    Unlimited Texts, Limited Intelligence

    | Baltimore, MD, USA | Family & Kids, Technology

    (After purchasing a cell phone a few hours ago, a teenager and her mom return, saying they’re having difficulty.)

    Me: “What seems to be the problem?”

    Customer’s mom: “She’s having problems sending a text message to her dad.”

    Customer: “Yeah, it keeps saying that it doesn’t recognize his phone or something.”

    Me: “Oh, that’s odd. Here, show me.”

    (The customer types a short message along with her dad’s number, and hits send. After a few moments, a message reads ‘Error: Your message was not sent. Address is not a recognized mobile device’.)

    Me: “Oh…are you trying to text it to his home phone?”

    Customer’s mom:“Yes! Why does that matter?”

    Me: “Because only cell phones can receive text messages. It’s not going to work.”

    Customer’s mom:“What? Since when? Well, she’d like a plan that can do that.”

    Me: “I’m sorry ma’am, it’s not up to me. That’s just how phones work.”

    Customer: “But it’s an unlimited texting plan!”

    Try Not To Read Too Much Into It

    | Winchester, UK | Books & Reading, Family & Kids, Funny Names, Holidays, Top

    (A six or seven year old boy comes into the children’s bookstore, his mother trailing behind him.)

    Mother: “Go on then! Ask! She won’t know what you’re talking about and then you can stop wasting my time!”

    Boy: “Hello!”

    Me: “Hello.”

    Boy: “I want a book.”

    Me: “Well you’re in the right place.”

    Boy: “It’s about a boy. Who lives with a caveman. He’s got a funny name beginning with ‘S’.”

    Mother: “There. Now you know there’s no such book.”

    Me: “That wouldn’t be ‘Stig of the Dump’ would it?”

    Boy: *jumping up and down* “Yes yes yes! I told you mummy!”

    Mother: “Don’t contradict me in front of my son!” *starts walking her son out of the shop and still talking to me* “You read too many books!”

    Ordering Meatballs, Talking Baloney

    | Manchester, CT, USA | Family & Kids, Food & Drink

    Customer: “Hi, I would like a sandwich.”

    Me: “Sure, what sandwich would you like?”

    Customer: “I want a hot sandwich.”

    Me: “Okay, do you mean heated or spicy?”

    Customer: “Oh heated, I don’t like spicy. So I will have meatball.”

    Me: “Sure, would that be six-inch or foot-long?”

    Customer: “Uhm…whole please.”

    Me: “Okay, foot-long? What type of bread?”

    Customer: “White.”

    Me: “We don’t have white, but we have Italian.”

    Customer: “Fine, whatever. Oh, and I think my daughter wants a sandwich too.”

    Me: “What type of sandwich does she want?”

    Customer: “How am I supposed to know? She’s not here!”

    Customer: “My vehicle is in great condition!”

    Me: “It’s 14 years old and it costs more to repair your vehicle than it’s worth.”

    Customer: “Well, my son is 14 years old and he’s not falling apart!”

    Not So Mellow Jello

    | Wood Dale, IL, USA | Family & Kids, Underaged

    Me: “That will be $*.** for 3 packs of jello. Will there be anything else for you today?”

    Customer: “No, no thank you. My granddaughter is turning 21!”

    Me: “How nice! Are these for her party?”

    Customer: “She is having a party tonight and asked me to buy her jello so she could have jello shots. I’m so glad she is not drinking and instead just having jello. I must have raised her right!”
