(A customer comes in around 11:59 pm to buy a 6 pack of beer. By the time he comes up to the front, it is 12:02 am.)

Me: I’m sorry sir, but I can’t sell alcohol to anyone after midnight.

Customer: What?! It isn’t midnight yet!

Me: The clocks on our computers say that it is 12:02, and I have to go by our clocks, not yours. According to state law, I cannot sell alcohol to anyone after 12.

Customer: I came in before 12, that’s all that should count!

Me: I’m sorry, but your getting alcohol is not worth my losing my job.

(At this point, I’ve already grabbed the 6-pack and placed it behind the counter so that the customer couldn’t take it and run.)

Customer: This is ridiculous!

(He storms out, nearly breaking the door against the store’s exterior, muttering expletives under his breath the entire timw.)

Could Get Those Balloons Filled With Their Hot Air Alone

, , , , , | Working | June 27, 2018

(I’m at a dollar store to order some balloons for a party next week. I stand by the balloon ordering area and wait for someone to come and help me. The manager keeps glaring at me and continuing her conversation with a friend, to the point that I am uncomfortable and wondering why she’s so angry with me. After five minutes, she figures out that I’m not leaving, and stomps over to me.)

Me: “I’d like to order some balloons, please.”

Manager: *practically yelling at me* “How many?!”

Me: “Five.”

(She gets an angry look and starts ranting at me.)

Manager: “If you need more than three balloons, you have to give advance notice! I can’t just stop and—”

Me: *interrupting* “I don’t need them until next week.”

(Her demeanor completely changes, and is all smiles.)

Manager: “Of course! Thank you so much for giving notice; no one does that. I just had someone come in trying to get 30 balloons filled, and I don’t have time for that!”

(She gestured around at the store, which was empty except for one cashier checking out one customer. The whole time I was ordering balloons, she complained about how unreasonable other customers are. I get that customers are rude when they get refused, but maybe don’t start out by being openly hostile to anyone ordering balloons?)

So I had just checked in a guest who is here for the Colorado Indian Market. As he is checking in there is a gentleman in a cowboy hat behind him who is here for the Western Stock Show. This is what went down…

Guest: We need a luggage cart and there are none left! Every year this happens! Those damn stock show people take up all the carts!

Me: I’m sorry sir but we did just have a lot of people check in using the carts, I’m sure someone will bring one back down soon…

Guest: No…you need to go and find me a cart!

Cowboy: Listen sir, I assure you a cart will be brought back down, and if one is not I will personally go find one for you.

Guest: NO! That is THEIR job!

Cowboy: No, their job is to work the front desk. It is not their fault that people are lazy and SOME people make their job harder than it needs to!

Ya’ll…I just witnessed a real life cowboy and indian fight! I don’t know who that guy was but I want to buy him a beer!

(I work at a value price theater. Weekend nights tickets are full price at $10.79 for adults and we only offer a military discount. During the week before 6pm all tickets are only $5.29. This happened on a thursday at 4pm when most other theaters would be at full price. And if we had a senior price it would be $9.29)

Customer: Can we get two senior tickets for [movie].

Customer’s Wife(to customer): They don’t have a senior anymore

Customer (to me): Well why not?

Me(in a ‘revealing good new tone’): Well right now tickets are actually less than half price

Customer: Not for us.

I just gave him a blank stare for a moment then continued to say the price at if he accepted my explanation the way everyone else does.

Kind Gestures For A Dollar

, , , , | | Hopeless | May 28, 2018

(I am a sophomore in high school, and my sister has just left for college on the other side of the country. I miss her and am having a horrible day, having just figured out that I failed a big test in school. It is freezing cold outside, and I have depression and anxiety, so I am about to start crying. I have left my wallet at home, so I have to use the limited cash I had to pay for the bus fare. I get on the bus and put in my $1.10. The bus driver then rudely tells me that the fare has gone up recently, and that I need another $0.35. I only have a few pennies on me. I have put in my last dollar, and it will be getting dark soon, so I can’t wait for another bus. I am standing there, completely unsure what to do. Both my parents are working, so I can’t call either of them for a ride home.)

Woman: *puts the needed $0.35 cents into the machine*

Me: *shocked that someone is actually nice to the sobbing teenager*

Woman: *hands me a $1* “You look like you need a drink.”

Me: *completely missing the joke* “I’m 16…”

(That act of kindness helped me remember to start carrying $5 with me at all times, and my sister has recently come home for the summer from college. I wish I could thank the lady that helped me when I was at such a low point in my life.)
