    Baby Name Decisions Should Not Be Left To Linger(ie)

    | Rochester, NY, USA |

    (A woman exits the dressing room with lingerie.)

    Me: “So, what did you think?”

    Customer: “I loved them, I’m taking them all. It’s my anniversary. My husband is going to love these.”

    Me: “Good!”

    Customer: “I’m gonna make a baby tonight!”

    Me: *speechless*

    Customer: “What’s you’re name, sweetie? I’ll name it after you!”

    Me: “Um, can I ring those up for you?”

    Taxing Faxing, Part 4

    | Pittsburgh, PA, USA |

    Customer: “Yeah, hi, I just called earlier to have a report faxed. It hasn’t come through yet.”

    Me: “I already sent that out to you, but I can send another copy if you’d like.”

    Customer: “Hmm. You think it could be my end?”

    Me: “Let’s check the basics. Have you received faxes earlier? Is it plugged in?””

    Customer: “Oh, here’s the problem! The paper isn’t loaded!”

    Me: “Okay! Fill it up and I’ll send it again.”

    Customer: “Um, I don’t seem to have any paper here. Could you fax me some paper so I could load it with it before you fax the report?”

    Supervisor Is Super Wiser

    | Texas, USA |

    Me: “Thanks you for calling [company], how can I assist you today?”

    Customer: “I want a supervisor.”

    Me: “Is there any reason that you need the supervisor?”

    Customer: “Just give me a supervisor!”

    (I do the standard procedures to transfer to a supervisor. 3 minutes later, the same caller:

    Customer: “What did the supervisor write in my account?”

    (I saw the comments on the account, the supervisor wrote: “No more supervisor calls for this customer.”)

    Bananas Can Taste Of Bitter Disappointment

    | San Diego, CA, USA |

    (We sell bananas next to the cash register with a sign fixture that reads: ‘Bananas – 90 cents!’.)

    Me: “Here’s your tall coffee, sir.”

    Customer: *looking at bananas* “Oh, so that’s what you call them! ‘Tropical Paradise Bars’. I’ve been calling them bananas my whole life!”

    (I see the banana sign has accidentally been flipped over to read ‘Tropical Paradise Bars – $2.25’.)

    Me: “Oh, that’s the wrong sign.” *flips sign back over*

    Customer: “Oh. Never mind then.” *walks away looking disappointed*

    Recruiting For New Blood

    | Winnipeg, MB, Canada |

    Donor: “I’ve never seen you here before.”

    Me: “Well, yes, I am relatively new, but I’ve been involved with [blood bank] for a long time.”

    Donor: “So, are you like a volunteer or something?”

    Me: “No, I am an employee. I had to undergo several weeks of training for this.”

    Donor: “But you look too young to be an employee!”

    Me: “I assure you, I am a full employee.”

    Donor: “But you’re only like 14!”

    Me: “Actually sir, I’m 20, almost 21.”

    Donor: “No way!”

    Me: “Let me put it this way. Would you really want a 14 year old volunteer removing a 14 gauge needle from your arm and handling your blood?”

    Donor: “Good point. Carry on.”
