    Everyone needs basic math and science skills to survive. However, these customers were definitely sleeping their way through class!

    A Customer You Would Prefer To Circumnavigate Around

    | Durham, NC, USA | Food & Drink, Math & Science

    (An employee calls me over to deal with someone who is angry that they can’t take their restaurant leftovers into the theater.)

    Customer: “Why can’t I bring this in? I’m not going to eat it or anything!”

    Me: “I’m sure you wouldn’t, but unfortunately it is a rule here that you can’t bring it in, and I can’t circumvent it.”

    Customer: “What the h*** does geometry have to do with my food?!”

    Customer’s A Real Dodo

    | Fresno, CA, USA | Math & Science, Pets & Animals

    Customer: “Hey, do you guys sell any extinct fish?”

    (I pause to see if she is messing with me, but she is serious.)

    Me: “No, sorry. They are really hard to come by.”

    Intelligence Levels Are Falling

    | Adirondacks, New York, USA | Math & Science

    (It is the peak of foliage in the fall. We’ve just had a few massive rain storms and lost a lot of the leaves that had already changed.)

    Me: “Thank you for calling [lodge], how can I help you?”

    Customer: “We wanted to come up and stay to check out the foliage. About how far would you say you are from peak?”

    Me: “Well, we were probably about a week away, but after recent storms we lost a lot of the leaves.”

    Customer: “About how many would you say you lost?”

    Me:”Um, I would say maybe half?”

    Customer: “Do you think you’ll be getting any more?”

    Build Up Of Hot Air

    | Wellington, New Zealand | Math & Science

    (Our store is mostly outdoors, but it has a small greenhouse where cafe customers often sit and have coffee.)

    Customer: “Excuse me, I would like to sit in the greenhouse. Could you open a vent for me?”

    Me: “Actually, when it’s windy like today it rattles a lot when the doors are open, so you might be more comfortable with them closed.”

    Customer: “But we can’t sit in there without ventilation. What about the greenhouse gas?!”

    Me: “Sorry?”

    Customer: “Greenhouse gas! Like global warming! You can’t let people sit in there if you’re letting the greenhouse gas build up!”

    Must Have Lymphed Their Way Through Biology

    | St. John's, NL, Canada | Math & Science, Pets & Animals

    Me: “Okay, well I’d like to do some tests on your cat.”

    Client: “Which kind of tests, how does that work?”

    Me: “I’d like to do some blood-work. We take it just like a doctor would take human blood.”

    Client: “Cats have blood?!”
