Nicest thing a customer did for you

One time this girl just had a 10 dollar bill and no change or debit/credit card and her total was 10.72. It was raining outside so I just said "Don't worry about it" and pulled the 72 cents out of my pocket and she was SO THANKFUL that she didnt have to go out to her car to get change.

A week later she dropped an envelope off with my name on it with 5 bucks and a thank you note in it.

I had a customer who had a coupon for two popcorns, two pops, and two movies; he gave me the pops. I thought that was pretty nice of him

I had a customer give me a really nice book for Christmas- about something we had discussed liking. I loved that customer.

I had a little kid the other day (about 8) tell me I was the nicest person at Blockbuster. That was really nice.

One of my regular customers had been looking for a copy of Bollywood Queen for the longest. I saw it checked in, held it, and called her. She came in later that week with a bottle of her favorite wine and gave it to me.

Damn I miss the nice customers.

I haven't had any customers do something nice for me in the 4 years I've worked here.

I had a customer bake me a cake for my birthday.
Also had a customer bring me Thanksgiving dinner since I was working that day.

I didn't realize until the last couple of days how much I miss my regulars.

i worked on halloween and had a customer bring myself and my CSR a full spread of turkey, mashed potatoes, etc. from boston market. Just last week I had a guy give me VIP passes to a strip club. (Haven't used them.... yet.)

A giggly group of young ladies approached me with a long list of movies they needed for a class project. I went and found all of them, like two dozen, and did my best to rank them according to how relevant I thought they were to the project. They kept asking me questions and, having low resistance to the commands of pretty females, I obliged every one without getting annoyed, though I had been in the middle of watching Game 6 of the 2003 NLCS on the Directv. Finally they took the best six and let me be (I returned to the game literally just in time for the inning where the Cubs fell apart). A month later I showed up for a shift and found a letter addressed to me, from them, explaining that they got an A on the project, and attached to a $20 gift card. I thought that was sweet.

A bunch of my regulars bought me birthday cards.

One of my regulars brought me dinner on Christmas Eve, along with candy canes and a small gift.

And I had someone tell me today that I'm the nicest person they've ever encountered. That totally made my day.

Just yesterday, I had a customer ask me if I've lost weight. While I did legitimatly lose 50 lbs. and it's really obvious, that really makes your day having someone ask that.
