    Sadly, There Is No Cure For Rudeness

    | North Battleford, SK, Canada | At The Checkout, Health & Body, Top

    (I have psoriasis, a hereditary condition which leaves me with large red patches on my scalp. This occurs while I am waiting in line at a convenience store with a woman standing behind me.)

    Customer: "What’s wrong with you?"

    Me: "I beg your pardon?"

    Customer: "Those ugly blotches all over your head. What do you have?"

    Me: "Oh, it’s a highly contagious flesh eating disease. Very painful."

    Customer: "Oh my gosh! Really? How contagious is it?"

    Me: "Well, you probably already have it."

    Customer: *rushes out of the store in a panic*

    Take It Away, Uncle Sam

    | New Zealand | Food & Drink, Language & Words, Tourists/Travel, Uncategorized

    (Fast food places are often referred to as takeaway stores in New Zealand.)

    Me: “Hello and welcome to [fast food]. May I take your order?”

    Customer: “So, what is a tar… key… ah… way…?”

    Me: “Um, takeaways. As in food you can take away.”

    Customer: “Oh, is it a Maori word?”

    Me: “No sir. It’s an English word. May I ask, are you from out of New Zealand?”

    Customer: “Yes, I’m from America, but you’re lying about takeaways being an English word. I’ve been to Canada and they don’t use it there!”

    Acting Rashly Can Leave You Pooped

    | Oklahoma City, OK, USA | Extra Stupid, Technology, Uncategorized

    (I’m work as a technical support agent for a satellite TV company. I get a call where I hear a baby screaming in the background.)

    Me: “Thank you for calling Technical Support. How are you doing this evening?”

    Customer: “Hello? Yes? I need to speak to someone in the technical department.”

    Me: “Yes ma’am, this is the technical department, how can I help you?”

    Customer: “Hi, I’m babysitting for a woman, and she has a one year old. I’ve never actually babysat a baby before, and I can’t figure out how to get the diaper off so I can change him! These things have some sort of electronic lock or something on them right so the baby can’t take them off?”

    Me: “Ma’am, this is customer support for satellite television, not a child care line.”

    Customer: “But you are a technical guy right?! You should be able to help me out! Is there somewhere I can put a code in or something? Come on!”

    Me: “Ma’am, again I apologize, but this is a technical support line for satellite television. I really can’t help you.”

    Customer: “Please, I’m begging you! I want to get paid for this job! if I don’t change his diaper and he gets a rash or something, I’m going to be in big trouble!”

    Me: “Have you tried peeling back the two little tapes on the front of the diaper?”

    (I hear the customer pause for a second, and then I hear the tell tale ripping noise of the diaper tapes being peeled away.)

    Customer: “Wow! You’re a genius! It came right off! Did you press a little button or something on your end?”

    Sinfully Delicious

    | Savannah, GA, USA | Food & Drink, Religion, Uncategorized

    (This bakery is a vintage style, family owned bakery with custom names for each product.)

    Customer: "As a man of the cloth, I know this is a weird order. But could I get a Hazel Feelgood and a Drunk Blondie?"

    Ear-Waxing Lyrical About Bad Service

    | London, UK | Health & Body, Uncategorized

    Customer: “I’ve come to pick up my prescription.”

    Me: “Oh I’m really sorry, due to extenuating circumstances we don’t have a pharmacist at the moment so legally I can’t give out any prescriptions. But if you wait 5 minutes, a replacement pharmacist will be here and then you can take it.”

    Customer: “But I need it. Give it to me!”

    Me: “I understand your problem but I would be breaking the law if I gave it to you.”

    Customer: “I work in the pharmaceutical industry and I know for a fact you are lying! Give it to me now!”

    (The pharmacist arrives and I explain the problem.)

    Pharmacist: “I’m really sorry for the inconvenience but my colleague was right, there was nothing she could do. But now that I’m here, you can take your prescription.”

    Customer: “You’re colleague is a cruel, moral-less b**** with the intelligence of a moron. She has endangered my life! I shall take this to court and win!” *storms out*

    Me: *to pharmacist* “What was in her prescription?”

    Pharmacist: “Drops for excessive ear wax.”
