(We have a regular that comes into our store often to look at items behind our jewelry counter, and when she does she doesn’t notice anything that happens around her. On my way to help her I put on a giant sombrero to see if she would notice, and she doesn’t. As she leaves, and I am disappointed, a male customer approaches and gestures toward me.)
Customer: How much is that?
Me: (gesturing to the hat) The sombrero?
Customer: No, you.
Me: Uhhh do you want to see anything?
(He picks out a pair of shoes from behind the counter and I lead him to my register to check out. He gets distracted and goes off to look at shirts, and I stare at my manager across the store hoping he’ll come shut my register down before the man gets back. Thankfully, he did, and I didn’t have to deal with him any longer.)

He Didn’t Like It And That’s… Nice?

Me: “Thanks for calling [Restaurant] in [Town]. What can I do for you tonight?”

Caller: “Hi, uh, I ordered for a delivery, but I didn’t like it.”

Me: “I’m sorry. Let’s see what we can do about that.” *while I’m pulling up all delivery orders for the day* “So, what was up with the food?”

Caller: “Uh, I dunno.”

Me: “O-okay. Was it overcooked? Cooked not enough? Not the right ingredients or toppings? What did you order?”

Caller: “We got a pizza and some wings.”

Me: *now that the page has loaded* “Okay, what was the address?”

Caller: *gives address* 

Me: “Huh. I don’t have anything matched in the system for that address today. When did you place the order?”

Caller: *vaguely* “A while back.”

Me: *head meets counter* “Does yesterday sound plausible?”

Caller: “No, it was longer than that. Gimme a sec.” *pauses, shuffling in the background* “It was last Friday.”

Me: “It is now Wednesday.” *thinking maybe a refund was issued but hasn’t yet shown up on the bank’s end* “Did you call earlier to let us know? Are you still waiting on a refund? Generally, refunds to a card take about—”

Caller: “No, this is my first call. I just didn’t like the food. My wife and kids did. But I didn’t.”

Me: “Um. Okay. Do you want a refund? I’ll have to check with my manager—”

Caller: “Nah, that’s fine. Just thought I should tell you. I didn’t like my food.”

Me: *speechless* “Okay. Thanks for letting us know.”

Caller: “You’re welcome.” *click*

(I work in a seafood place where we have a lot of older customers therefore we offer a senior menu. I am taking a rather large groups order and everything is running smooth until I get to the last gentleman.)

Man: “Someone told me y’all do that new spicy seasoning on the senior grilled fish?”

(I’m a bit thrown off by this as we only do the spicy seasoning on grilled fish if requested.)

Me: “We can do that but we usually just put original seasoning on it.”

Man: “Okay well I want that tilapia but I don’t want the spicy seasoning on it.”

(I put in his order and his wife’s order. His wife orders the senior Whitefish and I thought it was odd that he pointed to the senior menu and said Tilapia as we do not have tilapia on our senior menu so I asked him to make sure which dinner he wanted. He proceeds to get rude with me and I bite my tongue and proceed with this transaction. Note: his wife ordered her fish without seasoning and he did not. He received his food and was very angry when he saw his wife’s fish didn’t have seasoning but his did.)

Man: “I wanted mine without seasoning!”

Me: “Sir, you did not tell me that but I will certainly fix it.”

Man: “No! I don’t want to wait!”

Me: “Well there’s not much else I can do.”

Man: “Well if I get sick, it’s your fault.”

Me: “No because I offered to fix the mistake.”

Man: “I demand tof speak to a manager!”

(I go and get my manager who asked if he would like us to fix it or bring him out a completely new fish while he keeps the one he has and he says he does not want to wait so she also tells him there’s not much else we can do. He continues to tell us that it’s our fault his order was wrong and if he gets sick it’s our fault. My manager looks at me irritated.)

Manager: “He should either be more clear or not here at all.”

(I work overnight as maintenance for a well known big box store. Part of my duties is to go out after lunch and fetch carts in, this happened at around 3 AM one night.)

I just got outside and was waiting for the rest of my team when six customers came out.

Me: Have a nice day!*smiling*
Customers: Thanks…

They head to their car and get in while I start grabbing stray carts, the next thing I hear is:

Male Customer from the Group: WE’RE GOING TO HAVE GROUP SEX!!

I look across the lot at a coworker coming in from lunch and ask her if that really just happened, which she nodded in agreement to before we both laughed and went back to work.

(A customer sets a large amount of chains on the counter.)

Customer: “Do you think this is enough to hold down a body?”
