I’m at work at a cafe and a couple walk in. The man orders a coffee and then asks his wife what she wants to drink.
Her: I kind of want Mac & Cheese.
Him: What? Don’t think about food! How can you think about food?
Her: Because I’m hungry.
Him: How can you be hungry?!
Her: Because I missed breakfast!
Him: *pause* We JUST had lunch!
I ended up having to pretend we’d run out of milk just so I had an excuse to go into the back because I had to laugh!

Me: Can I get you anything?

Customer: No, thank you. I was wondering though, why are they’re so many alternative couples in here?

Me: Alternative?

Customer: Well, gay. I don’t like using that word though because it normalises the perverse.

Me: I see…well this is a gay bar, so that’s why there are so many gay couples.

Customer: Oh, an alternative bar! How interesting. Are you alternative?

Me: Yes, I’m gay.

Customer: How interesting!

Other than referring to anything gay as “alternative” she seemed quite pleased with everything and spent most of the evening with us.

We are having a midnight showing of the Rocky Horror Picture Show. As you would expect, we get quite a lot of lovely characters turning up. Another movie has just ended and people are leaving. One woman runs up to me screaming.

Woman: WHY ARE THERE SO MANY [SLURS] HERE!

Me: Sorry, madam, but could you please control your language. There is a showing of Rocky Horror, and some fans are quite committed.

Woman: It’s disgusting. You should be ashamed, letting so many homos into such a respectable establishment. I watched Passion of the Christ here just last week! REPENT!

She then ran out of the theater screaming bible verses to confused and horrified onlookers.

(I’m an avid sewer, but normally I can’t afford buying expensive fabrics. Once or twice a month I visit a second hand shop that specializes in plus size garments since buying a few pieces will normally give me enough fabric to work with (I’m quite short and small), and is much cheaper than the fabric store. All the employees there know me, but even if they didn’t, there are no rules or regulations about what size you can be to shop there. I stop by the shop on a Saturday afternoon to find some pieces to revamp.)

Manager: “Hey, [my name]! Good to see you. There’s a fabulously hideous dress I just put out that could use some love! It’s on the end of the dress rack.”

(I thank him, head over to the rack he indicated and find the dress. The fabric the dress is made out of is completely gorgeous. The dress however, is vile. I decide it will be perfect for my projects, so I stick it in my cart and keep looking. I notice the lady beside me glaring at me.)

Me: “Oh, um, sorry, did you want this?”

Lady: *rolls her eyes* “You’re not allowed to be in here, you know. It’s for healthy-sized people only. You’re obviously anorexic, so you can’t be in here.” (This lady is clearly no where near healthy size.)

Me: “There’s actually no rules about who can and can’t shop here. I’m sorry if I’m making you uncomfortable, but I have just as much right to be here as you do.”

Lady: “No! You need to leave! You’re body shaming me! You’re obviously just in here to show off your anorexic little body and make everyone feel awful about theirs!”

(I have absolutely no idea what to say to her, so I just move on to a different section of the store. However, she decides to follow me around and continuously tell me how I’m fat shaming just by being thin and shopping in a plus sized store, and how I’m promoting unhealthy living by being “anorexic”. Eventually I’ve had enough.)

Me: “Okay, look lady. I didn’t make you overweight, however I’ve worked very hard to maintain my body. I’m not anorexic. I go to the gym four times per week and eat healthy. That’s why I’m thin. Maybe you should try it. It’s not my fault you look like that. Now, get your fat-ass away from me and over to a gym or something.”

(The lady looks absolutely shell-shocked, and stomps away from me yelling about how she’s going to get the manager to call the police. I immediately feel ashamed after I say that, since I don’t know if she’s overweight from poor life choices or a medical condition. However, that changes as soon as I see her being escorted from the store by a couple officers. The manager comes up and fills me in.)

Manager: “Don’t worry, [my name], she does this all the time. Anyone thinner than her is always shaming her and anorexic. You’re just the first person to stand up to her and call her out.”

Me: “I feel a bit bad though, I said some pretty nasty things. I didn’t mean to, I just got fed up.”

Manager: “Oh, don’t worry about it. She could change if she wanted to. Every time she’s in here she scarfs down a 1.5L bottle of soda, a family sized bag of potato chips and a couple bars of chocolate. I think she could use a wake up call. Anyway, your items are on us today, so take whatever you want. And don’t worry, she won’t be back.”

(Husband and wife call in wanting payment extension on past due cable bill of $209)
Me: I’m sorry, It looks like if we don’t receive this past due payment by the end of today, the services would be interrupted.

Husband: You can’t give us until the 3rd when we get paid again?

Me: I do apologize, but this past due is already over a month late and you have another bill set to print before the 3rd, at that time the account will be two months past due.

Wife: Tell her thanks to her we can’t eat again for two weeks because we have no food in the house!

Husband: My wife wants to talk to you.

Me: Hi, how can I help you?

Wife: You can’t give us until the 3rd? We have been good customers. We don’t HAVE 209 to be spending on cable right now, we need to eat!

Me: I definitely understand, however, your account is already over a month past due so I cannot extend the payment out any further. I can possibly help you reduce the services to cut down on some of the costs?

Wife: I ain’t cutting nothin’ down! You and your company are crooks! When I end up in the hospital I’m taking your job and suing you and the company when me and my family starve! How would YOU like it if I came into YOUR house and told YOU that you and your family can’t eat for two weeks!

Me: (trying not to laugh) Ma’am, I absolutely get where you are coming from. As I previously stated, I can give you some options to lower your bi-

Wife: I don’t want your options! I want a f***ing extension!

Me: I’m sorry, we really cannot extend this out any further, now once you are able to make the payme-

Wife: I am going to make sure you lose your job and you’ll really be laughing once you get hit with a lawsuit for my medical bills! I am already contacting the better business bureau!
