Guest: “So, where are you from?”

Me: “I’m from Missouri.”

Guest: “Really?! My wife has some family up there! It’s in Ohio, right?”

Me: *speechless*

Guest: “Oh, wait. That’s a state, isn’t it?”

A Sign You’ve Gone Overboard Drinking

| Dublin, Ireland | Extra Stupid

(Two elderly men are sitting at the bar and are quite drunk. I overhear this part of their conversation.)

Customer #1: “Was it you or your brother who was drowned at sea?”

Customer #2: *pauses a few moments* “I think it must have been John. He’s the one that worked on the fishing boat.”

The Sticky Details

| Huntington, WV, USA | Technology

Me: “Thank you for calling [company]. This is [name] speaking. How may I help you?”

Caller: “Hi, [name]. Look, my TV controller won’t work. Can you help me?”

(I try troubleshooting, but nothing I suggest seems to work. After almost 20 minutes, he hangs up, saying he’ll call back. A few hours later…)

Coworker: “Thank you for calling [company]. How may I help you?”

Caller: “Can I speak to [my name]? I talked to him a few hours ago.”

Coworker: “Oh, I’m sorry. He clocked out half an hour ago.”

Caller: “Oh, okay. Well, when you see him again, tell him I found out why my controller wouldn’t work. I probably should’ve told him I had spilled soda all over it.”

Jealousy Is A (Rude) Green-Eyed Monster

| Owen Sound, ON, Canada | At The Checkout

(I am helping a customer in line when the phone starts ringing.)

Customer: “Here, I’ll fix that.” *picks up phone and hangs up*

Me: “Sir, you can’t do that. The people calling are customers, too.”

Customer: “I don’t want anyone to come between us.”

(The phone starts ringing again.)

Customer: “You need to help me first!”

Me: “Sir, I promise not to answer the phone until we’re finished.”

Customer: “I can’t take that chance!” *hangs up the phone again*

Rude As Sin In Sin City

| Las Vegas, NV, USA | Uncategorized

Customer: “Wow, you’re ugly as sin.”

Me: “I’m sorry?”

Customer: “This is Vegas! You girls are supposed to be hot. I can’t believe they’d hire an ugly girl in Vegas!”

Me: “Would you like me to get you a more attractive waitress?”

Customer: “Yes, definitely!”
