Customers and T-Shirts

Working at a gas station, I basically have to make sure I wear plain shirts with no pictures or writing on them. Why? Because every single customer will make a comment about it.

Here's a typical scenario:

Me: Good morning, sir. How can I help you?

Customer: *peering at my t-shirt* Old Navy...what's that? Are you in the military?

Me: Umm, no. It's a t-shirt from a store called Old Navy.

Customer: Well why is there a picture of a tree on it?

Me: I don't know, I just bought it like that.

Customer: *peering again* Old Navy...with a tree. That's weird.

Me: *wishing I was anywhere but here*

Usually I think the male customers 'pretend' to read my t-shirt so that they can take a glance at my boobs. Whatever they are doing, it makes me feel all dirty and violated when they look at my shirt.

So I've learned to wear plain shirts and sweaters, because 9 out of 10 customers will make comments about them.

I should get one made that says something like 'Stop staring at my tits, you pervert" or "Just buy your shit and get out" or "STOP STARING AT ME".

Hmm, I may be on to something here. What else could I get on a t-shirt to get my message across?


  1. I rather like "Just buy your shit and get out" - succinct and to-the-point. :) (Your employer would most likely disagree with me.)

    I read your blog every day. Love love love it!

  2. One of my favorite past times at work is to read my customer's teeshirts. Luckily I have to wear a uniform so I don't get stared at too often-unless they are staring at my nametag because my name is spelled untraditionally.

  3. "Exact change only" that should be good for some laughs, eh? Or you could just get a lab coat type jacket - nondescript and saves wear and tear on your clothes...

  4. How about "My eyes are up there!" written across your boobs with a arrow pointing up!

  5. How about "I reserve the right to punch in the face, anyone asking about my shirt." Then as wise asses will still continue to ask, you can punch the living shit out of them and *they can't sue because you did warn them fairly.

    *Um...that law might only apply in my head though...

  6. How about "A good cashier will not tell you what an idiot you are, a good customer will not say stupid shit about what I'm wearing"

  7. "No chit chat I'm not being paid to talk to you."

  8. LOL I'm loving these shirt ideas! I want them all...=)

    My favorite bumper sticker says: Fuck You, You Fucking Fuck! Put that on a tee and I'm good to go! I also would love to have one that says: Are you naturally this stupid or did you take lessons?

    Or you could just get one in the same vein as that Magritte painting, one that says, "These are not tits". That would make them insane!! xD

  9. My ex used to have one that had "Nosey little fucker, aintcha?" in tiny letters over her left breast.
