Priceless Priced Less

| MO, USA | Uncategorized

(This lady has been in the store for at least an hour, building a large pile of merchandise.)

Customer: “Okay, I’m ready to check out. You can take off the sale prices.”

Me: “Um, I’m sorry?”

Customer: “You can take the discounts off. I won’t be needing them after all. The insurance will reimburse me, so it doesn’t matter how much I spend.”

Me: “Well, ma’am, I can’t exactly take off the sale prices. I would need to call my manager.”

Customer: “Don’t worry about it, I’ll just pay the sale prices. My shed burnt down, you know. I have to replace everything. Priceless items! My grandma gave me a popcorn maker for Christmas when I was a kid that was in there! I had custom-made curtains worth thousands of dollars in there! Heirloom dishes! So many things irreplaceable!”

Me: “Wow, that’s awful! So, if I might ask, why were these irreplaceable items in the shed, and not your house?

Customer: “Oh, it was all from some garage sale.”

No Customers, I Hate Customers

| IL, USA | Uncategorized

(I am working the front register when a gentleman comes up and puts his items on the counter.)

Customer: “No bag. I hate bags!”

Me: “No problem, sir. That will be $27.89.”

(The customer pays with cash.)

Me: “Your change is $0.11. Here’s your receipt.”

Customer: “Keep the receipt. I hate paper!”

You Need The Male Order Catalogue

| Des Moines, IA, USA | Uncategorized

(I work at a retail store as a tech person. We also work the sales floor. A lady walks in and and I go over to help her.)

Me: “Hi, can I help you look for anything?”

Customer: “I’m looking for a husband.”

Me: “What does he look like?”

Customer: “No, I’m looking for a husband!”

Seeing Oneself In Others

| Winnipeg, MB, Canada | Uncategorized

(A regular comes in and hangs out for a while. Clearly, he doesn’t really want to go back to work.)

Customer: “It’s boring there. I don’t want to go back.”

(He sees a mannequin dressed in camo.)

Customer: “Can I take him with me? He’d blend right in.” *chuckles*

Me: “Um…he’s a tad heavy and falls apart a lot.”

Customer: “Perfect. He’s just like me!”

When In Rome (Or Canada)…

| British Columbia, Canada | Canada, Tourists/Travel

(I work at a tourist shop where we get Americans on a regular basis.)

Me: “Would you like to pay by credit card?”

Customer: “Yes. Do you know where I can find a Bank of America?”

Me: “Um, I’m sorry, but there isn’t any around here.”

Customer: “So you guys don’t have Bank of America.”

Me: “No.”

Customer: “Are you sure?”

Me: “Yes, this is Canada.”
