    This Is Why We’re In A Recession, Part 18

    | PA, USA | Money

    Me: “Thank you for calling [Bank]! This is [My Name] speaking; how can I help you?”

    (I hear an elderly customer, sounding very annoyed.)

    Customer: “Yeah, I want to know the balance in my account.”

    Me: “Okay, sir. If I can just get your social—”

    Customer:“I don’t give my social to anyone!”

    Me: “Okay, that’s fine. I’ll need to get your account number, then.”

    Customer: “Okay.”

    (He states a number that’s far different from the norm.)

    Me: “Okay, sir, I don’t see that account. Could you repeat that?”

    Customer: “I just gave it to you! It’s [number]!”

    Me: “I’m sorry, sir; I don’t see anything in our system.”

    Customer: “What? You had better see something in your system!”

    Me: “There’s nothing here. I could try your social, and see if it will come up then.”

    (He gives me his social.)

    Me: “Hmm. I still don’t see anything here.”

    Customer: “What? How does that happen? Do you have any idea how much money I have there?”

    Me: “I have no idea, sir. Nothing is coming up that’s connected to your account number or social.”

    Customer: “Is this [Competitor's Bank]?”

    Me: “No, sir, it’s [Company Bank].”

    Customer: *click*

    100% Idiot

    | UK | Extra Stupid, Health & Body, Top

    (An angry customer approaches me.)

    Customer: “I purchased a pregnancy test from here, and it doesn’t work! I want my money back! I’ll never come here again! Stupid thing didn’t work!”

    Me: “Okay… did you use it properly?”

    Customer: “Do I look like an idiot?! I peed on a stick. Anyone can pee on a f****** stick!”

    Me: “Did any type of line come up?”

    Customer: “No, not a single line. Just a f****** number 30. How can I be 30% pregnant?”

    Me: “Well, this is the first I’ve heard about this. Do you have the box with you so I can check if there have been any problems before?”

    (The customer hands me the box. I stare at it and try not to laugh.)

    Me: “Uh… you do realise that this is a thermometer, right?”

    Customer: *runs out of the store*

    A Hot Slice Of Kindness

    | Boston, MA, USA | Awesome Customers, Food & Drink

    (I am working at a pizza shop on a busy Friday night. There are about five customers waiting in line. I hand the first customer her slice, and move on.)

    Customer: “Excuse me, I don’t like the slice I ordered. I want a new one.”

    Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am; but I can’t just give you another slice.”

    Customer: “But I don’t want this one anymore! I demand to speak to who is in charge. How am I supposed to eat something I don’t like?!”

    (I ask my boss, and he tells me to give her a free slice to avoid an argument. I get the customer a new slice, and am finally able to take care of the other customers. An hour later, my coworker hands me a hot chocolate.)

    Coworker: “Here, this hot chocolate is for you.”

    Me: “Oh, thanks!”

    Coworker: “I didn’t get it; one of the customers who was in here before works at the coffee place. He saw you deal with that difficult customer, so he brought you the hot chocolate for free.”

    (This small act of kindness made my entire night brighter. The next time I see him, he will be getting a free slice of pizza!)
