Make You Fall Off Your Chair

| FL, USA | Bizarre, History, Money

(I am at a gas station and the customer in front of me is paying. He notices he has an Alabama state quarter.)

Customer: “Is that an electric chair on there? Was Alabama the first state to use the electric chair?”

Cashier: “No, sir, that’s Helen Keller.”

Customer: “Why the h*** did they put Helen Keller in an electric chair?!”

Not Even Time To Air One’s Grievances

| TX, USA | Crazy Requests, Transportation

(It is almost 6:30 am and I get out of my car to walk to the fuel center to open for the day. When I’m halfway there I bid good morning to a lady at a pump.)

Customer: “…Do you work here?”

Me: *looks down at uniform* “Yes, ma’am.”

Customer: *flicks receipt* “I got gas. Does the air machine work?”

(Our customers get complimentary air with a same visit gas purchase.)

Me: “As far as I know, yes. I can turn it on for you as soon as I get inside. Go ahead and pull up to the machine.”

(I take not six steps; the kiosk is still a few yards away.)

Customer: “Is it on yet?”

It’s A Dry Pizza State

| Billings, MT, USA | Food & Drink

(I am working the graveyard shift at a gas station. Company policy has us lock up the beer case at 1:45 AM as the law is to stop serving/selling alcohol after 2 AM. It’s 2:10 and a very drunk customer walks in and straight to the beer case.)

Customer: “Why is the beer locked up?!”

Me: “Sorry, we stop selling at 1:45.”

Customer: “Noooo!”

(He hangs head and walks over to the frozen pizza section. Just as he reaches for the handle the lights in the freezer turn off because it started defrosting.)

Customer: *looks at me and starts crying* “I can’t buy pizza either?!”
