Barcode Overload

| Bonita Springs, FL, USA | Uncategorized

(A customer is in my line with a large box. I lean over and hold my hand scanner upside-down to reach it.)

Customer: “Wow! You can scan barcodes upside down now? Technology these days!”

Humor Isn’t Just Skin Deep

| Stockport, UK | Uncategorized

Me:” Hi, how are you? Is there anything I can help you with today?”

Customer: “Hi, I’m looking for a protective foreskin for my phone.”

(There is a slight pause and we both burst out laughing.)

Me: “I think I know what you mean. They’re just over here.”

Well, It Sure Beats Atkins

| Atlanta, GA, USA | Uncategorized

(A customer emails in a query regarding one of our products.)

Customer: “If it were a matter of life or death, could I eat this product? If so, what would happen? The label says ‘safe & non-toxic’, yet it also says ‘do not eat’. This seems contradictory. Please clarify ASAP. I’m starving.”

Me: “You would have to contact the manufacturer of the item. I recommend that you should not eat anything that says ‘safe & non-toxic’ because this could be referring to biodegradable elements of this product, and should not be used for dietary nutrition. I hope you find something else to eat.”

Me: “Would you like everything just back in the box, ma’am?”

Customer: “I don’t think they’ll fit!”
