    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!

    Getting Owned By The Owner, Part 3

    | Milwaukee, WI, USA | Crazy Requests, Extra Stupid, Liars & Scammers

    (I work at a gas station. A construction company has accidentally knocked out our power. After getting the store closed up and the closed signs are posted to the doors, we wait for the power to be restored. A customer parks her car at the gas pumps, walks to the entrance, and pounds on the door.)

    Me: “I’m sorry; we’ve experienced a power outage and we’re closed for a few more hours.”

    Customer: “I need to get gas.”

    Me: I’m sorry, but as I said, we’re closed at the moment. I hate to do it, but I have to send you to the gas station across the street.

    Customer: “Don’t you have a key to the register? Why can’t you take my money and let me get my gas? Everybody else does it manually.”

    Me: “Ma’am, I’m sorry, but you don’t seem to understand. Without electricity, the gas pump won’t work. I wish we could help you, but we can’t right now.”

    Customer: “Well, I know the owner of this store personally. And you can tell him I am very dissatisfied with the service from his employees. He won’t like this at all.”

    Me: *smiling* “Ma’am, he’s actually right here, and you can speak with him yourself.”

    (I step aside, and the owner of the store, who has been listening, walks to the front door.)

    Owner: “I’m sorry, but who are you? The power is out right now and we’re closed!”

    (The owner pulls the door closed, locks it, and walks away from the very embarrassed customer.)

    Having A Light Bulb Moment, Part 3

    , | Grand Canyon, AZ, USA | Extra Stupid, Geography, Themed Giveaway, Tourists/Travel

    (It’s almost dusk at the gift shop I am running at the southern rim of the Grand Canyon. A tourist couple approaches.)

    Woman: “Where is the best spot to watch the Canyon at night?”

    Me: “Well, anywhere along the walkway is good, but the sun’s going down very soon.”

    Man: “Yes, we want to be here when they turn on the lights.”

    Me: “…lights?”

    Woman: “Yes, so we can see it at night.”

    Me: “Umm, the Canyon is over a mile deep at this point, and the northern rim is over a mile across from here. There aren’t any lights in it for nighttime.”

    Man: “Then how do you see it at night?”

    Me: “…basically it’s the big blackness out there.”

    Dumb By Any Metric, Part 2

    , | Nanaimo, BC, Canada | Canada, Extra Stupid, Food & Drink, Themed Giveaway, Tourists/Travel

    (We sell burgers in 1/4 lb and 1/2 lb size. It is part of our job to clarify which burger the customer is ordering. I overhear my coworker’s exchange at the next till.)

    Customer: “I’d like a burger please.”

    Coworker: “Certainly. Would you like the 1/4 lb or 1/2 lb?”

    Customer: “I’m not sure; whichever is bigger.”

    Coworker: “That would be the 1/2 lb.”

    Customer: “Sorry, I’m from the States, and I don’t understand your Canadian measurements!”

    Waiting For That Light Bulb Moment That Never Comes

    | USA | Extra Stupid, Math & Science, Themed Giveaway, Tourists/Travel

    (I work in a call center making camping reservations for several state parks.)

    Me: “Okay, are you looking for an electric or a non-electric site?”

    Customer: “What’s the difference?”

    Me: “Well, one site has electricity for you to hook an RV or a camper up to, and the non-electric has no hookups.”

    Customer: “I don’t understand.”

    Me: “An electric site has electricity. A non-electric site does not.”

    Customer: “I still don’t understand.”

    Me: “Um… an electric site has an outlet for you to plug things into. A non-electric site does not.”

    Customer: “So… what’s the difference again?”

    Me: *sighs* “Are you camping in a tent or an RV?”

    (I end up being on the call for 40 minutes. The customer continues asking me the difference between an electric site, and a non-electric site.)

    Time Lord Of The Ring

    | Kansas City, MO, USA | Extra Stupid, History, Top

    (We often have contests between stores as to who can sell the most items. This week, it is a specific brand of hat. To promote sales, I am wearing one with Muhammad Ali on it. I am also female.)

    Customer: *scoffs* “Why are you wearing Muhammad Ali?”

    Me: “I like him.”

    Customer: “Oh yeah? What did you think about the fight between him and Cassius Clay?”

    Me: “I was pretty impressed, considering that I wasn’t aware that he could bend space and time to fight himself before be changed his name.”

    Customer: “…whatever.”
