    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!

    Like There’s No Tomorrow

    | Goffstown, NH, USA | Extra Stupid

    (A customer has called to ask if we carry an over the counter soap in our store.)

    Me: “Hello, ma’am? I just checked and we do carry [brand] soap. However, we are all out of stock right now, but we could order some for you and it would come in tomorrow.”

    Customer: “You don’t carry [brand]?”

    Me: “We do carry it. We just don’t have it in right now.”

    Customer: “Well, why not?”

    Me: “Because other customers have purchased it. But we can order some for tomorrow.”

    Customer: “Well, how long will that take?”

    Me: “It’ll come in tomorrow.”

    Customer: “So, how many days will that be?”

    Does Mother Nature Have A Permit

    , | Harpers Ferry, WV, USA | Extra Stupid, Tourists/Travel

    (We are whitewater rafting in West Virginia. While floating between rapids, a girl in her mid-20s from a large city in Virginia, randomly starts asking me questions.)

    Customer: “Man! There are a lot of trees here. Why are there so many trees? Can’t you take some of them out?”

    Me: “Um, okay. Why do we need to take the trees out?”

    Customer: “Well, I thought trees had to be at least 20 feet apart!”

    (It’s obvious she’s a city girl, so I decide to have a little fun.)

    Me: “Oh, well let me explain. You see, over in Virginia, they plowed down the forest, built your parking lot, and then planted a couple trees to try and make it look pretty. Here in West Virginia, the trees naturally grew this way and we decided to leave them because we like oxygen.”

    Customer: “Oh…well, trees are ugly.”

    Signs Our Educational System Is Going South

    | Tel Aviv, Israel | Extra Stupid

    Me: “Thank you, have a nice day.”

    Customer: “That’s an interesting accent. Where are you from?”

    Me: “South Africa.”

    Customer: “Where’s that?”

    Me: “In Africa.”

    Customer: “Where’s Africa?”

    Water Water Everywhere And Not A Drop To Flush

    | UK | Extra Stupid

    (We run a boat which takes 12 people at a time. We have two toilets on board, which is usually enough for no one to have to wait for any period of time.)

    Customer: *flustered and annoyed* “Both toilets are full!”

    Me: “Um, yes.”

    Customer: “But I need to go and both toilets are full!”

    Me: “I’m sorry but there’s nothing I can do.”

    Customer: “I need to go!”

    Me: “What do you want me to do? Drag someone out of there?”

    Customer: *mumbles* “But both toilets are full.”

    Economics Is About Supply and Nevermind

    | Miami, FL, USA | Extra Stupid, Money

    (Our store has a weekly special where if you buy certain item(s), you get a few other items for free. The customer I’m ringing up has two pizzas, which are the items you need to buy for this week’s deal.)

    Me: “By the way, ma’am, since you bought these two pizzas, you can get chicken tenders, popsicles, and a 2 liters soda for free. It’s part of our weekly deal.”

    Customer: “I don’t want them.”

    Me: “Well, they’re free, ma’am.”

    Customer: “I don’t care! I don’t want them!”

    Me: “Well, you could just take them and give them to someone you know.”

    Customer: “Why would I give them anything for free? That’s stupid.”

    Me: “Well, you could charge them for it, I guess. If you sold it for less than we sell it, they’d buy it off of you, I’m sure.”

    Customer: “Nobody would be stupid enough to do that!”

    Me: “What?”

    Customer: “Just shut up and ring me up!”

    (I proceed to ring her up without her free items.)
