Mexico Will Pay The Tax For Me

| Des Moines, IA, USA | Extra Stupid, Money, Politics

(A customer has been somewhat annoying and his wife is getting tired of it. He becomes unconvinced that their 10% off coupon works and begins doing the math, saying that it should only have been $50.)

Wife: “You have to add the tax.”

Husband: *serious* “I don’t pay taxes. I’m a Trump supporter.”

Has No Liquidation Contemplation

| Australia | Crazy Requests, Technology

(A huge nationwide electronics chain is closing down, signs are everywhere and it’s been all over the news; you couldn’t miss the fact we are closing.)

Customer: “I bought this DVD player here two weeks ago and just found out it doesn’t play movies on USB. Can I get a refund?”

Me: “Sorry, I can’t accept any stock back unless faulty since we entered liquidation this week.”

Customer: “Can I get an exchange, then?”

Me: “I’m afraid not. No refunds or exchanges can be done anymore.” *points to one of the six A4 signs on the counter: ‘All sales final. No refunds unless faulty.’*

Customer: *while storming off* “This is ridiculous; I’m never shopping here again!”

Me: *to my coworker* “Like that will make a difference…”

Don’t Sell Yourself Short On Independence Day

| MA, USA | Crazy Requests

(I’m part of a store ops team for a very well-known store. The company makes the decisions and rules, and I follow them. A customer has just approached me.)

Customer: “Can I ask you a question?”

Me: “Sure!”

Customer: “Where do you get off advertising summer chairs and beach towels and stuff when you barely have any in the store?”

Me: “Uh… well, we’ve sold out of a lot of our summer stuff already.”

Customer: “I understand that part but it’s not even the 4th of July and you’re already getting rid of the summer stuff…”

(She walked away mid-sentence, angry and presumably still talking but not anywhere near me. Also, it was two days before the 4th of July and these products were on sale for months already.)
