Just read it all the way to the end

ME: "Can I help you sir?"
HIM: "Uh, maybe. I got this phone card and it won't activate."
ME: "Ok. When did you buy it?"
HIM: "Last week."
ME: "OK. Do you have your receipt?"
HIM: "No. I threw it out." Because, you know, it is not like you'll ever need it again.

ME: "OK. Was there an activation code on the receipt?"
HIM: "Uh, I don't think so."
ME: "Are you sure you called and activated it right? Sometimes they give you one code from the card and you have to call and use that code to add minutes."
HIM: "Naw man, my phone ain't like that." For the life of me, I can't understand why so many idiots have such a difficult time with prepaid phone cards.

ME: "OK. You don't have your receipt. We can't take it back without a receipt. How did you pay for it? If you paid with a credit card we might be able to look it up."
HIM: "I might have paid with my debit card."
ME: "OK. Did you buy it at this Wal-Mart?"
HIM: "Naw."

ME: "OK. Which store did you buy it at?" Because we can't look up other store's receipts.
HIM: "Kmart."

With Kali as my witness ... better filters for the gene pool ... I'm taking up a collection.

I had to read this twice and I still can't stop a) laughing and b) wondering if this man should head to Kmart and look for the brain he lost in the process.

Scott said...

I'm willing to donate a few cases of that chlorine!!

If I'd have been the one Behind the Counter, at that point I'd have gone wubba-wubba-wubba!

Maaaaan. Some people Just Don't Get It, do they?

I just had someone try to find her library card number by looking at her driver's license. Can we please screen the gene pool for that as well?

Oh man, I just discovered this blog, very nice.

My Mom has worked the return desk at Target as a part time gig for 26 years....26! She could go on for days about this stuff.

My 2 recent faves were a person who tried to 2 bags of melted ice cubes because "we didn't end up needing them" and the woman who shattered the mirror she just bought when putting it in her car and then she asked my Mom for a refund without bringing any piece of it in. "Just trust me," she told my Mom, "It is in my car and it is broken. I have the receipt."

Breathing, eating, procreating.

That is absolutely ALL some people are truly capable of, such as this stellar example of humanity. They are as unto slugs with a charge card, capable of filling their days with naught but subsisting and buying cheap plastic crap.

At least he was being honest!

Someone probably told him Walmart takes back anything purchased anywhere (they do).

You forgot to mention if he was cute or not. I love those little tidbits. :)

This is proof that Darwinism does not work. It is not survival of the fittest. It is survival of the stupidest.

No wonder this guy doesn't know how to use a cell phone. I'm surprised that this guy can even figure out how to use the doorknob to get out of his house.

It could've been worse... he could've been trying to scam you >.<

Why are murders so hard to solve in the white trash ghetto?

Because all the DNA is the same.
