(So this woman is buying these individual plant holders, the kind you can put water in and pop onto the end of a flower to keep them from drying out, and then she bought up her phone so I could scan her coupon. The coupon she had me scan was a typical one for the store that is 40% off of One Regular Priced Item. I hit total and this is what happened.)

Her: that’s 40% off?

me: yes. It took it off of one of the items you bought.

Her: No, you’re supposed to take it off of all of them because they’re all the same item.

Me: No, that coupon is only for one item.

Her: But they did it at the other store!

Me: Well, that’s not what that coupon does. That coupon only takes it off of one item.

Her: But they did it at the other store! They gave me 40 off all of my items because they were all the same item!

Me: Yes, but that’s not the coupon you gave me, ma’am. That is what that coupon does. It takes 40 off one item.

Her: Whatever! I’m not going to argue with you.

(And then she finished the transaction and left my counter. Not five minutes later I see her babbling to my manager who is walking to the counter next to mine while she’s going “They did it at the other store! I don’t understand why you can’t either.” And my manager calmly asking “And which store did this?” Presumably to call it in, because this is not our policy at all, much less doing such a thing with that coupon.)

(I’m checking out an older gentleman who pays for his purchase with a debit card with a chip attached, but the machine doesn’t read the card.)

Me: “Sir, could you put the card back in? You took it out too soon.”

Older Gentleman: “Story of my life!”

(I held it together until he left. It was a good thing it was slow, as after he left I laughed really hard!)

(At my store, like most, we have impulse buys at our registers: lotions, candy, small toys, etc. Among these items are individually wrapped caramels.)

Customer: What’s this?
Me: Caramel.
Customer: Chocolate?
Me: No… It’s caramel.

(I work at a craft store “Where Creativity Happens”, but recently our competitor that sells fabric opened up near mine. Since I am a huge crafter, I went to the grand opening to purchase fabric. I must also add that I have blue hair, and am fairly easily identifiable)

Me: *waiting in line for the cutting counter*

Customer: EXCUSE ME! *grabs my arm* Where are your buttons?”

Me: I’m sorry Ma’am, I don’t work here-


Me: I work at the other one!

Customer: Then why are you here?!

Me: Because I’m buying fabric?

(I’m ringing up a customer when I need to call my manager up for a problem with a return.  While we’re waiting, a mother with two young kids comes into the line. The kids grab some balls out of a bin and start throwing them around while their mother is playing around with her phone.  This has been happening all day, and customers don’t take me seriously when I ask them to stop their kids so I ignore it. My manager comes up and scolds the kids and ask them to put the balls away.)
Mother(to older kid, probably around 8): What did you think you were doing? Why did you let your brother do that? You were supposed to be watching him!
(Don’t blame your kid woman, watch them yourself!)
