    Paid In Fool

    | Vancouver, Canada |

    Me: “Thank you for calling [cell phone provider]. How can I help you?”

    Customer: “Hi, I was just wondering if you’d gotten my payment?”

    Me: “It doesn’t look like we have. May I ask how you paid?”

    Customer: “I went to one of your stores two months ago just as they were closing up. A guy was walking out of the store and I asked if he worked there, so I gave him an envelope with my payment and telephone number written on it. He said he’d give it to his manager the next day.”

    Me: “Did you go back to the store to find out what happened?”

    Customer: “Yah, they said that no one matching the description I gave them worked there! So…is there any way you could adjust that charge?”

    You’ll Need Special 2D Glasses, Though

    | Ontario, Canada |

    (At the zoo where I work, I’m answering questions from a group of tourists from Connecticut.)

    Tourist: “So, do you all say ‘eh’ in Canada?”

    Me: “Not too much, really. Maybe they say it a bit more out east.”

    Tourist: “Canada has an EAST?!”

    More Leftovers, Less Landfill

    | Cincinnati, OH, USA |

    (I work for the city government and received this call the day after Halloween.)

    Customer: “The garbage collectors didn’t take all my garbage this morning. They left my pumpkin.”

    Me: “Well, sir, where did you leave the pumpkin for collection?”

    Customer: “In my recycling bin.”

    Me: “Well, that’s why they didn’t take it. You need to put it in your garbage can.”

    Customer: “But you can recycle a pumpkin!”

    Me: “Sir, what do you think they are going to recycle your pumpkin into?”

    Customer: “PIE!”

    A Hole In Your Thinking

    Customer: “Can I have a sample of this doughnut?”

    Me: “Sorry, no.”

    Customer: “But you used to give them out! Why can’t I get one?”

    Me: “Yeah, that was a long time ago. Now we only give it to children.”

    Customer: “I’m twelve. Can I have a sample?”
