Why I can't wait to get out of retail, reason #2343  
Customer: I'd like to pay with this giftcard.
Me: Ma'am, this is a Bed Bath and Beyond card.
Customer: Right.
Me: This is Bath and Body Works.
Customer: Can't I still use it?
Me: No.
Customer: Why not? It's still a giftcard!

...if I could only sell bottles of common sense along with the lotions and soaps...

Trust me, even outside of retail you will deal with idiot customers.
Example from the gun range:
Me: Sir, you can't let your dogs run around in the field, people are shooting there.
Fuckhead: Why not? They were born doing this.
Me: Because people are shooting there. They might get shot by accident.
FH: This is their life, they won't get hit.
Me: Well, that's why they call them accidents.
And my personal favorite:
Dumbo: Oh, I don't need any eye protection, I'm fine.
Me: The county, my boss, that sign with the rules on it, and I all say you do.
Dumbo: But, I can't see as well with them on!
Me: You'll see a lot worse if you get hit in the eye.
