    The Sign Of A Bad Week

    | Winnipeg, MB, Canada | Extra Stupid, Health & Body

    (Two of the three doctors in our clinic are going on vacation for a week in the middle of summer. We have signs up for a month informing people when they will be away and make sure we tell everyone who calls the dates they will be away for. During the time they are away, there is a huge sign on the door stating the walk-in is closed, as well as a huge sign on the desk that we purposely place directly in the way so people will see it. I am also off for the week while my coworker remains at the office to do paperwork. The next week I return:)

    Me: “So, how many people pushed the sign on the desk out of the way to ask you to get in to see the doctor?”

    Coworker: “I lost count after 12.”

    Me: “When did you hit 12?”

    Coworker: *sigh* “Tuesday.”

    Sunday Funday

    | London, England, UK | Extra Stupid, Family & Kids

    Customer: “It’s a Sunday! You all shouldn’t be working; I feel so sorry for you.”

    Me: “I’d rather be home, but the shops stay open so we have to work.”

    Customer:  “Why don’t they just stay closed?”

    Me: “Well if people didn’t shop on Sundays, there would be no need for us to open.”

    Customer: “They should cancel all Sunday shopping so that you can be home with your family.”

    Me: “I’d sure love that! Maybe you should be home with yours, too?”

    Customer: “But my family is here! We’re all shopping together!”

    No ID, No Idea, Part 18

    | MN, USA | Extra Stupid, Money

    (We ask for ID when the credit or debit card purchase is over 15 dollars. This customer’s total is $97.94.)

    Me: “Perfect, red for credit or type in the pin if it’s a debit card.”

    (The customer selects credit.)

    Me: “All right. Can I see your ID, please?”

    Customer: “Why the h*** do you need to see that?”

    Me: “To verify that the card matches the purchaser, sir.”

    Customer: “That’s why credit cards exist,boy! So that I can purchase whatever I want without ID! That’s how the world works son, isn’t it?”

    Me: “Well, sir, how do I know it’s you and not somebody stealing your card?”

    Customer: “Because it’s me! Nobody stole my card, did they?! I’m the one buying this right now with this card!”

    Me: “I would have no idea of knowing that unless I saw your Identification…”

    (He then gave me his ID and was very pleasant for the rest of the transaction. But I guess I learned how the world worked?)

    Buy One, Get One Free a From Thought

    , | Canada | At The Checkout, Extra Stupid, Food & Drink

    (A customer presents me with a buy one get one free for a burger.)

    Customer: “How much would this come to?”

    Me: “That’s [price].”

    Customer: “Okay, and how much would it be if I didn’t use the coupon and only got one burger?”

    Me: *That’s [same price].”

    Customer: “But how come it’s the same price?”

    Doesn’t Understand The Custom Part Of Customer, Part 3

    | TN, USA | Crazy Requests, Extra Stupid, Money

    (I work at a mattress retailer.)

    Customer: “I want to see your [price] queen set.”

    Me: “Okay, right this way.”

    Customer: “Yes, that looks just like the one I bought at [Competitor] for [price $50 higher]. Do you guys have a price match policy?”

    Me: “Yes, if you find the same product cheaper somewhere else we’ll match it.”

    Customer: “Well, then, I want my $50 refund.”

    Me: “Pardon?”

    Customer: “Under your guarantee, you have to refund me my $50!

    Me: “But… didn’t you just say that you got it for $50 higher than our price at [Competitor]?”

    Customer: “Yes!”

    Me: “So, you want us to refund you the $50 despite the fact that our price is lower, and you have never purchased anything from us.”

    Customer: “Yes! How hard is this to understand? That’s what a price match guarantee is!”

    Me: “Uh… I’m sorry ma’am, but I can’t refund you money you never spent, plus the price match only applies if you buy the product from us and then find it cheaper somewhere else.”

    Customer: “Don’t try and confuse me! You have to give me $50. It’s in writing and I’ll sue you for false advertising if you don’t! You’ll be fired!”

    Me: “I’m terribly sorry, ma’am, but what you need to do is go to [Competitor] and enquire about their price match guarantee. If you want to return your product there, I would be happy to sell you this one for [price].”

    Customer: “I can’t believe your lack of customer service! I’m never shopping here again!”

    Me: “Ma’am, you have yet to purchase anything from us in the first place.”

    Customer: “Well, I never!”

    (She stormed out of the store. I have no idea if she got her $50, but good riddance!)
