Forget You, And Forget Me Too

(I work at a gym and recreational facility that requires a membership.)

Customer: “Hi, I have a question about my membership payment.”

Me: “Okay, are you on the annual or quarterly payment system.”

Customer: “I don’t know.”

Me: “On the bills you get from us, is it for $350 or $1400?”

Customer: “I don’t know.”

Me: “Okay, if you can give me your name and phone number, I can make sure our billing person looks up your payment and then contacts you.”

Customer: “I don’t know my phone number…”

(It is 3 weeks before Halloween. A customer walks into the gym and points at some of our decorations we’ve .)

Member: *rudely* “What is all this for?”

Me: “They’re our Halloween decorations.”

Member: “Oh, okay. Because I was going to say, it’s a little early for Christmas decorations.”

(The Christmas decorations he was referring to? Cobwebs and jack-o-lantern lights.)

(I am a receptionist at a local gym. We use radio instead of CDs–normally hip-hop/pop music radio channels. An elderly gentleman, probably in his 80s, walks up to the reception with a kind smile. He is the only member working out at this early hour.)

Customer: “Young man, do you mind changing the radio channel?”

Me: “No, of course not. What kind of music would you like to listen to?”

Customer: “Well, I don’t really care. I’m just tired of being told to f*** my deceased mother.”
