    I Once Had A Brain This Big

    | Adelaide, Australia |

    Caller: “I would like to buy a mirror please.”

    Me: “Okay, we have beveled edges, shaped mirrors, plain mirrors. What sort were you after?”

    Caller: “Well I just need one to cover this space. So, can you tell me how much it’s going to cost?”

    Me: “Sure. I just need to know how big you need it.”

    Caller: “What do you need to know that for? It’s just a normal mirror.”

    Me: “I need to know the dimensions so I can give you a proper price.”

    Caller: “Fine, then. Hang on.” *Few minutes pass.* “Are you there?”

    Me: “Yes, I’m here. How big is it?”

    Caller: “It’s this big.”

    Me: “How big?”

    Caller: “I said it’s this big.”

    Me: “Are you standing there with your arms out?”

    Caller: “Yes, why?”

    Me: “Well, because I can’t see how big ‘this’ is. Look, I’ll send out a rep to quote you, okay?”

    Caller: “Fine then, come as quickly as you can. I’m a busy woman, you know!”

    Of Quick Comebacks And Minute Men

    | San Francisco, CA, USA | Top

    (The store is very small with 2 registers and we call customers over one at a time to prevent overcrowding. A customer walks over to register with his wife, without being called.)

    Me: “Oh, hold on there, sir. You came too fast.”

    Customer’s Wife: “Story of my life.”

    Dances With Fools

    | Indianapolis, IN, USA |

    Customer: “I’m hoping you can help me. I saw a movie on TV with Kevin Costner and I want to rent it but I don’t know what it was called.”

    Me: “Okay, what was it about?”

    Customer: “I don’t know, I didn’t see it all. But what I saw was him with a mustache.”

    Me: “Okay. Was it Western-themed?”

    Customer: “I didn’t see it.”

    Me: “Well, did it look like it was set in a different time period?”

    Customer: “No. It was with Kevin Costner. So, some time in the last 30 years.”

    Zombies Need High Speed Internet Too

    | California, USA | Top

    Caller: “When is my DSL install going to be done?”

    Me: “In two days, sir.”

    Caller: “My wife and children just died in a car accident yesterday. I need the internet sooner than that.”

    Me: “I’m very sorry to hear that. I will provide you a complimentary dialup account until your DSL is installed.”

    Caller: “But dialup is too slow…cancel my order!”

    Me: “Sir, if I cancel your order and you wish to schedule service again later, there is a three week wait.”

    Caller: “I don’t care! Do it!”

    (The next day, the same customer calls back.)

    Caller: “Hi, I need to know when my DSL is being installed.”

    Me: “Sir, you canceled your order yesterday. Would you like me to reschedule it?”

    Caller: “Yes, but I’m not waiting weeks for it, my wife is divorcing me and my kids need it for school.”

    Me: “I’m glad to hear that your wife and children have recovered from the fatal car accident.”

    Caller: *silence* “So…can I still get the dialup until my DSL is installed?”

    Me: “Absolutely!”

    Me: “And what did you want the cake to say?”

    Customer:: “Welcome home from jail. Will you marry me?”

    Me: “Okay…”

    (The next week, the same customer comes back in with the cake.)

    Customer:: “I’d like a refund.”

    Me: “I’m sorry to hear that, ma’am. What is wrong with it?”
