  • Spiritual, Not Psychic

    | Florida, USA |

    Customer: “I would like help finding a book.”

    Me: “Sure, what’s the title?”

    Customer: “Well, I don’t know.”

    Me: “Okay, who is the author?”

    Customer: “I don’t know.”

    Me: “Okay, can you tell me the subject and maybe we can still find it.”

    Customer: “It’s for a friend. It’s about spiritual something.”

    (I search ‘spiritual’ just to see what happens.)

    Me: “Okay, my computer is showing over 6,000 results. Is there anyway we can narrow the search?”

    Customer: “Isn’t that your job?”

    Daddy’s Little (Working) Girl

    | Texas, USA |

    Caller: “Are you hiring right now?”

    Me: “Yes sir, we are hiring for the infant room.”

    Caller: “Oh, that won’t work. My daughter is 6.”

    Me: “Are you wanting to bring your daughter to our daycare facility?”

    Caller: “Yes. How much do you pay?”

    Me: “Well, I’m not at liberty to discuss what the employees get paid. But, for your daughter’s age, we charge $95 a week.”

    Caller: “So, she will get paid $95 a week?”

    Me: “No, sir. That is what we charge for you to bring your daughter here for the employees to look after, teach, and have play time.”

    Caller: “So she can’t get a job here? She won’t be making any money? F*** it. I’ll call someone else who will give her a job.”

    To Have And To Hold On To The Remote

    | Glasgow, Scotland, UK |

    Customer: “I bought a TV from you last week, and one of my friends told me I need a universal remote control for it.”

    Me: “Right. Was it a TV off display?”

    Customer: “No, a new one in a box.”

    Me: “Did you not get one in the box?”

    Customer: “Yes, but the wife has that! If she’s sitting on one couch and I’m on the other couch and I want to change the channel, what is she supposed to do, throw it to me?”

    Me: “You could ask her to change the channel for you.”

    Customer: *chuckles* “That’s not how marriage works son. I’ll just buy this one.”

    Me: “Right, but if you both have a remote then you’ll keep changing the channel on each other and never see a full programme.”

    Customer: *chuckles again* “Oh son, one day you’ll learn how the world works.”

    No Shirt, No Brains, No Service

    | Waterloo, ON, Canada |

    (Although I normally work nights, I’m taking another drive-thru shift for a friend.)

    Me: “Welcome to [coffee shop]. May I take your order, please?”

    Customer: “Chicken wrap guy.”

    Me: “I’m sorry?”

    Customer: “Chicken wrap guy.”

    Me: “I’m sorry, sir. I’m not the girl that normally works drive-thru. We switched shifts.”

    Customer: “So you don’t know my order then?”

    Me: “Sorry, sir, but I don’t. What would you like?”

    Customer: “Crap. Now I have to remember what I eat!”

    Geographically Incontinent

    | Maryland, USA |

    Me: “Public library, how may I help you?”

    Caller: “Hi, I have kind of a dumb question.”

    Me: “Oh, well, what’s your question?”

    Caller: “I need to know what the seven continents are.”

    Me: “Oh, that’s not a dumb question. Why don’t you tell me which ones you know and I’ll tell you which ones you’re missing.”

    Caller: “Okay, thanks. Let’s see…North America, South America, Asia, Africa, France, Italy…”

    Me: “Whoa, hold up. France and Italy aren’t continents.”

    Caller: “Really?”

    Me: “You said North America, South America, Asia, Africa…the ones you’re missing are Europe, Antarctica…”

    Caller: *writing this down* “Okay…”

    Me: “…and Australia.”

    Caller: “Oh yeah! Austria! Okay, thanks so much.”
