Christmas Cheer Versus Christmas Jeer

| SA, Australia | Holidays, Theme Of The Month

(Close to Christmas, I decide to cheer up my uniform by wearing a pair of glitter Christmas trees on a headband.)

Me: “Good morning! Can I help you?”

Customer: “Why do you wear those stupid things?”

Me: “Excuse me?”

Customer: “Those stupid things on your head. Absolutely ridiculous, and you look like an idiot.”

Me: *smiling and looking directly in her eyes* “Well, Christmas for me is actually a sad time. I lost my mum at Christmas, my uncle died shortly after, I have just lost my father-in-law to cancer, and my grown children live over 2000 kilometres away and cannot make it home. So, I try and make the holidays just that little bit happier by adding a bit of silliness. If I can make someone smile it’s worth it.”

Customer: “I’ll just take my foot out of my mouth now and leave.”

(I never did find out what she came in for but she left very humbled!)

Some People Have Extra Large Baggage At Christmas

| Marquette, MI, USA | Holidays, Theme Of The Month

(A mother is buying a BB gun for her son for Christmas.)

Customer: “Do you have a really large bag that will cover this whole box?”

Me: “No. These are the largest bags I have, but I could put one on each end and only a little would be showing.”

Customer: “THANKS a lot! You are ruining my son’s Christmas! It’s ruined now! He is in the car and you can’t even get me a large bag!”

Me: “Ma’am, I’m sorry. These are the only bags the stores orders. I can try to cover it the best I can. But maybe next time don’t shop with your son in the car.”

Customer: “You ruined his Christmas, I hope you can live with that!”

(She then walked away with no bag… and guess what, I’m still living.)
