(I am on a school trip to Disneyland, and like thousands of people around me, I am shopping around. The store I am in has a distinct early 20th century dress code for employees, and as a result, all female employees wear floor length dresses. I am dressed in Avengers leggings, Mickey Mouse ears, crappy sandals, and a tank top.

Customer: “Excuse me, can you show me the mugs you have?”

Me: *looks at my attire then looks back up* “Uhhh…”

Customer’s Friend: “She doesn’t work here, Customer 1″

(They both walked away a bit embarrassed. My friends and I had a good laugh about how much I looked like the employees”

(I get a call from a register):
Me: “Outside Lawn and Garden, how can I help you?”

Cashier: “Do you still have tomato plants on sale for 4 for 10$?”

Me: “I’m not sure, what kind of tomato plant is the customer buying?”

Cashier: “I’m not sure, it says ‘assorted.’ It’s ringing up 4$ each.”

Me: “Ok, I’ll be right there to check on it.”

(I walk over to the register and engage the customer)

Me: “Hi, what seems to be the problem?”

Customer: “Either you sell me these plants at 4 for 10$ each or cut down your sign.”

Me: I’m sorry about the price sir; you said there was a sign?

Customer: “Yes! The sign said 4 for 10 dollars!

Me: Ok, I’ll look into it (note that the plant in question has its price determined by an outside source).

Me: Unfortunately, I can’t look up the price of this plant on my (store issued phone). I can take the plant out there and try to find the sign though.

Customer: “I’ll show you where I found the sign! But if I leave this store, I’m NOT coming back (to purchase the plants).

Me: OK! Then you stay here and I will look for the sign on my own.

Customer: No!, I’m coming with you!

(The customer proceeds to lead me to the sign that supposedly reads that the plant is on sale.)

Me: “Sir, the sign says that any 19 oz plants are on sale. The size you are buying is far above that. These plants here below the sign have their size written on them as 19 oz plants,
I’m sorry for the confusion, but the smaller plants are the only ones on sale.”

Customer: “Then the sign shouldn’t be here.”

(He then proceeds to pull out his pocket knife, and cut off the zip tie that holds the sign in place. It falls to the ground and he walks away.

Me: “Do you want me to put your plants back?”

Customer: “Do whatever you want with them (turns and continues leaving).

Me: “Ok, have a good day!”

(Customer walks off without any acknowledgement.)

I then place one of his plants back on the rack, pick up the fallen sign, and walk back to the register that he was supposed to have checked out from.

Register Operator: “What happened?”

Me: “He was wrong. He didn’t read the sign correctly.”
(I then proceed to tell the cashiers what happened, including the part where he cut off the sign.

Register Operator: “Are you kidding me???”

Me: Nope, he just walked off after he cut the sign. Do you have any zip ties that I can use to replace the sign with?

(Of course they do and I immediately replace the sign)

(I call my wife and relay the events to her)

Me: (To my wife) I’m not even mad at the customer. In fact, I actually found it funny. I was laughing as I went to replace the sign. What kind of idiot either: cant read, chooses not to read, or reads and doesn’t care what he has read? Either way, the fault definitely lies with him! I honestly hope we lose him as a customer because it will be more detrimental to keep him as one!

(I’m on WIC, and I’m checking out in front of an older man and a couple of teen boys. I tell the cashier I’m using one of the checks, and the older man groans.)
Man: Ugh, why can’t you s**** just keep your legs closed? I don’t want my tax money paying for some welfare babies!
Me: Sir, I just wanna get food and go home.
Man: To your sugar daddy’s house? Does he have some mansion up in the mountains or something?
Me: No, I’m in [trailer park] right now. That’s all we can afford.
Man: F***ing trailer trash, I should have known!
(The teenage boy behind him finally gets tired and taps him on the shoulder.)
Teen: Look, sir, that poor girl already told you that she doesn’t wanna hear this, and I’m pretty tired of it too. Plus she’s probably stressed out enough, being pregnant and having to rely on government assistance. So how about you leave her alone for a bit?
Man: Well, all these kids today being rude! *storms off*
(The teen ended up buying me a couple candy bars, and told me that I shouldn’t worry about people like the older man.)

[I work at home as tech support for a major ISP. I take calls from people who have internet service and help them connect devices, retrieve passwords, etc. I also do basic  It’s Memorial Day]

Me: “Good afternoon and thank you for calling [ISP] how can I help you today?”

Customer: “My Internet isn’t working.”

(We go through normal troubleshooting. And I resolve her issue within 15 minutes or so.)

Me: “So we’ve got the laptop connected to the network again, and you can get online. Is there anything else I can help you with today?”

Customer: No, thank you. I’m sorry you had to work today.”

Me: Ah… I don’t mind too much. You have a nice rest of your day.”

Customer: You too. *hangs up*

Me: … *facepalms, thinking* And just who do you think would have taken your call if we weren’t working today?

I’m making sandwiches on the line. A coworker has just changed the trash in the dining room.

Customer: reaches all the way into the trashcan and pulls the bottom of the empty bag up through the hole in the top of the receptacle.

Customer (to coworker): “How do you expect me to throw my trash away?”

Coworker: “Um, sir, you did that yourself. I just saw you.”

Customer: puts bag back, throws trash away and leaves without another word.
