November Theme Of The Month: Black Friday!

Taking A Gamble

| Toronto, ON, Canada | Uncategorized

Customer: “Recommend the movie I am thinking of!”

Me: “Pardon?”

Customer: “You heard me. Are you deaf? Recommend the movie that I am thinking of!”

(I reach over and put my hand on her head.)


Train Trick-ets

| Paris, France | Uncategorized

(At the ticket booth in a Paris subway station.)

Customer: *in very bad French* “Je voudrais deux billets, s’il vous plaît.”(I would like two tickets, please.)

Me: *taking two tickets from a drawer* “Voilà!” (Here you go.)

Customer: “Voilà? I saw you take them out of the drawer!”

Banking Error

| Malaysia | Top

Me: “Here’s your new bank card. You will be able to change your PIN number at the ATM.”

Customer: “PIN number is a redundant phrase. It’s like ‘personal identification number’, number. You work in a bank. You ought to know that by now.”

Me: “You’re right, sir.”

Customer: *smirks* “I’m always right. So, where’s the ATM machine?”

Patronising Patron

| Scotland, UK | Uncategorized

Me: “Hi there. What can I get for you?”

Customer: “A black coffee and a bacon roll, please.”

Me: *repeating order as I write it* “Black coffee and a bacon roll. Okay!”

Customer: “Oh, well done.”

(I begin to write crispy under ‘bacon roll’ on the ticket.)

Customer: “Oh! I mean the bacon roll well done, not you!” *nervous laughter*

Me: “Of course! Extra crispy bacon.”

Customer: “Not that you aren’t doing a good job, of course! I just meant… you know. Thank you, and well done!”

Humor Isn’t Just Skin Deep

| Stockport, UK | Uncategorized

Me:” Hi, how are you? Is there anything I can help you with today?”

Customer: “Hi, I’m looking for a protective foreskin for my phone.”

(There is a slight pause and we both burst out laughing.)

Me: “I think I know what you mean. They’re just over here.”
