Wage Slave Anecdotes: Stupid Questions from Customers


Working in retail is a great way to see a cross-section of the American population and conduct anthropological research into why we have evolved into such a stupid block of people. The following examples are quotes from customers.

When: Early 2000’s.
Where: Video rental chain store.

1. My business card works as a form of ID, right?

2. Do you get sick a lot from handling all the tapes of people who stay home and watch movies when they’re sick?

3. Are your Christmas movies in the Holiday Headquarters section?

4. You’re a manager? This is the first thing you’ve ever been in charge of, isn’t it?

5. Is it cool to get to watch music videos while you’re working? [During N*Sync.] 

6. Us: “I’m sorry, we don’t carry that title.”
     Them: “So you don’t have it?”

7. Why don’t you sell Cry Baby gum here? Why?

8. Are the movies we just rented [and paid for] any good?

9. What do you mean you can’t find my name in the system? I just rented two years ago in Orlando!

10. Meggity Megs…is that your real name?

11. If I buy this, can I use it?

12. Is it your policy to say hello to everyone who walks in?
