Saving For Savings

| Charlotte, NC, USA | Uncategorized

(A customer approaches me as I am trying leave the store after my shift.)

Customer: “Excuse me, my son has saved over one thousand, two hundred dollars at this store. What does he get?”

Me: “I’m sorry?”

Customer: “Don’t you have some kind of rewards program for someone who’s saved that much?”

Me: “In the past, we’ve done some giveaways, but at the moment, I’m afraid we’re not running any long-term programs like that.”

Customer: *annoyed* “So he’s saved over twelve hundred dollars here and he doesn’t get anything?”

Me: “Well, there’s that twelve hundred dollars…”

(There’s a silence as she just stares at me.)

Customer: “You should really take better care of your customers.” *walks away*

Boss: “Hey, I need to talk to you for a second.”

Me: “Is there a problem?”

Boss: “I received a complaint about you from a customer. By our rules we have to pull you aside and tell you.”

Me: “Okay, what’s the complaint?”

Boss: “Um, you were too nice.”

Me: “Come again?”

Boss: “Apparently, you were trying too hard to be nice and doing your job bagging for her. She got offended by it, so….be more careful, I guess.”

Me: “Wait, I’m in trouble because I was being too nice?”

Boss: “Yeah.”

Me: “This is a new one.”

(I’m working in the deli department of the supermarket. A customer approaches me with a container of our fruit salad.)

Customer: “Hi, I have a question.”

Customer: “Did you make the fruit salad?”

Me: “Yes, I did. We make our fruit salads fresh every morning.”

Customer: “Did you make it with plenty of love?”

The Recoil Is Amazing

(I’m stocking cans of soup at the end of an aisle when I hear a voice say “Beep Beep!” I just ignore it but it continues to get louder. I turn around to see an elderly male customer with a shopping cart.)

Customer: “Beep, beep!”

Me: “Oh! Hi there. Did you need help finding anything today, sir?”

Customer: “Beep, beep!”

(He then proceeds to ram his cart into my butt multiple times.)

Me: “Oh my, I’m sorry. I didn’t realize I was in your way. I’ll move.”

Customer: “Oh, it’s okay sweetie. I do that to all the pretty girls.”

Me: “Okay, well, I’ll let you go now.”

Customer: “Wanna share a can of soup, sweet cheeks?”

Me: *running away* “No, thank you!”
