(I worked at a fairly popular video game store before the release of GTAV on console and the following happened)

Me: “Welcome to [store] how may i help you?”

Customer: “Yeah, hi.. I’m looking for that new Grand Theft Auto game on PC?”

Me: “If you’re referring to GTAV, sadly that game will not be coming to steam this year. We do however can sell you a $20 steam card so you may purchase GTA4 on PC”

Customer: “NO! I ALREADY HAVE GTA4 ON PC I WANT GTAV!!”

(note this customer looks to be about 14 or 15.)

Me: “ALRIGHTY THEN! But i apologize we cannot sell you a game that does not exist on your platform.”

Customer: “I’m calling my mom and shes gonna get your a** fired for being a massive f***!!”

Me: “well our number is on the door. have fun”

(I go proceed to help out other customers and about 30 minutes later an older woman bursts into the store with the boy)

Lady: “WHY AINT YOU SELLIN HIS GAME TO HIM?!”

Me: “As i have told him before, that game will not be available on PC. Only on the PS3 and 360”

Lady: “LIES! MY BOY SAID IT WAS HERE SO IT MUST BE HERE!”

(At this point it was causing alot of commotion so my manager stepped in and tried explaining to them the exact same things I’ve told them)

Lady: “WHATS YOUR DISTRICTS PHONE NUMBER! OR YOUR BOSSES BOSS OR EVEN YOUR OWNER?! CAUSE IM GONNA GET YOUR A**** FIRED FOR LIEN AND CHEATIN!”

(They leave the store and a couple days later we receive a call from corporate saying that they’re supposed to fire us because we don’t carry a game that doesn’t exist yet. Then just a whole bunch of laughs and end call)

That’s Not How Retail Works, That’s Not How Any Of It Works

(I’m working at a computer store when the original Wii comes out. Due to Nintendo being the company they are, they gave certain places only a small pallet of these game consoles. We were sold out within the first three hours of getting them.)

Customer: *comes up with crying child* “Excuse me. I’m sorry, but we’ve been to three stores already. Do you have the Wii?”

Me: “Sorry, ma’am, we sold out.” *I look down at the crying little girl feeling bad*

(Suddenly the woman looks flustered and a little upset.)

Customer: “Well, can you, like, go back there and make one for us?”

Me: “Um, ma’am, that’s not how it works…”

(I take the next ten minutes explaining to this woman how retail stores work… You would think being someone who lives in the city and goes to multiple retail stores would know this?)

Don’t Play With Someone Else’s Grapes

(I am shopping when a random guy I don’t know comes over, drops several boxes of food in my cart, then sticks his hand in a bag of grapes I was purchasing and starts rubbing them in a very creepy, sensual way.)

Me: “Um, what the h*** are you doing?”

Customer: *surprised* “Oh, God! Sorry. I thought this was my wife’s cart.”

(He ran over to another cart at the end of the aisle with a woman near it and began talking to her. I could just make out her saying, “Really? Again?” before they left.)

We Want To See What They Would Do For A Door That Is Alarmed

(I have just taken over handling the company’s soda machine after the previous person quit. After dealing with at least one jam per week and hearing complaints from coworkers in different departments, I decide to put a sign on the machine.)

Sign: “If the soda machine needs attention, please notify [My Name].”

Coworker #1: “The soda machine looks lonely. It needs attention.”

Coworker #2: “The soda machine needed attention so I gave it a hug.”

(I overhear this conversation:)

Child: “My mommy is pregnant.”

Coworker: “Congratulations. Do you know what she is having?”

Child: “She is having a boy…”

(Pause:)

Child: “…or a girl.”

Coworker: *laughing* “Well, I’m glad she’s not having a puppy.”
