...Not Always Right

I found another gem besides I did a large amount of cackling. Here are my top two favorites:

Be Careful What You Ask For, Part 3
Movie Theater Beaverton, OR, USA
Me: “What can I get for you?”

Customer: “I want a small popcorn, and don’t try to upsell me a medium!”
Me: “Can I interest you in a large then?”
Customer: “I want to speak to your manager.”

How Nicknames Are Born, Part 2
Retail Berkshire County, MA, USA

Customer: “Hey, can you tell me where the rope is? I’ve been looking all over for it, but can’t seem to find it.”

Me: “Oh, yeah it’s just over this way.”
(I lead him to the hardware aisle, and halfway down there’s a big sign that says “Ropes” with a picture of a rope on it.)

Me: “Right down there. There’s actually a sign there that says ‘Ropes’.”
Customer: “You’re a jerk, you know that?!”
Me: *laughs, thinking he’s joking*
Customer: “That was intentional, and I WILL talk to your manager!”
Me: “I apologize–”
Customer: “Anytime you wanna come to my house, you just lemme know, Dingleballs!”

(And from that day forward, my nickname at work was “Dingleballs”.)


  1. Call me dingleballs, but I'm lost. Did this stuff really happen to you....?

  2. hi dear cynthia. :)
    it's a site where people record what happened to them. no one called me dingleballs. i'm pretty sure i would need some surgery before that would happen.
