    Twice The Prongs, Half The Brains

    | New Jersey, USA |

    (My dad used to work part time at a tool and garden supply store; this happened around the holidays.)

    My dad: “Hello, sir, can I help you?”

    Customer: “Yeah, I need and extension cord, but I need one with prongs on both ends.”

    My dad: “We don’t sell them. It’s very dangerous to have copper exposed at both ends.”

    Customer: “Well, I need one. Can’t you make me one?”

    My dad: “No I can’t, sir. It would be extreamly dangerous and unethical for me to make that for you. What do you need this for? Maybe I can help you find something else.”

    Customer: “I NEED AN EXTENSION WITH PRONGS ON BOTH ENDS!”

    (My dad suddenly figures out why the guy needs a double pronged extension cord.)

    My dad: “Let me guess, you put the Christmas lights up backwards?”

    Customer: “Yeah…” *stomps off*

    Right Next To The Yeast Pie

    | Sooke, BC, Canada |

    Customer: “Where are the bread donuts?”

    Boss: “Um, sorry sir? All our donuts are a yeast base.”

    Customer: “No, no, bread donuts! YOU DON’T EVEN KNOW YOUR OWN BAKING! BREAD DONUTS!”

    Boss: “I’m not sure what you mean. I’m sorry, sir.”

    (The customer storms off grumbling to himself and makes it about 10 feet.)

    Customer: “Oh! Here they are.”

    Boss: “Sir, those are bagels.”

    Math Saves The Day Yet Again

    | Wisconsin |

    Me: “Welcome to ***, how may I help you?”

    Customer: “Yes, I was calling about a corner fireplace you are supposed to have on sale.”

    Me: “Yes ma’am, let me get you a price on that and check our stock.”

    (I leave, check the sale price ($299), and come back to the phone.)

    Me: “Ma’am?”

    Customer: “Yes?”

    Me: “Looks like the unit is $299.99 on sale.”

    Customer: “WHAT? I have a piece of paper right here that says it should be $315!”

    Me: “Oh, sorry. I said it’s on sale for $299.”

    Customer: “What the h***, it says it right here on my piece of paper! Corner fireplace for $315!

    Me: “Ma’am, $299 is less than $315.”

    (There’s a very long silence.)

    Customer: *click*

    Dirty Deeds For Dirt Cheap Clothes

    | Auckland, New Zealand |

    (A customer walks out of our fitting rooms holding a top, and she has an angry look on her face.)

    Customer: “This top is dirty, can I get a discount?”

    Me: “It just looks like some of your makeup has rubbed off on it; I’m sure it will come out in the wash.”

    Customer: “It isn’t makeup – can you give me a discount?”

    Me: “Uh, I’m pretty sure it is.”

    Customer: *getting louder* “It’s not OK! I dropped it on the ground and stood on it!”

    Me: “You stood on it and made it dirty, and you want a discount?”

    Customer: “…I’ll just go get another size then…”

    Fighting Crazy With Crazy, Part 2

    | Australia |

    (A customer walks in with three cats. One of them is blind, one is shaved and one is dressed as a clown.)

    Me: “Um…this is dog grooming.”

    Customer: “I know, I want to leave my cats here for a year. I heard this was military school.”

    Me: “…I think you want the kennel down the road.”

    Customer: “No, there are penguins there! And bacteria!”

    Me: “…”

    Manager: *to me* “I just went down to the e-coli farm for some sea ice. Want some?”

    Customer: *angrily* “WELL I NEVER!” *storms out*
