Smile Lines Used at Work (from the old boards)

Does anyone have any lines that are used at work? Not ones customers use but ones you do?

Example #1:
Customer: Sorry I broke the eggs.
Me: You didn't break the eggs, the eggs broke themselves.

Example #2:
Bagger: What do we have here?
Me: Groceries.

Example #3:
Bagger: How would the customer like his/her bags packed?
Me: Very carefully.

Example #4:
Customer: Sorry for the inconvenience.
Me: You didn't cause it, the register did.

I've said the things in examples 2 and 3. I've said things similar to examples 1 and 4.

This was from today:
Customer: What happened in here? (referring to the new store layout)
Me: Katrina's big sister. (Alluding to the hurricane)

Next time I might say "Mt. Rainier" (volcano) or "The Big One" (earthquake)

Customer: Are you free?
Me: No, I'm very expensive actually.

Just about anybody: "Well, that was cheap."
Me: "Yeah, but don't let it get around, okay? I have a rep to maintain..." *shifty eyes*

Customer: You're a gentleman (after me doing something minor\oinconsequential)
Me: There goes my reputation

Customer: You are very pretty/I like your lipstick/You got it goin' on/You'd look better with no clothes on/That's a sexy sweater/Baby got back...and so on...
Me: Thank you. My husband thinks so too.

and they are the ones who act totally offended by my comment, calling me rude. Yeesh.

Wonder how they'd react if you said "Thank you. My girlfriend thinks so too."

Customer: "Where's your printer ink?"
Me:" Right in front of you, beneath the big INK AND TONER sign"

When I worked at Target (which is real big with 3 different levels)
I sometimes got people asking me..."How do I get out of here?"

Me: "I've been asking myself that question for a while now"
