    Me: “Um, we don’t have a salad bar sir, I bring it to your table.”

    Customer: “You bring the salad bar to the table?.”

    Me: “No sir, I bring out a bowl of salad for everyone at the table to share.”

    Customer: “So, it’s not endless?”

    Me: “Yes, it still is endless, I bring out as much salad as you want.”

    Customer: “How you gonna know how much I want?”

    Me: “I bring out as many bowls as you tell be to bring.”

    Customer: “Well how am I supposed to know how many to tell you when I don’t even know how much is in one?”

    Me: “After I bring out the first bowl, you can tell me if you’d like some more.”

    Customer: “But I want all my salad now!”

    Me: “We don’t bring out all the salad at once so you get the freshest product possible.”

    Customer: “But I want it now.”

    Me: “Okay, can I get your name? And how old are these three?”

    Customer: “Why do you need to know how old they are?”

    Me: “If they’re under 12, they get Princess mani/pedis which are ten dollars less.”

    Customer: “No. I want them to have real mani/pedis.”

    (I try to explain twice more that there is no difference besides the price. She starts to yell, causing a scene and bothering other customers.)

    Customer: “You’re trying to give them bad service! I want them to have good nails!”

    Me: “I understand, and they will. Princess treatments are only less because their nails are smaller so they don’t take as–”

    Customer: “I want them to have REAL mani/pedis! You’re trying to give them half-a**ed service!”

    Me: “Ma’am, the only difference is the price. Do you want to pay $156 or $129?”

    Customer: “…Well in that case, yes. They’re all under 12.”

    Me: “Thank you for calling tech support, how may I help you?”

    Caller: “My talk commands aren’t working on my computer.”

    Me: “Your speech commands? Well, tell me what’s the problem.”

    Caller: “I keep telling my computer to turn on, but it won’t.”

    Me: “I’m sorry, but the speech commands only work if the computer is already on.”

    Caller: “Then what’s the point of them?”

    Me: “They make things easier once the computer is on.”

    Caller: “How do I get my computer on if it won’t listen?!”

    Me: “Just turn it on like normal.”

    Caller: “I don’t want to! That’s why I enabled the godd**n speech commands!” *click*
