This happened the other night at about 30 minutes before closing. 2 guys, about 18 or so, came up to my counter renting Pineapple Express. It was obvious they were high as hell.

Cust: So... do you, like, have to be high to watch this movie?
Me: ...No...you don't have to be high to watch this movie. *continues to ring up movie and munchies*
Cust: Did you see this movie?
Me: Yes, I did actually. I really liked it. It was funny.
Cust: So... were you, like, high when you watched this movie?
Me: ................*long pause*..............No... I was not high when I watched this movie.
Cust: Oh. So that means it can be funny while not being high?
Me: Yes, it can be funny while not being high.

I finished ringing the 2 guys up, and as they were leaving, they talked about the commercial part where James Franco kicks his foot through the windshield, and were laughing until they left the store. Their total was about $20... 1 movie and a shit load of confection munchies.

6-9-1-4.

Here's a strange one (although I'm pretty sure I know why she did it):

Cust: (Walks up to counter, plops down a few DVDs) 6-9-1-4.
Me: Excuse me?
Cust: 6-9-1-4.
Me: I'm sorry, can I please have your Blockbuster card or your ID?
Cust: *very slowly* 6...9...1...4.
Me: Sorry, but I don't know what those numbers mean. Can I please have your Blockbuster card or see your ID?
Cust: 6-9-1-4. Just type it.
Me: Ma'am, I'm not sure what 6-9-1-4 means, but I don't need those numbers. I need your card or your ID to bring up your account.
Cust: Its 6-9-1-4...I've rented here for years. 6-9-1-4! *very loudly* 6-9-1-4!!!
Me: Again, I'm sorry, but I can't do anything with those numbers. They have no significance to me. I NEED your card or your ID PLEASE.
Cust: Well I don't HAVE a card. I HAVE my numbers: 6-9-1-4.
Me: Well do you have your driver's license? That'll work.

Then she FINALLY handed me her lisence and I pulled up her account.

I'm guessing that 6914 was her renter's ID or whatever you call it for one of the old local rental places. Apparantly the last small rental store in our area closed down over 2 years ago (just before I started working at Blockbuster). So much for coming to our store all the time...

Netflix

And on a seperate note, I love it when I ask customers if they want to do whatever program we happen to be pushing at the time and they reply "no thanks, we do Netflix." Like that's supposed to hurt my feelings or make me go "oh, well please rent here more." My favorite response came one day when I was 1 pass short of my goal for the week and not in the greatest mood:

"Netflix huh? That's awesome. What's the matter, they didn't have any copies of the newest movies that came out this week, huh? Oh, you're renting the movies that came out this week right NOW from Blockbuster? Hmm..."

It never ceases to amaze me... Next someone will be asking for DVD-R discs to copy our movies!

In the past we've sold both blank tapes and DVD-Rs. I was probably the only purchaser of both, at least until we got rid of them, when of course everyone started asking for them.

It's NATURAL.

So, I was just wrapping up my shift, and my heart lifted as my SL pulled into the parking lot to relieve me. I then turned around to wait on a young Mexican man and his wife...

...who was breast-feeding her baby, in line behind her husband. I was in shock. However, I didn't know quite what to say, so I just didn't. They paid for their videos and left.

However, my next customer was a regular of mine:

"WAS THAT HER TITTY?!?!?!??!?!?"

HEY, if women want to throw out their titties, then OK!
Actually it's a very natural thing, but a towel or blanket should be used to cover her.
