You missed an inside SF joke. Unfortunately, I can not discuss it at this time.
You really are not doing your business any favors by posting on here.

Fantastic thread!! As a former pizza slinger, I have heard some awesome horror stories (such as the teenage girls pizza party, where they wanted to pay for ten pies in marijuana!) I have never had much drama myself... I guess I am lucky.... Thanks for the chuckles y'all!!

Your stories suck and only show you to be an asshole. If you hate it so much, you should get out of customer service. Go stamp some steel or something.

I was an extra during the winter for a big local sports store.

And the amount of stupidity i saw was insane. I don't know why but people always think they know way better then me, because I'm young (19) and that "they have been skiing longer then me" (I highly doubt that, in actual days I porbaly win by miles.
I also was the only employee in the sports store actually knowing anything about skiing.



1.) A woman came in, she said she wanted new ski boots I was busy tuning a ski so I said: 4 minutes, and I will help you.
When I finished tuning the ski I went towards here and I couldn't believe my eyes.
She had pulled the liners out of an huge men's racing boot and attempted to put her foot in with shoes and all. I asked her: why haven't you taken of your shoes?
She responded: I know what I'm doing kid, I have far more ski experience then you will ever have.
I told her she would be better of getting woman's boots in a proper size and wear them without shoes. She became furious and said that I was retarded and knew nothing about skiing and she demanded another employee.
I gave in, and that guy actually sold her the boots.
When I asked if we should tune her skis to fit with the boots for free she said: my man is a carpenter, he can do that better then you...


2.) I had this rich guy coming in with this spoiled kid, after 5 Hours!!! I managed to sell the kid a perfectly appropriate outfit consisting of a skijacket, skipants, helmet, goggles, gloves, pully's, underwear, boots, skis, poles, ski/bootbag and bindings.
I tuned the bindings and the dad and this kid were all happy and left the store.
15min. later the guy returned and said he wanted to return everything because it didn't fit in his car...

Seriously...maybe think about what car you bring when you are going to buy skis?


3.) I had this guy coming in claiming he was the best freeskier in my country (yeah right) and he kept on bragging and lying the entire time, about how he did double backflips for fun, and that he once did a triple backflip.
I sold him a new coat. Four days later I see him at an local indoor hill. I greeted him and asked if he liked his jacket. He said yes in a very nervous way. When he went down the hill he fell after 5m of pizza point. I could only laugh.

Should have told him you'll hold his items until he comes back (although he was probably looking for an excuse not to buy it...maybe not really rich?)

That's an example of a rarely mastered half front flip.

I tried too convince him but he insisted on returning the goods.

And it was a Ferrari 350, so he probaly had some money.

Yeah, but many rich people are notoriously stingy. How do you think they accumulated their wealth? They only buy fancy cars and bags as status symbols. Stuff like ski gear aren't as identifiable. Besides, Ferrari cars and Hermes bags can be sold later for a decent retained value.

Good evening gents. Recently found this forum & lurk here quite often. This thread alone made me register to tell my favorite Tale of Retail.

During my college years, I worked at Sears (yes that sh*t hole) as extra help during the Christmas season. While working in the men's department, an acquaintance, I'll call him "Alex," came into the store on a Friday around 1pm. Alex explained he was getting married later in the evening and needed something nice to wear.

Alex was wearing a white undershirt with Pozole stains on it. He was also wearing some faded Anchor Blue jeans and some beat up high tops. He also looked to be pretty inebriated and confirmed he had drunk a milk jug full of beer on the way to the mall. He confirmed his family had prepared Pozole in the morning to celebrate the wedding later in the evening.

I asked Alex what he was looking for specifically and he said "Something like this" pointing to some Dockers and some packaged OCBDs. I asked him if he knew his sizes; he responding by asking me what size I wore, assuming that I was more a more portly individual than him (I am 6'3" and weighed about 250 lbs at the time; Alex was about 5'10" and easily 300-315). I told him I was a 38/32 in pants and he blurted out "Then I must be a 36." He picked a pair of Dockers and a shirt and he was off to the dressing room.

Well, he tried pant size after pant size until finally finding a pair of pleated navy blue Dockers in size 44/32. He also tried on different shirts in this method, starting at size 17.5 and sizing up until eventually finding a white 20 34/35 that he could button up without choking himself. Alex came out of the dressing room wearing the Dockers, the shirt un-tucked, cuffs unbuttoned, and shoeless (now exposing his dingy white sweat socks). Alex asked me how he looked and had a smug look on his face, feeling like a million bucks...however, a concerned look came across his face and he said he had to go to the bathroom! He walked out of the men's department like a man on a mission before I could stop him. By this point, I had already been helping the gent for about 45 minutes.

Well, I waited for approximately 15 minutes & Alex did not return. At this point, it was entirely safe to assume that Alex was taking a dump wearing the merchandise & quite possibly his wedding attire. I was told by my superior to go to lunch and did so. I returned a half hour later to find my female coworker, in disgust, folding up the aftermath that Alex had left. She showed me the collars of the shirts Alex had abandoned in the dressing room. The guy left fresh ring around the collar of every shirt he tried on! She also told me Alex said he would come back as he was going to check out the prices at JC Penney and Mervyns (peeps in California might know what this is) in the mall before committing to buying at Sears. FML.
