    Out In A Flash

    | MI, USA | At The Checkout, Employees, Holidays, Rude & Risque, Themed Giveaway

    (My husband and I are on our way home from his grandparents’ house on Christmas Day. We don’t get out that way very often, so we decide to stop at a popular adult bookstore along the way. Once we are there, my husband remembered that he had left his ID at home. We went in, hoping we wouldn’t get carded, as we’re both 22 and quite young looking. When we walked in, the only employee, a male around our age, walks up.)

    Employee: “Can I see your IDs?”

    (I pull mine out, and then gave a big smile to my husband.)

    Me: “See you in a little bit!”

    (The employee checks my ID, and then goes about his business. My husband returns to the car. I call the employee over for help, but he is kind of moody, and unwilling to help much. I then go up to pay. While he was trying to find the barcode for the shoes, I decided to break the somewhat awkward silence.)

    Me: “Do you like working here?”

    Employee: “It’s better some days than others… and I have to work on Christmas. The best part is that I see a lot of boobs.”

    Me: “Oh?”

    Employee: *smiles* “Yeah, girls like to flash me. Especially today, since I have to work on Christmas and all.”

    (He looks down at me expectantly.)

    Me: “That’s nice.”

    (It is silent for a minute, before he bagged up my items. I hurriedly grab the bag, and turn to leave.)

    Employee: *calls out* “Don’t you want to—”

    (I wait until I get in the car and we are down the road before I tell my husband. His only response?)

    Husband: “I told you that you were hot!”

    Spoon Feeding You An Exit Strategy

    Superstore

    Fairbanks, AK, USA

    (My husband and I have just moved in together. I brought my dishes with me which include some pretty cheap spoons with plastic handles. My husband, as a result, keeps snapping the handles off when he uses them because the plastic is so useless. Because of this I decide to just replace all of my spoons with solid metal ones.)

    Clerk: “Hi. How’s your day going?”

    Me: “Oh, not too bad.”

    (As I continue loading my groceries and spoons onto the conveyer belt, the clerk begins to flirt with me. I smile politely and casually mention one of the items I am buying is for my husband. Undeterred, the clerk continues to flirt with me until the spoons get down the belt to him.)

    Clerk: *holding up five packs of spoons* “Wow, that’s a lot of spoons. You having a party or something?”

    Me: “No. My husband keeps breaking my spoons in half so I figured I should buy some extras.”

    Clerk: “Oh… well. Have a nice, uh, day!”

    (He avoided me after that.)

    Dropped The Ball On That One

    | Newton, MA, USA | At The Checkout, Employees, Rude & Risque, Themed Giveaway

    (I frequented a store and have had a few run-ins with a strange male employee. He speaks in a monotone and wears a plastic glove on only one hand. I’m buying two chocolate eggs and some sleeping medicine.)

    Me: *puts items on counter and one egg rolls quickly toward the cashier* “Oh, no!”

    Cashier: *catches the egg from falling* “Don’t worry. It didn’t fall on the floor.”

    Me: “Awesome!”

    Cashier: “And it didn’t hit my balls either.”

    (I am speechless and cannot make eye contact. After the rest of the transaction is completed, I go to leave.)

    Cashier: “Goodbye… for now.”

    The Poster Child For Creepiness

    | Erie, PA, USA | At The Checkout, Bizarre/Silly, Employees, Family & Kids, Themed Giveaway

    (My husband and I are shopping at a large store where you can buy things in bulk. The guy cashing us out notices the lady in line behind me starting to unload her cart. She only has a few items, all which are heavier, and a small child.)

    Cashier: “Ma’am, you can just leave everything in the cart.”

    Me: “Even the child?”

    Cashier: *in a low growl* “ESPECIALLY the child.”

    (I looked at him stunned, as I was just getting ready to say that, in a similar manner. I was laughing all of the way to the car. He totally made my day!)

    Pajama Drama

    | Des Moines, IA, USA | At The Checkout, Bizarre/Silly, Employees, Family & Kids, Language & Words, Rude & Risque, Themed Giveaway

    (I work at a nice golf course restaurant as a waiter. I’m at my table, wrapping things up. I’m a 21-year-old man.)

    Me: “Is there anything else I can do for you this evening?”

    Woman: “You can watch my kids!”

    Me: “Ooh, I’m working right now, but after work, sure. We’ll have a pajama party!”

    (Very awkward silence follows. The word ‘pizza’ was going through my head, but I changed it on the fly because, how stupid, they just ate and wouldn’t want a pizza-party while full. So I replaced ‘pizza’ with the word ‘pajama’ due to the ‘P’ sound having already escaped my mouth. I’ve never seen her or her eight- and five-year old sons since.)
