One Foto In The Grave

| Orlando, FL, USA | Family & Kids

(I am working the photo center of a thrill ride, where people can look at and buy the photo taken of them in their ride car. An older couple comes up and orders their picture.)

Older lady: “I don’t need a bag. My kids and grandkids are right over there.” *points to a corner of the store*

Me: “Sure thing. Here’s your printed picture. How does it look?”

Older lady: *taking the photo* “That’s great! They’re gonna love it when we’re dead!” *walks off*

The Sweet Smell Of Savings

, | Chino, CA, USA | Extra Stupid, Tourists/Travel

(A customer comes to my window and I help him get his entry and equipment rentals. I also give him a coupon for his next visit.)

Me: “Here is a coupon for $5 off your next visit.”

(The customer starts to scratch the coupon.)

Customer: “What’s it do?”

Me: “Sir, it’s not scratch and sniff. It gets you $5 off you next visit.”

(He scratches the coupon with more force, then smells it.)

Customer: “I don’t smell anything. What’s it do?”

Me: “It’s a $5 off coupon for your next visit.”

(The customer scratches the coupon some more.)

Customer: “Ugh! I don’t understand. I scratch it and it doesn’t smell like anything. What does it do?!”

Me: “The next time you come back, you bring this with you and you save $5 on your entry.”

Customer: “Oh, so it doesn’t smell like anything?”

Me: “No.”

Customer: “And I save $5 on my next visit?”

Me: “Yes.”

Customer: “Oh, I’m from out of state, so, no thank you!”

Misery Demands Company

| San Antonio, TX, USA | Uncategorized

(I work at a food stand that only sells a few things. It’s early on a weekday and few people want to buy what I sell before dinnertime. There is a latin music show going on in the open-air theater across from me, and since I’ve already cleaned everything that can be cleaned and I am rather bored, I’m dancing to the music a bit. An old man walks up to my counter.)

Me: *stops dancing* “Hi, what can I get you sir?”

Customer: “You look like you’re having fun, young lady.”

Me: “It’s pretty slow today, so we try to keep ourselves entertained. What would you like today?”

Customer: “You’re not allowed to have fun when you work at a place like this. I would know. I worked at a place like this once.”

Me: “Oh, I’m sorry, sir. Can I get you anything?”

Customer: “No, just don’t have too much fun!”
