    Category: Extra Stupid

    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!

    Caution: Wet Weather May Be Wet

    | Avondale, AZ, USA | Extra Stupid

    (I work as a cashier at a well-known arts and crafts store. This particular day, it is raining very heavily, which is rare in Arizona.)

    Customer: *walking over to myself and other cashier* “Excuse me, it is wet outside. I almost slipped.”

    Me: “Sorry about that, ma’am. Are you okay?”

    Customer: “Yes, but you need to put a wet floor sign outside so people are aware that it is wet.”

    Coworker: “It’s raining, ma’am. I think people know the ground will be wet.”

    Customer: “No, they won’t! Because I didn’t!” *storms out the store*

    Placebo Me, Part 5

    | Boonville, MO, USA | Extra Stupid, Food & Drink

    (I work as a cocktail waitress and this happenes to be on a rather busy night. The customer has only taken one sip of their beer before handing it back to me.)

    Customer: “This beer is hot! Go get me one that’s cold. I can’t believe you are serving warm beer!”

    Me: “Sir, that beer has been on ice for an hour or two. It still has ice crystals on it. Are you sure it’s warm?”

    Customer: “I can’t believe you think I’m lying!”

    (I apologize and take the beer back to the bar and refill my tray, never switching out said beer because it’s ice cold. I return to the customer and give him the same beer back.)

    Me: “Here you go! Sorry about that. I hope this one is colder.”

    (The customer takes the drink and tries it.)

    Customer: “This is much better! I hope you don’t have any more of those other beers back there. You should put all those in the back of the cooler!”

    (I am ringing up a couple of younger woman when one shows me an item.)

    Customer: “Excuse me?”

    Me: “Yes?”

    Customer: “Do you know if this blends?” *holds up blender*

    Shades Of Stupid

    | New Zealand | Extra Stupid

    (A customer comes in with a DVD player and several DVD movies.)

    Customer: “My DVD player is not working properly. I borrowed some DVDs from a friend, and some of them aren’t playing in color.”

    Me: “Which ones are you having the troubles with?”

    Customer: “These.” *points at a bunch of black and white movies*

    More Than You Bargained For, Part 3

    | Perth, Western Australia, Australia | Extra Stupid

    (The prepaid phones we sell are displayed on a wall, with their price printed next to each phone.)

    Customer: “Hey mate, how much is that phone there?”

    Me: *glancing at pricing card* “One hundred fifty nine dollars.”

    Customer: “Can you do it for one sixty?”

    Me: *speechless*

    Customer: *looks at me expectantly*

    Me: “Sure, why not?”
