| Broomfield, CO, USA | At The Checkout, Money, Uncategorized

(A customer is paying her credit card bill.)

Me: “Would you like to pay with cash, check, or debit card?”

Customer: “I can pay with a debit card?”

Me: “You sure can.”

(The customer slides her card.)

Customer: “I don’t remember my pin. I’ll just try one.”

(The customer’s card is declined.)

Me: “Do you want to try again?”

Customer: “No, my mom will use her card.”

(The customer’s mother tries, but she doesn’t remember her PIN either.)

Me: “You can pay with cash or a check.”

(The customer pulls a folded check from her pocket and hands it to me. I open it to see that it’s blank.)

Me: “Um…”

Customer: “Oh, am I supposed to fill that out?”

(During the Christmas rush, a customer comes into my line talking on her cell phone.)

Me: “Hello. Would you like a protection plan with this?”

(Customer ignores me.)

Me: “Do you have a rewards card with us, ma’am?”

(Customer continues to ignore me.)

Me: “Okay, here’s your receipt. Have a nice day!”

(Customer stops talking on her phone and looks at me.)

Customer: “What about my rewards card?”

Me: “Well, I asked you if you had one, but you were too busy talking.”

Customer: “So you’re saying it’s my fault?”

Me: “Yes.”

Me: “Your table is not quite ready yet. Let me give you this pager it will go off as soon as the table is set.”

Customer: “Ok, thank you. What’s the range on this pager?”

Me: “Just on this side of the courtyard.”

Customer: “Alright, and if I lick it, will it electrocute me?”

Me: *pause* “Please…just…don’t.”

| Toronto, Canada | Bizarre, Uncategorized

Customer: “I need help finding a soap with vanilla in it.”

(I help her and show her a few products. She picks up a bar of soap.)

Customer: “How do you use this one?”

Me: “Oh, it’s just like a normal bar of soap.”

Customer: “What?”

Me: “You know, like a normal soap bar? Um, like Dove or Irish Spring?”

Customer: *blank stare*

Me: “You take it into the shower with you, wet it, rub it all over, and rinse it off.”

Customer: “Oh. That sounds like too much work.” *puts soap down and walks away*
