(I’m working at a snack cart. We sale mainly fresh fruit, but we also have chips. It’s no later than 11am. A kid and his mother pass by the cart and the kid asks his mom to buy him a bag of cheetos)
Mom (to kid): No, you’ve already had three bags today.
Me (to kid): Perhaps you’d like a piece of fresh pineapple.
Mom (to me, with an attitude): If he would eat that kind of stuff I’d be over the moon.
(She ended up buying him the cheetos anyway, which would make it his fourth bag that day, and it’s before 11am. I also can’t help but think that he might go for fruit if his mother encouraged it, although I may be biased because my kids love fruit.)

I work at the front desk of a small company that hosts tech training for various clients from around the country. We assign the classes into separate rooms so when someone comes in we can tell them exactly where to go. Some people are experienced travelers, prepared and know how the sites are set up, while others are not. The following conversation took place earlier last, but similar ones happen more often than I want to admit.

New Client: (peeks around the door, looking lost) “Hello?”

Me: “Hi, good morning! You’re looking for the training center, right?”

Client: “Yeah.”

Me: “You’re in the right place! Which training are you here for?”

Client: “Umm… I don’t know.”

Me: “Okay, what company is running the training?”

Client: “I don’t know that either.”

Me: (while showing him my physical copy of classes and companies we are hosting for the week) “The classes we have starting today are [class #1], [class #2], [class #3], and [class #4]. Do any of those sound familiar?”

Client: “Uh… umm no, none of them.”

Me: (At this point I’m starting to worry, thinking I was given the wrong schedule or that his training was cancelled and he flew out here for no reason – which has happened before!) “When you signed up for the training did you receive a confirmation email? That should have the class name and company information.”

Client: “Maybe, let me check.” (scrolls through his emails on his phone quickly) “Uhhh, I’m not seeing it.”

Me: (now running out of ideas) “Let me double check with my boss and we’ll make certain I’ve got the correct schedule here.”

(At this moment another man walks in, who turns out to be the Instructor for this mystery class)

Instructor: “Hi there! I’m teaching [name of training] for [company], which room are we in this week?”

Me: “Good morning, you’ll be in Room C this week, straight down the hall on the left.”

Client: “Oh that’s my class! Haha I guess you do have the right schedule, thanks for your help!” (follows Instructor towards classroom)

Me: (dumbfounded and screaming internally) “No problem.”

My mom and I walk into a popular department store in an outlet. We’re shopping for my dad and my mom spots a really nice sweater within seconds of walking in. The sweater is originally $79.95 but it’s 70% off at the moment. My mom remembers that we had 2 coupons for this store, an 10% off and a $20 off. To my surprise, the cashier tells us we can use both.

Cashier: Okay, your total today will be $11.45.
Mom: What? Did you apply all the discounts?
Cashier: Yes ma’am, plus the coupons.
Mom: The total should be way less than that.
Cashier: Let me check..Oh yes, you’re correct!
*a few seconds of rescanning*
Cashier: Your new total is $3.75.
Me: WHAT?
My mom has a smug look on her face.

Gelato-No-No

, , , | Right | September 22, 2020

I work in a gelato store. Many people ask what gelato is, but not usually like this. Two teenage girls walk in and look at the gelato.

Me: “Hello! Would you like to try some gelato?”

Girl #1: “No.”

I see they are looking at it like they want some.

Me: “I can give you a sample if you’d like.”

Girl #1: “What is this stuff?”

Me: “It’s gelato. Italian ice cream. Would you like to try it?”

Girl #1: “Oh, no, thanks.”

She keeps looking at it.

Girl #1: “Can I try the [flavor]?”

She tries.

Girl #1: “Is this ice cream?”

Me: “Yes, Italian ice cream. It’s called gelato.”

Girl #1: “Oh, I don’t want gelato.”

She then proceeded to buy some.

(I’m the customer in this one. My boyfriend wanted to buy a coffee, so I agree to take him to a fast food joint to get him one. We get into the drive-thru, order, and pull up to the first window. The window opens, and the employee has a headset on.

Employee: “Okay, that’s 1.08. Would you like any sauce?”

Me: *confused, thinking maybe the order got mixed with another* “Um… we ordered a coffee?”

(Suddenly, my boyfriend starts laughing hysterically. I’m still confused as I hand over the money, until I realized…)

Me: “Oh God… she was talking to the guy behind us, wasn’t she?”

(My boyfriend, laughing to hard to speak, merely nods with tears in his eyes. Luckily the employee didn’t say anything about it. It’s amazing how they can multi-task like that, though!)
