    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!

    Don’t Call About Not Calling

    | Scotland, UK | Bizarre

    (I am manning the phone line on a particularly busy night.)

    Me: “Hello, how can I help you?”

    Customer: “Yeah, I got this letter from you which says I don’t need to contact you again unless I have any questions.”

    Me: “Okay.”

    (The pause goes on for an uncomfortably long time while I wait for the customer to continue. Eventually, I crack.)

    Me: “Was there anything you’d like to go over?”

    Customer: “No, that’s okay.”

    (Another uncomfortably long silence.)

    Me: “Then, thanks very much for calling.”

    Customer: “No problem. Bye!” *hangs up*

    Forever Seeing Conspiracies

    | Arvada, CO, USA | Bizarre

    (I work at the customer service desk of a grocery store. A small old woman approaches the desk.)

    Me: “Hi, there! What can I do for you today?”

    Customer: “I need some stamps.”

    Me: “Would you like a book of 20 or a different amount?”

    Customer: “A book.”

    (I pull out the book of stamps and lay them in front of her as I ring in the order.)

    Customer: “Are those the forever stamps?”

    Me: “All we carry are the forever stamps.”

    Customer: “This design was created to support Al Qaeda!”

    (I look at the stamps, and what do I see? An American flag with Lady Liberty’s face on them.)

    It’s The Small Victories

    | Montreal, Canada | Bizarre

    (I’ve been working for a quite a while, so my voice is scratchy. Near the end of my shift, an old man comes to the counter.)

    Customer: “Hm. You’re losing your voice there, eh?”

    Me: “Haha. A little bit, I suppose.”

    Customer: “Well, that’s the end of the world for a woman.”

    Me: “Ha ha…” *confused as to where he’s going with this*

    Customer: “HAHAHA, YOU CAN’T YELL AT ME!” *does a victory dance*

    I Think We’ve Found The Grinch

    | Stayton, OR, USA | Bizarre

    (I am a courtesy clerk and volunteered to work on Christmas. While getting the carts from the parking lot, a man who is in his mid-20s is exiting to the store.)

    Me: “Happy holidays, sir.”

    Customer: *turns his head, flashes an evil grin, laughs maniacally, and continues walking to the car*

    Coworker: “I’m scared for you.”

    Actividad Paranormal

    | Washington, USA | Bizarre

    (An older latino woman comes into the shop speaking rapidly in Spanish.)

    Me: “Can I help you?”

    Customer: *continues to speak rapidly in Spanish*

    Me: “I’m sorry, I don’t speak Spanish, but I can get somebody who can.”

    (I go to the back to get one of the other employees that speaks Spanish. After a few minutes, my coworker comes back shacking his head.)

    Me: “What did the woman want?”

    Coworker: “She’s not right.”

    Me: “What do you mean?”

    Coworker: “She says that we have the spirit of a murdered boy in our basement.”

    Me: “But we don’t have a basement.”

    Coworker: “Exactly.”
