    Grown Out Of Growing Into Things

    | NS, Canada | Employees, Health & Body

    (A young male clerk is helping me shop for sneakers.)

    Me: “Hmmm, I like these sneakers but I think they might be just a little bit too big. Do you have them in a half-size smaller?”

    Clerk: “Well, how old are you?”

    Me: *confused*

    Clerk: “…because you might still have a bit more growing to do.”

    Me: “Uh, I’m 35.”

    Clerk: *awkward silence*

    (He then went out to the back to find a different size shoe. I was left feeling completely baffled.)

    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.)

    Didn’t Apply Themselves To The Application

    | St. Louis, MO, USA | Extra Stupid, Job Seekers

    (A customer approaches me at the counter and hands in his job application.)

    Customer: “So, do I just go in back now and find out when I work next week?”

    Me: “What? No. Handing in an application doesn’t make you an employee. There’s interviews that have to be done assuming your application is even picked, bud.”

    Customer: “Oh…”

    Nose To Pick Your Battles

    | KS, USA | Employees, Family & Kids, Health & Body

    (There is a cashier at the store where I work that is missing most of his nose. An acquaintance of mine and her young son come through his line.)

    Son: “What happened to your nose?”

    (Of course, my friend is mortified.)

    Cashier: “When I was little, my mom told me not to pick it or it would fall off, but I didn’t listen to her.”

    Caught Red Dyed

    | OH, USA | Bizarre/Silly, Bosses & Owners, Coworkers

    (I’ve recently dyed my hair. It’s not bright, but it’s still an unnatural shade of red. I’m a little worried that the manager is going to say something. I get there, and he doesn’t mention anything until about halfway through my shift.)

    Coworker: “Hey, [My Name], did you dye your hair?”

    Me: “Yeah, I did it while I was off.”

    Manager: “What color is it?”

    Coworker: “….You can’t tell?”

    Manager: “I’m colorblind…”

    Me: “…It’s brown!”

    (We all laughed. I didn’t get in trouble.)
