  • August's Theme Of The Month: Best. Boss. Ever!

    Don’t Sweat It

    | USA | Bosses & Owners, Crazy Requests, Health & Body

    (I overhear two employees talking. It’s mid-July and it has been extremely hot and humid this particular week.)

    Employee #1: “So I was pushing carts outside and [Boss] saw me and told me to stop sweating so much.”

    Employee #2: “Sooo… [Boss] wants you not to work so hard?”

    Employee #1: “I guess?”

    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!”

    Will Be Waiting For A Aisle

    | USA | Employees, Lazy/Unhelpful

    (I work at a grocery store as a cashier. One day as I’m walking towards the break room a customer stops me.)

    Customer: “Excuse me, where is aisle seven located?”

    Me: “Between aisles six and eight.”

    Customer: “…”

    Me: “…”

    Customer: “…”

    Me: “…”

    Customer: “Thank you.” *walks away*

    A Raw Complaint

    | SC, USA | Coworkers, Food & Drink

    (I’m in the soda aisle, reaching back into the shelf to find a can of a particular brand, when I notice something terribly out of place. Nestled between the cans is a small packet of raw hamburger meat from the meat section. Even worse, it’s open, and starting to change colors. Naturally, I react with surprise and disgust.)

    Me: “Oh, ew! Ewwww, ew, ew, there’s raw meat in there!”

    (As I say this, an employee happens by.)

    Employee: “What?! Raw meat?”

    Me: “Yes, ma’am, and it’s open.”

    Employee: “Oh, gross! [Coworker]!”

    Coworker: ” What?”

    Employee: “She just found raw meat in the drink shelf!”

    Coworker: “I didn’t put it there. ”

    Employee: “Raw. Meat.”

    Coworker: “So get maintenance to look at it.” *pause* “Wait a second, did you say raw meat?!”

    (She walks over and tiptoes to look into the shelf where the open meat is. As I’m leaving, I hear her shout:)

    Coworker: “Oh, ew! Ewwwww! There’s a bite taken out of this!”

    Failing To Reach New Levels Of Intoxication

    | TX, USA | Employees, Food & Drink

    (Our small town is located in a “Dry County” which means any business in the county cannot have alcohol for sale. The locals know this but people from out of town and tourists don’t. As such, we get several people (usually already inebriated) asking us where our beer section is. Tired of trying to argue with drunk people that we don’t have one, I made up this excuse.)

    Customer: “Where’s your beer section?”

    Me: “Oh, it’s up on the second floor.” *our store is only one floor*

    Customer: “Okay!”

    (This works about 90% of the time and the customer will spend up until 30 minutes trying to find the stairs to the second floor before finally becoming sober enough to realize I tricked them.)
