    Some stupid customers are married to other stupid customers. Some just drag their not-so-stupid other halves along for the ride to suffer in silence. Sometimes they don’t suffer in silence. One thing is true for all three, they’re all hilarious.

    Don’t Get Your Pantyhose In A Twist

    | Canada | Rude & Risque, Spouses & Partners

    (The phone rings. My co-worker, a very proper, older lady, answers it.)

    Coworker: “Thank you for calling [name of store] Beauty Department. How may I help you?”

    Caller: “Do you have pantyhose on?”

    Coworker: “I beg your pardon?”

    Caller: “Do you have pantyhose on?”

    Coworker: *shocked* “Oh my! Such filth! I have never in my life!”

    (She hangs up and runs to the break room completely flustered. A minute later the phone rings again and I answer it this time.)

    Me: “Thank you for calling [store name] Beauty Department, how may I help you?”

    Caller: “Yes hello, I would like to know if you have pantyhose on sale this week? My husband called to check for me a moment ago and somebody hung up on him.”

    Get The Correct Word, Step By Step

    | Omaha, NE, USA | Funny Names, Spouses & Partners

    (I’m stocking the shelves in the electronics/gadgets section when a husband and wife come over. The husband is shouting behind the wife.)

    Husband, to me: “Pedometer! She wants a PEDOMETER!”

    Wife, to husband: “Shut up! I know what I want!”

    Husband: “Tell her it’s a Pedometer!”

    Wife, to me: “Hi, do you have any pedofi–”

    Me: “Pedometers!”

    Losing Cruise Control

    | Keene, NH, USA | Bizarre, Spouses & Partners, Tourists/Travel

    (I am working in the fitting room when a woman walks up to my counter.)

    Me: “Hello, ma’am. How many items?”

    Customer: “You don’t sell winter jackets, do you? I didn’t see any. Nothing like this that I bought at [other store]. This cost me only eighty-nine dollars!”

    Me: “That’s very nice, ma’am.”

    (I try to remain friendly as the woman shows me her jacket, her purse, and the shoes she is currently wearing. This goes on for about ten minutes.)

    Customer: “You know, I went on a cruise a few weeks ago. Now I need to buy a swim suit, but I don’t suppose you have any, do you?”

    Me: “Actually, we just got a bunch of bathing suits in a few weeks ago. They’re over in the corner of the women’s department.”

    (The customer spends about ten more minutes telling me about all of the different cruises she had been on. I’m trying not to be rude, but I have other customers who are trying to get into the fitting room. One by one they go in, and one by one this customer stops them to tell them about all of her cruises. All in all, this lasts for about fifteen more minutes.)

    Customer: “And would you believe that I’m fifty eight years old! I look great for my age, don’t you think? It’s because of all of the cruises I’ve been on! At least two a year. I’m very rich.”

    Me: “That’s nice, ma’am.”

    (Eventually, the customer’s husband comes over and grabs her by the arm.)

    Customer’s husband: “Why are you still over here?! You’ve been here for nearly half an hour.”

    Customer: “Oh, I was just telling this nice young lady about all of the cruises you’ve taken me on!”

    Customer’s husband: “You’ve never been on a god d*** cruise in your entire life, you old bat!”

    Judging By Their Cover

    | Augusta, GA, USA | Books & Reading, Spouses & Partners

    (I’m stocking the front-of-store. A couple asks me for help.)

    Wife: “Hi, we’re looking for a gift for a really weird friend of ours. He’s really hard to shop for.”

    Me: “Sure, what sort of thing are you looking for?”

    Husband: “No, he’s really weird. He actually likes to read books.”

    Wife: “Hush, honey. He works in a bookstore. He’s probably weird too.”

    Indentured Shoe-vitude

    | North Bay, ON, Canada | Spouses & Partners, Top

    (I overhear an older married couple.)

    Husband: “What are we doing here?”

    Wife: “What do you see all around you?”

    Husband: “Shoes.”

    Wife: “That’s right.”

    Husband: “Crap.”
