioned the price, he claimed that was too much for today. The ironic thing is that there are many restaurants and bars nearby that would have hard liquor for “getting drunk quickly.” I still think he was looking for a liquor store, and somehow ended up with us.)

Glass-Roots Parenting

, , , , | Right | January 19, 2020

(I work in a store that sells a variety of items, including a lot of glass and ceramic. Stuff gets broken during the course of the day, which is no big deal; we sweep up the majority of it. It’s difficult to catch everything, though, so sometimes a shard or two gets missed. For some reason, parents let their kids run around barefoot in the store, and I do warn them about the glass situation. Most parents will pick their kids up, put their shoes on, etc. And then, there’s this lady.)

Me: *seeing a toddler walking with bare feet* “Oh! Ma’am, just so you know, glass gets broken in here quite often. We try our best to pick it up, but sometimes we miss bits. You might want to pick him up.”

Customer: “Oh! But he’s so wiggly! He needs to burn off energy!”

Me: “I understand, ma’am, but I don’t want him to get hurt if he steps on something.”

Customer: *waving me off* “Oh, I’ll deal with it when it happens. Whatever.”

(I could not control the look on my face at her shitty parenting, and she turned red and marched away. She left soon after that, carrying her kid. I just… how bad of a parent do you have to be if you don’t care that your kid gets glass in his feet?)

A Real Hole Of A Store

, , , , , | Right | January 18, 2020

(I’m an electrician, and I’ve been dispatched to a store that has had a car plow through the front of it. The entire front of this small retail location has been boarded over. A manager is in the empty store with me — for security reasons — and I am up a ladder, working on the wiring in the ceiling. We both hear some rattling the front door.)

Manager: *calling* “We’re closed!”

(The rattling stops.)

Me: “Some people, right?”

Manager: “Yeah.”

(Suddenly, there’s a loud tearing crunch and both of us look dumbfounded at a woman, who has ripped several boards off the hole in the front of the store and climbed in.)

Customer: “Hey, your door wouldn’t open. I just need some things real quick—”

Manager: “Ma’am, we are closed. You can’t be in here.”

Customer: “But I just need—”

Manager: “No. We are closed. Does it even look like we can ring you up for anything?”

(Some cleanup has happened, but the shelves are empty and pushed all the way into the back of the store. There are no registers and most of the lights are off. I’m up a six-foot ladder with wiring hanging down around me, and I’m just staring down at this woman with a disbelieving expression.)

Customer: “But you’re here, so you can get me what I need out of the back.”

Manager: “No. We’re closed for business. And you are trespassing. You need to leave.”

(The woman protests, but is eventually herded out the door.)

Me: “What…?”

Manager: “Don’t think about it. The more you think about it, the more the stupid will burn. And we cannot afford an insulation fire right now.”

(The manager found a hammer and hammered the boards back into place. Several more people tried the door that day, but that lady was the only one who ripped a board off the hole in the wall to get in.)
