(I have been helping a 50-60-year-old woman find a specific type of pen.)

Customer: “You know why I came to this [store]? I came here because of your energy. I am your guardian angel.”

Me: “Oh…um, okay.”

Customer: “I sense great things from you. You are a fifth-level warrior goddess.”

Me: “Thank you?”

Customer: “I’m serious! You are Cleopatra reincarnate. Prince Albert reincarnate. Queen Elizabeth, the good one. You have an amazing energy!”

Me: “That’s pretty awesome.”

Customer: “You are a warrior goddess! Since I am your guardian, I can give you guidance, is there anything you want to know?

Me: “I’m really okay.”

(She then takes her Native American style beaded necklace and puts it on my forehead.)

Customer: “You are now blessed!”

Me: “Thank you. Do you need anything else?”

Customer: “Where are the padlocks?”

| Right | July 21, 2011

(I approach a confused looking woman standing in the ink cartridge aisle.)

Me: “How are you today, ma’am? Can I help you find the correct ink?”

Customer: “Yeah, thank you.”

Me: “Do you know which cartridge or what model printer you have?”

Customer: “No, but it’s one of these.”

(There are literally hundreds of ink cartridges in this aisle.)

(I notice a very well-dressed woman checking out laptops.)

Me: “Can I help you with anything, ma’am?”

Customer: “Yes, please. Could you tell me about the facial password feature on these laptops?”

Me: “Sure. Certain laptops we carry can use the webcam to recognize several facial features unique to each person. Eye distance, mouth width, things like that.”

Customer: “Well then, that’s it.”

Me: “Ma’am?”

Customer: “The apocalypse is coming.”

Me: “The apocalypse?”

Customer: “Yes. See, the Bible says that when the government starts taking over our personal lives, the apocalypse will come.”

Me: “Ma’am, this has nothing to do with the government. It’s just another security feature.”

(She pats me on the shoulder.)

Customer: “That’s okay, son. I speak to God every day. I’m glad to know that when I’m up in heaven, you’ll be down here burning in Hell.”

(I’m a cashier, and a customer comes up to my register with a lock.)

Customer: “Do you guys do price matching?”

Me: “Yes, we do!”

Customer: “Great. I’ll take it at the [Medical Supply Store] price.”

Me: “All right, I’ll just need the print out.”

Customer: “The what?”

Me: “Well, I need proof that the other store has the same product for a lesser amount.”

Customer: “Don’t you know what they sell it at?”

Me: “Actually, I don’t believe they sell this at all.”

Customer: “Well, just find a store that sells it at a lesser price and give me that!”

Me: “Sir, I can’t do that. Unless you found the same item for a lesser price at another store, I have to charge you what our company sells it at.”

Customer: “Why?”

Me: “Because that’s business, sir.”

Me: *joking* “Well, we’re out of black and white ink. How about black and clear?”

Customer: “No! I really need the white ink!”
