Depositing A Little Fear

, , , , , , , | Right | March 6, 2019

(I work as a bank teller. As part of our training, we are told that if we are ever robbed we are to just hand over the money and not fight or argue with the robber. The branch that I trained at was robbed three months ago. I work in a grocery store bank, and it is the middle of a weekday. A customer walks up to my station. He’s a big guy and looks like he could be a football player.)

Me: “Hello. How are you?”

(The customer doesn’t say anything and does not change facial expression. I’m a little unnerved, as this is not usual, but I press on.)

Me: “How can I help you?”

(He just tosses a sealed envelope onto the counter. I feel myself fill with fear. This guy is robbing me with a note. I stare at the envelope, not wanting to open it. The customer isn’t saying anything, just staring at me. I suddenly get really, really angry. I look at my stapler and debate just throwing it at his face. I quickly toss that idea aside and open the envelope. Inside is a deposit. I complete the deposit and hand the customer the slip. The customer never says a word, just stares at me the whole time. I feel shaky so I go tell my manager about it.)

Me: “He just scared me the whole time. His facial expression never changed, and he never said a word.”

Manager: “What was his name?”

Me: “[Customer].”

Manager: “Oh, he’s deaf. That’s why he didn’t say anything. He’s a regular at the main branch, but sometimes he stops in here.”

(Boy, was I glad I didn’t throw my stapler at him!)

I Pale In Comparison

, , , | Right | March 4, 2019

(I’m a cashier. It’s the dead of winter so my skin is pretty pale.)

Customer: “You know, your make-up would look more natural if you didn’t use a foundation that was so light.”

Me: “I’m not wearing any make-up.”

Customer: “You’re lying. You’re just one of those goth girls or vampire fans.”

Me: *rolling up my sleeve so she can see that the rest of me is just as white* “Nope, I’m just super pale.”

Customer: “Oh, God, you’re not lying. That’s gross!”

(I didn’t really know how else to respond and honestly was kind of hurt so the rest of the transaction went by in mostly awkward silence. Also, I’m not an albino or anything so I don’t know why the customer thought this wasn’t my natural skin color.)

Unfiltered Story #142113

, , , | Unfiltered | February 27, 2019

I was in the line at the post office.  I was in front of the line and there were 6 people behind me.  Woman #1 is at the other counter filling out change of address forms. Woman #2 who isn’t even with Woman #1 starts talking to her.

Woman #2:  You know if you change your address online they charge you.

Woman #1: I know .

Woman #2:  They shouldn’t do that since you can fill out the papers at the post office for free.

I then put in my 2 cents about it.

Me:  You know it is only a $1.

Woman #2: (She yells this) Well they shouldn’t charge anything. 
She then slams her fists on the counter and storms off.

Me and others in line are trying to hold back laughter.  She was really that upset over a $1 and actually nothing that pertained to her anyways.  I still have no clue if she had business at the post office or what.

Acting Like A Complete Cornhole

, , , , | Right | February 24, 2019

(I work in a farm store. I answer the phone.)

Me: “[Farm Store]. This is [My Name]; how may I help you?”

Customer: “So, I’m camping right now…”

Me: “Yes?”

Customer: “The people camping next to us are playing this game that looks really, really stupid.”

Me: *biting my lip to suppress a smile* “All right.”

Customer: “I think it’s called cornhole? The one with the beanbag? It looks sooooooo dumb. Do you sell it?”

Me: “Ah, no, sorry. We do not carry that. You might want to try [Other Store].”

Customer: “Okay, well, thanks. That’s all right; it looks super stupid, anyway.”

Me: *to myself* “I think I just met a closeted cornhole fan.”

It’s Like That Display Just Pop-ped Into Existence

, , | Right | February 19, 2019

(I’m checking out customers when a guy comes up to me, looking furious.)

Me: “Hi, how are you doing today? Find everything?”

Customer: “No. I need a f****** rain-check!”

Me: *taken aback* “Okay… For what product?”

Customer: “I want ten of the two-liter pops for $1 each!”

Me: “The two-liter [Soda]s?”

Customer: “Yeah! You gonna write it down or just stand around?!”

Me: *stares past him, at a massive display of two-liter pops, with the sign that says: “[Soda]: 10/$1”*

Customer: “The f*** you looking at?”

Me: *doesn’t answer, just points*

Customer: *looks where I’m looking* “HOW WAS I SUPPOSED TO SEE THAT?!”

Me: “It’s visible as soon as you walk in, sir.”

Customer: “F*** YOU!” *storms out*
