    MacGyver Becomes a Dad

    | Hampton, SC, USA |

    (A man was picking up a prescription for his infant child.)

    Customer: “How much did you say the prescription was?”

    Me: “$49.99.”

    Customer: “What’s the difference between this and what I can get over the counter?”

    Me: “There’s no cough medicine you can give your 8 month old, sir, other than this.”

    Customer: “Well, what’s in it?”

    (He picks up the prescription papers and starts rustling through them.)

    Customer: “If I can buy everything that’s in it over the counter, I’ll just make it myself.”

    Me: “…excuse me?”

    Driven By Fear, Threats & Minimum Wage

    | USA |

    Me: “Thank you for calling customer support.”

    Customer: “Hi. I need some help figuring out this thing. I’m not very familiar with electronics.” *pause* “YOU’RE A FRAUD AND I’M GOING TO THE BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU RIGHT NOW!”

    Me: “Excuse me, sir, I don’t believe that’s necessary. How can I help you?”

    Customer: “Oh, my friend said you’d only be useful if I scared you. How do I charge my unit?”

    The Dangers Of Using Fishy Logic

    | San Francisco, California | Food & Drink, Geography

    (I work at a fish and chips booth at a 19th-century London convention.)

    Customer: “Hi, I want some chips.”

    Me: “Sure, that’ll be ***. Here are your chips.”

    Customer: “No, I want chips.”

    Me: “These are chips.”

    Customer: “No, they’re french fries.”

    Me: “In England, they’re called chips.”

    Customer: “So? We’re in America.”

    Me: “You’re at a convention set in London.”

    Customer: “So?”

    Me: “So, they’re called chips in an attempt to be authentic.”

    Customer: “The f***? I’m an American and in America they’re called french fries!”

    Me: “So why aren’t they called American fries?”

    Customer: *stares blankly*

    | Wellington, New Zealand |

    Drunk Customer: “You’re American! What state are you from??”

    Me: “Actually Sir, I’m from Canada.”

    Drunk Customer: “OH! The MORMON State!”

    Me: “…”

    Hypothetical Intelligence

    | Newcastle, UK |

    (I work for a political party and am making polling calls.)

    Me: “Hello, my name is *** and I’m calling on behalf of the *** Party. Do you have time to take a quick survey for us?”

    Caller: “Yes.”

    Me: “Thank you. If there was a General Election tomorrow, who do you think you would vote for?”

    Caller: “There’s a General Election tomorrow?”

    Me: “No, but if there was, who do you think you would vote for?”

    Caller: “I would have trouble getting to the polling station, are you offering a lift?”

    Me: “No… it’s a hypothetical election about who would you vote for.”

    Caller: “Sorry, I have to go to the doctors tomorrow!”

    Me: *gives up*
