    Caller: “It won’t stop loading! I’ve been waiting for twenty minutes and it hasn’t stopped loading yet! Help me!”

    Me: “Alright, ma’am. Let’s start by refreshing the page.”

    Caller: “Re… what?”

    Me: “Refreshing, ma’am.”

    Caller: “How do I do so?”

    Me: “Which kind if computer do you have?”

    Caller: “Why?”

    Me: “Which button you have to push depends on your computer. Is it a normal PC or an Apple?”

    Caller, to husband: “Honey, she’s rambling! Now she thinks we’re selling apples! How stupid does she think I am!?” *click*

    You (Could Have) Had Me At Hello

    (I’m an employee stocking the shelf at one end of an aisle. A customer enters at the far end by the milk and is coughing constantly.)

    Customer: *coughs*

    (I briefly glance over. She’s staring at the milk.)

    Customer: *coughs again*

    (There’s a long pause. She’s still staring at the milk.)

    Customer: *loud coughing*

    (I turn to see if she is covering her mouth, but instead see her charging down the aisle at me.)

    Customer: “What is wrong with you?! I’ve been coughing to get your attention down there for five minutes! ”

    Me: “Ma’am, I glanced over at you several times. You never looked at me.”

    Customer: “Oh, yes I did! What does a person have to do here, fall on the floor and have a seizure to get some milk?!”

    (Note: I am a customer, waiting in line at a bank. I overhear the following conversation between the teller and a customer and his friend.)

    Customer: “I’d like to withdraw $160, please.”

    Teller: “Sure, no problem. How would you like that today?”

    Customer: “Umm, three fifties and a ten, please.”

    Customer’s friend: “Whoa, whoa, wait a second. The bank has ten dollar bills?!”

    Your Argument Doesn’t Hold Water

    | Tempe, AZ, USA | Books & Reading, Math & Science, School, Uncategorized

    (At the college bookstore where I work, students can sell their books back for cash at the end of the semester.)

    Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am, but I won’t be able to buy your textbook back because of the water damage.”

    (I flip through the book’s crinkled, sticky pages.)

    Student: “Oh, it’s okay. It’s not water damage, it’s humidity. I went on vacation to Missouri and it was humid.”

    Me: “I still can’t take your book back because I cannot sell this to another student in this condition.”

    Student: “But it’s not water damage! It’s humidity! Humidity made the pages stick together!”

    Me: “Ma’am, what is humidity?”

    Student: “Water, duh!”

    (There’s a pause while the wheels begin to turn in her head.)

    Student: “Oh…can you help me find my other books, then?”

    Batty Is In The Eye Of The Beholder

    | Toledo, OH, USA | At The Checkout, Bizarre, Uncategorized

    (I’m a customer at a grocery store. We’re in a snow storm and people have gone mad in preparation, buying most of the bread, eggs, and milk.)

    Customer: *inches from the cashier’s face* “MILK AND BREAD! MILK AND BREAD!”

    Cashier: *stunned*

    Customer: “I bet all the customers were like that today, huh? All those crazy people buying up all that stuff! But not me, I’m not crazy!” *walks away*

    Cashier: *nervously laughs while looking at me wide-eyed*
