Unable To Protest(ant) That Point

, , , , , | | Related | July 9, 2019

(My 21-year-old sister and I are talking about religion, and I bring up an annoying coworker of mine. Note that although I am an atheist, we were raised Protestant and my sister still goes to church occasionally.)

Me: “[Coworker] thinks that the only reason I’m not Christian is that I had a bad pastor growing up. Our pastor was great; I just don’t believe in the religion. It’s so annoying.”

Sister: “You know we’re not Christian, right? We’re Protestant.”

(Cue long silence while I try to see if she’s messing with me…)

Me: “[Sister]… Protestant is Christian.”

Sister: “What? No, it’s not. Christian is Catholic.”

Me: “Christianity is a type of religion, and Catholic and Protestant are denominations. There’s also Baptist, Methodist, Orthodox… What did you think they were?”

Sister: “I… I don’t know.”

(The real kicker is that the word “Christian” is IN THE NAME OF OUR CHURCH.)

(My store gets a lot of foreigners coming through who don’t really speak or read English well so we have to kind of guess what it is they want. One day I was a cashier on an express register (10 items or less) and an Asian woman comes through and puts her 4 items on the belt. I scan them through)

Me: Alright, that’ll be $24.29

Woman: No, too expensive. Take it off.

Me: What would you like me to take off ma’am?

Woman: Pears say $0.99 each!

Me: No ma’am, I assure you that in the 2 years I’ve worked here that they have never been sold individually.

Woman: Fine, whatever. Take it off!

(I take off the pears)

Me: Alright that’ll be $22.28 now.

Woman: Better. (she rummages through her purse and pulls out a wad of cash. She proceeds to hand me a $100 bill. I just stood there staring at it before giving her her change.)

(I work at a grocery store chain that’s pretty big here. Our competitors went on strike so our business is crazier than normal. I am ringing out a customer who has a week’s worth of groceries. I finish ringing her out and I begin to bag her items. The customer behind her has a bottle of Soda.)

Customer Behind: Yo, hurry the f*** up! I’m very busy!

Me: I’m sorry sir, I’ll be right with you once I finish bagging her order.

Customer Behind: *Starts pacing back and forth like a caged animal* Listen I’ve got to get the f*** out of here. Hurry the f*** up!

Me: *turns to customer I’m helping* I apologize for this. He apparently doesn’t know how to wait in line.

(The customer leaves and I cash him out)

Me: That’ll be $1.75

Customer: The f***? That’s too expensive. Nah, you’re playin.

Me: I’m sorry sir that’s the price.

Customer: Man this is some bullsh**. *Storms off and out of the store after snatching the receipt from my hands*

(Customer comes through using WIC for his order)

Me: Sir, this entire order is incorrect. I can call over my supervisor and she can show you what you can buy.

Customer: No, I buy this stuff every week. You’re lying to me.

Me: I assure you that you do not buy this every week sir.

Customer: Whatever, get your supervisor over here.

(My supervisor comes over and takes him to get the correct items. She returns about 20 minutes later with a horrified look on her face.)

Supervisor: *Whispering to me* Get this guy out of here as quickly as possible. He’s so f***ing rude.

(I check him out quickly and send him on his way but not before he has one last comment.)

Customer: F*** this place! This place sucks! I’ll be shopping at [Out of business competitor] from now on!

I do food service at a local theme park. I had just got off of my break, and was walking back to the stand I was scheduled for that day. It’s July 4th, and had been raining slightly. A guest walks up to me with an umbrella opened. It’s 2:30 in the afternoon.
Customer: “Excuse me.”
Me: “Yes, how can I help you?”
Customer: “Where is the exit?”
We are literally standing in front of the main gate.
Me: “Umm, actually sir, it’s right here.”
Customer: “Oh, thank you. I rain is so bad, I just need to get out of it.”
