(Note: My sister’s friend has come over, and like typical teens, they start
gossiping about the guys they like. My sister’s friend likes a guy from
Chaska, about 2 hours away from where she lives. She didn’t tell us his
name, so I started calling him “Guy from Chaska.”)

Sister: You should come over on Valentine’s Day! We can be single together!

Her Friend: No, I don’t think I can. I might be busy.

Sister: Oh, come on! What could you be doing on Valentine’s Day?

Me: (quietly, to myself) Guy from Chaska.

(I had meant it as that they were going to spend time together, but I
realized the double meaning. I looked up horrified, and my sister and friend
are laughing their heads off.)

(My boyfriend and I are working from home. I have been trying to hurry him
up so we can go shower together. At this point, I’m lying on the couch, he’s
sitting on top of me, his laptop on the armrest of the couch.)

*Boyfriend grabs my boob*
Me: “What, forgot your mouse?”
*Boyfriend ‘moves’ and then triple taps my boob*
Boyfriend: “Select line! Select! This mouse is faulty.”
Me: “Have you heard of Not Always Romantic.com?”
Boyfriend: “No?”
Me: “You’re about to become internet famous.”

(I work in a popular grocery store. I hadn’t had anyone for a few minutes. A middle aged woman walks up to my register:)

Me: “Did you find everything okay, ma’am?”

(She ignores me. So I finish ringing up her things and complete the transaction.)

Me: *hands her receipt* “Thank you, have a great day!”

Customer: “Thanks.. B****.”

(Me and the courtesy clerk just stand their and look at each other wide-eyed like “what just happened?”)

(I was called over to the Junior department of the store since some customer just made a HUGE mess on the floor. I’m just over there picking up the mess when I see a customer walking by)

Customer: Where in the world is the small section? (she was shopping with her teenage daughter while talking to herself)

Me: Are looking for the small section? It’s right over to your left? (I point it out to her. I also mention where the clearance section is.)

Customer: Alright, thank you! (She’s says gracefully and goes on shopping)

(I’m continuing picking up items off the floor and she can clearly see that I’m doing so. She decides to shop right where I’m working but doesn’t seem to care. I try to giver her some space but I have to continue cleaning up since I wasn’t done. When I go to put some shirts away in the right location, I hear her yelling something super loud to a coworker that just walked by)

Customer: I AM NEVER SHOPPING HERE AGAIN.

Coworker: (looks confused) I’m sorry, what seems to be the problem?

Customer: I have this ‘vibe’ that the employees in this store are watching me. I am not stealing anything and think it’s ridiculous people are judging me by the color of my skin!

(I over hear the conversation and turn around to realize that she was african american. I didn’t even really think about it since we get so many diverse people in the store)

Customer: Just because I’m black does not mean you should  be spying on me! That’s fucking ridiculous I should just leave the store right now!

Coworker: I’m sure that’s not the issue. We are just trying to clean the store since it’s pretty messy. (she tries to explain but she keep yelling)

Customer: No! I saw that girl over there and ANOTHER employee spying on me just because I’m black! That is some fucking bullshit right there.

(I notice she starts talking about me and I start to panic. I have never been called racist before and don’t know why she would think that. I was only trying to help her out)

Coworker: I’m sure it’s just a misunderstanding. I highly doubt anyone thinks your stealing.

Customer: I just don’t like the vibe of this place! This has got to be the most racist thing I’ve ever experienced!

(She continues to complain about how she is being mistreated as my coworker tries to calm her down. She just went on and on until she decided to pay for her items.)

Customer: Don’t ever expect me to come back! This is completely racist and don’t appreciate the service. In fact, I would like the phone number of your manager and corporation.

(My coworker just cooperates since she doesn’t want to continue being yelled at. She finally left the store while STILL complaining.)

Me: What was that about?

Coworker: She thought you and some other coworker were watching her because she thought you were being racist.

(Which made it even more ironic was that I’m one of the few Mexican/Americans in the store that can also speak Spanish. I also have some relatives that are darker than her!)

I was working tech support for a major desktop computer chain. One of our other phone centers was down, so we were getting twice the normal volume. The ticker on the wall reached over 150 calls in the queue, with a wait time over 45 minutes. The customers weren’t very happy, but most of the time they were happy to get their issues resolved fast so that we could go on to other calls. But then this one came in…

Me: Thank you for calling [Company] Tech Support, how may I help you today?

Caller: OH MY GOD! I have been on hold for over thirty minutes! How can you conduct business like this?? I am so upset that I had to wait for this long!!

(She continues to go on to complain about the long wait time for literally ten minutes before I’m finally able to get her calmed down)

Me: I apologize for the wait, but I’m here now and I’ll do everything I can to help you. What is it you’re calling about?

Caller: It says “Click Next to Continue.” What am I supposed to do?

Me: Um….. Click … Next …?

Caller: Ok, thank you.

(I was too dumb-struck to hang up after that, but it turned out that she was in the middle of reinstalling Windows from a previous call, who had hung up for the hour-long file copy to complete, just like we’re supposed to. I had to stay on with her for almost an hour to get all the drivers installed, but I was flabbergasted that someone had to call in just to be told to click Next, when it was literally the only thing they could have done!)
