    Customer - "You got these in a 11?"
    Me - "Nope, 9 is the last pair"
    Customer - "Let me try that out"
    Me - "[​IMG]"

    Also gotta love the people who pick like 5 shoes out and we dont have thier size in any, so they get mad and ask "Well what DO you have in a 13?"
    I like to pick the ugliest 3 shoes to bring out... [​IMG]

    I never worked retail, except when I was like 12 and volunteered at a Xmas tree lot I guess, but retail and fast food are 2 job sectors I plan to try to avoidmy entire life. I know what #@#!$ some people can be, because I have done some stuff that I know if I was on the other side would piss me off, like come to thestore and try some sneaks on and be like, "Yea I like them, I'm gonna get them... I get paid on Friday, I'll be back then," or the sillystories people make up to return things

    Nah that's nothing. Try working at Apple.

    "Okay so my iPod, it doesn't work anymore, completely dead."

    "Hmm, it was locked."



    "So this iMac, how much is it?"

    Clearly the price tag is right next to the !#%%! machine!

    Safe to say I no longer work there...

    retail ftl,

    workin at a hat store can be so damn annoying at times. my attitude is that if the customer is cool with me or approaches me right then ill take care of them,but if there stupid or unreasonable then i just ignore them or if they ask stupid questions they get stupid answers.

    grown adult customers not knowing simple easy fractions, is probably my biggest pet peeve. you got people who think the size order goes like this 7, 7 1/2, 71/4, 7 1/8, 7 3/4, 7 3/8, 8 oh well thats what being a product of the los angeles unified school district does to you

    then you got the people comming in with that, "yall got the t hat, yall got the p hat, yall got the watts hat, yall got the inglewood hat?" then theyget offended when they get a dumb response back like inglewood doesn't have a baseball team, thats a cleveland indians alternate hat, or these aren'tletter hats these are baseball team hats.

    then the random strangers who i never met in my life before who expect me to give them a discount just because, and when im like ok ill hook you up but go getme something to eat from the food court because it works both ways they give me the stone face.

    I worked at Kmart.

    Sales start Sunday, every week a tv would be on sale for like $100 off or about that and a person would come in at like 4 pm and say "do you have the suchand such that's on sale?"
    me: No
    customer: But the sale started today
    Me: True, but the store has been open for 8 hours. How can you not expect a hdtv on sale $100 less still be here 8 hours after the store opens and it is aroundChristmas time mind you.
    Customer: pissed


    when you are working electronics and you are 2 aisles from the counter and a customer yells can I get some help, hello is anyone here doing their job.
    My response if you just walked twenty feet you would have saw I was unloading shelves, putting new shelves in and then reloading the shelves.


    when they ask thirty times if you have something and each time the response is no.


    people getting angry because you don't have any of the sales products on Wednesday. Like it is my fault it is not there.

    My all time favorite is: "Sir...sir do you work here?". [​IMG]

    I guess wearing the store uniform isn't enough for some people.

    lol wow i swear i was about to make a post just like this..

    i work at finishline so you already know, and half the customers are people that barely speak any english, not to be racist but every mexican asks for a size 7or 7.5, if not, they ask for a SEVEN THIRTY. like seriously, working in retail, makes me questions peoples common sense and how they even have money to buy$100 sneakers.

    do you have a size 9 in this? nah...a 11 is the smallest..oh do you have a 9.5?

    or when someone comes in and asks for something really dumb you guys still have the 11s/12s package..2 months later.

    i could go on for dayssssssss about how stupid some people are. makes me question what the worlds gonna be like when im older.

    Working at Toys R Us... horrible people and horrible kids. For the most part, I am OK with kids. After working here I can understand why some kids need thatleash on them [​IMG].

    I have a few stories:
    This lady came to me from customer service asking why she had been overcharged. I look for the right price tag and I look at the receipt. She got charged xx.99for some toy. I look at the price tag on the shelf and it was xx.98. [​IMG] She wasmaking a big deal over a penny. I gave her the price tag to take to customer service and they gave her that penny back. Me and the chick at Customer Servicejust looked at each other and [​IMG] in our mids.

    No offense to my Indian people but damn, you guys have a rep of being cheap. I had this one lady follow me for a good 30 min asking what toys we had that were$7-$9. When she finally settled on one she asked "I need 10 of these" and there were only 2 on the shelf [​IMG]. So I had to spend more time looking up inventory.

    I'll post more later,
