    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!

    Emulation Alienation

    | Maryland, USA | Extra Stupid, Technology

    (Note: It takes me ten minutes to determine the caller is actually on a Mac running a Windows emulation program.)

    Me: “Does your mouse have one big button?”

    Customer: “Yes.”

    Me: “So, you are on a Mac? This game is not supported on a Mac. I can’t help you. I’m sorry.”

    Customer: “No, it isn’t. I am running Windows 98.”

    Me: “Look at the side of the computer. Is there a big apple logo on it?”

    Customer: “Of course there is. It’s an Apple computer.”

    Me: “Which means it’s MacOS. This game does not run on that OS.”

    Customer: “But I am in Windows mode.”

    Me: “Are you using SoftWindows to emulate a Windows 98 OS?”

    Customer: “Yes?”

    Me: “We don’t support our titles on that.”

    Customer: “What if I tried changing the drivers?”

    Me: “No, that wouldn’t work sir.”

    Customer: “What if I tried changing other settings?”

    Me: “I’m afraid not. Sir, if you want me to help get it working the system it was designed for I would be happy to do that but I can’t help with emulated Window OS’s on a Mac.”

    Customer: “What if I tried it on my games console?”

    Me: “The Windows version of this game won’t work on a…hang on. Take the disk out of the drive and tell me what color the bottom of it is.”

    Customer: “Black.”

    Me: “This is the console version of the game. Did you try it on your console?”

    Customer: “Yes. I worked fine there.”

    Me: “So, why are you trying to run a console game on a Macintosh with an emulated version of Windows on it?”

    Customer: “I thought it would run faster?”

    Criminal Behavior

    | Calgary, AB, Canada | Criminal/Illegal, Extra Stupid

    (For 11 days each summer Calgary goes a bit crazy with The Stampede. Businesses are decorated in Old West themes, and our bank is no exception. For the occasion we printed up ‘Wanted Dead or Alive’ posters featuring our manager and certain tellers and plastered them around the lobby. A customer walks in, looks at the posters, looks around in alarm at our bank manager and then sidles up to my line.)

    Customer: “Are you alright? I know you can’t talk, but do you want me to call 911?”

    Me: “What’s the problem ma’am?”

    Customer: “Are they holding you hostage?”

    Me: “Who?”

    Customer: “Them!” *gestures at my bank manager*

    Me: Oh, ma’am, they’re not criminals, they’re regular staff. This is Stampede!”

    Customer: “You shouldn’t put up posters like that. It’s like yelling ‘Fire!’ in a movie theater!”

    Wrong Kind Of TV Package

    | California, USA | Extra Stupid, Movies & TV

    (A fairly regular customer, known for asking lots of questions about merchandise he has no intent of buying, wanders in to the electronic department.)

    Customer: “What’s this?”

    Me: “It lets you browse the Internet on your TV instead of requiring a computer.”

    Customer: *excited* “Really? Wow!”

    Me: “Yep, and if you buy the optional keyboard, you can even use it for email.”

    Customer: “Email? I’ve heard a lot about that. What is it, exactly?”

    Me: “Well, it’s kind of like regular mail. You type up a letter and send it off,
    except it gets there instantly and there’s no postage.”

    Customer: “Really? Wow! Does it do packages?”

    Seriously, It’s Just A Joke

    | Orlando, FL, USA | Extra Stupid, Language & Words

    (I am loading guests onto boats at my ride, on which everybody gets wet and all seats are red, when my boss makes a joke over the intercom.)

    Boss: “If you’re in a red seat, you will get wet. The red seats are the wet seats. The blue seats are the dry seats.”

    Guest: “I’d like a blue seat, please.”

    Me: (gesturing at the boat) “All the seats are red.”

    Guest: “But I don’t want to get wet.”

    Me: “This is a water ride. You will get wet.”

    Guest: “Not in a blue seat. He just said.”

    Me: “He was making a joke. See? All the seats are red.”

    Guest: “Okay.” *pause* “Which seats are the dry seats, then?”

    His Repair Method Doesn’t Hold Water

    | USA | Extra Stupid, Math & Science, Technology, Top

    (A customer brings his laptop in to be fixed.)

    Customer: “It won’t turn on.”

    (I plug it in, and press the power button, doesn’t work. I flip it over to make sure the battery is locked into place and see rust/corrosion all over the battery.)

    Me: “Whoa! We can’t fix this. It isn’t safe. What happened to it?”

    Customer: “It got hot, so I put water on it.”
