    Adding Gallons Of Fuel To The Fire

    | MI, USA | At The Checkout, Crazy Requests, Transportation

    (I work at a gas station that doesn’t require customers to prepay for gas. And yes, the pumps do display the number of gallons a customer pumps.)

    Me: “Hi! Were you on pump two?”

    Customer: “How many gallons did I pump?”

    Me: “I can’t figure that out until you pay. I can print you out a receipt if you would like.”

    Customer: “I just want to know how many gallons I pumped!”

    Me: “I can’t tell you right now, but if you pay the $52.70 I can give you the receipt and it will say the amount you pumped.”

    Customer: “WHY THE H*** CAN’T YOU TELL ME THE GALLONS?!”

    Me: “I can get a calculator and divide the amount you owe by the price of gas, but it would be faster if you paid and I got you a receipt.”

    Customer: *angrily throws money on the counter and walks out*

    Me: *before he even reaches the door I have the receipt printed* “IT WAS FOURTEEN POINT TWO EIGHT GALLONS, SIR!”

    Please Keep Both Hands On The Wheel(chair)

    | Dallas, TX, USA | Awesome Customers, Awesome Workers, Health & Body, Top, Transportation

    (I’ve been in a wheelchair for several years and am still pretty independent. Unfortunately there are times the chair can be a real pain. I broke down on the interstate on my daily commute and do not have a cell phone. As a result I am wheeling myself down the I-35 shoulder headed to the closest gas station when a DPS unit pulls up behind me. I was very tired since the shoulder of an interstate is not the easiest surface for me to go long distances. When I see the cop something just reminds me of a routine traffic stop, which I find hilarious.)

    Me: “Don’t bother asking for my license or proof of insurance for my chair, as I have neither.”

    (The cop looked confused for a second, and then burst out laughing.)

    Good Things Don’t Always Come In Packages

    | Orlando, FL, USA | Crazy Requests, Transportation

    Me: “Thank you for calling. How can I help you today?”

    Customer: “Yeah, I got a package and I signed for it, but I don’t want it, and I need you to take it back.”

    Me: “Okay… We probably can’t take back a package once you’ve signed for it, but let me see what I can do. Can you please tell me the tracking number?”

    Customer: “I don’t have the tracking number. I already told the guy at [Competitor] that. He said they wouldn’t take it, either.”

    Me: “Ma’am, is this package delivered by FedEx, UPS, or the postal service?”

    Customer: “I don’t know! I just need someone to come get it! I don’t want it and I need someone to come get it.”

    Me: “You’re going to need to call our customer service line. Before you call, please find the label on the box and look for the tracking number. They won’t be able to help you without it.”

    Customer: “I’m already talking to you. Why do I need to call a different phone number?!”

    Me: “I work in a retail location, and there is only so much I can do. You will need to call the customer service line.”

    Customer: “Just come get the box!”

    Me: “I’m sorry. All I can say is to call the customer service line.”

    Customer: “Well, all I can say is F*** YOU!”

    Charged With Time-Wasting And Battery

    | KY, USA | Crazy Requests, Health & Body, Technology, Theme Of The Month, Transportation

    (I work at a battery store, and one of the most popular items we have are reconditioned car batteries. I’m gladly closing up the store. I have my arm in a sling since I had dislocated my shoulder a few days before. Some customers roll up:)

    Customer: “We want a reconditioned battery.”

    (By the boss’s instruction, I was to keep the shop open and take care of customers when they came in. So, I get them rung up.)

    Customer: “And we want you to install it.”

    (This is a problem, because it is a Dodge Stratus, which means you have to take the wheel off the car to get to the battery.)

    Me: “Okay, but the surcharge will be [total].”

    Customer: “What! That is ridiculous. I won’t pay that much!”

    Me: “Then I can’t do it.”

    Customer: “Fine! But hurry up!”

    Me: “It will take a little longer because my arm is in a sling.”

    (After more arguing, I finally got started installing the battery. They all walked down the street to a convenience store. An hour and a half after closing, I got the job done, while they stood there and complained that I had taken so long.)

    The Oil Is Glistening But Someone’s Not Listening

    | Whitehorse, YT, Canada | Crazy Requests, Transportation

    (A man walks up to the service counter on a Thursday morning. He wants to make an appointment so he can bring his car in for an oil change.)

    Me: “The next available appointment for oil changes is Monday at 10:30.”

    Customer: “Do you have anything available this afternoon?”

    Me: “No, I’m sorry. We don’t. The next available appointment is Monday at 10:30 in the morning.”

    Customer: “How about tomorrow?”

    Me: “We don’t have any appointments available until Monday next week.”

    Customer: “Do you have openings this Saturday?”
