Unfiltered Story #100043

I go to the pharmacy to have my birth control pill prescription renewed. I drop off the prescription and walk away.

Employee: (very loudly calls after me) Mrs. (my name) your (brand) of birth control pills now come in a different package. Is that ok?

I walk back and tell her fine but would she mind not speaking so loudly so that the whole store could hear me. She didn’t seem to understand the problem.

When I returned an hour later to pick up the prescription I ask for the manager. I told her what happened and how one of my neighbors was actually in the store and heard what the girl said.

Me: Look , while I am certainly not ashamed of being on birth control pills, it is no one else’s business what sorts of medications I do or do not take. I would appreciate it if you spoke to your employee and teach her about respecting a customer’s privacy.

Manager: (sighs) I am so sorry. This is not the first complaint I have had about her. To make it up to you , this prescription is free.

I never saw the girl working there again.

Unfiltered Story #100012

I am the cashier in this story ringing up a customer at a well known local drug store in town where I work. Note, this is the South and it is common for people to use phrases like, “honey and sweetheart” without it meaning anything because that is just the way we talk down here. I am also female and have an engagement ring on my finger.

Me: “Did you find everything alright today sweetheart?”

The customer looks at me like I just sprouted two heads…

Customer(female): “I’m not your sweetheart!”

My coworker is behind her and doesn’t know what to say except choke down a laugh while I’m standing there looking at her like what the hell happened because I am not a lesbian nor was I trying to hit on her.

Me: “I’m sorry mam, I didn’t mean anything by it, it’s just the way I talk.”

Customer: “Well you shouldn’t talk to people like that and don’t call me mam either!”

We finished up the transaction hurriedly and in an awkward silence. After she left my coworker and I had a good laugh about it and thought of things we wish the other had said like casually mentioning my fiancée and making it subtly known that said fiancée is male.

It’s About To Become An Even Bigger Deal

(I am the manager on duty and have just received a call that we need to evacuate due to a gas leak. I am trying to contact my boss and evacuate the customers when a customer approaches me.)

Customer: “Hey, I need to ask you something.”

Me: “I’m sorry, sir, but we’ve actually been asked to evacuate due to a gas leak. It will have to wait.”

Customer: “Look, that’s not important. I need you to answer a question for me.”

Me: “No, sir, we have been ordered to evacuate. This is urgent. You need to leave the premises immediately.”

Customer: *getting irate* “I don’t understand why you’re making such a big deal out of this.”

Me: *giving up* “It is a big deal, but what can I help you with?”

Customer: “Which one of these lighters works best?”

Idiot Number One

(I’m a nurse and am bringing a patient back to do blood pressure, temperature, and a urine check before they see the doctor.)

Me: “All right, ma’am, this is going to be your room, but do you feel as if you could pee in a cup for me real quick?”

Patient: “No, not right now.”

Me: “That all right! I’ll be right back with my blood pressure cuff to check your blood pressure, okay? We can get you some water to drink after that.”

Patient: “Okay, but I really need to pee, and do you need me to save any of it to check for infection?”

Little Brother Owning The Owner

(There is a convenience store near our house that is owned by a neighbor of ours. My mom is in one day to get something with my little brother, who is probably about four years old. While Mom’s getting what she needs, the owner comes in, pulls a soda out of the cooler, and heads back out.)


(Cue the cashier trying desperately not to have a giggle-fit and my mom trying to sink into the floor.)

Owner: “You’re absolutely right, son. I need to pay for that.” *does so*
