I really hate that racist crap. Yea like you are such a KKK member for asking her to produce some form of identification when she didnt have her BBV card.


I had this one spanish dude call me racist cause I didnt speak spanish

Me: I am sorry?
Customer: You speak Spanish?
Me: No sorry
Customer: You are racist

I was just pointing out that I was already in a sad mood because Bernie Mac is one of my favorite comedians.

Yeah, it was kind of a blow to me too. I was looking forward to seeing more stuff from him. Our store is considered an "African American store" and so a Bernie Mac memorial was a no-brainer. Weird thing was, all day Sunday, people kept stopping at it. It was almost as if they wished they had flowers to place underneath it.

Deaf AND dumb

A few weeks ago, and older/middle aged gentelman comes up to the register.

C: Do you have the movie on that poster out there?

He points to the window behind me.

Me: 21?

C: No, that smaller one.

Me: Soul Caliber 4?

C: Yeah.

Me: Oh, that's a video gome, not a movie.

C: Where can I find it?

Me: It's in out video game section on the wall.

I point to our game section on the wall. He walks away and comes back with one of the cover boxes.

C: Do you have this where I can play it in my dvd player?

Me: Like I said. It's a video game, not a movie. You can't play it on a dvd player. Only on a video game system.

C: That's stupid.

"I know you are but what am I?" is all that comes to mind. I'm so glad I didn't have this customer, I would have been in trouble.

I once answered a customer with, "Stupid is as stupid does, Sir." He stared at me for a few seconds, then laughed. He's now one of my favourite customers.

should have told her, hold on a second, and left her on hold. when she called back ask her if she is on both lines, because you were just talking to her
