We Love To See You Smile

| North Carolina, USA | Awesome Customers, Top

(I am having a terrible day at work, and haven’t smiled once. I have just finished ringing up an older couple’s order.)

Me: “Have a good day.”

Older Customer: “Do you have any paper?”

(I give the customer some receipt paper. He gets a pen, quickly scribbles something on the paper, and hands it to me.)

Older Customer: “Everyone deserves to smile.”

(The customer then walked away. I looked at it and he had drawn me a flower. I still have it. :) )

This Sale Has No Future

| Bensalem, PA, USA | Extra Stupid, Food & Drink, Time

(Note: It is a Sunday afternoon.)

Customer: “How much is a bag of mussels?”

Me: “They’re $2.99.”

Customer: “Are they on sale?”

Me: “Yes, they are.”

Customer: “How long are they going to be on sale?”

Me: “They’re on sale until Saturday.”

Customer: “So, do you mean next Saturday, or yesterday?”

Do As I Say, Not As I Don’t Say

| Edmonton, AB, Canada | At The Checkout

(I’m cashing when an elderly customer comes to the till.)

Me: “Hi, how are you?”

Customer: *mumbles*

Me: “Do you have a rewards card today?”

Customer: *waves his hand indicating no*

Me: “Did you find everything you were looking for?”

Customer: “Look, just stop asking questions. That’s what they do at [competitor], not here!”

(I’m a bit shocked, but I put his groceries through the till in silence.)

Me: “That’ll be [price].”

Customer: *says nothing while he uses his debit card*

Me: “Have a good night.”

Customer: “It would be better if you weren’t so rude. You need to try and interact more with customers!”

Me: *speechless*

And A Pound Of Pronunciation, Please

| USA | Food & Drink, Language & Words

(Note: we sell almost any kind of vegetables at our grocery store.)

Customer: *checks a list* “A pound of [incomprehensible], please.”

Me: “Could you repeat that, please?”

Customer: “A pound of [incomprehensible]!”

Me: “Sorry, sir, never heard of [incomprehensible].”

Customer: *angrily* “[Incomprehensible]! You call yourself a grocery?!”

Me: “Sorry, sir, we don’t have it!”

Customer: “I’ll never come back here again!” *leaves grumbling*

(An hour later, he returns.)

Customer: *apologetic smile* “Couldn’t read my handwriting. A pound of roast beef, please.”

You Attitude Is Just Peachy

| Adelaide, SA, Australia | Food & Drink, Top

Customer: “Excuse me. How much are your peaches?”

Me: “We don’t have peaches at the moment, ma’am, sorry.”

Customer: “Yes, you do.”

Me: “No, ma’am, we don’t. Do you mean the nectarines? They’re 5.99 a kilo.”

Customer: *snaps* “I know what nectarines look like, missy.”

Me: “All right. I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to insinuate that, but peaches aren’t in season right now. There are none around. Sorry.”

Customer: “Does your boss know you talk to people like this?”

Me: “Ma’am, I haven’t done anything wrong. Maybe if you show me what you’re talking about, then I can help you.”

Customer: “The peaches! I want to know how much the peaches are! It’s a simple question!”

Me: “Ma’am, there are no peaches in this store. Just…please show me what you’re talking about.”

Customer: “FINE.”

(The customer takes me to the store front and points at a display.)

Customer: “THESE!”

Me: “Those are mangoes.”
