  • August Theme Of The Month: Best. Customer. Ever!

    Library Staff Are Very Amen-able

    | Tennessee, USA | Books & Reading, Religion, Uncategorized

    Customer: *handing me a book* “Is this the Koran?”

    Me: “No sir, this appears to be a book about Ojibwe singers.”

    Customer: “The lady said it would be on aisle 6B.”

    Me: “It is, but the Koran’s call number is 297. This book is listed under 264.”

    *blank stare*

    Me: “Let me try to help you find it.”

    (Walking to aisle 6B, I notice that the book he grabbed is the first book on the aisle, at eye level.)

    Me: “Sir, did you just walk to aisle 6B and grab the first book you saw?”

    Customer: “I couldn’t find it, so…yes.”

    (He then find’s another book on the shelf.)

    Customer: “Oh here it is! Would this be the best one?”

    (The patron has picked up ‘The Complete Idiot’s Guide to the Koran’.)

    The Customer Is A Fool, Of This I Am Curtain

    | United Kingdom | Extra Stupid, Home Improvement, Uncategorized

    Customer: *holding a pair of curtains* “Excuse me, will these curtains fit in my window?”

    Me: “I’m not sure Sir. Do you have the measurements of the window with you?”

    Customer: *confused* “Measurements? I need to measure the window? How do I do that?”

    (I hand the man a leaflet explaining how to measure windows correctly.)

    Customer: “Oh, okay. I didn’t realise you had to take measurements. I just guessed it was one size fits all.”

    Ah, Mothers, Part 6

    | New Jersey, USA | Family & Kids, Uncategorized

    (The child I’m working with is crying, so I go outside to talk to the mother.)

    Me: “Your child seems to have some separation anxiety, ma’am. It’s against the rules, but I could let you stay and watch her work so she’ll feel better.”

    Mother: “Oh, I think she’ll be fine after awhile. See, she’s been upset since we moved here from Chicago.”

    Me: “Yeah, that’s difficult for a child sometimes.”

    Mother: “But don’t tell her we moved, okay? We told her we were only going on a vacation. She has no idea we’re not going back.”

    Undeserved Credit

    | Ohio, USA | Funny Names, Uncategorized

    Me: “Thank you for calling. How may I help you today?”

    Caller: *yelling* “I want to make sure that idiot woman I spoke with a little while ago credited my card back because I think she was stupid and didn’t know what she was doing!”

    Me: “Okay, I’ll be happy to check on that credit for you today. After looking at the account, it looks like it was credited back to the credit card as stated it would be.”

    Caller: “Are you sure that idiot did it? She sounded like a liar to me!”

    (After looking closer at the account, I see it was me who spoke to her last.)

    Me: “Yes, ma’am, I did take care of that credit just like I said I would when you called me a little while ago.”

    Caller: *silence* “Uh… I knew you would. You’re such a sweet girl!”

    Pray She Doesn’t Order Steak

    Customer: “Good morning! What is the special today?”

    Me: “We have a type of baked chicken with a sort of lemon sauce on top.”

    Customer: “Is the chicken alive?”

    Me: “No, I don’t think so.”

    Customer: “Oh, I don’t eat deceased meat, I’m sorry.”

    Me: “Ok, well here is a menu. What else interests you?”

    Customer: “How about a turkey sandwich?”
