Overlord PX53A-Z Is Not Pleased

| | Right | November 25, 2007

(A woman gets frustrated after I switch out for a co-worker to go on break on Black Friday)

Woman Customer: “Ugh! That is so frustrating! Why didn’t she wait to leave until I was finished?”

Me: “Ma’am, she’s been here since 3:45 this morning, and she needed a break. Plus, we’re not robots.”

Woman Customer: “Good. I hate robots.”

Awesome Customers Do Exist

| | Right | November 22, 2007

(8:55 pm: I’m guarding the door at work, waiting for the last couple of customers to finish up and get the heck out. They are going kinda slow, but I can’t kick them out because they were in the store before we close.

9:05 pm: They finally got what movies they wanted and are just about to pay when another guy tries to come in)

Late Customer: “Hold on please! I just need to get one thing!”

Me: “Sorry sir, it’s past 9pm. These are the last customers for the night.”

Late Customer: “But all I want to get is a PS2. Why can’t you get it for me?”

Me: “Because you came in after 9, we want to close up.”

Late Customer: “But they are getting stuff.”

Me: “They were in here before 9.”

Late Customer: “So you aren’t gonna help me? I wanna speak to your manager! Are you the manager?”

(This is the fun part, one of the women buying stuff chimes in)

Woman Customer: “Yeah, I’m the manager and we need to get the heck out of here to go home! You should have gotten here earlier!”

Late Customer: *Flabbergasted* “Wha? Well… YOU LOST A SALE!” *storms out*

Manager (the real one): “…Wow. Thank you very much!”

Me: “Ditto! Thanks a lot and have a wonderful night!”

The Employee Is Always Wrong

| | Right | November 21, 2007

Customer: “Excuse me, how much is this?”

Me: “$99.00.”

Customer: “But I get 20% off right?”

Me: “Yes, with the coupon you do.”

Customer: “Okay, so how much would that be?”

Me: “Uhm… about $80.”

Customer: “Really? Are you sure? Do the math again!”

Me: “Okay, well technically it’s $79.20, but with tax it’ll bring you well over $80.”

Customer: “That can’t be right. 20% off of $100 isn’t $80! Are you sure? Can I talk to a manager??”

(Customer goes to speak to manager, and realizes that she’s the one who’s wrong when they do it at the cash register. She then leaves (after buying everything) and comes by to me)

Customer: “You’re still wrong. It came out to be $79.20 before tax.”

Me: *sigh*

Well, That Came Out Of Nowhere

, | | Right | November 21, 2007

(Two middle-aged women walk into the store)

Woman 1: “I need a guitar stand for my son.”

Me: “Let me go grab one for you.”

(I go into the back for a minute and return with the stand)

Me: “They’re $18.95 plus tax.”

Woman 2: “You’re an animal.”

Me: “Excuse me?”

Woman 2: “You’re an animal. It’s a good thing.”

Me: “Alright then.”

Woman 2 (to Woman 1): “I don’t know why people always get confused when I tell them that…”

Delusional Hearingitis

| | Right | November 14, 2007

(We close at 7:00 PM every Sunday; a couple was still shopping in my department at 7:13pm and we already gotten a call from security to tell them pretty much to get out)

Me: “Ma’am, just to let you know we’re already closed. If you need to buy something please bring it to the counter now.”

Customer: “Closed? what time do you guys close? It’s only 7:13!”

Me: “We closed at 7:00.”

Customer: “Honey, hurry up. They’re about to close. Who’s ever heard of a store that closes at 7:13pm, thats just so weird!”

Me: “Ma’am, we closed 13 minutes ago; we’ve been closing at 7:00 for at least the past 6 years I’ve been here, and there’s nothing weird about that.”

Customer: “Well I just thought that it would make more sense if you guys closed on an hour. Or at least least have an announcement if you guys are closing at some queer hour.”

Me: “Ma’am, there were 4 announcements loud and clear before we closed.”

Customer: “But why would you close a store at 7:13? That’s just queer, are you sure the store is even closed?”

Me: “Again ma’am, we closed 13 minutes ago at 7:00, and yes I’m sure the store is closed–why would I be lying?”

Customer: “I don’t know. *her boyfriend comes out of the fitting room* “Honey c’mon, let’s buy this stuff and get out of here. Can you believe they close the store at 7:20? Isn’t that just so weird?”

Me: “7!! We CLOSED at 7 o’clock!!”
