    The Wind In The Windows

    | Orlando, FL, USA | Crazy Requests, Technology, Top

    Me: “Thank you for calling ***. How may I help you today?”

    Caller: “I’m having problems with my computer and–”

    (Suddenly, what sounds like an air raid siren sounds off in the background.)

    Me: “Ma’am, I apologize. I was unable to hear what you said.”

    Caller: “Stupid tornado warnings! They always make it hard to talk on the phone.”

    Me: “Oh…should I let you go?”

    Caller: “Nah. This happens all of the time.”

    (In addition to the siren, I hear a door slam and the sound of someone else entering the room. I hear a male voice who I guess is the caller’s husband.)

    Caller’s husband: “D*** it woman, are you crazy?! Get to the basement!”

    Caller: “Oh, I guess I should go…” *hangs up*

    Cutty Out The Attitude

    | New Zealand | Top

    (I am working in a kindergarten where over half of the kids are Maori. The Maori word for scissors is ‘kutikuti,’ which is pronounced ‘cutty cutty’.)

    Me, to a child: “Can you pass me the kutikuti please?”

    Mother: “What did you say to my child?”

    Me: “I asked her to pass me the scissors.”

    Mother: “Don’t talk baby to my child. She’s smart enough to use adult words.”

    Me: “I wasn’t. I was using the Maori name for scissors.”

    Mother: “No, you said cutty cutty. That’s not Maori. I’m Maori, and I think I know Maori when I hear it.”

    (The child interrupts. She grabs her mom by the hand and drags her off to a poster on the wall which has a few art objects and their Maori names under them.)

    Child: “Mom, why do you always have to pick fights with people? I’m very disappointed in you!”

    (When her mother left I gave the kid the biggest sticker I could find to put on her good behaviour chart.)

    Visual Innuendos

    Me: “Hello, may I help you with anything?”

    Customer: “Ah, yes, please. I have no idea what I’m looking for really.”

    Me: “What room are you thinking about redecorating?”

    Customer: “My bedroom. It’s just so plain boring. I need some action! Action around the bed, you know?”

    Me: “Oh…yeah.”

    Customer: *pauses* “Wall…on the wall! I meant action on the wall!”
