    Some Days Just Aren’t Worthy

    Me: “Thank you for calling [store] uniforms. How may I help you?”

    Caller: “Hi, I have a couple of questions. First off, do you guys sell uniforms?”

    Me: “Yes, we do.”

    Caller: “Okay, great, now my second question is, are you guys open?”

    Me: “Yes, we are open all week.”

    Caller: “So, you’re closed on Sundays?”

    Me: “No, we are open all 7 days.”

    Caller: “But you just said you’re open all week.”

    Me: “Yes, hence the seven days.”

    Caller: “Hey, don’t get smart with me! There are only 5 days in the week and 2 days in the weekend!”

    Me: *confused* “No, there are 7 days in a week and we are open all seven days.”

    Caller: “I want to speak to your manager now!”

    Me: “Okay, please hold and I’ll transfer you.”

    Manager: “Hello, [manager] speaking, how can I help you?”

    Caller: “Do you people just hire the most stupid people on the planet?”

    Me: “How can I help you today?”

    Customer: “I’m looking for a parcel.”

    Me: “May I have your tracking number, please?”

    Customer: “My what?”

    Me: “Your tracking number. All of our parcels have tracking numbers which the sender can give you if you do not have it.”

    Customer: “Why don’t you have it?”

    Me: “Because I didn’t send you the parcel.”

    Customer: “So, who did then?”

    Me: “Sir, do you not know who sent you the item?”

    Customer: “No, but my neighbor just had something delivered and I want one too. So send me something now!”

    (The caller then muffles the phone and I can hear what sounds like sobs.)

    Me: “Sir, are you okay?”

    Customer: “I’m so lonely and I just wanted to get a present!” *more sobbing*

    Customer: “I’m so lonely!”

    Me: *speechless*

    Customer: “Never mind, I’ll go now…”

    Me: “Sir…wait. We do have a parcel for you. I just need to confirm your address to send it to you. It will be there this afternoon!”

    (After he gives me his address, I have a quick whip around the call center and we get a card signed by the team, put in a few chocolate bars with other happy bits and pieces, and send it to him. He calls the next day and thanks us all. Now, he rings once a week on average, and we are all happy to chat with him.)

    (My coworker and I are talking in our tills since it’s a slow night when a woman walks up.)

    Customer: “I have eggs. A lot of eggs.” *walks away*

    Coworker: “Uh, that’s great?”

    Supervisor: “Sorry, girls, she runs a baking charity. I believe she’s picking up 16 dozen eggs today.”

    Not The Usual Third Wheel

    | Rochester, NY, USA | Uncategorized

    (I am the only girl on a team of 5-6 working in a computer repair store. There are always a few “regulars” that came in to seek help from me.)

    Me: “How can I help you today, sir?”

    Customer: “Yes.” *pause* “It’s my computer…”

    Me: “Okay, what’s wrong?”

    Customer: “Um, actually I was wondering if you would like to go get dinner or coffee or something sometime?”

    Me: “Sir, I am married. Now, what is wrong with your computer?”

    Customer: “So?”

    Me: “Excuse me?”

    Customer: “What does being married have to do with going out?”

    Me: “Um…”

    Customer: “Oh, okay, fine! He can come too!”
