(I started working as a cashier when I was 15 and got hired at the same time as another girl, who was 17 at the time. It was one of our first shifts without a supervisor there to train us. My coworker’s first customer was bagging her groceries a few feet away from customer #2, who was cashing out. Customer #1’s bag ripped and she made an annoyed groaning sound.)

Customer #2: “Damn, that sound is turning me on. I love when the women scream and make lots of noise in bed. But I bet you know all about that, don’t you?” *winks*

Coworker: “Erm, no actually..I don’t.”

Customer #2: “Well make sure you keep that in mind. *walks out*

(Myself and my friend Nick were finishing some work we were doing and stopped off to get a bite to eat at this restaurant. It was early in the day and they did all day breakfast, so I ordered a big breakfast platter for myself. I offered to buy breakfast/lunch for Nick but he said he wasn’t feeling too well and just wanted a glass of milk. I’m in my early 40’s and Nick is in his early 20’s but could easily pass for 15 years old. I was complaining good-naturedly about my husband to Nick since they’re also friends. Because Nick wasn’t feeling well, he didn’t look especially cheerful or chatty.)

Me: Here. At least have a piece of toast? You should eat SOMETHING.

Nick: Oh, ok. *takes the toast and nibbles it tiredly*

(An older lady rushed up to us, glowering, and out of the blue, began fussing at us.)

Lady: I can’t believe you! Look at you! *points to me and my breakfast* You’re eating this BIIiIiIG breakfast while your young son only gets a piece of toast and milk!

(Nick and I look utterly confused and surprised)

Lady: And you just complain and complain to the poor boy about his father! That’s not right! He shouldn’t hear you put down his father like that! Look at how hurt he is! Hungry and hurt! You are so selfish! Poor thing is starving and you only order food for yourself!

Me: *in a VERY confused and shocked tone* Ma’am, Nick’s my FRIEND. He’s not my son, and he’s 22. We’re talking about my husband because Nick’s friends with him.

Nick: *Also confused and shocked* Yeah. Honestly. She’s not my mother. I live on my own. She offered to buy me breakfast but my stomach’s a bit queasy and I said I didn’t want any. I’m having a hard time even eating this toast which she shared with me.

(The lady got on a look of utter horror at her mistake. She started to back away like we were vampires intent on eating her and stammered at us.)

Lady: I.. I’m sorry! I’m old! Old people make mistakes! I couldn’t help it! I’m old! I make Old People mistakes!

(She then made sure her male companion had paid and fled the restaurant without looking back!)

Scared Spitless

(While working the photo lab area on Halloween, I decide to wear a homemade mask I made four years ago. The mask is of the scary face, bulging bloodshot eyes, and very long nose of a character from a popular RPG series. While a fun mask to wear — customers get a kick out of it — how I made it has the unfortunate side effect of limiting my vision and making it a little hard to breathe. Occasionally I take it off and leave it on the counter. On one such occasion, while I’m helping one customer, another decides to put it on and take a selfie, thinking it might be a cool, store-bought mask. While I probably wouldn’t have minded if they had asked, I decide to have little fun at her expense.)

Me: “Do you realize how much saliva I put into that thing?”

Customer: “EW!” *throws mask across the counter*

(And that, my friends, is why you don’t try every mask you see.)

His Argument Is Getting Week-er

(The YMCA where I volunteer switched from swiping cards to scanning them in March. As the machine we used to swipe the cards is attached to the front desk, we cover it in duct tape so that members will refrain from using it. It is now August.)

Me: “Good morning!”

(The member ignores me and gets out his wallet to find his card. After taking a few minutes to find his card, he attempts to swipe it over the duct tape.)

Me: “You can actually just scan your card over here, sir.”

(I gesture to the scanner, but the member continues to ignore me.)

Me: “Excuse me, sir, but we no longer swipe the cards; we have switched to the scanner.”

(I gesture to the scanner once more and the member finally takes notice of me.)

Member: “Why can’t I swipe my card?”

Me: “We have switched over to this scanner.”

Member: “When did that happen?”

Me: “We actually switched over a couple of months ago.”

Member: “I swiped my card last week!”

(I know this is not possible, as the swipe machine no longer works and has not for months.)

Me: “Okay… Here, let me do this for you.”

(I take the card from the member, scan it, and let him into the facility.)

Coworker: “He does this every week!”

Just as an intro, I work for as quality assessment (I listen to calls to make sure the employees aren’t fooling around) for a cellphone company, sometimes I hear funny calls.

Coworker : “My name is [Name], how I can help you?”
Customer : “Hey, my name is [Name], I want to pay my bill.”
Coworker : “Okay sir, could you give me your phone number to see the account?”
Customer : “Yes it’s [his number]”
Coworker : “Good, and the password on the account?” (We need the name and either a password the client sets or two infos about the client to validate them)
Customer : “WHAT?! No, I don’t want you to see my account!”
And the client hung up angrily

This one I overheard from my coworker who’s sitting next to me :
Coworker : “Hi my name Ahmed, how I can help you?”
The caller says something.
Coworker : “Okay sir, but before I’d need your cellphone number and the reason why you want to speak to a supervisor.”
Our supervisor hears it and gets ready to take the call.
Coworker : “Hold the line, I’ll get you my supervisor.” He then explains the issue and transfers the call to our supervisor.
Supervisor : “Hello, my name is Mehdi, my agent told…” then I just hear the client yelling something.
Supervisor : “No sir, you’re not calling in Arabia.”
All the agents around had a good laugh when he said that.
