    If there’s one common mistake that all stupid customers have made, it is that simple error of getting a name wrong. Be it a product, a person, a store or a place, these simplest of gems often have the most horrific and memorable results…

    (There is a customer in the refrigerated dairy section, looking lost.)

    Me: “Can I help you find something?”

    Customer: *grabs my arm* “Oh, yes! I’m looking for cheese.”

    Me: “Well, it would be in this aisle. What kind of cheese?”

    Customer: “You know, it’s white, and has little green flecks of Filipino.”

    Me: “Uhm, I don’t think we have that. Do you mean jalapeño?”

    Customer: “Yes, that’s it!”

    Dog Gone Crazy

    Customer: “Where is chili?”

    Me: “Are you looking for chili mix or pre-made chili?”

    Customer: “Is chili in can?”

    (I tell him where to find the canned chili. A few minutes later, he comes up to me again.)

    Customer: “Sorry, I no find it. Help please?”

    Me: “Do you know what brand it was?”

    Customer: “It has picture of dog.”

    Me: “A dog logo? I can’t think of a brand that makes chili and has a dog logo.”

    Customer: “Is called… ah… What is it… um… [dog food brand]! Yes, that’s it! [Dog food brand] is name! The one with the dog!”

    Directionless Call, Part 2

    | Chicago, IL, USA | Funny Names

    Me: "Hello, this is [Company Name]."

    Caller: "Hi, who just called me?"

    Me: "I’m not sure. You’ve reached general reception."

    Caller: "Well, someone just called me from this number."

    Me: "Sorry, but there’s no way for me to tell who called you, as this is the general number."

    Customer: "What are you?"

    (I explain the company.)

    Customer: "I didn’t understand anything about what you just said. Why did you call me?"

    Me: "It could be a wrong number."

    Customer: "Ugh, fine. Stop wasting my time by calling me if you don’t know who you are, please!"

    (I am checking out a customer and taking their details.)

    Me: “Ma’am, what is your street name?”

    Customer: “I don’t really have one of those. I usually just go by Shanice.”

    Customer: “Oh, I knew that!”
