Get It Right Next Dime

, , , , , , | Right | July 10, 2018

(My friends and I go to a mall to celebrate my birthday. I decide to buy a lotion.)

Clerk: “Your total is $5.36.”

Me: *gives a five-dollar bill* “Here is a five, and I’ll get out some coins.” *gives a quarter* “Here you go.”

(The clerk just stares at me.)

Clerk: “Its $5.36, not $5.25.”

Me: *gives a dime* “Whoops! Sorry.”

(The clerk continues to stare at me more intensely.)

Me: “Oh! I need to give you a penny. I can’t math; it’s a Friday.”

The Merc With The Mouth Versus The Customer With Opinions

, , , , , | Right | July 9, 2018

(I work in a movie theater. I’m a manager helping on concessions one morning when a man in his 20s or 30s comes in.)

Customer: “What time is Star Wars playing?”

(I give him the times and he starts to leave, then he suddenly comes back up.)

Customer: “I have one more question.”

Me: “Sure, what can I help you with?”

Customer: “Why is Deadpool so violent? It’s so violent, too much!”

(I laugh, thinking he is joking. He stares at me, waiting for an answer.)

Me: “Sir, I didn’t make the movie, I have no control over how much violence they put in it.”

Customer: “So, why is it so violent?”

Me: “I didn’t make the movie… Deadpool is a very over-the-top movie. I personally loved it!”

(The customer glared at me and stormed out the door.)

Telling The Time Has Clocked Out

, , , , | Right | July 9, 2018

(I’m working at a restaurant. The phone rings with a customer who wants to place a to-go order. At the end of conversations like this, we always read back the order, and tell them the total and how long it will take to be ready. This call takes place at 5:50 pm.)

Me: “All right, ma’am, your total is [total], and it’ll be ready in about 25 minutes.”

Customer: “No! I need it to be ready at quarter after six.”

(She gets really upset, and is adamant that the order be ready at quarter after six, not realizing that that’s exactly 25 minutes from now.)

Me: “Okay, thanks. Bye.”

(I hung up.)

I work at a grocery store as a cashier. My hair is long enough to be recognized as a woman but some people are mistaken at times. One day i was at work when a man walks up and stares at me.

Me: Hi, may I help you?

Man: It’s a woman ma!

I am bit confused and ask him what does he mean.

Man looks at woman putting her groceries on the belt. Man: You said this was a man ma, but it’s a woman.

Woman looks up at me: Sorry I thought you were boy. Guess I wasn’t paying attention.

Yeah no kidding.

(I am checking out at a store. My nine-month-old daughter is in the cart, and like with most children this age, it can be difficult to tell her gender.)

Clerk: “Oh, what a good… girl?”

Me: “Yes, it can be hard to tell at this age, and she is wearing a boyish tee-shirt.”

Clerk: “Pink Floyd! Oh, I just love Stairway to Heaven!

Me: “… “
