(At the cinema I work at, there’s one lady that’s been working here for eight years, but she has only been in concessions once. I asked her why, and she told me about this exchange that happened on her first day:)

Coworker: *to customer after he places his order* “Will that be all for you? Any candy for you today?”

Customer: *with an attitude* “If I wanted candy, I would’ve told you.”

(I go to visit my 24-year-old best friend in Florida, because her boyfriend called me and told me he was going to propose. After he does so, offers her a ring, she takes it, hugs him, and then studies the ring.)

Her; what is this? *points to a small diamond on the band, that is reasonably sized*
Him; it’s a diamond! *grins*
Her; right. That’s a diamond… ha!
Him; babe, that ring cost $500!
Her; that’s not enough!
Him; what?!

She takes off the ring, and throws it into the sand, then stomps off. Her boyfriend looks at me and his friends who are standing with me, avoiding her family’s gaze. We go over to him, as her family follows him, and hug him. We hung out for the rest of my vacation, and my best friend got really angry with him. I ended up telling her to shut the f*** up, and just leave him alone, if she wanted to be such a greedy b****. Her boyfriend broke up with her then, and after a few months, visited me where I live, and we went out on a few dates. It didn’t work out, but we’re still good friends, and he did find a wife who loves her “small, cheap a** ring!” And finds the original proposal both disgusting and hilarious.

(I work at a pet store part time. A woman comes in with her small child and dog. She wanders around the store opening up cans of dog food to have her dog sample. Her child runs wild, screaming, climbing on the shelves, pulling out dog beds into the aisles and pretend sleeping on them and just generally being a hellion. Of course the mom says nothing. The dog pees and poops on the floor and the woman doesn’t clean it up despite the fact that there are cleaning stations on almost every aisle. Finally, the child starts tormenting the dog by poking its eyes, pulling its tail, grabbing at it, etc. The poor dog is scrambling to try to get away, but the woman is stepping on its leash practically choking it and not intervening in any way. This is when an employee steps in.)

Employee: *to kid* “You know, your dog wouldn’t try to get away from you if you were nicer to him. Pulling tails and poking him isn’t very nice.”

(The mother’s head finally snaps to attention. She starts yelling at the employee:)

Mother: “How dare you try to parent my child! I’m the parent not you! You have no right to speak to my son!”

(At this point the employee has had enough.)

Employee: “Ma’am, you need to leave.”

(I was giving an introduction to one of our rooms to a full group when one customer asks this gem of a question.) 

Customer: “Are there glory-holes in the room?”

(Luckily, the room was pitch dark and nobody could see my reaction!)

(I received a call.)

Caller: “Do you guys sell—“ *unintelligible mumble* “—ear plugs?”

Me: “Do we sell ear plugs? Yes, we sell generic ear plugs.”

Caller: “Well what kind are they?”

Me: “Um… they’re ear plugs.”

Caller: “Well what do they look like?”

Me: “They’re small and brown…”

Caller: “Hmm… let me see what they look like. Do you have pictures of them on your website?”

Me: “…No. We just sell them in store, since they’re only like $3.”

Caller: “Huh. Well that isn’t helpful. These sound like just generic cheap ear plugs.”

Me: “That’s exactly what I said they were.”

Caller: “Ah… well that’s too simple for me. I need something more complex.”

Me: “Sorry, this is all we have.”

Caller: *click*
