More Than You Bargained For, Part 5

| IN, USA | At The Checkout, Liars & Scammers, Money

Customer: “Just this DVD please.”

Me: “Okay, that will be $5.35.”

Customer: “No, I found this in the $3 DVD bin; it’s $3!”

(There are two DVD bins, one for $5 DVDs, and one for $3 ones. All DVDs have a sticker clearly showing their price.)

Me: “Well, sir, it could have been placed their by another customer, but it is still $5.”

Customer: “That is bull-s***! I don’t care what another customer did! I found it in the $3 bin, and I want it for $3!”

Me: “Sir, if you found a $3 DVD in that $5 bin, would you pay $5 for it?”

Customer: “F*** no! That’s stupid! Why would you—” *light bulb goes on* “—well, this is still bull-s***!”

Jeepers Creepers

| Retail | Oklahoma City, OK, USA | At The Checkout, Bizarre, Health & Body

(A customer approaches my register. I begin her transaction, as well as make small talk.)

Customer: “Can I ask you a question?”

Me: “Absolutely!”

Customer: “Do you have prosthetic eyes? My husband makes them and, yours just look so real!”

Me: “No, ma’am. My eyes are real.”

Customer: “Are you sure?”

Me: “Yep, my eyes are really real.”

(She turns deep red, but tries to laugh it off. We finish her transaction, and she leaves very quickly.)

Silent Running

| Hampshire, England, UK | At The Checkout, Bad Behavior, Bizarre

(A regular comes in every day for cigarettes. I am always a polite and friendly cashier, who asks how the customers are.)

Me: “Hello, sir! How are you today?”

Customer: “How are you today? How am I today? How am I today? Every day you ask this, and you really don’t care how I am, so in future don’t ask; just give me my cigarettes!”

Me: “Oh, err… okay…”

Customer: “That’s better. You remember that now!”

Me: “I will…”

(From that day on, every day when he comes and buys his cigarettes, everything is done in total silence.)
