    For whatever reason, some Customers are just plain odd. And the service industry unleashes them on to unsuspecting clerks with often hilarious results. If you like your customers just plain bizarre, then read on!

    No Appointment, No Point

    | New Jersey, USA | Bizarre, School

    Customer: “I would like to cancel my appointment for a tutor at 1:30.”

    Me: “You are not booked for 1:30.”

    Customer: “Oh, okay. Can I make a appointment for 1:30 then?”

    Me: “Didn’t you just say you want to cancel it?”

    Customer: “Don’t I need to have a appointment first to cancel it?”

    Totally Randumb

    | Boston, MA, USA | Bizarre

    Customer: “Okay, so I can’t decide what color I should get. Green, blue, or pink?”

    Me: “Well, I really like the green.”

    Customer: “No, no, never mind, I’ll just flip a coin.”

    (Tries to find a coin in her pocket.)

    Me: “I have a penny, if you’d like it.”

    Customer: “Nah, I’m fine. I’ll just flip the coin in my head.”

    Aisle Be Watching You, Part 2

    | Montana, USA | Bizarre

    Customer: “I’m looking for horseradish.”

    (I take her to the condiment section, where there are seven different kinds of horseradish.)

    Customer: “No, it’s not any of these.”

    Me: “Is it a refrigerated product?”

    Customer: “Oh, I don’t know.”

    Me: “Well, this is the only place I know of where we stock horseradish.”

    (A few moments later, the customer finds me again.)

    Customer: “I know where it is. But I’m not going to tell you. You need to figure it out on you own.”

    Customer: “Yes, but are you an employee at [store]?”

    Another Tragic Hair Disaster

    | North Wales, UK | Bizarre, Family & Kids, School

    (The phone rings five minutes before the end of the school day.)

    Parent: *very distressed* “You’ll have to help me, please help!”

    Me: “What on earth has happened? How can I help?”

    Parent: “It’s an emergency! There’s been a disaster! You have to help me!”

    Me: “Calm down and tell me what has happened. I’ll do my best to help”.

    Parent: “I can’t get there to pick up [name of her child]. It’s an emergency!”

    Me: “Don’t worry about her, I’ll keep an eye on her here at school. She can come home with me if need be. Is there anything else can do? What has happened?”

    Parent: “It’s my hair, it’s turned out orange!”
