The Biggest Winner Is Humanity

| Robeline, LA, USA | Awesome Customers, Money

Customer: “I’ll have a number seven ticket, please.”

Me: “Sure, that’ll be $2, please.”

Customer: “Thanks! I’m feeling lucky today. I hope that I win!”

Me: “Good luck! Remember, you’ve got to share with me if you do!”

Customer: “Okay!”

(He leaves and I think nothing of it as I always joke with customers about sharing winnings. A few days later, he comes back and hands me the same scratch ticket.)

Customer: “Hey! I won $50! Isn’t that great?”

Me: “Yeah! That’s awesome!”

(I do up the pay out and hand him the money, two 20s and a 10.)

Customer: *holding out the 10* “Could I get two $5 bills instead?”

Me: “Sure, there you go!”

Customer: “Thanks.” *he hands me $25* “There you go! That’s your share!”

Me: “What?”

Customer: “I said I’d give you part of the money if I won, so there you go! Have a nice day!”

(He left before I could argue. It’s people like that who make me have faith in humanity!)

Full Of Holiday Sneer

| Washington, DC, USA | At The Checkout, Awesome Customers, Bad Behavior, Food & Drink, Money, Theme Of The Month

(I am a customer at a convenience store buying coffee. Since the holidays are very near, I want to do something nice. There is an older gentleman behind me, about 65 years old, with two cups of coffee.)

Me: *to the cashier* “I’ll pay for his, too.”

Cashier: *smiles* “Okay, that’ll be $[price].”

(I pay, and then the man walks up to pay.)

Cashier: “It was taken care of, sir.”

Man: “No, no, no, why? Here, I need to pay for this.”

Me: “I got it for you. Happy holidays!”

Man: *scowls* “Who do you think you are, some kind of good Samaritan? I can buy my own coffee.”

Me: “…I guess I was only trying to be nice…”

Man: “Well, I don’t want it!”

Chat Up Knock Down

| LA, USA | Bad Behavior, Rude & Risque, Top

(My boyfriend, who is 5’9″ and 175 lbs. of lean muscle, has come to visit me at work. He’s standing across the counter from me when a customer walks in. Not wanting to be in the way, he moves to stand near our fountain drink. The customer walks up to the counter and gives me a lecherous smirk.)

Customer: “How you doin’ hot stuff? You sure are fine.”

Me: *rolls eyes* “I’m not interested. I have a boyfriend, and he’s—”

Customer: “Yeah, sure. I’ll bet he’s a p****. I’ll show you a real man.”

Me: “I’ll have you know my boyfriend was in the Army and is an MMA fighter, so—”

Customer: “That don’t mean s***! Give me your number and I’ll show you what a real man can do for you.”

(I realize I’m not going to get through to this customer, so I sigh and look over to my boyfriend.)

Me: “Babe, will you please explain to him that I know what a real man is, and what a real man can do?”

(Hearing this, my boyfriend stands up straight, smirks, and cracks his knuckles.)

Boyfriend: “Gladly, baby girl. I was wondering when you were going to let me step in.”

Customer: *pales* “Oh, uh, never mind!” *runs out of the store*

Boyfriend: *laughs* “Good thing he didn’t know I need a knee replacement, huh?”

Crying Over No Spilt Milk

| Detroit, MI, USA | Extra Stupid, Food & Drink

(I work in a convenience store, and am calling to make a dairy order.)

Me: “Hi, this is [store] calling. I’d like to place my order.”

Rep: “Sure! Whenever you’re ready.”

Me: “I’ll take 15 ‘2%’, 5 whole, 2 skim—”

Rep: “I’m very sorry; can you hold on just one moment?”

Me: “Sure, take your time.”

(The rep puts me on hold for a few moments before returning.)

Rep: “I’m very sorry about that. I had this guy on another line screaming at me about how he didn’t get his Pepsi order. It took me a few minutes to finally get a word in and to let him know that he had called the dairy company.”

Me: *laughing* “Are you serious?”

Rep: “Yes! I’ve never had that happen to me! Haha! Okay, I can take the rest of your order now!”

Hug And A Smile Make It All Worth While

| Dallas, TX, USA | Awesome Customers, Family & Kids, Theme Of The Month

(I am standing in line to check out at a local convenience store. The employees are very busy with what appears to be a massive restocking job. One employee has taken a 30 second break to get a drink when a child who can’t be older than 7 speaks up to her.)

Child: “You’re not smiling. You have to smile! Everyone has to smile!”

Employee: “Aw, I’m sorry, I’m just busy.” *smiles a little for the child*

Child: “You know what you deserve?”

Employee: “No, what’s that?”

Child: “A hug!”

(The child hugs the employee.)

Employee: “Aw, thank you!”

(The entire place seemed to brighten up after this and the kid’s parents couldn’t stop grinning either. It brightened all our days!)
