    There’s nothing worse than a stupid customer than a stupid customer with a cause. If these people had a maker he would likely have filed them under ‘rejects’.

    In The Beginning…

    | Pennsylvania, USA | Food & Drink, Religion

    (I work in the kosher section of our deli. I often get questions about what makes our food different from the things sold at other counters at the store.)

    Customer: “What’s a kosher chicken?”

    Me: “It’s a chicken that was raised, slaughtered, and prepared according to kosher rules.”

    Customer: “What’s kosher?”

    Me: “It’s Talmudic laws regarding food.”

    Customer: “What’s Talmudic?”

    Me: “It’s Jewish religious law.”

    Customer: “What’s Jewish?”

    Not A Fan Of Poly-gab-at-me

    | Utah, USA | Bigotry, Religion

    (I’m finishing up a tech support call. The conversation has been normal up until this point.)

    Customer: “Can I ask where you’re located? You’re not in India, are you?”

    Me: “No, we are not in India. We are located in Utah.”

    Customer: “Utah, huh? Can I ask you a personal question?”

    Me: “Well, I generally avoid discussing personal matters with people I don’t know.”

    Customer: “Okay, well, are you Mormon?”

    Me: “I am.”

    Customer: “How many wives do you have?”

    Me: “None.”

    Customer: “Okay, okay…but how many are you going to have?”

    Me: “One.”

    Customer: “Oh, come on, you’re Mormon! Shouldn’t you have like twenty?”

    Me: “Sir, it is a common misconception that Mormons have more than one wife, but we don’t. Is there any other technical issue I can help you with?”

    Customer: “I would become Mormon just so I could have a bunch of wives.”

    (In the background, I hear a woman yelling at the man I’m speaking with.)

    Customer: “Shut up, woman! I’m on the phone!”

    Me: “It doesn’t sound like you can handle the wife you already have. Why would you want more?”

    Customer: “Well, I wouldn’t want to talk to them!”

    The Costumer Is Always Right

    | California, USA | Bigotry, Bizarre, Religion

    (It’s a few days before Halloween, and I’m a customer waiting for my sister to pick out a Halloween costume at a popular party store. An elderly customer approaches me. Note: I am a goth, but also a Christian.)

    Customer: “Do you know where the boy’s birthday decorations are?”

    Me: “I’m sorry, I don’t work here. I wouldn’t know.”

    Customer: “But you’re with the store. You’re in a costume.”

    (I look around at the other employees, all of which are wearing bright green vests, name tags, and silly hats. Then, I realize she is referring to my black jacket and large black boots.)

    Me: “I’m sorry, I really don’t work here. These are my normal clothes. I’m a goth; I’m not in costume.”

    Customer: *visibly afraid* “Don’t put a curse on me! I know your type! You do that voodoo, and you hate Jesus!” *runs out of the store*

    Me: *speechless*

    Sudo-Religious

    | New Zealand | Religion, Technology

    (An older customer with a very old laptop approaches me.)

    Customer: “Can you help me? I upgraded to the new Windows 7 thing and it’s going really really slow. Do I have a virus?”

    Me: “I’ll take a look, but have you considered running Linux or moving back to Windows XP if you still have it? Your computer’s probably slow because it’s not new enough to handle the more intensive new operating systems.”

    Customer: “But Linux is made by atheists!”

    Try Adobe HeathenShop

    | Baltimore, MD, USA | Religion, Technology, Top

    Customer: “Excuse me, can you tell me how this converter works?”

    Me: “Let me see. It looks like you put your old photo negatives into it and it converts them to digital images.”

    Customer: “So, it doesn’t make them Christians?”

    Me: “Uh…what? Who?”

    Customer: “It says it’s a “converter”. So, does it make the people in the pictures turn from devil worshippers into Christians?”

    Me: *stunned* “No…No, it doesn’t do anything like that. It takes old negative strips from film cameras and converts them into digital images.”

    Customer: “So, it won’t make them Christian?”

    Me: “Nope.”

    Customer: “What a useless piece of crap that is, then!”
