I have worked for this small store of a big chain supermarket for 4.5 years now – during my degree and after it. I get some weird comments from customers. The area I work in is full of diversity, myself being Muslim and work with athiests, christians, black, white and asians. We get a lot of customers who don’t speak English, who have just moved to the UK as well as people who do speak English etc. So quite diverse.

I was serving a black gentleman who handed me a £50 note. As a small retail store we have to check these and then get the manager to double check it before we can accept and see if we can give change for it.

I checked it and called for a manager (who is white and I’m brown) and the customer said to me “Is it because I’m black?” I looked at him in shock and me and my manager looked at each other like “what the heck!”.

I politely said it’s a big note and it is policy to check big notes by more than one person. When in reality I just wanted to ask him if he was freaking kidding me!

The next person in the line was a black woman who I served next and she came up and ranted how out of order the guy before was.

I don’t understand how you would jump to that conclusion!

When looking for an item and not finding it, on shelf, I then see a staff member finishing with another customer.

Staff member seemed out of breath, so I commented thinking she’d been rushing to help the other customer.

She replied that it was her asthma, but rushing over the store didn’t help.

After she helped me, she thanked me for noticing she was strugling.

(I am a shopping at Target with my boyfriend, I’m 20 and him 21, helping him pick out jeans when a girl who looks about 15 years of age comes up to us, she is wearing red hipster sunglasses and a red One Direction t-shirt)
Girl: “Hello, mind if I tell you guys something?”
Me:*curios* “Go ahead!”
(suddenly What Makes You Beautiful starts playing from somewhere)
Girl:*sings us the whole song with dance moves and everything*
Girl:*after the song is finished* I really meant what I said, you are very pretty and your friend is quite handsome, stay you and don’t change” *walk away smiling*
Boyfriend:”That was interesting but it made my day”
Me: “Yea that was very sweet.”
(a couple minutes later We see her, singing to someone to an old couple, then the manager walks up)
Manager: “Exuse me miss, please turn off your music and exit the store, you are disrupting the customers.”
Girl:” Oh did you receive a complaint?”
Manager: “No but I think you are being annoying and pestering our customers. This is obviously a YouTube stunt, and I don’t appreciate it.”
Girl:” The only thing hidden here is my amp *gestures to her Beats Pill on a shelf*, I have no cameras, I just believe the world should smile a little more often and cry a little less, so I make people smile by singing to them, which will hopefully prevent them from crying for a bit”
Manager:*shocked* Well I’m sure these costumers did not enjoy it* gestures to older couple*
Older Woman:”I loved it, she made my day”
Boyfriend: “She made mine as well”
Older Man: “Who is that band, I like their music and would like to hear more”
Girl:” That was One Direction, I can show you to their new album in the music section. That was one of their old songs however I can play their new ones for you before you buy the album so you know if you like it”
(She leads the older couple the the music section, leaving the manager standing there shocked, I later see the couple with quite a few One Direction albums in their cart. Not only did the girl make customers happy, but she convinced them to buy a product they would not have without her)

(I’m cashiering and a customer and her teenage daughter come up to my register. Her daughter grabs a pair of large sunglasses from a nearby shelf and puts them on.)

Daughter: “Hey mom! Look! Swag!”

Customer: *Looks at the daughter, makes a face, then looks to me* “I am so sorry.”

Customer: no its definitely gone up
Me: no not for at least 2 years (how long I’ve been working there)
Customer: ah no its gone up by 40 cents since last time
Me: okay then…
