Music Stores, Concerts, Orchestra’s, none are safe from the stupidity of our very wrong customers, examples such as those searching for live recordings of Beethoven himself, to others who believe listening to Taylor Swift means you’re musically talented.

Right State, Wrong Situation

(I volunteer at a theater where a lot of Broadway national tours come through. The show “Jersey Boys” is at the theater for a few weeks. Also, there is a symphony going on at the other theater in the building. I’m taking tickets for Jersey Boys when an elderly patron approaches me.)

Me: “Are you here for the symphony or the musical?”

Patron: “Yeah, uh, Jersey Shore?”

Me: “Do you mean Jersey Boys?”

Patron: “Yeah, that one.”

Supermarket, The Musical

| Gainesville, FL, USA | At The Checkout, Musical Mayhem

(It has been a quiet morning but the store has been filling up and it is very loud. My ears haven’t quite adjusted yet.)

Me: “Hi, how are you?”

(I begin scanning and bagging her items.)

Customer: *mumbling*

Me: “Did you find everything okay?”

(The customer mumbles, and then begins singing something unintelligible. We play music in the store, so I thought she was singing along.)

Customer: *gradually increasing in volume* “No bag…no bag…NO bag…NO BAG!”

Me: “I’m sorry, are you singing, ‘No bag’?”

Customer: “Well, I told you a couple of times, but you went ahead and started bagging, so I decided to sing it!”

Customers Are Going Gaga

(I’m working the cash register. A male customer of about 40 comes by and places their order. He proceeds to give me his credit card.)

Me: “May I see some ID, please?”

(He stares at me for a moment then breaks out into song as he hands me the ID.)

Customer: “Can’t read my, can’t read my, no you can’t read my pooooookeer faaaaaaace!”

Customer: “Hey, do you guys carry any mandolins?”

Me: “No, I’m sorry.”

Customer: “How about…” *dramatic pause*Wo-mandolins?”

Me: “No.”

(The customer leaves with a grin on his face.)

Next customer: “Really?”

I Dreamed A Dream Of Calls Gone By

(I work at a place that does repairs for Sony computers, stereos, cameras and the like. Hence, our store has the word ‘Sony’ in the title.)

Me: “Good morning, [company name]. How can I help you?”

Customer: “Is that Sony Music?”

Me: “No, sorry, this is Sony Repairs.”

Customer: “I’m trying to get through to Simon Cowell. He works with Susan Boyle.”

Me: “No, sorry. We repair Sony laptops.”

Customer: “So, you’re not Sony Music. Repairs are no good. Thanks.”
