    I work as a HCA in a hospital, and as a young male all the elderly ladies seem to love me and frequently flirt with me. I dont mind it though as it's a bit of fun and it seems to cheer them up.

    My favourite so far is:

    Me taking off the blood pressure cuff: "I'll just take this off your arm so it doesn't squeeze you again!"

    Elderly lady: "Oooh, you can squeeze me any time you want!"

    Bless 'em.

    We have a lady that comes in the shop and touches everything. It's a charity shop as well, so it's not one of each item.. it's literally, everything.
    And a man that always comments on our bright orange tshirts and manages to make sexual jokes from them D: we've had the whole exposure/asking for numbers/trying to touch us thing as well :L

    We had a rather enthusiastic customer who kept saying how wonderful everything was. 'Oh what an absolutely wonderful store this is!' 'Oh what wonderful service!' 'Oh how brilliantly wonderful! A receipt!' Then he went around high fiving everyone and calling them wonderful. Odd but still.
    Oh, this one is brilliant! I can just picture it happening. If it happened to me I'd be trying so hard not to laugh...

    The first one in the OP doesn't sound funny, though.

    I've had a few old ladies who have been very funny, friends taking the piss out of each other. I'd actually say that old ladies can be hilarious sometimes, and often make the funniest comments. You can get some very annoying ones too, of course, but then you get annoying ones from all age demographics.

    One of my sisters (FormerlyFrisbeeFan) had a funny one once too, though not because they were being witty or anything. She was serving a very overweight and not very attractive-looking pensioner when this woman said to her "I've been accepted onto 'Britain's Got Talent'"! FFF responded something like "Oh that's lovely, what is your performance?" ...... "Oh, it's for singing like a dog!"

    Unfortunately, more often my customers thought they were being funny, but weren't at all. Like coming up to my till when nobody else was there, and saying 'oh you looked so lonely there, I thought I'd come and give you something to do'... yes, you're being so original, I've heard that one about 5 times today already...

    I work in care too but we specialise in Dementia Care... the amount of old ladies who confuse me with their husbands..... "come on darling get in". Er no argggggggggggh! Also one of them came up to me earlier today, told me to put my chin up and proceeded to try and kiss me! I was so scared she almost got her care notes around her face in self defence!

    Little do they know i'm gay, bless their cottons!

    Worked in a little convinience shop, and we had some medicines behind the counter, like paracetmol and calpol... man walks in, says 'do you sell laxatives?' we got that question a lot, but we didn't... upon being told this he said 'Oh, well then. I suppose it'll have to be some extra long matches instead...'

    Inspired by the 'Annoying Customers' thread

    I shall begin with two stories to lighten the mood :awesome:

    A couple of male customers today were teasing the girl in work. They kept asking for her number and then saying her cheeky smile means she hasn't got a boyfriend and she should make sure she remembers to put her number in the bag as well. She is 19 they were hitting 50 :mmm:
    Oh and then after that they were asking her about the underwear. So she showed them the underwear and he proceeded to ask her where the 'stash' was. She was incredibly confused so he turned to his mate, opened his pants and pointed at his ****. Saying "yano the stash" :rofl2: And then he turned round to her mid zip up and said "I need an XL, not trying to imply I have a massive ****, just telling you I have." And then walked out :rofl3:


    Although, even better was some customers winding eachother up :awesome:
    A lad trying a coat on and his mates walk in:
    "It doesn't matter how nice that coat is your shoes are so **** they ruin everything." :rofl:
    Then the other lad I work with is basically doubled over in laughter and walks away, so the lads mates are then saying:
    "Look what you have done to the poor lad, he can't even look at you, your **** shoes are knocking him sick."
    Didnt you write about this story in the annoying customers thread??
