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 ‘Mocha Chocolate’ Is Just The Cream On Top

| USA | Extra Stupid, Food & Drink, Funny Names

(I am a customer in a small local coffee shop next to a hospital. A woman in scrubs acting important cuts in front of me but being early and a regular I let it slide. She starts to order:)

Customer: “Give me a tall grande skinny chocolate mocha frappe soy latte with cream.”

Barista: “What was that order?”

Customer: “Uh…” *repeats something different*

Barista: “What size; we have small and large.”

Customer: “What about tall grande skinny did you not understand?”

Barista: “So that is a large mocha latte with whipped cream?”

Customer: “No, that’s chocolate mocha!”

Barista: “Chocolate and mocha are the same thing.”

(At this point I laugh and the customer turns and glares at me.)

Customer: “Fine, just make it.”

(The barista does so.)

Barista: “Should I close the lid or are you going to add cream?”

Customer: “Why would you ask that?”

Barista: “I wouldn’t want it to spill.”

Customer: “Just give it to me.”

(She pays and leaves, the barista is just shaking his head. I step up trying not to laugh and hand over my travel cup and cash.)

Me: “What in the world was she actually trying to order?”

Barista: “I don’t even know!”

Needs More Data On Data

| Sydney, NSW, Australia | Extra Stupid, Family & Kids, Technology

Caller: “Why is my mobile bill $900?”

Me: “By the looks of it you’ve gone over your data by about 15GB.”


Me: “Do you use any apps on your phone?”

Caller: “I let my son watch YouTube so he’s quiet.”

Me: “You do realise YouTube uses data?”

Caller: “No one told me that! I don’t want to pay for this bill!”

Put A Freeze On PS3 Returns

| TX, USA | Extra Stupid, Technology

(I’m manning the cash register when a customer comes in with a PS3 box.)

Customer: “Hey, I bought this from you guys new a couple of weeks ago and it’s overheating. Could I get an exchange?”

Me: “Sure! Let me just test it out so I can give our refurb guys an exact account of what happens.”

(I take out the system out of the box to find that it’s pretty cold and a bit damp.)

Me: “Um, sir, is there a reason your PS3 is wet?”

Customer: “Oh yeah. I stuck it in the freezer for a little while to cool it down when it got hot.”

Me: “…You stuck your PS3, an electronic device… in the freezer?”

Customer: “Yeah, because it was hot.”

Me: “I’m sorry, sir, but this system is now water damaged by your own actions. I can’t exchange it.”

Customer: “What?! Why the h*** not?!”

Me: “Even if it was faulty before, because you put in the freezer your warranty is void.”

Customer: “That’s stupid! What the h*** am I supposed to do now?!”

Me: “You could maybe try calling Sony tech support, but they’ll probably just tell you the same thing.”

Customer: “So you’re saying I just spent $200 dollars for nothing! Can’t you do anything?!”

Me: “The only thing I can do is to advise you to NOT put electronics in the freezer. Maybe put a fan on it next time.”

(I smiled sweetly and he glared at me and stormed out with his overheated and frozen PS3.)

Way To Burst Her Bubble

, | PA, USA | Crazy Requests, Extra Stupid

(I work in online customer service. I am on the phone with a customer inquiring about our personalized bubble sets.)

Customer: “So. what do the bubbles look like?”

Me: “Well, we have them in bottles shaped like wands, bells, the champagne bottles, etc.”

Customer: “Yeah, but what are the bubbles shaped like?”

Me: “Ma’am, they’re bubble shaped.”

Customer: “But the website says bell shaped.”

Me: “Yes, that means the bottle is shaped like a bell. The bubbles are bubble shaped.”

Customer: “But I want them shaped like bells.”

Me: “Ma’am, it’s impossible to make the bubbles shaped like bells. They can only be bubble shaped.”

Just Let Me Float This Idea Past You

, | PA, USA | Extra Stupid

(I work in online customer service. A coworker is talking to a customer who is very loud; I could hear her clearly through the headset.)

Customer: “Yeah, so I got my floating candle set, and the personalization is great, but the candles aren’t floating.”

(My coworker is quiet for a moment, and I see she’s got a pained look on her face, like she can’t believe she’s got to say what’s coming next.)

Coworker: “Ma’am, did you add water to the vases?”

Customer: “Oh! You have to add water for them to float?”
