    The Quandaries of Laundry

    | Illinois, USA | Uncategorized

    (I am straightening a rack of clothes when I overhear two customers.)

    Customer #1: *examines the tag on a shirt* “It says ‘Hand Wash Only’. If I buy this, could I borrow your hand washer?”

    Customer #2: “I don’t think I own a hand washer.”

    Customer #1: “Darn!” *puts the shirt back and walks away*

    It’s Gonna Be A Long Call, Part 5

    | Louisiana, USA | Uncategorized

    (I work as a tech support agent at a university. I receive a call from a woman working in another office, asking if she can direct a student to me to assist with setting up his email account. A minute later, I receive a call from a young man.)

    Me: “[University] Computing Call Center.”

    Caller: “Hi, I’m trying to get my password.”

    Me: “Yes, sir. Did someone just call me about you?”

    Caller, to people in his office: “Did somebody just call about me?”

    Caller, to me: “Yes.”

    Me: “Alright, sir, in order to determine your username and password, you’ll need to be in front of a computer. Are you at a computer now?”

    Caller, to people in his office: “Am I at a computer?”

    Identity TV Determined

    | Wasaga Beach, ON, Canada | Uncategorized

    Customer: “Are you on the show [T.V. show]?”

    Me: “Pardon me?”

    Customer: “You know the show [T.V. show]? Are you on it? Cause you really look like a character on it.”

    Me: “No, I am sorry I am not.”

    Customer: “Are you lying to me? I am pretty sure you are that girl from [T.V. show]!”

    Me: “No, I work at [coffee shop], not on a television show.”

    (This went on until my manager had to step in.)

    Manager: *sarcastically* “Yes she is on [T.V. show], she just likes to fly hundreds of kilometers back to Wasaga to work at [coffee shop] because she needs extra money.”

    Customer: “I knew it!”

    (Later on, she brought her boyfriend back and tried to convince me to give her an autograph.)
