Customer Types Spotted in the Wildon August 28, 2006 at 8:02 pm
Irving Patrick Freleigh
The Time Bomb.
The person who makes a big feces mess in the restrooms
The Paris Hilton.
The person who calls the store, rattles off a list of things she wants, and instructs us to have it all up and bagged at the service desk so she can come in and pay for it later. Basically she expects us to be her personal shoppers.
The Comparison Shopper, Part Deux.
The person who calls the store, asks us our price on a particular item, asks us to put it on hold for her at the service desk, and then never picks it up, probably because she called other stores asking about the same item and bought it at the store that had it for the lowest price.
The Lonely Old Man.
The old man who comes into the store three or four times a day and tries to make conversation with all the employees because that's basically his entire social life.
The Ritalin Advertisement.
The kid who races around the store riding the display bikes, destroying aisles and endcaps, and screams at mother begging for a candy bar.
The Stinky Guy.
Pretty much self-explanatory
Mr/Ms "I'm too important to wait in line".
The idiot who goes to the service desk to check out with a cart heaping full of clothes, dog food, packs of bottled water, etc. because he/she doesn't feel like waiting in line at the checkouts
The Argument for more Homework in the Public Schools.
The kids (generally middle-school aged) who hang out at the store and do nothing but cause trouble.
The customer who buys a a big-screen TV or other large piece of furniture, then drives up in a small car, or a large-enough van or SUV loaded down with kids, groceries, other purchases, or just random garbage, and expects you to move things around so you can load up their item, or tie down their trunk lid, or tie the large item to the roof.
Mr. Not Ready for Prime Time.
A guy is constantly making jokes and smartass comments and thinks he is hilarious…but very much isn't.
Lace Neil Singer
The Cat Lady.
All stores have one of these. This woman will come in covered in cat hair and will talk about nothing but her cats. If said shop is a food shop, she will spend a fortune on food for her cat and a paltry amount on her own food.
He always talks over you, cuts you off and interrupts you. Whatever you're saying, even if you're just asking him if he needs help.
Always yacking, either on a mobile or to a friend, and ignores you.
They are the most important people in the history of the world and deserve to be treated as such!
Leaves their full trolley next to an empty till, or dumps their full basket on the belt, then wanders off. Will be really angry if they come back to find you serving someone else.
Buys loads of crisps, cakes, chocolate bars and sweets. Will justify her choices by saying, "It's for the kids!" regardless of whether anyone's said anything to her.
Always shouts. Not a nasty person, just a very loud and eardrum shattering person.
