Because 8 Bajillion Signs Are Always The Answer, Part 2

, | Right | October 16, 2011

Me: “Your total will be [total price].”

Customer: “That seems a little high. Were the Imaginext items buy one, get one free?”

(I check the items and see if they’re scanning correctly in the register.)

Me: “Yes, they are, but you have 3 Imaginext items and one non-Imaginext item, so that won’t ring up on sale.”

Customer: “Well, they’re all in the same aisle!”

Me: “Well, yes, but just because one item is on sale doesn’t mean everything in the aisle is on sale as well.”

Customer: “Well, you should put that on your signs!”

 

E Is For Close Enough

| Right | September 23, 2011

(Overheard in the video game section of a toy store.)

Kid: “That’s the game!”

(The father picks it up to read it as his child waits impatiently.)

Kid: “That’s the one! Let’s go!”

Father: “Hang on. I need to see if this is the right game for you.”

Kid: “But it’s rated ‘E!’ ‘E’ stands for ‘Anybody!'”

And Tell Voldemort He’s Next

, , | Right | July 14, 2011

(I work in a toy store in a local mall. One day a man comes in and stands awkwardly to one side for a long while. I realize that something is… off about him, mentally. Finally, he approaches me.)

Me: “Hi, how may I help you today?”

Customer: “Have you seen Bellatrix Lestrange?”

Me: “We don’t carry any Harry Potter toys, but you might be able to find some Harry Potter stuff at Hot Topic.”

Customer: *looking completely serious* “No, I’m looking for Bellatrix. I’ve already killed Malfoy and now I’m looking for that b****.”

Some Customers Just Waltz In

, , , | Right | April 25, 2011

(I am a customer in the video game section of a toy store. Another customer comes in and approaches an employee.)

Customer: “Do you have the dance dance game?”

Employee: “We might. For which system?”

Customer: “Dancing?”

Employee: “No. We need to know, because they only work on the system they were meant for.”

Customer: “It’s for the television.”

Employee: “Yes, but-”

Customer: “You put the thing on the floor and jump around like this!”

(The customer starts jumping around. It is actually a fairly good representation of playing ‘Dance Dance Revolution’.)

Ah, Fathers, Part 6

, , , , , | Right | December 10, 2010

(I’m stocking the shelves. A male customer with a small child of about four comes up to me and asks if there is a post office nearby. I tell him there is one a couple of blocks away. He looks at the clock, and then takes his son’s hand and prepares to walk out of the store. The child doesn’t want to go.)

Customer: *to the child* “Come on, we need to go to the post office. It’ll close soon.”

Child: “I want to look at toys.”

Customer: “We have to go now. We can come back later.”

Child: “You go. I’ll wait here and play.”

Customer: “You can’t.”

Child: “Why?”

Customer: “Because your dad will go to jail for that.”

(The child looks perplexed.)

Customer: *trying to explain* “Think smaller Christmas present. And you’ll have to stay with Grandma a lot.”
