    The Highs and Lows Of Parenting

    | Toronto, ON, Canada |

    Me: “9-1-1, police fire or ambulance?”

    Customer: “Police.”

    Me: “What’s your emergency?”

    Customer: “Is it illegal for a 14 year old to be drinking Jack Daniels?”

    Me: “Yes, it is.”

    Customer: “Oh, okay. And, one more question. Is it illegal for a 14 year old to be smoking marijuana?”

    Me: “Yes, it is, ma’am.”

    Customer: “Oh, okay. My son told me it wasn’t. I’d like you to arrest my son please. He’s been doing this for a couple of years now!”

    More Cars Than Common Sense

    | Dallas, TX, USA |

    (I work as a security officer in a mall. Every now and then, we’ll take shoppers to their cars in our “mall mobiles” as a public service.)

    Me: “Hi, how are y’all doing?”

    Husband: “Doing good. We just parked over there. We drive a black Lexus.”

    (I’m unable to find the car in the parking lot the couple thought they parked in. I tell the other officers to help search for it in the other lots and garages.)

    Wife: “What if the car got stolen?”

    Me: “Well, you could file a report with us and the police.”

    Wife: “That’s all? But what about our car?”

    Me: “That’s all we can do, ma’am.”

    (After a little over an hour, we finally declare the vehicle stolen.)

    Wife: “Our car got stolen! How could you let this happen? What’s the point of you guys, anyway? You’re completely useless! We spend our money here so you guys can get paid, and you can’t even keep our cars from getting stolen! So useless!”

    (They file a report with us as well as the city police, and they leave for home via taxi. After about an hour, the lieutenant comes over the radio.

    Lieutenant: “You can forget about that report. That couple got home and found their car in their garage. They forgot they drove a different car tonight.”

    Sloth Goes Shopping

    | Jeffersonville, IN, USA |

    Me: “Thank you for calling [Store], how can I direct your call?”

    Caller:: “Are you in the store?”

    Me: “Yes.”

    Caller:: “Good. Me too.”

    Me: “Sir, what can I help you with?”

    Caller:: “I need to know where [item] is. I didn’t want to walk around the store to look.”

    Me: “It is in aisle 5, sir.”

    Caller:: “You aren’t going to come and show me? You guys are lazy!” *click*

    Introducing Byte-agra

    | London, UK |

    Customer: “Excuse me?”

    Me: “Yes, sir, how can I help?”

    Customer: “I’m looking for…er…a stiffy disk.”

    Me: “I’m sorry–what was it you were after?”

    Customer: “I think it’s called stiffy disk.”

    Me: “Stiffy…wait, do you mean floppy discs?”

    Customer: “Ah, yes! FLOPPY disks!”

    Time Is Money

    | Chicago, IL, USA |

    (A distressed older gentleman approached me, after having used the self-service copy machines.)

    Customer: “I only made 4 copies in black and white and it’s charging me $19.50!”

    Me: “Hmm, that’s a bit odd. Did you take your credit card out already, sir?”

    Customer: “Yes! And it started charging me!”

    Me: “Wait. It shouldn’t be doing something like that…”

    Customer: “It is!”

    (We walk over to the copy machine in question.)

    Customer: *points* “See? It’s even going up to $19.53!”

    (One quick glance and I instantly know what’s wrong.)

    Me: “Sir, that is the clock.”

    Customer: “What?!”

    Me: “Once you eject your card, it goes to the clock, and our card readers they’re set to 24-hour time.”

    Customer: “Ooohhh! Thank you!”
