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!

No Rush, Go Break A Leg!

| PA, USA | Extra Stupid, Health & Body

(My mom’s friend is a receptionist at a small medical clinic. When you call them, there is a message instructing you to call 911 or go to the emergency room immediately if this is an emergency, a fact which is greatly emphasized since some people tend to ignore that, followed by about two minutes of information in the event that it isn’t. My mom’s friend is talking to a patient when the phone rings and she can’t answer immediately.)

Friend: *into the phone* “Hello, please hold for a moment.”

Caller: “Okay, take your time. It’s not an emergency.”

(Five minutes later, she finally finishes talking and picks the phone back up.)

Friend: “[Medical Clinic], how may I help you?”

Caller: “So, my son just got hit by a car while crossing the street. He’s not dead, but he’s lying on the ground bleeding and I think his leg is broken. What do you think I should do?”

A One-Sided Argument

| USA | At The Checkout, Criminal/Illegal, Extra Stupid, Money

Me: “Your total is $15.50.”

Customer: “Here you go.” *hands me a $50 bill*

Me: “Uh… I’m sorry, sir. I can’t accept this. Do you have another form of payment?”

Customer: “What? Why not?!”

Me: “It’s fake.”

Customer: “No it’s not!”

Me: “It’s only printed on one side…”

Customer: “That’s how they make them now!”

Me: *buzzing security* “Sir, I can assure you that is not at all how ‘they’ make $50 bills.”

Customer: “Do your pen thing! Watch. When it shows up real, you’ll feel stupid.”

Me: *facepalm* “Sure, let’s try the counterfeit pen.” *I make a mark on the fake bill and it turns black* “See? You printed it out on computer paper.”


(The customer was soon picked up by security who held him until the police showed up. I don’t know what happened to him after that.)

There Is No App For Stupidity

| FL, USA | Extra Stupid, Technology

(I am showing a gentleman where our screen protectors are for iPads.)

Me: “Here is where we have all our screen protectors. Now to make sure we get the right one do you know which iPad you have?”

Customer: “Apple.”

Me: “That is the manufacturer, but do you know which model it is? The iPad I,II?, the mini?”

Customer: “Um, Apple?”

Doctor’s Disorders

| ID, USA | Extra Stupid, Family & Kids, Health & Body

Me: “Thank you for calling pediatrics, how can I help you?”

Caller: “Hi, yeah, I saw my doctor today and she recommended I use lotrimin on my daughter’s yeast infection diaper rash but I’m at the store and the bottle says not to use on children under two except under the advice of a doctor. So I’m not sure what to do now…”

Forgot What Day It Was

| OH, USA | Extra Stupid, Holidays

(I’m at a mall with my friends. It’s Memorial Day, and the mall is open for Memorial Day sales. We are waiting in line at a store, right behind a 50-something woman, when this happens:)

Customer: “You shouldn’t be working today! You should be at home, remembering the fallen!”

Cashier: “I didn’t choose to be here. This is my job.”

Customer: *getting angry* “I don’t care! This is an outrage!. You are disrespecting the troops!”

Cashier: “Well, if I wasn’t working here today, you wouldn’t be able to buy this stuff, so I wouldn’t talk like that.”

Customer: *stammering* “But you still aren’t—”

Cashier: “Ma’am, my dad died in combat. I would rather be at home, remembering him, than here, dealing with ungrateful customers like you. You are the reason why I’m here today. So don’t tell me I’m being disrespectful.”

(The woman shut up, paid for her items, and left.)
