    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!

    The Customer Is A Fool, Of This I Am Curtain

    | United Kingdom | Extra Stupid, Home Improvement

    Customer: *holding a pair of curtains* “Excuse me, will these curtains fit in my window?”

    Me: “I’m not sure Sir. Do you have the measurements of the window with you?”

    Customer: *confused* “Measurements? I need to measure the window? How do I do that?”

    (I hand the man a leaflet explaining how to measure windows correctly.)

    Customer: “Oh, okay. I didn’t realise you had to take measurements. I just guessed it was one size fits all.”

    Winner Of The No-Door-Bell Prize

    | Halifax, NS, Canada | Extra Stupid

    Customer: “Why won’t the door open?”

    Me: “It opens like a normal door. It’s not automatic.”

    Customer: “I don’t get it.”

    Me: “Give it a push.”

    (The customer backs up and tries to ‘activate’ the door again.)

    Customer: “It won’t open!”

    They Cry Real Tears Too

    | Keene, NH, USA | Extra Stupid

    (I watch as a customer unfolds every single shirt at a table, holds it up, and then puts it back. She walks to the next table and I begin refolding the shirts.)

    Customer: “Oh, wow!”

    Me: “Is something wrong, ma’am?”

    Customer: “No, nothing. I just didn’t realize they got real people to fold the shirts!”

    Wish You Could White-Out That Last Comment

    | Dayton, OH, USA | Extra Stupid

    (A customer is looking at printer cartridges/)

    Me: “Hi, can I help you find something?”

    Customer: “Yeah, I need a black and white ink cartridge.”

    Me: *joking* “Well, we’re out of black and white ink. How about black and clear?”

    Customer: “No! I really need the white ink!”

    Misunderstood ‘Total Coverage’

    | Detroit, MI, USA | Extra Stupid

    Me: “Our records show you’ve never had a prescription filled here before, so I’ll need an ID and your insurance.”

    Customer: “Here’s my ID. I don’t have my insurance on me, but it’s through [car insurance company].”

    Me: “Sir, I think that’s your car insurance. Do you have health insurance?”

    Customer: “You mean there’s more than one kind?”
