What The Sell Is Her Problem

| Dover, DE, USA | Working | January 3, 2013

(This is my second weekend working the races and selling tickets. I’m helping a gentleman find the restrooms with the racetrack’s booklet map, which I’ve been handing out to visitors.)

Coworker: “Don’t do that.”

Me: “…Excuse me?”

Coworker: “You’re not supposed to actually help people, just sell them s***.”

(I ignore my coworker and finish helping the gentleman.)

Me: “Is there anything else you need help with, sir?”

Gentleman: “Don’t let this old crow tell you how to do your job, sweetheart. You’re doing a great job!” *leaves*

Coworker: “You’re just supposed to sell them s***, not actually help!”


He Auto Listen Better

| USA | Working | January 3, 2013

(Years ago, I was shopping for a car with my older boyfriend. He hadn’t said much since it was my purchase. Note: we walked in holding hands and being obviously affectionate.)

Me: “I’m looking for a smaller 5-speed car… maybe a Toyota.”

Sales Guy: “Well, we have this great car here.”

(It was a huge 4-door automatic sedan.)

Me: “That’s not what I’m looking for. I don’t want an automatic. I want a 5-speed manual, and something smaller and a little sportier.”

Sales Guy: “I’m not sure we have what you are want.” *to my boyfriend* “Sir, if you would just teach your daughter to drive a stick, she’d have a lot more choices.”

(Surprised, my boyfriend says nothing, but backs up a step or two.)

Me: “First off, he’s not my father; I wouldn’t be that affectionate with him! Second, you haven’t heard a word I said. So, you lose a sale!”

Someone Missed The Employee Orientation

, | Dunmore, PA, USA | Working | January 3, 2013

(My dad is a general manager at a popular fast food chain. He’s at a different store when this happens.)

Employee: “The sign out front won’t stay up.”

My Dad: “Why, what’s the problem?”

Employee: “The suction cups on the top of the sign don’t stick.”

My Dad: “Do the bottom cups work?”

Employee: “Yes.”

My Dad: “Then switch the top suction cups with the bottom ones.”

(The employee goes to fix the sign. Later, my dad goes outside, only to see the sign hanging upside-down.)
