I am a cashier. A customer comes to my line wanting to price match 15 of the same item. Our store has a policy that we will match the prices of local competitors to a limit of 5 items per family. A couple walks to my cash wanting to price match toilet paper.

Me: There is a limit of 6 items per family if you price match

Male Customer : Shes not my family. She is my sister.

Me: First off, your sister is still family. Second of all, why did you marry your sister?

Customer: Shi*. Ill just price match 6 of them then.

(the couple price match 6 of them. I still tell this story to all of my co workers to this day and its still funny)

I work at the largest retail store in the world, at a location in Toronto. We have a policy that we will price match any product that our competitors are selling for a lower price as long as it is on the correct flyer date, and the item is the exact flavor, size, etc. A customer comes to my checkout lane demanding that I price match all the items in her cart, and there are about 50 items total. As you have to price override every single item, it takes a long time punching in all of the price override codes and checking the flyer dates and item sizes. The store where they price match also must be within a 30kilometer radius of our store.

Me: How is your day today, ma’am

Customer: Good. I want to price match all of these items in my cart. Here is the flyers.
(She proceeds to pull the flyers on her phone. half of they flyers are invalid, as they are expired, and many of them are from stores in different provinces and even from the U.S., and some of them are in French, which I cant even read. I proceed to tell her which flyers are valid and what arent. I override the valid ones, but i tell her what i cannot price match. By now, there is a long line forming)

Customer in line: Hurry Up!!!!!!!!

Customer: Your taking too long!!!!!

Me to the customer in line: Sorry about the inconvenience, but it will be a long time. (I am only half done with all her price matching. I proceed to keep looking at her flyers and price overriding. By now, i am annoyed, and its the customers fault shes price matching so many items,yet shes complaining im taking too long. Now, i am done. She has only like 10 items she was able to price match the right way. )

Me: Your total is $16.10

Customer: AMEX please. you took a long time. I want a manager to complain to.

(I call a customer service manager(CSM), who proceeds to back me up as I explain everything to her)

CSM: Ma’am, you price matched so many items. You should expect to be in line for a long time if you price match.

(she pays for her items, without saying a word, and leaves.)

Coworker at the till behind me: She was a bitc*

Me: I know, right!!!!

Customer in line: I was yelling at the customer in line who was price matching to hurry up. I guess some people dont realize cashiers are live human beings too

Me: Well, hopefully she goes to self checkout next time

(I proceed with her transaction, and the rest of the day runs smoothly)

(there is a moment of sience before the CSM leaves)

(I work as a cashier at a sporting goods store in town. We get a lot of kids buying supplies for school athletics. One Teenager comes in with his Mom to return some cleats because the Teenager wanted metal cleats but had plastic ones. I call up a Manager to process the transaction. The Mom explains to my Manager that they want metal cleats.)
Manager: (to Teenager) Are you planning on playing city league, or just for school?
Teenager: Probably both
Manager: All right, well unless they changed something from last year, you won’t be able to use metal cleats for city league. They only allow the plastic ones for safety reasons.
Teenager: (in a condescending tone, after a solid 5 seconds of staring blankly at my manager) I ONLY wear metal cleats.
Manager: Ooookay, just thought I’d warn you. Let’s go ahead and do that return.
(We processed the return, with the mother badgering her son about not being able to wear metal cleats the whole way through. Finally, the leave.)
Manager & Me: (matching Teenager’s condescending tone, in unison): But I ONLY wear metal cleats.

I work at a clothing outlet in a very, very large outlet mall. We’re so large that we get about as many visitors as Disneyland per year. I’m also part time and only work 2-3 days per week at most. A customer comes up to my register and as I begin ringing him up, he asks me where a particular store is in our mall. I reply, “I’m not sure, but you can always check the mall directory located right outside our store.” He looks surpised and says, “You come to work everyday at this mall you and don’t know where anything is?”
Yes because every mall employee knows everything about the mall and has the answers to everything!

It’s the height of panic buying and Australia apparently runs on toilet paper. We haven’t subscribed to the panic, but we do run out of toilet paper, so I go to look for some. I go into a supermarket and find the toilet paper aisle COMPLETELY empty, but a worker is stocking the shelves. I stand back a moment to make sure there’s nothing and realise the worker is stocking paper towels. An old man is in the aisle.

Old Man: “Do you have toilet paper?”

Worker: “Nah just what’s there.”

Old Man: “What about unscented home brand toilet paper?”

Worker: “Nah man, just what’s out.”

Old Man: “Do you have any unscented tissues?”

Worker: “Just what’s there.”

Old Man: “Do you have any home brand unscented tissues?”

Worker: “We’ve only got what is on the shelves.”

Old Man: “You sure you don’t have anything out back?”

Worker: “Nah man, this is all we have for the day.”

Old Man: “What about a small pack of homebred unscented tissues?”

Worker: “We only have what you can see.”

As I left the aisle I could hear the man getting frustrated asking more questions.
