    Stupid customers in stories are bad enough. However, dealing with a customer’s health issues may be hazardous to your own health! Please consult your doctor before continuing.

    Bohemian Medicine

    | NV, USA | Awesome Customers, Bizarre, Health & Body, Musical Mayhem, Top

    (I work as a receptionist in a doctor’s office. There are about 10 people who have been waiting for at least 90 minutes. It’s very quiet. A young man mumbles something. Some people look his way, but other than that no one pays much attention to him. He then starts singing, a little louder…)

    Young Man: “Put a gun against his head…”

    (Some people chuckle.)

    Young Man: “Pulled my trigger…”

    (The young woman sitting across from him joins in.)

    Young Woman: “…now he’s dead.”

    Old Man: “Mama, life had just begun…”

    Young man: “But now I’ve gone and thrown it all awaaaay…”

    All Three: “Mama, oooooooh! Didn’t mean to make you cry!”

    Teenage Girl: “If I’m not back again this time tomorrow…”

    All: “…carry on, carry on, as if nothing really matters!”

    (By now, everyone in the waiting room has joined in.)

    All: “Too late, my time has come! Send shivers down my spine, body’s achin’ all the time!”

    (They finish the refrain just as the doctor calls his next patient. Needless to say, that little impromptu performance really brightened my day!)

    Causing Disorder

    | Toronto, ON, Canada. | Bigotry, Health & Body

    (I have ASD—autism spectrum disorder.)

    Coworker: “What is it like to have ASD?”

    Me: “Well, it’s not that bad really.”

    (Just then, a customer walks into the chain.)

    Me: “Oh, hello, ma’am. What would you like?”

    Customer: “What’s not so bad?”

    Me: “Oh, it’s just that I have ASD. I was being asked what it’s like to live with it.”

    Customer: “What!?”

    Me: “I’m sorry. What did I say?”

    Customer: “YOU PEOPLE SHOULDN’T BE HERE!”

    Me: “Ma’am, I have to work somehow.”

    Customer: “GET OUT! YOU ARE TOO DISABLED TO WORK!”

    Coworker: “Ma’am, she is one of the smartest people I know!”

    Customer: “Bull-s***! You people are stupid! You are in wheelchairs, and drool out of your mouths!”

    (All of a sudden the customer GRABS me by my shirt, and tries to pull me out of the counter. My friend tries to free me.)

    Customer: “GET OUT! GET OUT! YOU’RE KILLING THE MARKET! GET OUT!”

    (After three minutes of useless attempts to free me, my friend calls mall security. The yelling customer is dragged away, and is banned for life.)

    He Came First

    | ACT, Australia | At The Checkout, Health & Body, Rude & Risque

    (Two customers enter at the same time. One is a woman, and the other is a man in his 70s. I get their scripts ready. As the woman is done first, I send her up to the tills while I finish with the man. Since there is another customer at the tills, I end up putting the man through before the woman is served.)

    Woman: “I was here first! How come he is served before me? What does he have that I don’t?

    (The man responds without a second thought.)

    Man: “Raw sex appeal.”

    (If I was allowed to discount scripts, I would have given him his for free.)

    He’ll Be In The Afterlife After The Birth

    | CA, USA | Health & Body, Holidays, Spouses & Partners, Top

    (It is Halloween. The hospital staff have put up decorations, but they’re minimal. I’m trying to wheel a patient who is in labor, to the room she was assigned, along with her husband.)

    Patient’s Husband: “We should put her in the room with the witch hanging over the door.”

    Me: “I’m sorry. That room’s actually a different size. I’m supposed to take you to room 79.”

    Patient’s Husband: “But that room has a ghost. She wants a witch.”

    Me: “The only room we have with that decoration is half the size of this one, and doesn’t have all the same equipment in it. This is the room you paid for.”

    Patient’s Husband: “It has to be a witch. She’s been real nasty all week.”

    (As she hears her husband say this, the wife is looking less and less pleased. She is a week overdue, and has been in for false labor pains the past two weeks.)

    Me: “That’s interesting, but there aren’t any decorations inside the room anyway. What is inside this room is a much wider space for the doctor and nurses to provide her with better care.”

    Patient’s Husband: “She wants a witch, so put her in the room with the witch.”

    (Finally, the patient has had enough and speaks up.)

    Patient: “Shut up. I want to get this kid out in whatever room the people who know what they’re doing think is best, you dumb troll!”

    Bright Red For Other Reasons

    | Glasgow, Scotland, UK | Crazy Requests, Health & Body, Top

    Customer: “Helloooo! I’m at the desk!”

    Me: “Oh, sorry, you just walked in. I was just coming to see to you !”

    Customer: *demanding tone* “I’m wanting go bright red, okay?!”

    Me: “Well, I will take you over first, then we can have a proper consultation.”

    Customer: “Right then!”

    Me: “If you are wanting to go bright red, we would need to strip the colour out because you are jet black.”

    Customer: “Well, I don’t want that; it hurts when it gets stripped! I want bright red now, from the poster! I’m the customer; I’m always right!”

    Me: “Well, I have been doing hairdressing for two years, and to be honest, it doesn’t hurt because it won’t be on your scalp.”

    Customer: “Well, I’m still right. If you put the red on, it will work!”

    Me: “Okay, then.”

    (After I apply the color to keep her happy…)

    Customer: “Where is my f***ing bright red hair?!”

    Me: “I told you it wouldn’t work. As you said, you’re the customer, and you’re always right!”

    (She ended up keeping her mouth shut. Thankfully, she didn’t come back again!)
