    You’ve Got The Wrong(est) Number, Part 2

    , | Fort Myers, FL, USA |

    Customer: “Why do you people keep calling me!”

    Me: “Excuse me?”

    Customer: “Ever since I bought this blasted phone the only phone calls I have gotten are from you people! I want you to stop calling me!”

    Me: “I’m not sure what-”

    Customer: “You know exactly what I’m talking about! How can you be so rude as to call someone’s house to bother them? Other people are trying to get through and are complaining to me because they aren’t getting a hold of me at home!”

    Me: “Do you have it with you?”

    Customer: “YES!” *pulls the phone out of purse* “LOOK! Right there! It’s your people’s number! It’s so rude!”

    (When you buy the phones, they have a sticker over the caller ID screen with our 1800 number on it. She hands me the phone with the sticker still on it.)

    Me: “It’s okay, ma’am, we haven’t been calling you, there’s simply this sticker on the screen.”

    Customer: “Why aren’t you answering my question?”

    Me: *removes the sticker* “See? It was just a sticker. That’s all it was…”

    Customer: “So the number isn’t on the phone now?”

    Me: “Nope, our number won’t be on your phone anymore.”

    Customer: “Does this mean you people will leave me alone?”

    Me: “Yes, I promise our corporate headquarters will stop calling you now.”

    Customer: “Ok, thank you!”

    Till Cyanide Do Us Part

    | Green Bay, WI, USA |

    (Note: My boyfriend recently gave me a promise ring; it has a very high setting.)

    Customer #1: “I love your ring. Where did you get it?”

    Me: “Oh thanks! My boyfriend gave it to me.”

    Customer #2: “Does it open up?”

    Me: “Um, I don’t think so.”

    Customer #2: “Because you know, it could be one of those rings that open up to hold poison.”

    Me: *speechless*

    Customer #1: “I don’t think her boyfriend would give her a ring that holds poison.”

    Customer #2: “You never know…”

    Ruh Roh, Retroactive Rewards Rage

    | Pennsylvania, USA |

    Me: “…and your total will be ***. Would you like to join our rewards program? It’s a new program we’re offering where many of the items you purchase everyday will give you rewards toward future purchases.

    Customer: “You have a rewards program that could save me money?”

    Me: “Yes, ma’am. It’s a new program that we just started.”

    Customer: “Why the h*** didn’t anyone tell me about this before? I’ve been coming here for months, and no one has told me about this! How rude!”

    Me: “It’s a new program. We just started it today. In fact, you’re one of the first people that has been offered this reward.”

    Customer: “But I’ve been coming here for months! Do you know how much money I could have saved?!”

    Me: “It’s a new program–”

    Customer: “I can’t believe you wouldn’t have offered something like this to a regular customer when I started coming here! F*** you! I’m going to [competitor's store]!”

    Lax With The Anthrax

    | River Forest, IL, USA |

    (Note: I work security at a small university. A student approaches my desk.)

    Student: “I think someone might have sent me an anthrax letter.”

    Me: “Okay, why do you think that?”

    Student: “Well I got a letter telling me I might have won some money, but I haven’t entered any contests.”

    Me: “Was there any powder in it?”

    Student: “No. Just the letter. But it’s suspicious.”

    Me: “Companies send those out all the time to market things.”

    Student: “I really think it has anthrax.”

    Me: “Okay, give it to me.”

    Student: “Well, I threw it away in the computer lab.”

    Me: “You threw it away in a public trash can?”

    Student: “Well yeah, it might have anthrax!”
