(I pick up the phone.)

Me: “Good afternoon, how may I help you?”

Caller: “Hi, can you tell me what 130 mm is in centimeters?”

Me: “13 cm.”

Caller: “Are you sure?”

Me: “Uh, pretty sure.”

Caller: “Hmm, okay. Thank you.”

(I hang up. 30 seconds later the phone rings again, this time one of my co-workers answers it.)

Co-Worker: “Good afternoon, how may I help you?”


Co-Worker: “13 cm.”

Me: “Do you have an ID?”

(The girl hands me her ID. She’s 21. She walks in, the boy she’s with starts following her.)

Me: “Oh, do you have an ID with you?”

Him: “Um…”

Me: “An ID?”

(He hands me his room key and smiles.)

Me: “This isn’t…”

Him: “I know.” *walks sadly out*

No ID, No Idea

(I have just finished helping out this really nice, elderly lady.)

Customer: “Oh, and do you happen to know the date?”

Me: “I will just look–”

(I start to pull out my mobile phone.)

Customer: *excitedly* “Ooh! You’re pulling out your little magic box!”

Some Customers Are Completely See Through, Part 2

Customer: “I’d like a caramel apple latte, please.”

Me: “Certainly, would you like that to go or in a mug?”

Customer: “A mug please.”

(I grab a ceramic mug and start to prepare the drink.)

Customer: “What? No, I want a glass mug, like the one in that poster over there.”

Me: “Sorry ma’am, but we don’t actually have glass mugs. I think they just used it in that ad so you can see the drink.”

Customer: “This is outrageous! It’s false advertising! I don’t want a caramel apple latte unless it’s in a glass mug!”

Me: “I think you should know that it tastes great whether you can see it through the mug or not.”

Customer: “You’re wrong! The glass mug adds fancy deliciousness! I’m never coming here again!” *storms out*

Next Customer In Line: “I’ll have a caramel apple latte, fancy deliciousness not included.”

Taxing Faxing, Part 7

| Sydney, Australia | Food & Drink, Uncategorized

Me: “Hi, [Cake Shop], how may I help you?”

Caller: “Yeah hi, do you have cake boxes?”

Me: “Like the ones we put the sold cakes into?”

Caller: “Yeah, but do you have just plain coloured ones?”

Me: “No, sorry, we only have ones with the company’s logo on it.”

Caller: “Well, can you order one? I told my friend that I got a special cake shop to make the cake, but I made it, and all I need is a plain box.”

Me: “Sorry, we can’t do that.”

Caller: “Okay then, I’ll just get the one with a logo. Can you mail it?”

Me: “No, that’s not store policy. Customers have to collect it themselves.”

Caller: “Well, then just fax it to me.” *tells me his number – and before I can respond* “Thank you!” *hangs up*
