My best friend is a loss prevention manager at a belk. Yesterday he saw a female shoplifter put a few things in her purse. He stopped her in the store and ask her to remove the earrings form her purse. At that point she took off running out of the store. So he took off running through the parking lot. He takes her down to the ground and she wets herself. So after the cops get there he had to go home and take a shower

Last night I had a guy try to use a 15 or 16 year old, busty Czech foreign exchange student dressed in a skimpy Ed Hardy skirt and high heels to persuade me make an exception on the electronics refund policy in case the girl didn't like the digital camera that they wanted to buy. I had to maintain eye contact with the guy in order to not get distracted while she kept posturing and making eyes at me. I finally had to tell the guy that maybe he should do some more research either here or elsewhere before he commits to purchasing said camera and reiterated that most stores have adopted similar policies regarding consumer electronic merchandise. Then the girl got all pouty but the guy thanked me for my time and they left. Now all the guys at work think I'm gay...

I work at a grocery store and we have these 2 ladies that come in almost everyday of the week. We call them the "cat ladies". From what I've heard they own a ton of cats. So when come in, they leave this terrible, terrible stench all across the store. Kinda like cat piss and shit mixed together with sewage. I have to go up and down the aisle's with Lysol when they leave. I always try to avoid them. But sometimes I get caught turning a corner and there standing right there. It's like getting punched in the face with cat piss! God, they smell so bad, you really have to be there to experience it.

I don't have any murders or horrific stories to elaborate on here, but I did have some interesting customers when I worked at Geek Squad, the most memorable one being the couple times I had customers come in that needed DVDs stuck in the cheapest dvd player we sold ( everytime it was one of those cheap 30 dollar players that break if you look at them). Most of the time it was a pretty routine affair, we'd get out the DVD send the old unit to be scrapped, and get the customer a new one. Well, one day one of the managers walked up to me to let me know that a customer was coming up with a stuck dvd with a big smile on his face. I didn't think much about it and proceeded to help the customer. As I unscrewed the top case of the player the guy starts getting a little antsy, saying the DVD was a rental and he needed to get it out pronto. I told him I understood and finished getting the case off, the manager came back over after right as I was finishing up and told me to stick it on the back service desk and that I needed to not laugh... I was a little surprised, but continued doing what I needed to do. I put the 0player on the back service desk and pulled out the DVD... and there, staring me in the face was two naked women and the title of the DVD: Chasing Mandingo 4. Yeah, the guy needed to get his porn back to the store before he got any late fees... needless to say me and the customer service guys all had to hide in the back and laugh our asses off after that.
There were also more times than I can count where I'd open a laptop on the front counter to see what was wrong with it only to be greeted with a pair of boobs staring me in the face, usually with a group of customers standing right there:-/ I learned quickly to always turn the laptop away from the line before turning it on after a few times.

I used to work as a teller for a bank.
One afternoon this woman kept telling her 6 year old kid to stop interrupting, even though the kid clearly had to pee. So to get back at her mom for ignoring her this kid sits down in one of the lobby chairs... and just pees. A lot. All over the chair. My manager told me to get some paper towels and try to wipe it up. I told her that wasn't part of the job description.
Another time one of my co-workers told a customer she couldn't accept his check drawn off of Bank of Hawaii because "we can't accept foreign currency here". While I tried not to piss my pants laughing, one of the other guys commented "It's a good thing you're pretty, Krista". Her reply: "Aww, thanks!"

alright I am short on time so I will keep this brief....for now.
I have worked a variety of crap retail jobs, from being a manager at Hot Topic and Gamestop, to working overnights in a pharmacy in the ghetto.
a brief list:
I have had attempted robberies, crackheads try to fight me, homeless drunks try to sleep in the store, battered women try to use the store as shelter, heroin needles itn eh dressing room, people fornicating in the dressing room, people try to sell me their daughter for sexual usage for clothes/video games, a woman covered in feces ran through the store, stinkbombs, barefoot cultists, corporate espianage, ICP fans, Warcraft Nerds, and all kinds of joyous angry customers.
will expand later.
Punk rock, Horror movies,Hasbro, and MY SENSE OF HUMOR ruined my life.
Wanted: Vintage Joes, Punk records and G1 Transformers.

When I worked at Lowe's somebody very regularly shit on the men's bathroom floor every Friday. Why? How? These questions still haunt me at night?
Thankfully I didn't have to clean it up, which allowed me to appreciate the finer nuances of the brilliance behind this shittabomber.
