Working in a camera shop, we get asked some great questions (ermm I ll keep it anon for any customers reading)

"Can I use this camera (slr) without the lens then?"

"Have you got any of those olympic cameras?" (OHH FAST RUNNERS THEM)

Upon helping a customer on removing red eye on self service machine, "wow how did you know what colour eyes they had?"

"I'm not happy with my photos, they're out of focus can you re-do them?, it must have been something you did" hmm don't tempt me

"Can you develop these for me" (holding out battery, umm might have some trouble there)
We get the "can you remove... to reveal..." question asked loads never a dull moment

Woman in W H Smiths "Have you any hardy annuals?

Assistant: "Try the garden shop next door, madam".

(You can tell that this was a long time ago, can't you?)

Woman "No, I mean the Laurel And Hardy Annuals!"

I bought a shirt in Debenham's in Belfast today and asked if there was a problem could I return it to a different shop (meaning the branch in Derry).

"Is it a branch of Debenham's?" he asked...

Years ago I used to work in Mothercare and had to wear a BRIGHT green t-shirt with 'Mothercare' written in huge letters across my back (along with the other 30 or so staff) and whilst on my hands and knees picking stock up off the floor that customers had knocked off hangers etc I would constantly get asked "Excuse me, do you work here?"
The amount of times I felt like saying "No, I just like wearing the staff uniform and coming in at the weekend to pick cr@p off the floor"

Well, 2 year olds and hormonal pregnant women are a force to be reckoned with, I bet you had your work cut out.

A guy goes into Jessops and asks to see a particular DSLR.

The assistant obligingly brings out the model from under the counter.

The customer looks at it for a few moments and then remarks, somewhat surprisedly, "It's very small, isn't it?"

"Well, Sir" replied the assistant "it's been reduced".

a couple of months ago I was in the middle of decorating and went into tescos looking greasy and dirty wearing a -was it neds atomic dustbin? tshirt, looking for one of those plastic boxes to haul all the other half's junk into so I could keep my Important Objects within easy access on the shelves. It's the only time I have ever been approached twice in 5 minutes by shoppers thinking I was a tesco's employee. Scary.
