    A Lack Of Common Scents

    | Richland, WA, USA | Top

    Me: “Thank you for calling [clinic], how can I help you?”

    Customer: “I’d like to know how much it is to descent my cat. He was a stray that was eating our other cats‚Äô food and we decided to keep him.”

    Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am. We can’t de-scent a cat. He may be spraying to mark his territory, and if he is, we can neuter him.”

    Customer: “I assure you my cat has scent glands! He backs up to furniture, marks them, and if you startle him, he will turn around and try to mark you! And he’s mean too! If you try to come near him, he growls and tries to bite.”

    Me: “Ma’am, cats don’t spray when startled usually. Are you sure it‚Äôs a cat?”

    Customer: “Well, yes.”

    Me: “What color is it, ma’am?”

    Customer: “Black and white.”

    Me: “What do his markings look like?”

    Customer: “All black with two white stripes down its back.”

    Me: “Ma’am, that is not a cat. That is a skunk.”

    Customer: “Well, you have obviously never seen a cat before!” *hangs up*

    Six Feet Blunder

    | Florida, USA |

    Customer: “How much for two graves?”

    Me: “Spaces are $900 each, ma’am, so $1800 for two.”

    Customer: “There’s no discount for buying more than one?”

    Me: “No ma’am, because we’re deeding you the property, we have to treat each space separately.”

    Customer: “So, what if I buy five graves?”

    Me: “Because the spaces are $900 each, five would cost $4,500.”

    Customer: “Never mind, I don’t want to go in the ground anyway. What about those little crypt thingies that look like New Orleans graves?”

    Me: “A personal mausoleum crypt for two people runs at $13,000 including the name plating and vases.”

    (The customer inspects our display model.)

    Customer: “This thing’s pretty big. I’ll just buy this double one, and there will be enough space for all six of us.”

    Me: “Um, no, ma’am. This is for two people. There is only space for two, not six.”

    Customer: “I’m not stupid! You people are trying to rip me off! I’ll just tell my kids to put me in the backyard next to the hamster!”

    Disco Stu Does Not Approve

    | Portland, OR, USA | Bizarre, Top, Wild & Unruly

    (A man walks into our crowded coffee shop and yells at the top of his lungs.)

    Man: “EVERYBODY GET DOWN!”

    Supervisor: “Oh no, it’s a robbery!” *begins to call security*

    Man: “…on the DANCE FLOOR!”

    (The man then “dances” up to the front, past shocked customers, grabs a bottle of water, and “dances” out of the store. Security nabs him outside the door.)

    Do As I Say, Not As I Say

    | Greensboro, NC, USA |

    (I’m ringing up a customer and her child.)

    Me: “Hi, how are you today?”

    Customer: *doesn’t answer*

    Customer’s child: “HELLO!”

    Me: “Hi!”

    Customer’s child: HELLO!”

    Me: “Hi!”

    (I do this a few more times with the child while I finish ringing up the items. I turn to the customer again, thinking she didn’t hear me the first time.)

    Me: “How are you today, ma’am? Your total is $xx.xx.”

    Customer: *messes in her bag and ignores me*

    Me: “Ma’am? Your total is $xx.xx.”

    Customer: “You know why I’m not answering you? Because you were too busy talking to speak to my child!”

    Me: “I did respond to her…several times, in fact.”

    Customer: “You did not!”

    Me: “I assure you I did. I looked right at her, and she was looking at me.”

    Customer: “Well, she must not have heard you or she wouldn’t have repeated herself so many times. Next time stop chatting and do your job!”

    Can’t Help Flailing In Love

    | Burnsville, MN, USA |

    (Note: I’m a teenage girl volunteering at a concert venue. A male teenage customer approaches my concession stand.)

    Me: “Hi, how can I help you?”

    Customer: “Yeah, I’d like some water.”

    Me: “Okay, let me grab some from the fridge.”

    Customer: “Thank you!”

    (The customer pays and leaves, only to come back a few minutes later to buy some more water. He continues to do this nine more times.)

    Me: “Must be really thirsty tonight, huh?”

    Customer: “I don’t know what you’re talking about.”

    Me: “You’ve just bought quite a bit of water. There is a drinking fountain over there, you know.”

    Customer: *stares at me dead in the eyes*

    Me: “Is it hot outside or something?”

    Customer: “Wanna see how long I can spin around on this stool?”

    Me: “Uh…”

    Customer: “Will you time me?”

    Me: “Well, I guess so.”

    Customer: “Okay, go!”

    (The boy then proceeds to fall off the chair and go flailing onto the floor.)

    Me: “Oh, my god! Are you alright?”

    Customer: “You’re cute.”

    Me: “Um, that’s flattering. Are you okay?”

    Customer: “I wanna be your boyfriend!”
