    Doesn’t Understand The Custom Part Of Customer, Part 5

    | VT, USA | Bizarre, Crazy Requests, Extra Stupid

    (I work at a somewhat upscale clothing store. Lately customers have been coming in and refusing to even acknowledge my greeting, let alone let me help them.)

    Me: “Hello, welcome to [Store]. What can I help you find today?”

    Customer: “I’m not telling you what I’m looking for.”

    Me: “Okay. If you need anything let me know.”

    (Customer proceeds to look around for about 20 minutes. I check on her several more times. She lets on that she is looking for something specific to wear to a graduation. She will not tell me what it is.)

    Customer: *leaving* “Well, I guess you just don’t carry cardigans anymore!”

    Me: “Yes, we do! They are right here on this table! What size or color would you like?”

    Customer: “White, medium.”

    Me: “That was pretty fast, right?”

    Customer: “Sorry, I just didn’t want you to try to SELL me anything.”

    Me: “Then why are you shopping?”

    Palm Desert, CA, USA | Extra Stupid, Food & Drink, Funny Names, Language & Words

    (There was a certain drink offered at this coffee shop that was a tangerine juice blend that had been discontinued six months before.)

    Customer: *in drive-thru* “Can I get a tangerine juice blend?”

    Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am, but that was discontinued six months ago. Can I interest you in a blended strawberry lemonade instead?”

    Customer: “No, I wanted something with citrus.” *backs out of drive-thru*

    Me: *to coworker* “…Does she realize the word citrus comes from the Latin word for the word ‘lemon’?”

    | BC, Canada | Extra Stupid, Technology

    Caller: “Hey, I can’t connect to my home wifi when I’m not at home.”

    Me: “Sir, it won’t, as your wifi has a range limitation.”

    Caller: “Well, I was in the mall and I wanted to know what the gas prices are.”

    Me: “Sir, do you have a data plan on your cell?”
