I Believe The Flavor You’re Looking For Is ‘Irony’

| Lafayette, LA, USA | Lafayette, LA, USA | Bad Behavior, Food & Drink

(I’ve seen as many as three people a day do this…)

Customer: *picking through multi-flavored candy in order to only get the “good” flavors* “How come people keep picking through this and only taking the good flavors?!”


Don’t Let Children Take The Children

| Lafayette, LA, USA | Family & Kids, Popular

(The store I work in sells plush toys, and it’s sometimes a struggle for parents to convince their children to leave without buying any. However, one customer manages to come up with a wonderful story.)

Customer: “We can’t take them, honey! They’re the lady’s children! We can’t take her children!”

(I am amazed at her ingenuity, and decide to help by playing along.)

Me: *doing my best not to laugh* “I’d be SO SAD if somebody took my babies!”

Customer: “See! You don’t want to make the lady cry! So, we’ll leave the lady’s children with the lady!”

(They paid for their candy and left, without any plush toys. I burst out laughing as soon as they were gone.)

Just Run With It

| Lafayette, LA, USA | At The Checkout, Awesome Customers

(I’m ringing up an older woman.)

Me: “That’ll be [price], please!”

Customer: “Well, since you said ‘please’…”

Me: *laughing* “What, if I hadn’t, you’d have grabbed it and run?!”

Customer: “Yeah!”
