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!

A Do-Not-Disturbing Amount Of Stupidity

| SC, USA | Crazy Requests, Extra Stupid, Hotels & Lodging

Guest: “My room is filthy! I demand a free night! This is ridiculous! Give me your corporate number!”

Me: “I’m so sorry, ma’am. Give me your room number and I’ll sort this out!”

Guest: “209.”

Me: “Ma’am, it says you’ve been in this room three days. We have a housekeeper going to your room to clean it today. They’ll be there at 9 am. We have it listed that your room had a do not disturb sign for the last three days. Please remove it from your card slot and your room will be cleaned.”

Guest: “Well how the f*** was I supposed to know they wouldn’t come if that was there? You should tell people that! Poor service! Get to my room NOW and do your job! Idiots!”

Me: “…yes, ma’am.”

(She did this two more times in her two week stay, never once taking the do-not-disturb sign of her door.)

Taxing Faxing, Part 13

| London, England, UK | Extra Stupid, Technology

Customer: “Did you get the order I faxed you over?  I haven’t heard back from you.”

Me: “Yes, I did get it and tried to fax you a pro forma back, but it kept ringing out.”

Customer: “Yeah, I always unplug the fax machine after I send a fax.”

Directionless Wireless

| Sheffield, England, UK | Extra Stupid, Technology

(I work in technical support for an ISP. During a call with a customer the following conversation transpired.)

Customer: “Your router isn’t very good is it? I can only get wireless signal downstairs.”

Me: “Well, it is a very basic router. Is your house fairly old, as in having rather thick walls and ceilings?”

Customer: “That’s right.”

Me: “That would be why. The signal is struggling to get through. You can always look into a more powerful router or a booster, maybe?”

Customer: “But… I don’t understand. I leave the door open so it can get upstairs.”

Following Blind Orders

| Los Angeles, CA, USA | Bizarre, Extra Stupid, Technology

(I work in internal computer support. One afternoon I get a call from an older gentleman.)

Me: “[Company] help desk. How can I help you?”

Caller: “Make the information available. Do it.”

Me: “What information do you need?”

Caller: “Just do it!”

Me: “I’m sorry; I need a little more context here. What are you calling about?”

Caller: “The email said to call you and make the information available so I am calling you!”

Me: “The information about what? What email are you referring to? What is the topic?”

Caller: “I have no idea. I was just following orders!” *hangs up*

Some Stupidity Is A Hard Nut To Crack

| NJ, USA | Extra Stupid, Food & Drink

(After serving a very difficult table, I am happy they are on dessert and leaving soon. As I go up to hand them the check:)

Customer: *as she literally spits out the mouthful* “Oh, my God, are there nuts in here?! I can’t eat nuts! They will break my teeth!”

Me: “Yes, ma’am, you ordered NUTS OVER CARAMEL ice cream.”

Customer: “I just thought that was the name of it. Why are there nuts in it?!”
