Doesn’t Understand The Custom Part Of Customer, Part 11

, , , , | Right | October 21, 2018

(I’m working as a cashier at a big supermarket, and this lady comes up to my till, and I start ringing up her items.)

Customer: “Take it off!”

Me: *point to the last item I just rang up* “This one?”

Customer: “Yes.”

(I take it off and put it on a small desk on my right side so a coworker can come and put it back.)

Customer: “I want that!”

Me: *points to the thing I just took off* “This one?”

Customer: “Yes.”

(I ring it up again.)

Customer: “Take it off!”

(I take it off, and put it back on the table.)

Customer: “No, I want this…”

(This goes on and on for a few minutes, until…)

Customer: “Oh, I want this, but I just won’t pay for it.”

Me: “Sorry, but that is not how this works. If you want anything from this store, you’ll have to pay for it.”

Customer: “B****!”

(She paid for everything and left.)

That Prank Didn’t Bring Home The Bacon

, , , , | Right | October 15, 2018

(Years ago I heard classmates talk about a prank where you’d go to a burger shop and order a cheeseburger without cheese and have fun without how flustered the cashier becomes. A few years later, I am working as a cashier at a burger shop and a group of teenagers walks in.)

Teenager: *the rest of group tries to stifle some giggling* “I’d like a cheeseburger with extra bacon, without bacon, without cheese.”

Me: *genuinely deadpan* “So, a cheeseburger with extra bacon, without bacon, without cheese?”

Teenager: “Yes.”

Me: “Okay.”

(I enter exactly that, because extra bacon causes the price to go up, but the instruction to not remove bacon does not lower the price again.)

Me: “Your food will be ready in a moment.”

Teenager: “So, a cheeseburger with extra bacon, without bacon, without cheese?”

Me: “That is what you ordered, isn’t it?”

(Not sure if there is anything to learn from this story, but I hope the “prank” was worth the fifty cents.)

(I work at a bakery inside a supermarket. We offer to butter peoples buns etc. We are standing with our backs to the customers while buttering. It’s a very slow day. My coworker is buttering a bun for customer #1. Since there isn’t anything else to do, I stand next to her cleaning. I also have my back to the customer area. I don’t notice that a new customer has arrived)

Customer #2 (with and annoyed voice): Is it possible to get some service around here? I’ve been waiting forever.

(Startled I turn around quickly to help customer #2)

Customer #1: Hey, relax. Can’t you see that they’re both working?

Me: Oh, thank you, but that’s just my dad kidding around.

Dad (laughing at his own joke): Here’s your lunch, see you later.

(I love that I have customers standing up for me, even when it’s not really necessary)

(I had just gotten my lunch from a deli inside a large grocery store when a lady with her two kids stop me)

Lady: Excuse me? hey! Excuse me! Do you know where the electronics are?

Me: I don’t know, I don’t work here.

Lady: What?.. oh.. but you just looked like someone who worked here

Me: Nope, sorry *walks off*

(Note, I was wearing a large black hoodie )

I’m a man with a big beard at the time, and I was working in a retirement home, when an old lady suffering form dementia, and I had our usual conversations after dinner, but this time her dementia really played a trick on me.

Old lady: “Oh [random female name] you are such a nice young girl.”

Me: “Thanks [her name], but I’m not a girl.”

Old lady: *in a concerned voice* “Are you sure?”

Me: *not sure how to react* “Yes… at least last time i checked”

Old lady: “Are you sure?”
