With the never-ending customers and the long shifts, it's easy for things to get real awkward, real fast.

Cba, customer asked to return a camo jacket and I said I couldn't see it and she's reported me 🙂

Maybe you've been caught messing around by a customer.

I tried scaring my coworker but scared a customer instead :/

Or perhaps you made a joke to a customer that fell completely flat.

i accidentally told a customer their total was $17.76 instead of $17.67 i said “sorry.. just thinking about the declaration of independence i guess” and he did not laugh or smile
