Something Awful recently posted the highlights of a thread they had where all the forum members traded their stories of seeing bad customers, both when they were employees and when they were other customers in the same store. It was hilarious, so I had to steal their idea. Well, anyway, it seems that some people, when they go to a store, leave their civility in the car. Otherwise normal people turn into total jerks...and idiots. Unless you're really lucky or live under a rock, you have probably seen them, and if you've ever worked one of those boring, unskilled labor jobs, you've probably had to deal with at least one of them. So anyway, share it here, but nothing depressing. This is supposed to be a FUNNY thread. I'll start off. I've seen some wierd things in my day working at a grocery store. I've seen people get personally mad at us because you can't buy liquor on a Sunday in Georgia. I've seen somebody using his finger to take samples of the different mayonnaise jars we have. I've even seen people move items around so they could claim a misstock and get a discount, but nothing beats these two scammers. Scammer number one came in one day when Hellman's "Real" Mayonnaise was on sale. I think it was two for one, but it was a really good price. Well, the stuff was flying off the shelves and we were starting to run out, so she decided to take advantage of it. She claimed she was having a party soon, and needed 120 jars of mayonnaise. Well, we, of course, didn't have that much. Our store has a 'rain check' policy, where if we run out of a sale item, you get a slip of paper saying you get that item at the sale price when we get more in, even if the sale is over. So, we ordered the 120 extra jars, got them all stacked up and ready to go, and she came back in. Yeah, we knew it was a scam, but we had to pretend it wasn't. So, she came in with her rain check and grabbed ONE jar of mayo. She said the party was already over and she just wanted us to mark one off the check. Yeah, that's right. She wanted her next 120 jars to be on sale. The manager said she'd have to either buy 120 or pay full price. She stormed out, missing the even better sale on mayo we had to get rid of the surplus. The second scammer was just an idiot. She wandered back to the meat department, grabbed a $50 ham, and poked a hole in it with a pen. Then she walked up front and claimed that she had driven all the way out from Oakwood the previous day to get a ham, only to find out that it had this hole in it. She wanted her money back. Oakwood, the town she claimed to have driven from, has a grocery store of the same chain (Publix) that's about 4 times the size of ours. This was so obviously a scam that it practically stank, but, once again, we must pretend it isn't until we have solid proof, so she gets her $50. Minutes after she left, the meat manager ran up to try to stop her. The manager saw the act, just not clearly. Anyway, they looked over the tapes (the manager and the girl who gave the refund) and saw the whole thing, so they put out an alert on her to avert future scams. Well, that was pretty dumb, but here's where it gets dumber. She came back into the store the very next day and tried it again. When she came up front, we informed her that the police had been notified. They caught her not 3 blocks from the store. Anyway, those are my stories. Let's hear yours.
