BOGO: Buy One Give One

| Atlanta, GA, USA | Awesome Customers, Top

(I’ve been helping a customer who’s about to get a great deal because of a BOGO promotion in the store. She also has a coupon for a free item. Even I am impressed with the amount of products she’ll get for free. I’ve been helping her select lotions and fragrances on the floor.)

Customer: “Well, I have so much already. I don’t know what to pick out next. What would you recommend? What’s your favorite fragrance?”

(I show her my favorite fragrance and she adds a lotion to her bag before she heads to the register to check out. She comes back to me after she makes her purchases.)

Customer: “Thanks so much for your help today!”

(Surprisingly, she hands me a bag from our store with an item in it. Inside is my favorite lotion; she had used her coupon to treat me!)

Customer: “Do you have any synonym?”

Me: “I’m sorry?”

Customer: “SYNONYM!”

Me: “Do you mean cinnamon?”

Customer: “No! God! They should have an I.Q. test before hiring people!” *storms away*

A Cheerful Earful

| Portland, OR, USA | At The Checkout

(I have been helping a customer sort out an order and have escorted her to the cashier. I hand her over with a smile and the cashier greets her with a smile.)

Customer: “Everyone here is so cheerful! You are all so very cheerful!”

Me: “Yes, well, we enjoy nice customers like you!”

Customer: “God almighty, what do they feed you?! CHEERFUL Kool-Aid?!”

(The cashier and I continue to smile while the customer pays. As she leaves…)

Customer: “So cheerful…so cheerful…SO CHEERFUL!”

One Does Not Simply Quaff Into Mordor

| Wichita, KS, USA | Food & Drink

(In the liquor store I work in, I notice an older man wondering around the store looking very confused. I ask if I can help him find anything.)

Customer: “Do you have Rivendell?”

Me:Rivendell?”

Customer: “Yes, I’m looking for Rivendell.”

Me: “Um, I don’t know if we have that here. Are you sure what you’re looking for is called ‘Rivendell?'”

Customer: “Yes, Rivendell.”

Me: *hesitantly* “Sir, I believe Rivendell is a city from The Lord Of The Rings.”

Customer: “Oh.”

(We pause and stare at each other for a moment. He pulls his phone out to call the person who sent him to the store. What was he looking for? Zinfandel.)

Me: *smiling* “That’s good.”

Customer: “You have a nice smile.”

Me: “Thanks!”

Customer: “You must be very happy.”

Me: “Usually.”

Customer: “I have a friend who is a stripper. You’re much happier than her.”
