(I approach a teenage girl who seems to be looking for something.)

Customer: “Do you have the Evanescence CD?”

Me: “That would be over here. It looks like the only one we have left right now is a Australian import version, if that is okay with you?”

Customer: “What does that mean? Is she singing in Australian or something?”

Customer: *places foil wrapped ham on counter* “I ordered a spiral sliced ham and you gave me a turkey!”

Me: “Okay, let me just see the turkey.” *I open the foil and see that it is definitely a ham* “Ma’am, this is a ham.”

Customer: “No, it’s not. That is a turkey! I think I know what ham looks like.”

Me: “Can you see the bone and the pinkish color? The turkey is boneless and white.”

Customer: “I know what a ham looks like and that is a turkey!”

Me: “I assure you it’s a ham. Would you like to sample it?”

(She samples the ham and looks flustered.)

Customer: “Oh just give me whatever the h*** that thing is!”

| Buffalo, NY, USA | Technology, Uncategorized

(The customer is worried that her internet account is being hacked because she doesn’t have the proper login to see her billing information.)

Caller: “You need to help me!”

Me: “What seems to be the problem?”

Caller: “My account is being hacked!”

Me: “How do you know that you’re being hacked?”

Caller: “I can’t see my billing information.”

Me: “I’m sorry about that. You may not have the administrative logins. Let me get them for you.”

(I pull up the woman’s account.)

Me: “Your username is *** and your password is ***. Please try to log in and let me know if you can see your billing information.”

Caller: “You’re the hacker!”

Me: “I’m sorry, I don’t understand.”

Caller: “How could you know my information if you aren’t the hacker! That is my private information that only I can have access to and you can see it!”

Me: “I’m sorry that you feel that way, but I am not a hacker. I am here to help you.”

Caller: “I will report you to the FBI! Now I need to change my password. How do I do that?”

Me: “Would you like me to do that for you?”

Caller: “Yes.”

Out Of Tune With The Conversation

| Louisville, KY, USA | Family & Kids, Musical Mayhem, Uncategorized

(I’ve worked at this camp on and off for a few years, and a lot of the kids remember me from previous years.)

Kid #1: “Why weren’t you here last year?”

Me: “This camp and band camp were at the same time, so I chose to go to band camp since it was the last time I’d be with my friends.”

Kid #1: “That’s so cool! What do you play?”

Me: “Clarinet in band, but I also play piano.”

Kid #1: “I play piano too!”

(We continue talking about different instruments we play when another girl joins in.)

Kid #2: “I play an instrument, too.”

Me: “Really? Do you play piano too, or something?”

Kid #2: “Well, I listen to Taylor Swift. Does that count?”
