Unfiltered Story #109675

(So I’ve read many stories on here about customers not recognizing the male bits on their hamsters. I had never had that happen to me once in six years. Apparently I’d come due.)

Customer: *walks in moments after we enter, carrying a teddy bear hamster in a cage*

Me: “Good morning, welcome to Petco. How can I help you today?”

Customer: “I need help.”

Me: “I’d be happy to help. What can I do for you?”

Customer: “Is it normal for my daughter’s hamster to get these…bumps down on his back sometimes?”

Me: “Bumps?” *I look into the cage, as he explains*

Customer: “He’s my daughter’s hamster, and sometimes he gets those bumps. I want to know if he’s okay.”

Me: “Ah…well sir…those are his testicles.”

Customer: *shocked* “They are?!”

Me: “Yes sir. So he’s fine. Hamsters can pull their testicles into their body, which is why they’re not always visible.”

Customer: “Oh…so he’s okay?”

Me: “Yes sir. Is there anything else I can do for you?”

Customer: “No. Thank you for your help.” *he slinks off, embarrassed*

Toxic Parenting

(I’m the manager, and since our aquatics specialist isn’t working today, I’m putting away a shipment of fish when a customer comes over.)

Me: “Good afternoon. Can I help you find anything?”

Customer: “I need food for my goldfish.”

Me: “I’d be happy to help you. Were you looking for a particular brand?”

(We walk over to the food aisle.)

Customer: “Which one of these is non-toxic?”

(I stare, stunned.)

Customer: “In case my kids eat it, you know?”

Me: “I… well, I’d advise keeping it out of their reach, but all of the foods are non-toxic, ma’am, or we wouldn’t be able to feed them to the fish.”

Customer: “Oh, thank you!” *grabs a container of food and happily heads out of the department*
