    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!

    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.)

    Refunder Blunder, Part 13

    | Chicago, IL, USA | At The Checkout, Extra Stupid, Money

    Customer: “Hi, I want to return this watch.”

    Me: “Sure thing, do you have the receipt?”

    (Customer hands over receipt.)

    Me: *after ringing the return up* “Okay so you’re getting $15 back on your card.”

    Customer: “$15?! No, the price tag says it’s $24.99!”

    Me: “Yes but you used a coupon to pay for it. You only paid $15 so that’s how much you’ll get back.”

    Customer: “No, the price tag says $24.99! I should be getting $24.99 back!”

    Me: *circling her total on the receipt* “Look, right here on the receipt, you used this coupon with your purchase which brought the total down to $15. You did not pay $24.99 so we can’t give you more money back than what you paid. We can only give you back what you gave us.”

    Customer: “Well, that is f****** ridiculous!”

    Me: “I’m sorry, there’s nothing I can do. You can swipe your card whenever you’re ready to get your money put back on it.”

    Customer: *snatches watch back* “Forget it. I’ll just keep it.”

    On A Bandwidth RAM-page

    | Melbourne, VIC, Australia | Extra Stupid, Technology

    (I sell a customer a new connection because they want it ‘to go faster.’)

    Customer: “We’ve had this connection for a few weeks and there’s no difference in speed. You promised me it would be faster.”

    Me: “That’s strange. It should be much faster. Let me have a look at the graphs.”

    (Looking through the graphs I can see they are using way more bandwidth than ever before.)

    Me: “So, looking at these graphs it appears you’re using far more bandwidth than your previous connection. It actually looks like you might be maxing out the connection.”

    Customer: “No, it’s not that. When I click on [Browser] it still loads up very slowly.”

    Me: “Sorry, just to confirm: [Browser] is slow, or do you mean the first webpage you go to?”

    Customer: “[Browser] is slow.”

    Me:“…Umm, that’s your computer, not us…”

    Their Travel Ability Is As Solid As Oak-land

    | CA, USA | Extra Stupid, Transportation

    (I am waiting to board my flight when over the intercom come a couple of announcements, calling a passenger who has gotten off their plane at the wrong airport. The last page comes as:)

    Page: “[Name], please report back to gate [#]. You have gotten off at Oakland, not Orange County. It doesn’t look anything like Orange County.”
