Me: I’d like a #7 in a meal but can I have a sundae instead of a drink? I can just pay the difference.
Cashier: I can’t do that.
Me: Okay… Can I just have a sundae then? I still don’t want the drink though.
Cashier: I still can’t do that.
Me: What? I just want the sundae, I don’t want to waste the drink.
Cashier: *Blank stare*
Me: I’ll just take a Coke, alright?

Didn’t Exceed The Cute Limit

, , , , , | Legal | August 28, 2018

(My parents and I just dropped my brother off at college after a weekend and are on our way back home. There’s a road heading out of the college town that has a notoriously low speed limit, despite being very easy to drive; basically, it’s a trap to try to get some extra cash from tickets. We’re fully aware of this, but we’re having a conversation and my dad gets distracted, missing when we cross into this area, and speeding. Sure enough, a cop pulls us over. My mom runs a business from home where she cuts vinyl and has her logo, which includes her name, in vinyl on the back of the car. The very young, male cop saunters up to the window and says flirtatiously as he leans in:)

Cop: “So, who’s [Mom]?”

(Right after he says this, he sees my forty-something-year-old parents and takes a few steps back. I’m trying not to lose it in the back seat. My mom grins.)

Mom: “That would be me.”

Cop: “Oh, that’s… nice. So, uh, you know why I pulled you over?”

(We didn’t get a ticket, probably because he was so embarrassed. We agreed he was expecting to see a car full of cute college girls and was hoping to pick one up.)

Your Card Is Bad And So Are You

(I am working as a cashier at a popular superstore.)

Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am, your card declined. Do you have another form of payment?”

Customer: “What the h*** did you do? Try it again and this time, don’t touch it!”

Me: “Of course. Slide your card again, please.”

Customer: *slides card*

Me: *presses button to process card*

Customer: “I said don’t touch it!”

Me: “Ma’am, I have to press the button, or the transaction will not process. I’m sorry, the card is still declined. Do you have another card you want to try?”

Customer: “My card is good! You are doing this on purpose! Run it again, and this time don’t you dare press that f****** button, you dumb b****!”

Me: “Please, there’s no need for that; there are children here. We can try again if you’d like, but I will need to press the button, and I don’t think the outcome will change.”

Customer: *slides card while grumbling under her breath*

Me: *presses button to process card*

Customer: *screaming now* “I told you not to press that d*** button. Are you deaf or just stupid?! Get me a manager now! I will have your job!”

(My manager is nearby and has heard most of the exchange.)

Manager: “What seems to be the problem here?”

Customer: “This b**** keeps pressing her little button and making my card decline! I want her fired immediately!”

Manager: “Ma’am, I hate to inform you of this, but there is no button she can press to make your order decline. There must be a problem with the card or with your bank; you will need to use another card, or I can set your items aside if you want to come back at another time. ”

Customer: “F*** all of you! You’re a bunch of liars! My card is good! MY CARD IS GOOD!”

(The customer continues screaming, cursing, and destroying displays until security removes her from the store.)

Manager: *to me*  “Go ahead and take your break a little early tonight.”

Mouth-y Mom And Tongue-y Tyke

, , , , , , | Right | August 19, 2018

(I am working as a cashier when a woman and little girl, maybe five years old, approach my register. The woman begins to unload her items while staring intently at her phone and ignoring the little girl. The girl starts running back and forth along the register belt with her tongue on the edge of the belt.)

Me: “Oh, sweetie, don’t put your mouth on that. It’s very dirty; you could get sick.”

Girl: *stops and looks at me, confused*

Woman: *looks up and gives me a death glare* “How dare you correct my child?!”

Me: “I’m sorry, it’s just that I don’t get to clean the register often, and people touch it and put packages of raw meat and other items like that on it all day. It’s probably covered with germs.”

Woman: “Look. No one tells my kid what to do but me; just keep your mouth shut and do your job!” *goes back to her phone*

Me: *goes back to scanning silently*

Girl: *looks at me smugly and goes back to licking the register belt*

Will Not Give Them Credit For Trying

, , , , , | Right | August 16, 2018

(I’m a manager at a discount store. Every couple of months our store has a “sidewalk sale” where we mark all of our clearance items down to $1 and put them outside. I am currently outside at the sale, training an associate on what to do. We have just finished ringing up a rather large order totaling around $200. We only have one register outside, and the only thing running to it is power, so we can only accept cash. We have signs on top of every rack, on every post, and taped to the register. The customer hands me a debit card.)

Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am, but unfortunately we are only able to accept cash.”

Customer: “Excuse me?”

Me: “We can only accept cash as form of tender.”

Customer: “Why?”

Me: “Well, ma’am, since we are outside, we are only able to have power going to the register here. We are not hooked up to our system or anything.”

Customer: *yelling* “What kind of business is this? You will take my card now!”

Me: “Ma’am, again, I have no way of taking your card. I do apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you. We do have an ATM right inside if you would like to run in and use that.”

Customer: *still yelling* “No! If you wont take my card, then it is your fault that I can’t pay. These items are mine! I spent an hour looking through all of these racks!”

(The customer then grabbed her bags and took off running. Luckily, loss prevention was right around the corner and took off running after her, tackling her in the process. The customer started hitting our LP guy and trying to bite him. She ended up being arrested for assault.)
