    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!

    Threat Of A Roverdose

    | Canada | Extra Stupid, Math & Science, Pets & Animals

    (I work in a vet clinic. One of my coworkers answers a call from a customer we had a few days earlier.)

    Customer: “Yes. I’m calling to complain about the service I received the other day.”

    Coworker: “I’m sorry to hear that. What seems to be the problem?”

    Customer: “Four days ago I came over because my dog had parasites. The veterinarian gave me a prescription that says: Give 15 cc once daily for three days. But I don’t know what cc are.”

    Coworker: “I’m sorry about the confusion. CC and milliliters are actually the same. If you look closely on the syringe we gave you, you can see that both cc and ml are written on it, next to the number.”

    Customer: “Well, I’ve studied pharmacology and I’ve never heard of cc’s so you shouldn’t put it. Also. how am I supposed to give 15 cc to my dog if you only gave me a 5 ml syringe?”

    Coworker: “As I’ve told you, the syringe is graduated in both cc and ml. We give smaller syringe because it makes the medication easier to give. To give 15 cc, you have to give three syringe of 5 cc.”

    Customer: “But I only have one syringe, and I don’t know what cc are!”

    Coworker: “So what have you been giving your dog for the past few days?”

    Customer: “Well, since your prescription was so unclear, I’ve been giving him one full syringe per day.”

    Coworker: “So… you didn’t understand the prescription we gave you, and instead of calling us right away for us to clarify everything you decided to just give him a random amount? And you say you’ve studied in pharmacology?!”

    Customer: “Yes, because your instruction were unclear. You really have to tell your vets that their service is severely lacking!”

    Coworker: “All right… I’ll give them the message.”

    Irredeemable Ignorance

    | VA, USA | Extra Stupid, Geography

    Customer #1: “Where are you from?”

    Me: “Chile.”

    Customer #1:  ”Oh, really? I love your statue!” *spreads his arms cross-like*

    Me: *smiling*

    Customer #2: “That’s in Rio.”

    Customer #1: “Well, close enough.”

    Electing Key Information

    , | Tempe, AZ, USA | Extra Stupid, Politics

    (I’m volunteering to make phone calls on Election Day for a political campaign.)

    Me: “Hello. This is [My Name) with [Campaign]. I’m calling to make sure—”

    Voter: “Why the h*** do you call people like this?! I’m sick of it.”

    Me: “Well, I’m sorry, sir. I just want to—”

    Voter: “Seriously, don’t you think people are smart enough to do their own research? Everyone knows there is an election going on! There is no reason to bother people like this!”

    Me: “Again, I’m sorry to bother you, sir. I just wanted to make sure you had a chance to vote today.”

    Voter: “Wait… the election is today?! Thank you!”

    Second Life, Same Bigotry

    | USA | Bigotry, Extra Stupid, Technology

    (I create products for several virtual worlds. Please note that I’m male and so is my primary character. I also have a female character logged in for doing testing when I get a message from a customer.)

    Customer: “I’m having problems with one of your products.”

    Me: Can you describe the problem?”

    Customer: “Well, I really need you to see. Can you come?”

    Me: “Well, I have a screen full of programming and building, but I have a friend who I’m sure can help.”

    Customer: “Okay, that will be fine.”

    (I send my female character and never let on that it’s actually me. The problem gets resolved quickly and I bring my female character home. The customer messages me again.)

    Customer: “YOU SENT A WOMAN!”

    Me: “What?”

    Customer: “Why did you send a woman?”

    Me: “Well, did you two resolve the problem?”

    Customer: “Yes, BUT IT WAS A WOMAN!”

    (Punch-line? The customer was female, too!)

    Put Them In The Hot Seat

    | AL, USA | Extra Stupid, Top, Tourists/Travel, Transportation

    (I always like to follow up after a trip I have booked for a customer. A couple had booked a plane flight to Florida, a small rental car, and a few nights hotel on the beach.)

    Me: “Hi, Mrs. [Name]. This is [My Name] calling from [Travel Agency]. I just wanted to make sure you had a wonderful time on your trip.”

    Wife: “You’ll have to speak with my husband. I’m too upset to speak with you.”

    Husband: “I can’t believe you have the courage to call, after what you did. I’ve dealt with incompetence before, but you are the worst!”

    Me: “I’m so sorry. What happened?”

    Husband: “When I booked the flight, I told you that I wanted an aisle seat, and my wife preferred a window seat. You had us backwards on all four flights!”

    Me: “I’m so sorry. Why didn’t you just swap seats? Or, say something to a flight attendant, who would have told you to just swap seats?”

    Husband: “…” *click*
