    Math Saves The Day Yet Again

    | Wisconsin |

    Me: “Welcome to ***, how may I help you?”

    Customer: “Yes, I was calling about a corner fireplace you are supposed to have on sale.”

    Me: “Yes ma’am, let me get you a price on that and check our stock.”

    (I leave, check the sale price ($299), and come back to the phone.)

    Me: “Ma’am?”

    Customer: “Yes?”

    Me: “Looks like the unit is $299.99 on sale.”

    Customer: “WHAT? I have a piece of paper right here that says it should be $315!”

    Me: “Oh, sorry. I said it’s on sale for $299.”

    Customer: “What the h***, it says it right here on my piece of paper! Corner fireplace for $315!

    Me: “Ma’am, $299 is less than $315.”

    (There’s a very long silence.)

    Customer: *click*

    Dirty Deeds For Dirt Cheap Clothes

    | Auckland, New Zealand |

    (A customer walks out of our fitting rooms holding a top, and she has an angry look on her face.)

    Customer: “This top is dirty, can I get a discount?”

    Me: “It just looks like some of your makeup has rubbed off on it; I’m sure it will come out in the wash.”

    Customer: “It isn’t makeup – can you give me a discount?”

    Me: “Uh, I’m pretty sure it is.”

    Customer: *getting louder* “It’s not OK! I dropped it on the ground and stood on it!”

    Me: “You stood on it and made it dirty, and you want a discount?”

    Customer: “…I’ll just go get another size then…”

    Fighting Crazy With Crazy, Part 2

    | Australia |

    (A customer walks in with three cats. One of them is blind, one is shaved and one is dressed as a clown.)

    Me: “Um…this is dog grooming.”

    Customer: “I know, I want to leave my cats here for a year. I heard this was military school.”

    Me: “…I think you want the kennel down the road.”

    Customer: “No, there are penguins there! And bacteria!”

    Me: “…”

    Manager: *to me* “I just went down to the e-coli farm for some sea ice. Want some?”

    Customer: *angrily* “WELL I NEVER!” *storms out*

    One Scamwich, Coming Right Up

    | Texas, USA |

    Customer: “Yeah, we were in earlier and ordered 2 turkey sandwiches, a ham sandwich and a club sandwich, all a foot long. There were flies in them so I want you to give me a refund.”

    Manager: “There were flies in your sandwiches?”

    Customer: “Yes, it was gross. I want my money back!”

    Manager: “Well, where are the sandwiches? Why didn’t you bring them right back?”

    Customer: “I was already home by the time we opened them.”

    Manager: “Well, do you have your receipt?”

    Customer: “No! I just want my money back, there were flies in my sandwiches!”

    Manager: “Sir, I’m going to have to check and make sure there was an order that matches before I can see about a refund.”

    Customer: “…huh?” *long pause, then hurries out of the store*
