I'm so glad I'm not the only one who thinks like this! You can call me ginger bitch, since I am a ginger and I have no soul. (ha.) Oh, and I'll go ahead and apologize for my foul language... I've got a sailor mouth.
Anyway, I've worked in a grocery store, a tanning salon, and a used entertainment store. I have loads of crazy custy stories. Since this is my first post, I'll start with the grocery store. This grocery store was in my hometown... which is a very small town. I worked there for two years during high school, and I loved to hate it.
There were 3 top customers who take the fucking icing on the cake for the WTF award. Dumb Bitch, Pee Guy, and Crazy Lady. Now, dumb bitch was an older lady who came through my line and was just the nicest lady. Sure fooled me. Everything was great and dandy, and then she had to use the credit machines. Now, granted, we have pens on the counter for people to write checks, but fuck, I never thought someone would seriously use ink pens on a machine. I'm about to ring up the next customer because her transaction went through and she says in the most annoying voice I've ever heard, "Um, my name didn't go through, I don't want to be charged twice."
I'm thinking.. what the hell?? So I turn the machine around, notice she had used ink pen, turned it back around and say, "Oh, it's fine, I'll take care of it!" I didn't want to tell her she was a fucking moron. But really?? She went to tell on our boss about how I "blew her off." My fucking bad.
I spent two hours trying to clean that damn ink off the machine. I watched her do it again to a coworker, who received the same treatment. When she finally tried to use a pen the third time I saw her in the act, I finally just said "Do you realize you're using an ink pen on our expensive machines?!" She looked like she was a deer caught in the headlights.
After that until I left for college, every time she'd use the credit machines she'd make a point of pointing out that the ink pens shouldn't be so near the machines.
What...the...fuck. Has this happened to anyone else?? Please tell me it isn't just my hometown... (although that's a story for another day... no, seriously. You'll see why). I really should get back to studying, so I'll tell you about Pee Guy and Crazy Lady another day. Damn creepy custys!
