Customer bought some suede renovator, was going to apply it straight away in my shop. I said no way. My shop is very small, and it could poison my fish tank.
So just outside my shop, on the station concourse she did it. Leaving two massive black stains in the concourse, and walked off without a care in the world. I felt it my duty ( to my landlord) to clean it up. Pissed me right off.

We had a woman use her car key to scrape dog muck from her shoes - we still refused to touch them and then gave her some tissue to clean our floor.

 

I shudder at the thought that she might put her keys in her mouth whilst trying to search through her bag...................

I work near a riding school.  It still amazes me that people get shocked when i ask them to go clean the horse **** off the boots before i'll touch them.

Three examples of shit and one example of something that I thought only existed in medieval times. Looks like I was actually lucky with the renovator.

Sounds like I’m quite lucky in that most of my customers will clean their shoes before bringing them in.

But I once had a guy ask for a while you wait. As soon as he took his boot off I nearly gagged at the smell. He then put his foot on the counter to proudly show a blister the size of my fist and the worst fungal infection I’ve ever seen

Oh and another one where a guy came in took his boots off and asked me to clean them, I asked what it was “excrement, I had an accident”
