    This site is full of Customers; their stupid and moronic exploits that make us laugh. But these gems contained within are for those special cases, the extra stupid, the ones that make you wonder how they have survived this long!

    So Call Me Maybe

    | Phoenix, AZ, USA | Extra Stupid

    Me: “Thank you for calling sales and support! This is [name]; how can I help you?”

    Caller: “Yes, I received this letter telling me to call you.”

    Me: “I’d be happy to help. Can you tell me what the letter states?”

    Caller: “For 24/7 customer service, call [number].”

    Me: “Okay, sir, did you need any assistance with your account?”

    Caller: “No, the account is fine. This letter says to call.”

    Me: “What you read to me indicates that you should call our number should you need customer service. Did you need any help today sir?”

    Caller: “No.”

    Me: “Have a nice day, sir.”

    Ph.Duh, Part 2

    , | Grand Rapids, MI, USA | Extra Stupid, Technology, Top

    (I work at the college IT department. One day, I get a phone call from a professor.)

    Me: “Thank you for calling the help desk. How may we help you?”

    Professor: “My computer is making a beeping sound. I can’t get it to stop. Can you send someone to fix it?”

    Me: “Sure, I’ll be right over.”

    (I arrive at the professor’s office.)

    Professor: “I don’t understand why it is doing this. It has never done this before.”

    (I notice a rather large book on top of his keyboard.)

    Me: “Sir, you can’t leave objects on top of your keyboard. That is what causes the beeping.”

    (I remove the book.)

    Professor: *embarrassed* “Oh.”

    (This professor is the department chair of the Computer Science division of the college. He has a Ph.D in Computer Science.)

    Some People Aren’t Backward Compatible

    | Ohio, USA | Extra Stupid, Technology

    (I work at a public library. Patrons often ask us how to print from the computers.)

    Patron: “I need to pay for my printing.”

    Me: “Okay. When you hit the print button, how much did it say it was going to cost?”

    Patron: “I did not hit the print button.”

    Me: “What computer were you sitting at?”

    Patron: *impatient* “I was not sitting at a computer. I am trying to print from the typewriter!”

    Me: “I’m sorry, I am confused. You were not sitting at a computer, but at the typewriter? And you want to print what you typed?”

    Patron: “This is ridiculous! I cannot believe you won’t help me!” *leaves*

    Self Disservice

    | Arizona, USA | Extra Stupid, Top

    (I am a customer heading for the bathroom at a store. A woman storms out of the lady’s room. It looks like she’s trying hard to keep her hands in the air and not touch anything as she marches up to an employee.)

    Customer: “Do you know how long I’ve been waiting in there!? Why hasn’t anyone come in?”

    Employee: “I’m sorry?”

    Customer: “The sign in there says ‘Employees must wash hands’! I’ve been waiting in there for fifteen minutes for someone to wash my hands!”

    Dumb Without Shadow Of A Doubt

    | Manchester, UK | Extra Stupid, Food & Drink, Top

    (I’m putting the salad on a customer’s sandwich.)

    Customer: “What’s that black thing on there?”

    (I check to see if I’ve put olives on the sandwich by mistake.)

    Me: “What black thing?”

    Customer: “That big black thing right there!”

    (I check again.)

    Me: “Erm, that’s the shadow of my hand.”

    Customer: “I don’t want that. Take it off!”

    Me: *moves hand*

    Customer: “That’s better.”
