Zero Em-Bra-assment

| Denver, CO, USA | Rude & Risque

(I work in an adult-themed store that sells clothing. I am stocking nightwear on racks when a middle-aged customer appears.)

Customer: “Excuse me, can you find a [brand of bra] in this size? I looked everywhere and can’t find it.”

Me: “Alright…”

(I disappear into the aisles and return with a bra.)

Me: “Here you go.”

Customer: “Thank you so much!”

Me: “You’re welcome.”

(The customer wanders off to the changing rooms while I return to putting the clothes on the rack. The customer returns, wearing NOTHING except for the bra he just got for her.)

Customer: “How does it look? Will my boyfriend like it?”

Me: *shocked* “Uh… sure.”

Customer: “Thank you!”

(A coworker appears after the woman returns to the dressing rooms.)

Coworker: “Happened again?”

Me: “What is it about these stores that makes people forget their modesty?!”

Customer: “You remind me of my daughter.”

Me: “Oh, thank you.”

Customer: “I call her Pony-Face!”

She Isn’t Playing Around

| MA, USA | At The Checkout, Family & Kids

(I’m ringing out an elderly customer while a coworker of mine greets new customers entering the building. I’m conversing with my customer when I hear a new customer’s daughter, about 6 years old, speaking loudly to my coworker.)

Little Girl: “No! No more toys! I have enough toys as it is! They’re all over my room and my living room!”

(She starts to list the various types of toys she has. The list goes on for quite some time.)

Little Girl: “…And that’s why I don’t need any more toys!”

My Customer: “Wow, you don’t hear that all that often!”
