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

    Environ-mental

    | Toronto, ON, Canada | At The Checkout, Math & Science

    Me: “Ma’am, would you like a bag to carry any of these items?”

    Customer: “No, I’m an environmentalist. I don’t want to add to destroy our environment.”

    Me: “Ma’am, security for this store requests that everyone at least receive a bag to know that you’ve bought items here.”

    Customer: “You can’t tell me that I have to take a bag and I won’t have it. I refuse to contribute to the garbage problem!”

    Me: “Fine, would you like to keep these hangers that your clothes came with?”

    Customer: “No, just throw them out.”

    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.”
