    Blind As A Bat Out Of Hell

    | Norway |

    (One day, a lady walked into our hair salon and said she had an appointment. We looked through the client list, but couldn’t find it.)

    Me: “Sorry, but I can’t find your appointment here. Are you sure it was today?”

    Customer: “Of course! I demand an appointment now!”

    Me: “Well, I’m really sorry. I can’t find you on the system. We’re booked out today, but I can put up a new appointment for you if you want.”

    Customer: “This is bull! I booked an appointment a long time ago. Give me an appointment now, or I’ll call the police!”

    Me: “Well what were you going to do? Maybe I can fit you in between two other clients.”

    Customer: “I was going to get my eyes checked and get new glasses!”

    Me: *trying not to laugh* “Ma’am, the optical store is next door.”

    Customer: “Uh… well…” *gives me a dirty look and leaves*

    Stupidity Can Go Either Way

    | Florida, USA |

    Customer: “Excuse me. Do you have any left-handed golf balls?”

    Me: “Excuse me?”

    Customer: “I’m left-handed, and I need a left-handed ball. I don’t want my balls curving to the right all the time.”

    Me: “All the balls are the same. They’re round, and they don’t have a hand preference.”

    Customer: “Don’t f*** with me. I already had to search through all your clubs for a left-handed one, so where’s your left-handed balls?”

    Me: “…the dark green and the orange balls are left-handed.”

    Customer: “See? Was that so hard?”

    Me: *facepalm*

    You Can’t Always Love What You Do

    | Richmond, VA, USA |

    (While closing up shop alone one night, two gentlemen walked in and the following conversation took place.)

    Customer: “So, uh…how much experience do you need to groom dogs?”

    Me: “Well, none to start out. They start you as a bather, and then after about three months they send you through an academy to learn how to groom dogs.”

    Customer: “You gotta go to school for this?”

    Me: “Yes – it’s actually not as easy as it looks.”

    Customer: “You make a lot of money?”

    Me: “Well, that’s hard to say. We work on commission so…it just depends on how many dogs you can do in a week.”

    Customer 2: “You think if you’ve got a cruelty to animals charge, they’ll let you work here?”

    Me: “…no.”

    Bridging The Cultural Gap, One Angry Customer At A Time

    | Boston, MA, USA |

    Me: Hello, my name is ****. How may I assist you today?

    Customer: “Yeah, I’m trying to watch the baseball game, but it’s in Spanish. I don’t speak Spanish.”

    Me: “OK sir, have you tried to remove the SAP function on the TV? If you don’t know how, I can walk–”

    Customer: “Listen, I have had you people tell me this over and over again! I want a valid reason the game is in Spanish, and none of this ‘SAP’ junk.”

    Me: *gives up* “Well sir, the real reason is many of the players are not from America. How are they supposed to know what’s going on if the game is broadcast in English?

    Customer: “Thank you! At least one person there knows what’s going on. Have a nice day.”

    Me: “…”
