Eyes Cream

| Germany | Health & Body, Ignoring & Inattentive

(I am browsing the shelves in a drugstore when I overhear this dialog between a customer and an employee.)

Customer: “Excuse me, I have a question about this product.” *holds up an eye cream*

Employee: “Yeah?”

Customer: “Does this contain any oils?”

Employee: “It’s an eye cream.”

Customer: “I know. I just wanted to know if there are oils in there.”

Employee: “It’s for your eyes.”

Customer: “And I intend to use it that way. Are there any oils in it?”

Employee: “You should use this for your eyes only.”

Customer: “Okay, thanks.” *puts the cream back and leaves*

When Is A Sale Not A Sale…

| Dubuque, IA, USA | Awesome Customers, Awesome Workers

(It’s the day after Halloween, and the drugstore still has a few bags of trick-or-treat candy, but there’s no sale sign up. I see a bag of my favorite candy, which is hard to find, so I grab it.)

Cashier: “I’m afraid these are not on sale.”

Me: “Yeah, I didn’t see a sign, so I figured they’d be regular price.”

Cashier: *stares at me for a moment, as if he’s waiting for me to throw a tantrum* “You know what? I’m going to give them to you for the sale price.”

Not Doing Some Fine Coin

| CA, USA | At The Checkout, Employees, Extra Stupid

(My cashier is helping a customer and frantically waves me over to the register.)

Cashier: “Am I allowed to accept these as payment?”

(He holds up a US gold dollar coin.)

Me: “Is it legal tender?”

Cashier: “Yes?”

Me: “Correct. Have you ever seen one of them in the till drawer before?”

Cashier: “Yes.”

Me: “So how do you think they got in there before?”

Cashier: “Um… I’m not sure.”

(I give up at this point.)

Me: “Yes, we take them.”

Cashier: “Oh, okay!”

Fifty Shades Of Grey

| FL, USA | Coworkers, Rude & Risque

(A coworker and I are working on stocking makeup. We are discussing the strange names shades of nail polish have like ‘back to the fuchsia’ and ‘sugar daddy.’)

Me: “Let’s get naked!”

(My coworker’s eyes go wide.)

Me: “No no no, that’s the name of this color!”

Coworker: “Oh, thank god!”
