    The Cake Coupon Is A Lie

    | North Bay, ON, Canada | At The Checkout, Employees, Extra Stupid, Food & Drink

    (There is a page for a manager to the checkout, which I take.)

    Me: “What’s the issue here?”

    Customer: “Your cashier is refusing to use my coupon.”

    Me: *examining the coupon* “So this is a dollar off for pound cake… It isn’t expired… and the product is correct. [Cashier], why aren’t you accepting this?”

    Cashier: *puts the cake-mix down on the scale with an exaggerated, exasperated sigh* “Look, this ISN’T a pound of cake!”

    World Peace: A Shoot ’em Up

    | Sioux Falls, SD, USA | Employees, Extra Stupid

    (While browsing at game store:)

    Clerk: “Are you looking for anything in particular?”

    Me: “World Peace.”

    (I’m a smart-a** and expected a smart-a** reply.)

    Clerk: “Let me check the computer.”

    (I followed to see what happens next while her coworker looks on in bemusement. She checks the computer.)

    Clerk: “Do you know what system it’s under?”

    (She was serious.)

    Running Late For A Very Important Rebate

    | USA | At The Checkout, Employees, Ignoring/Inattentive

    (We are shopping at a retail store for clothing for an important occasion that night and running late, so we are in a hurry.)

    Cashier: “Would you like to purchase a membership?”

    Mom: “No, thank you.”

    Cashier: “Okay, but if you get a membership your total will be reduced by 30%.”

    Mom: “I said no, thank you.”

    Cashier: “Are you sure? Because—”

    Mom: “NO!”

    Cashier: “Oh, so you’re not sure. Okay, well you just need to sign up here. All we need is your name, phone number, home address, annual income, and- ”


    Cashier: “Fine, sheesh. You don’t have to yell about it.”

    (We were on time for our event, thankfully.)

    Too Busy To Notice How Busy

    | Brisbane, QLD, Australia | Employees, Ignoring/Inattentive, Lazy/Unhelpful

    (I accompany my friend to have her eyebrows tattooed on at a small eyebrow shop in the suburbs. When we arrived there are two staff members, and my friend and I are the only customers. I know we will be there for some time so I try to take the opportunity to have my eyebrows shaped and tinted, which I had booked in for, while I wait for my friend. As the girl is tinting my eyebrows, I enquire about the cost and ask if she could also tint my eyelashes.)

    Shop Girl: “No, you’ll have to make another booking to have your eyelashes tinted!”

    Me: “Why? There is no one here and I thought I could get mine done while I wait for my friend as she is going to be over an hour having her eyebrows tattooed.”

    Shop Girl: “We are too busy! You’ll have to make another booking!”

    Me: *looking around the empty shop* “But there is no one else here.”

    Shop Girl: *almost yelling* “We are TOO BUSY!”

    Me: “Okay.”

    (I sat there for another hour and in that time not one other customer walked in the door and the shop girl spent the entire time sitting behind the counter playing on her phone.)

    Putting The ‘Y’ Into ‘Why Did I Hire You?’

    | CA, USA | Employees, Language & Words

    (One of my employees is on the phone:)

    Employee: “Systolic… that’s “S” as in Sam, “Y” as in Wyoming…”
