picture the scene. i am in my work, in the kiosk, which is straight in front of the door as you go in.

customer: can you tell me where the customer service desk is please?
me: yep, sure, just along at the end there, whilst thinking to myself "yep, under that f***n massive sign that says "customer service", you might well find the customer service desk there".

customers are so completely thick sometimes

Dear Mrs. Murray,

While we thank you for your valued custom and use of the Tesco LoyaltyCard , the Manager of our store in Banbury is considering banning you and your family from shopping with us, unless your husband stops his antics. Below is a list of offences over the past few months all verified by our surveillance cameras:

1. June 15: Took 24 boxes of condoms and randomly put them in people's trolleys when they weren't looking.

2. July 2: Set all the alarm clocks in Housewares to go off at 5-minute intervals.

3. July 7: Made a trail of tomato juice on the floor leading to feminine products aisle.

4. July 19: Walked up to an employee and told her in an official tone, "Code 3" in housewares..... and watched what happened.

5. August 14: Moved a 'CAUTION - WET FLOOR' sign to a carpeted area.

6. September 15: Set up a tent in the outdoor clothing department and told shoppers he'd invite them in if they would bring sausages and a Calor gas stove.

7. September 23: When the Deputy Manager asked if she could help him, he began to cry and asked, "Why can't you people just leave me alone?"

8. October 4: Looked right into the security camera; used it as a mirror, picked his nose, and ate it.

9. November 10: While appearing to be choosing kitchen knives in the Housewares aisle asked an assistant if he knew where the anti depressants were.

10. December 3: Darted around the store suspiciously, loudly humming the "Mission Impossible" theme.

11. December 6: In the kitchenware aisle, practised the "Madonna look" using different size funnels.

12. December 18: Hid in a clothing rack and when people browsed, yelled "PICK ME!" "PICK ME!"

13. December 21: When an announcement came over the loud speaker, assumed the foetal position and screamed "NO! NO! It's those voices again."

And; last, but not least:

14. December 23: Went into a fitting room, shut the door, waited a while; then yelled, very loudly, "There is no toilet paper in here."

Yours sincerely,

Charles Brown
Store Manager

Why do I always seem to belong to an uncatered minority?!

Britain needs more small-waist/long-leg trousers!

That's what I was going to ask for, but I didn't want to seem fussy! Not that you do, I'm just glad someone else put it forward!

I've got some fantastic stories like that. One similar to yours would be the 50 people or so in last summers sale that stood beside 10 inch letters saying "THE FITTING ROOMS ARE NOT OPEN TODAY" asking whether they can get in the fitting rooms. rolleyes.gif Oh! And guys that don't realise they're trying on womens clothes! "You do realise those are womens trousers, don't you? It's no wonder they're small on you, they are from the petite section and have the word petite plastered over the hanger and the tags!".

I'm now working a full day tomorrow. sad.gif On the bright side it's very possible I'll find another stupid customer. There's usually one absolute classic a week.

I'm also with the small waist small legs thing. All my jeans are ripped around the bottom because they trail along the ground. sad.gif

If I ever remember who incorrectly informed me that Student Loans are interest free, I'm going to kill them.

Turns out they ain't dry.gif

so, does anyone actually own jeans that fit?!

John

Posted 30 June 2007 - 03:49 PM

I own a variety that fit, don't fit, used to fit, and should fit according to the waist measurement but don't.

Finding the perfect jeans is next to impossible.

Work was crap today.

I am so thick sometimes. I just took my contacts out thinking they were old ones, left them lying on my desk, and just realised that they're actually brand spanking new ones that I just put in this morning.

Stupid stupid stupid.

They didn't happen to be 25 monthly night-and-day ones, did they? Because I could have used them...

I managed to knock mine down the sink, so I'm gonna have to go get replacements. :/

No no, they're just the monthly disposables. I want the ones I can wear at night too, I want to know what it's like to be able to see when I wake up...

I just popped them back in their solution and they appear to be back to normal. Hooray!
