My Favorite Customer

After working for awhile in retail, you learn to read certain customers. Will they be a pain in the ass and ask you stupid questions, or will they take you seriously? I can also tell my favorite customers when they walk in. It's the much older rich man and his cute and bubbly young girlfriend who is ready to spend his money - I can spot them from a mile away. She grabs a basket and starts throwing stuff in and he follows like a puppy dog around the store.

Typically, they will ask what's new and fun in the store. Knowing my audience I go straight for the good stuff in the glass case and see what I can sell them. Now, I'm not a douche, so I don't just try to pawn crap off on them. I sell them the good quality products that just happen to be the more expensive ones in the store. So the girl will usually squeal with delight and the guy says ok. They continue to walk around the store handing me box after box, sometimes not even looking at what they are buying. They don't even bother looking at prices, if they like it they get it.

Usually everything that these couples pick out is for the woman, or the both of them to use together. Sometimes, you can get the guy to buy a prostrate toy, but only once in awhile. Things that they will typically buy are loads of lube and condoms, some type of whip or paddle, vibrating cock rings, handcuffs, under the bed restraints, some type of clitoral vibrator or an internal vibrator. They tend to get a little of everything. Lots of times they are making out and touching each other the whole time, sometimes it's not so pretty.

When they are done it takes about ten minutes to ring them up. Battery testing all the toys, explaining how to clean and take care of them. My favorite part is the total, hehe. Typically they will spend anywhere from $400 to $1,000. And since I do get commission this makes me very happy. I can't wait for the day when I can walk into a sex store and buy whatever the hell I want without worrying about price. But at the rate that I'm going, I'll already own a whole bunch of toys that I won't need much.
