    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!

    Maybe He’s A Werewolf

    | Calgary, AB, Canada | Bizarre

    (I work in a shoe store, men’s department.)

    Me: “Good morning, just let me know if you have any questions today.”

    Customer: “Thank you. I am looking for shoes.”

    Me: “Well, you are in the right store. What kind of shoes?”

    Customer: “Shiny grey.”

    Me: “You mean a silver shoe?”

    Customer: “Exactly! But let’s just call it shiny grey.”

    The Spice Girls Have A Lot To Answer For

    | Toronto, ON, Canada | At The Checkout, Bizarre

    (I work in a very small café and there is a line heading out the door. A customer is ordering when a woman comes in and walks up to the front of the line.)

    Male Coworker: “Miss? There is a line.”

    Customer: “Ever heard of ‘ladies first’?”

    Male Coworker: “I understand that, ma’am, but you are also cutting in front of many other women who have been patiently waiting.”

    Customer: “I am a woman. I have rights! I don’t have to listen to you!”

    Me: “Ma’am, I’m afraid he’s right. You do need to go to the end of the line.”

    Customer: *looking disappointed* “But…but…what about girl power?”

    Stereo-Griping

    | Auckland, New Zealand | Bizarre, Top

    (While stocking items on the shelf I notice a guy sitting by the changing rooms with the bored, “being forced to go shopping with the missus” look on his face.)

    Me: “Girlfriend making you comment on everything in the store?”

    Guy: “Me? No. I’m gay. My friend only just found out and figured we could go shopping together despite my protests.”

    Me: “Sorry bout the mistake, you just had the usual ‘get me out of here’ look.”

    (At this point the girl comes out of the changing room to show off her outfit.)

    Girl: “What do you think?”

    Guy: “I don’t know. It’s good, I guess.”

    Girl: *in a huff* “You’re no good at this! What’s the point in being gay if you don’t like shopping for clothes?!”

    (She storms back into the changing room.)

    Guy: “Jeez, this is worse than having to come out to my parents.”

    Higher Than A Helicopter

    | Massachusetts, USA | Bizarre

    Customer: “I need to make a copy of this key because the police need to use this one in an investigation.”

    Me: “Ma’am, this key is broken clean in half. I don’t think I can copy this.”

    Customer: “Well you see, the police are investigating into the helicopters and I need another key.”

    Me: “The helicopters?”

    Customer: “Yes, yes. They break into my car.” *picking up a flashlight from the checkout counter* “Oh! I wonder if this flashlight is helicopter proof.”

    Me: “Uh…I don’t know to be honest.”

    Customer: “Well. The helicopters always make things stop working suddenly.”

    (She clicks the flashlight on and off until suddenly it no longer turns on.)

    Customer: “Ah, there. Not helicopter proof. They’re in my veins, you know.”

    Not The Brightest Bulb In The Box

    | South Carolina, USA | Bizarre, Home Improvement

    Customer: “I would like to return this flashlight.”

    Me: “What’s wrong with it?”

    Customer: “It’s too hard to take apart.”

    Me: “Why did you take it apart?”

    Customer: “I wanted to know if it was easy to take apart.”
