    Category: Musical Mayhem

    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.

    Out Of Tune With The Conversation

    | Louisville, KY, USA | Family & Kids, Musical Mayhem

    (I’ve worked at this camp on and off for a few years, and a lot of the kids remember me from previous years.)

    Kid #1: “Why weren’t you here last year?”

    Me: “This camp and band camp were at the same time, so I chose to go to band camp since it was the last time I’d be with my friends.”

    Kid #1: “That’s so cool! What do you play?”

    Me: “Clarinet in band, but I also play piano.”

    Kid #1: “I play piano too!”

    (We continue talking about different instruments we play when another girl joins in.)

    Kid #2: “I play an instrument, too.”

    Me: “Really? Do you play piano too, or something?”

    Kid #2: “Well, I listen to Taylor Swift. Does that count?”

    Her Head’s Up In The Sky With Diamonds

    | Las Vegas, NV, USA | Musical Mayhem

    (A customer about the age of thirty walks into the store.)

    Me: “Hello, how may I help you today?”

    Customer: “Yes, I’m looking for some recent Beatles records. Do you have any?”

    Me: *assuming she means recent re-releases* “Hold on one second.”

    (I find some and hand it to her.)

    Customer: “Thank you so much! The Beatles are my favorite band! I would shoot myself if they ever broke up!”

    Customer behind her: “Well, get your gun ready.”

    Stupidity Killed The Radio Star

    | Saskatoon, SK, Canada | Musical Mayhem

    (I work at a radio station. This caller is live on the air.)

    Me: “Hello! What would you like to hear?”

    Teenage Girl:Fireflies!”

    Me: “By Owl City?”

    Teenage Girl: “Woah! I hear my voice!”

    Me: “Yeah, you’re on the air.”

    Teenage Girl: “Molly! If you can hear this I’m so totally sorry about kissing your brother!”

    Me: “Uh…”

    Teenage Girl: “Are you going to play I Like Big Butts or not?”

    The Day The Music Died

    | Santa Maria, CA, USA | Musical Mayhem

    (I am checking out a customer buying an MP3 player.)

    Customer: “Does this come charged?”

    Me: “I don’t think so, why?”

    Customer: “Well, I want to listen to it on the way home.”

    Me: “But there’s nothing on it.”

    Customer: “There’s not? Where’s all the music then?”
