Should Have Cashed Out Early

| Indianapolis, IN, USA | Right | April 20, 2016

(I’m a customer in line for an ice cream fundraiser. There are three teenage girls in front of me and one cashier. Ice cream is $3.)

Girl: *to friend* “Hey, do you have change for a five?”

Cashier: “You need change?”

Girl: “Yeah, do you have five ones for a five?”

Cashier: “You’re buying ice cream…?”

Girl: “Yeah, but I need five ones for a five.”

Cashier: “I can just… You want me to keep three of them?”

Girl: “No! I want five ones for a five.”

Cashier: “Okay… here you go.”

Girl: “Thanks. Ice cream is $3?”

(The girl takes three of the ones the cashier just gave her and hands them back to the cashier.)

The King Of Rocky-Road

| USA | Friendly | April 11, 2016

(Two little girls who look to be about 7 and 9 years old come into our ice cream shop. The older one notices that one of our ice cream’s titles has the name Elvis in it.)

Little Girl #1: “Do you know who Elvis is?”

Little Girl #2: “No.”

Little Girl #1: *sadly* “He’s dead.”

The Only Weight I Want To Lose Is The One Behind Me

| MI, USA | Right | March 31, 2016

(I am a customer in this story. I also am only 14, and look really young. I’m in line by myself.)

Me: *to cashier* “Hi! Can I have a kid soft serve and a small chili cheese fry?”

Woman Behind Me: “NO!”

Me: “…”

Cashier: “Well, what do you want?”

Me: “…I want a kids soft serve and a small chili cheese fry.”

Woman Behind Me: “I told you, no!” *to cashier* “Make that a large ice cream, and a double chili cheese fry. Also, get her a large sundae.”

Me: “But… I don’t want that!”

Woman: “Just get it.”

(The cashier leaves to make the food, while I’m in shock.)

Woman Behind Me: “So, how old are you? 10?”

Me: “I’m 14…”

Woman: “Pshh. Already counting calories? Trying to lose weight?”

Me: “…”

(The cashier comes out, holding the sundae, large ice cream, and a double order of fries.)

Me: “I can’t pay for this…”

Woman: “Kids these days, making adults pay for everything they want. Wait here. I’ll get more money.” *she walks away*

Me: “Can I have my food now?”

Cashier: “What do you mean?”

Me: “My food, not what that lady ordered.”

Cashier: “Listen, your mom knows what you should eat. Listen to her.”

Me: “I have never met that lady before.”

Cashier: *awkward pause* “I’ll change your order…”

Our Own Dear Leader

| PA, USA | Working | March 25, 2016

(We’ve been having trouble hearing customers on the phone, so my boss decides to call from his cell phone.)

Coworker: “Thanks for calling [Shop]. How can I help you?”

Boss: “This is your fearless leader speaking. Can you hear me?”

Coworker: *barely containing laughter* “I can hear you!”

Lights Off But Somebody’s Home

| USA | Working | March 24, 2016

(After an evening checking out the local art galleries and music downtown, my dad, sister, and I decide to check out a new ice cream shop. When we get there, despite signs on the door saying they’re open for another hour, there’s not a single person in sight.)

Dad: “Hello, anybody in here?”

Sister: “Maybe they forgot to turn the lights off and lock the door?”

Me: “No, right here it says they’re open tonight until nine; it’s just past eight.”


Sister: “This… is just a little too creepy.”

Dad: “Yeah, all right.”

(Right after we left, a man wandered out of the kitchen and started mopping the floors. Last I heard, all their locations had closed down. I wonder why…)
