In Need Of Humble Pi

| St. Louis, MO, USA | Top

Me: “Would you like to donate to [charity] today?”

Customer: “Okay. Round my total up to $30.”

(I pull out a calculator to figure out how much it is to round up to $30. Customer’s total is $25.78.)

Customer: “It’s sad that you need a calculator to figure that out. It’s $7.32.”

Me: “Actually, ma’am, it’s $4.22.”

Customer: “Oh.”

Not About To Start A Revolution

| Barrie, ON, Canada | Uncategorized

(A young female customer is paying for a work order. Her friends are nearby.)

Me: “The tech also recommends a tire rotation.”

Customer: “Oh okay…is that something I could get a friend to do?”

Me: “If they’ve got a jack and the lug nut key, sure.”

(Her friends come over.)

Customer: *to another young female friend* “I have to rotate my tires.”

Customer’s friend: “I thought they did that when you drive?”

Customer: “I’d like to return this box of cereal. It tastes like it spoiled when I ate it. Here’s my receipt.”

Me: “Ma’am, I’m sorry. We can’t take it back. You only have 90 days to return this item, and you bought it over 5 months ago.”

Customer: “This is outrageous! I could have gotten sick from this!”

Me: *looks in box* “Ma’am, this is an empty box of cereal. Where’s the cereal?”

Customer: “I told you. I ate it!”

| Plainville, CT, USA | Uncategorized

(I am a cashier finishing up with a customer. I gesture for him to sign the electronic pad when paying by card.)

Me: “Okay, please go ahead and sign the pad.”

(Customer takes out an ink pen and proceeds to get ink all over the electronic pad.)

Me: “Sir, I’m afraid that won’t work. You need to use the electronic pen.”

Customer: *suddenly realizing* “Oh, I’m sorry! Look at what I did! Will this come out?”

(Before I can answer, he attempts to erase the ink several times by pushing the “clear” button.)

Customer: “Doesn’t look like it’ll come out…”

Driving On The Blind Side Of Caution

| Victoria, BC, Canada | Uncategorized

(A couple comes up to me and points to the traffic intersection just outside the store.)

Customer: “Excuse me, what is that strange beeping sound that is happening when the lights change?”

Me: “Oh, that is the audio signal system to let blind or visually impaired people know when to cross the street. Each way has its own sound.”

Customer’s Wife: “You let your blind people drive?!”
