Those that work in Retail, Customer Service, or Restaurant/Food Service - Tell us your stories of stupid or rude customers. (This should be fun, lol.) Well, good morning everyone. Hope you are doing well. :smile: This is a fun thread topic on another message board I'm a part of. I know there's got to be somebody out there with some whopper stories. I don't know if you're familiar with an old HBO show called "Taxicab Confessions", but my job is a lot like that show - you never know who's going to come in, or what they're going to pull. Don't tell precisely, specifically where you work or anything, but I'd love to hear some more stories, lol. Now I work in a convenience store. One night, a week or two ago, this guy and what looked to be a 3rd or 4th grader with him coming in with a fake, possibly altered driver's license that was broken in two. Now, just about any business that sells tobacco also has some version of the We Card signs seen on these monitors. Now I know these guys know I'm not going to sell them anything. Right? Nope, the older boy still asks. /rotflmao Not only does he ask for some Newport shorts, but when I card him, he whips out these two pieces of plastic that creates some amalgamated, jigsaw-puzzle form of a driver's license. And it has none of the state of Texas driver's license security features. The lettering is jet black. On a real Texas DL, the lettering is two-toned - red on the left and blue on the right. No holographic watermark of the word "TEXAS" anywhere to be found. Oh, yeah, and the address on the license was from Duncanville - one of the Dallas-area suburbs - over 60 miles away. I declined the sale. He asked me, "Is it my picture?" I told him that No, his license may be perfectly good but in the state of Texas (and likely everywhere else, for that matter), the law is that accepting an ID is at the cashier's discretion. We have the authority to decline a sale to a potentially underage customer on whatever grounds we deem appropriate for declining the sale. If we suspect them to be underage, we can basically decline the sale just because we can, more or less. And hint-hint >> when you are underage and want to buy cigarettes from a 24-hour convenience store at 2.00am in the morning, and present a fake ID, make sure there isn't, ya' know, a police cruiser out on pump 6, right in front of the store's front door. LMAO! You heard right. Our town's night watchman was out on number 6, gasing up. Did this goober seriously not think that I wasn't going to go out there and tell the officer what happened? Really? I did, the officer goes after him and later comes back and tells me about it. The guy who tried to pass the fake ID? The vehicle had an expired inspection sticker, and he had no insurance, in addition to the crimes of A) attempting to buy tobacco products with an illegitimate ID and B) being an underage person who is attempting to buy tobacco products. :biggrin1: Turns out, they were on their way to see Grandma, who happened to live here. The officer knew where Grandma lived, and escorted them right to the drive way. He told them to park it in the driveway of that house and that they'd better not move the vehicle, or else, they would spend the rest of the weekend in the county slammer.
