Jokes Retail Workers Are Tired Of Hearing

List RulesVote up the most unbelievably stale jokes.

Retail workers, often underappreciated and underpaid, are so over one part of their job: the groan-worthy jokes they hear again and again. Customers, you are NOT kings and queens of comedy. Dunces is more like it.

Someone who works for minimum wage while wearing an unflattering company T-shirt does not necessarily appreciate your attempts at dad-joke humor. A hackneyed quip might be better than the rude, illicit, or scary things customers do that require secret retail codes, but still, those who fancy themselves as store comedians should just pay up and save the retail jokes for someone who hasn't heard them before. Which is no one.
