      I’m starting this thread in celebration of my first day of work… in a comic shop!

      5LYzTBVoS196gvYvw3zjwCFREg-MpYFjd8vs2SA988Q

      Enjoy these (hopefully) funny stories, and please share any funny work stories you have :3

       

      Customre n. 1: Dad looking for manga recs to read with son

      Dad: I’m lookin for something to read with my son, something similar to Dragon Ball, but not One Piece

      Me: Maybe he’ll like Naruto…

      Dad: Is it suitable for a kid his age? (points at 5 year old)

      My brain remembering what episode of Naruto i’ve just watched

      5LYzTBVoS196gvYvw3zjwONyAknEftlixDyZWMPJuyY

      Me: (stutters) yeah… it should be fine

      Dad: You don’t seem so sure (worried)

      Me: (shrugs) I watched it as a kid

       

      Customer n. 2: Girl in crutches

      Girl: (has Girls Last Tour vol. 6 in hand) Do you have the first 5 volumes of this?

      Me: I’ll check, lemme see who publishes it, i’m new … it’s your lucky day, we got all af ’em

      Girl: Thanks (tries to manuver around crutches to carry manga)

      Me: I can help carry them if you wanna look around somemore

      Girl: No it’s ok, i’ll just put them in my backpack

      Me: No, it’s fine, i’ll help (DO YOU TAKE ME FOR AN IDIOT?!!)

       

      Customer n. 3: I’m looking for lgbt manga recs

      My total BL experience:
      Nakamura-kun
      Given
      No.6
      One crappy 90s OVA

      Me: (Tries to sound knowledgeble) Do you prefere something more comedic or romantic? (please say comedic, please say comedic)

      C3: I like finny stuff

      Me: (i’m saved) How about Nakamura-kun?

       

      Customer n. 4: That is not for kids!

      What’s better than a nice trip to the comic shop with your kids? These nice parents who actually let their kids buy something (seriously the amount of a-hole parents who dragged their kids there buying stacks of manga for themselves and not even letting their kids get a miserly pack of pokemon cards) might think otherwise after this trip

      Kid: Mommy daddy, can i get this one?

      Holds up a manga that’s:
      Plastic wrapped
      Has big volumptious anime tiddies on cover
      And character wearing lengerie 5 sizes too small

      That my dear Watson, is a Hentai

      Mom: (rippes the manga out of kid’s hands in a panic) N-no darling, this one is not for kids

      The dreadded look on the parents face as they await the inevitable “Whyyyyyy?”

        Humor aside, this in itself is super cool!

            In a machine shop setting, occasionally one has to rig up something that’s sketchy and just see how it runs. That’s when us guys sneak up on the guy that set it up and whack a table with a hammer. Nothing like watching a grown man nearly ruin his britches.
