DeltaNthCactus 5y I work at an outlet mall, and I had a lady that hardly spoke any english yell and scream at me that it was a Texas State Law that every store must stay open until sunset (it was a Sunday so we closed at 7pm, but since it was summer the sun didnt set until 8:30pm) so she could use the fitting rooms. I replied ma'am, the sun sets later but GAP closes now, the fitting rooms are closed please make your way to the cash register She insisted I call my manager over, who not only hates

JayG420 . 5y I use to work at Vans awhile back as a floor supervisor. I had this older guy come in shopping for his daughter, it was her birthday. We helped him out finding everything he wanted and it ended up being a good sale. But when it came to checking the guy out was a different story. I was listing off the things he picked out. Shoes, jacket ,hat... That's when he stopped me. It's a cap he said. I said ok. I don't want the cap unless you call it a CAP! I just looked at him

 5y i worked at a shoe store in high school. this one woman would come and buy her son a pair of sneakers from time to time. after a few months of the purchase, she would come in with the sneakers & try to exchange them for the next size up. her son had very clearly worn the shoes every single day since she purchased them originally - one time, they even had a hole in them. she basically thought she could buy the shoes once & keep exchanging them when they got too worn or didn't fit him anymore. every

eztrov 5y I used to work at an outdoors store and someone once came in looking for a fully waterproof vest. I asked why he would want such a thing, and he told me I have a very expensive down vest and I need a waterproof vest to cover it so it doesn't get ruined. I tried repeatedly to explain that a rain jacket will do the same job, without getting his head/ neck/arms soaked. Не was insistent that he can only wear a waterproof vest, because what's the point of owning a $750 vest if you're covering it up

lavitaetroppobreve 5y I used to work in the 'body wear' (men's underwear and PJs) department of a high end department store. I'd have men trying to return clearly worn, sometimes stained boxers all the time. Customers were allowed to try on pants before they bought them, and I'd always tell them to try them on over the underwear they were already wearing but most didn't... I had a couple of repeat customers who discreetly asked if I could grab some lingerie/stockings from the women's department for them to try on. Never bothered me - it was a luxury store and I was

Ragnar_Targaryen 5y I worked at a Nike Outlet store for a little while, and primarily worked in the shoe department. We sold shoes ranging from boots to cleats, sandals to running shoes, we sold them all. This one older gentlemen requested a sandal with a strap over the top, sort of like Tevas. I told him that Nike didn't really have any sandals like that, especially at the outlet store. Не proceeded to tell me that I'm wrong and that Nike definitely sold them because he got his current pair at Nike. I took a look at his current pair

CrotchWolf 5y I was working customer service at a JC Penny's outlet store when we had a woman walk in wanting to return some items. When I asked for her receipt, she said she lost it so I thought to try scanning the barcode to see if I could bring up the purchase in our system and that's when I noticed the tags had the store logo on the back.... ....for Hudson's.

 5y I used to work at bath and body works and an old lady who I suspect was partially deaf kept demanding we process a return for soap she purchased. Used Soap... Used BAR Soap.... That she bought from Walmart. How did I know she bought it from Walmart? It had the clearance sticker on it Dove, she had clearance Dove soap that she used, repackaged, and brought into my Bath and Body works to return it. Hoh boy. ... 220

 5y I worked at a Levis and a man came in to try on a plaid shirt that was displayed in the shop window. Не said he had OCD and asked to try on every plaid shirt (probably 50+ shirts) we had in his size because he needed the lines to match up at the seams. I was bored af so I decided to help him instead of focusing on other customers. The sale took about an hour and a half but he bought $400+ worth of clothing and then called our district manager to say how happy he

CakeAndDonuts . 5y Had a mom of a girl on the cusp of big kid vs juniors sizes demand that I give her a pair of adult shoes at a kid price. She's only 11, I shouldn't have to pay full price to put shoes on her feet. When I refused, she tried to force her daughter to wear shoes that were way too small. The poor girl was in tears by the end of it. Newsflash: kids grow. Rapidly. It's your job as a parent to find a way to feed, house, and clothe your child. It's not the

LopsidedPlankton . 5y One time this lady came into the store and starts asking me for different sizes in everything. No problem, we have all the sizes in the back, I'll go get them. She's being a bit excessive, but whatever it means I get to spend time digging around in the storage room. Eventually she comes across a sweater she wants to try on and it just so happens that I'm wearing the same sweater at work that day. She asks for a small and I apologize because we are sold out. This lady then looks at me and goes
