Inoperating System

| Montreal, QC, Canada | Awesome Customers, Technology

(I am at Computer Store, where I prefer to get my parts from. I have just purchased a new computer and the staff was very helpful. Within a few days I am back with my mom and I find the same person who helped me a few days before.)

Staff: “Hey!”

Mom: *who was with me when I purchased the machine* “We haven’t spent enough so we’re back.”

Me: “By the way, I have a bone to pick with you.”

Staff: *a little concerned* “Yes.”

Me: *as serious as I can* “A few days ago you sold me my new computer without a disc drive then sold me the operating system on a disk.”

Staff: “Huh?”

Me: “You sold me a disc to use on a computer with no disc drive…”

Staff: “Oh… uhhh. You didn’t have a spare?”

Me: *now cheerily to show I am not mad* “Oh, yeah, my sister’s computer is just now a little less functional.”

(Yes, to fix my computer I pulled apart my sister’s computer. I will put it back together… someday.)


Praying For Good Service

| Georgetown, TX, USA | Awesome Customers, Awesome Workers, Pets & Animals

(I have just finished a short consultation with an employee, right next to the door to what I assume is the back area. I am wearing a T-shirt with a stylized praying mantis on it, and the mantis looks vaguely like it is about to hug someone and then eat their face.)

Employee #1: “…so I’d definitely recommend this or this food for your fish.”

Employee #2: *walks out of back area and sees me* “Dude, your shirt is scary.”

Employee #1: *shooing motion* “Dude! Be polite to the customers!”

Me: “Sure is! Thanks!”


They Call Me Mr. Tubs

| London, England, UK | At The Checkout, Awesome Customers, Funny Names

(Delivering various items including a pair of large containers to a somewhat rotund gentleman, I had already brought in and been shown where to put the other items:)

Me: “Where would you like these two big tubs?”

Customer: “Put those two over there, and don’t call me that again. Only my wife is allowed to call me that.”
