All Treat, No Trick, Part 2

, , , , , , | Right | October 31, 2020

I am working at the front checkout on Halloween night. A young woman and her young daughter come into the store. The daughter is dressed up as a princess and is obviously in the middle of trick-or-treating.

Mother: “Go ahead!”

Girl: “Trick or treat!”

Me: “I’m sorry, sweetie, but we don’t have any free candy here.”

Girl: *Obviously disappointed* “Oh…”

Man In Line: “You know what, I’ve got it.”

The man in line grabs a full-sized Snickers bar and hands it to me to scan.

Man In Line: “That’s for the princess.”

Girl & Mother: “Thank you!”

Me: “That was really very generous! Thank you so much!”

Man In Line: “It’s a better use of my money than this issue of Concealed Handguns I’m buying!”

An A-Mall-ing Lack Of Knowledge

, , , | Right | October 24, 2020

I work at a movie theater that’s part of a mall but has no real affiliation with the mall. One day, the phone rings and I answer. I go through my movie theater answer script.

Me: “How can I help you?”

Caller: “What stores are in the mall?”

Me: “I’m sorry, sir. What?”

Caller: “You’re in the mall, right? I tried calling the mall office, but no one answered and I know you’re in the mall, so tell me what stores are there.”

Me: “I’m sorry, sir. I don’t honestly know the names of all the stores here.”

Caller: “Really? But you’re in the mall. Don’t you know everyone there? Shouldn’t you know what stores are there?”

Me: “Well, we are located in the mall, but we’re sort of a separate thing. We’re kind of not part of the mall, actually.”

Caller: “Fine, whatever. Well, what are the mall’s hours?”

Me: “I’m sorry, I really don’t know that, either.”

Caller: “Can you go ask someone, or look somewhere and tell me if there’s a [Store] there?”

Me: “I’m very sorry, but I can’t actually leave during my shift.” 

Caller: “You’re stupid. No wonder you work at a movie theater.” *Click*

Thinking Too Highly Of Those Eye Drops

, , , , | Right | September 14, 2020

I am a cashier at a large chain pharmacy. A customer comes up to my register with a bag of chips, a Mountain Dew, and a box of eye drops, specifically eye-whitening eye drops. He is very clearly stoned.

Me: “Did you find everything okay?”

Customer: “Yeeaaaahhhh…”

I finish the transaction and then turn to a coworker.

Me: “I don’t know who he thinks he’s fooling, buying those eye drops.”

Coworker: “Yeah, his eyes aren’t the only giveaway!”

When The Problem Solves Itself

, , , | Right | September 8, 2020

I help provide technical support for several products. One of these is a pain because parts of it are handled by a different company. I get a call from someone saying that he is seeing a message to call us.

Me: “Well, what does the message say?”

Customer: “It says, ‘Need Assistance? Contact the Digital Support Staff.’ I don’t need assistance, do I?”

Me: *Pause* “If you don’t need assistance, you don’t need to call. That’s just there so you know where to call if you need help.”

Customer: “Oh. Well, I don’t need help. Bye.” *Hangs up*

My coworker looks at me, a little alarmed.

Coworker: “What was that about?”

Me: “He didn’t need any help!”

I’m talking on the phone with my mom, who is overprotective.

Mom: “What’s your son doing?”

Me: “He’s outside.”

Mom: “Aren’t you afraid someone will take him?”

Me: “He’s fifteen, Ma.”
