Honesty Not Included

| UK | At The Checkout, Liars & Scammers, Popular

(I am the customer in this story. I am posting a present to a relative in Finland.)

Post Office: “What is in the parcel?”

Me: “Children’s toy.”

Post Office: “Does it contain batteries?”

Me: “No…”

Post Office: “Okay, then that’s fine. Please pass it through the window.”

Parcel: *starts singing jaunty nursery rhyme as I accidentally hit a button whilst passing it to her*

Post Office & Me: *avoid eye contact and pretend we heard nothing*

Small Parcel, Big Reaction

| Cornwall, England, UK | Awesome Customers, Popular

(I am sending a parcel at the local post office and take it up to the counter to be weighed and measured. It is slightly too long to be considered a small parcel although it is fine weight and width-wise.)

Me: “I’d like to send this parcel first class.”

Cashier: “I’m very sorry but it is too large to count as a small parcel.”

Me: “Not a problem. I should have folded it smaller.”

Cashier: “You’d have probably not fitted the width restrictions then.”

Me: “Oh, yes, typical!” *said with a smile and a laugh* “Just tell me how much it is and I’ll pay.”

Cashier: “Oh, really? It’s [amount].”

Me: “I’m guessing most people don’t have the same reaction?”

Cashier: “You wouldn’t believe…”

Obama Drama, Part 2

| USA | Extra Stupid, Politics

(It’s the day before taxes are due and a few last minute customers are mailing out their returns. Customer #1 is addressing his envelope while Customer #2 is filling out a money order for a payment.)

Customer #1: “I really got hit this year!”

Customer #2: *murmurs sympathetically*

Customer #1: “But I guess I’m just stuck paying like this until we get a Republican governor again.”

Customer #2: *glances at him* “Yeah…?”

(There’s a slight pause as Customer #1 thinks.)

Customer #1: “We’ve got a Republican governor right now, don’t we?”

Customer #2: “Yup!”

(The Republican governor had already been in office three years; he was preceded by another Republican.)
