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

    Somebody’s Not Listening

    | Provo, UT, USA | Health & Body, Math & Science

    (I am leaving the small, medical clinic where I work in the laboratory. A couple enter the doors looking lost.)

    Me: “Can I help you?”

    Woman: “We’re trying to find the, ‘er-ology’ clinic?”

    Me: “Ah urology. That’s on the second floor so if you go up the elevator-”

    Man: *interrupting* “Wait, wait! There it is right there!” (He points to a door that says ‘Ear, Nose and Throat’.)

    Me: “Well, actually that’s the door for Ear, Nose–”

    Man: *interrupting again* “Yeah! Ears. Like Ear-ology!”

    The Union Of Soviet Solar Systems

    | Long Island, NY, USA | Language & Words, Math & Science

    Customer: “Excuse me, does this planet mobile include Pluto?”

    Me: “Well, there’s only eight planets on the mobile. So no, it does not.”

    Customer: “I refuse to accept that Pluto is not a planet anymore. I don’t care what the socialists say!”

    When Matter Doesn’t Matter

    | Los Angeles, CA, USA | Math & Science

    Customer: “Excuse me, do you have Gatorade?”

    Me: “No, but we do have Powerade.”

    Customer: “Does it have electrons in it?”

    Me: “No, do you mean electrolytes?”

    Customer: “No, electrons.”

    Me: “I hope so.”

    His Repair Method Doesn’t Hold Water

    | USA | Extra Stupid, Math & Science, Technology, Top

    (A customer brings his laptop in to be fixed.)

    Customer: “It won’t turn on.”

    (I plug it in, and press the power button, doesn’t work. I flip it over to make sure the battery is locked into place and see rust/corrosion all over the battery.)

    Me: “Whoa! We can’t fix this. It isn’t safe. What happened to it?”

    Customer: “It got hot, so I put water on it.”

    The Sun Is Such A Slacker Sometimes, Part 2

    | Green Bay, WI, USA | Math & Science

    ( I work near to a city park where a lot of events like fairs or public concerts are held.)

    Me: “Thank you for calling, how may I help you?”

    Caller: “You will be shooting off fireworks tonight, right?”

    Me: “We won’t be, but yes, the city is setting off fireworks.”

    Caller: “When is that going to happen? When have you scheduled it?”

    Me:  “We aren’t scheduling it, but my guess is the city will be shooting them off at around sunset.”

    Caller:  “Well, when is that going to happen?”

    Me: “I don’t know ma’am.Wwe aren’t in charge of that. Perhaps you want to try calling the park and rec department?”

    Caller: “How can you not know when you scheduled the sun to set?”
