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

    Bulk Mail To The Future

    | Scottsdale, AZ, USA | Math & Science, Technology

    Caller: “Hi, I called earlier and spoke with someone about getting a quote? She was supposed to email it to me, but I haven’t seen it yet.”

    Me: “Not a problem, ma’am. How long ago was she supposed to have sent it?”

    Caller: “Maybe ten minutes ago?”

    Me: “Let me check with her. Did you check the spam folder, just in case?”

    Caller: “I’ve never opened that folder. I really don’t think it would be there anyway.”

    Me: “Well, sometimes business emails will automatically go to a spam folder based on their settings. You might want to check anyway.”

    Caller: “That’s ridiculous! It wouldn’t be there. Those emails are from the future!”

    No Brains And The Bees

    | Maryland, USA | Math & Science, Pets & Animals

    Customer: “Excuse me, but do you have anything I can spray on my flowers to keep the bees off them?”

    Me: “You want to keep the bees off your flowers?”

    Customer: “Yes. Do you sell that?”

    Me: “Do you understand how flowers work?”

    Damage Your Self E-Steam

    | New South Wales, Australia | At The Checkout, Math & Science

    (A customer brings in a steamer set.)

    Customer: “This doesn’t work. It’s faulty.”

    Me: “Okay, what seems to be the problem with the item?”

    Customer: “It doesn’t steam the food.”

    Me: “Ok, I’m just going to have to test it, to confirm that it’s faulty.” *I ask my co-worker next to me* “How much water do I put in it?”

    Customer: “You put water in it?”

    Stupidity Comes In Different Wavelengths

    | New England, USA | Extra Stupid, Math & Science

    (I am a lifeguard at my local water park, and we are required to scan pools with our eyes following our hand.)

    Customer: “Hello!”

    Me: “Hi sir, can I help you find something?” *continues scanning*

    Customer: “Yes, I have a question. Are you controlling the waves in this pool with your hand?”

    Indoor Trees Are An Absolute Debarkle

    | Saint Louis, MO, USA | Math & Science

    (I am working in the garden shop. Note that we’re experiencing 60 mph winds.)

    Customer: "You people really have a problem out here!"

    Me: "I’m sorry sir, what seems to be the issue?"

    Customer: "You have trees blowing over all over the place!"

    Me: "I do apologize. We have been trying to contain them, but mother nature is winning."

    Customer: "Screw your mother nature! Just take them inside. It’s where they belong anyway!"
