    Caller: “I’m not happy with the website.”

    Me: “Why?”

    Caller: “It’s not reporting my usage correctly.”

    Me: “I’m very sorry about that. Is it saying you have used more than you think you have?”

    Caller: “No, it’s saying I have not used any.”

    Me: “Oh, that means we were accidentally giving it to you for free. Thanks for telling me!”

    Caller: “Crap! I should learn not to complain!”

    Customer: “Um, I’ll take it all in the largest bills you have.”

    Me: “So hundreds, then?”

    Customer: “Yeah, a few hundreds, and then some 500 and 1000 dollar bills as well.”

    Me: “Oh, the largest denomination we have is hundreds…”

    Customer: “You see, this is exactly the type of thing that makes me not want to bank with you guys!”

    (I’m finishing a long transaction for a supermarket customer.)

    Customer: “You realise that you didn’t say ‘please or ‘thank you’ throughout all of that?!”

    Me: “I’m sorry, but I thought I did.”

    Customer: “Do you go to college or is this your full time job?!’

    Me: “I go to college, but–”

    Customer: “GOOD! DON’T DO THIS FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE BECAUSE YOU’RE ABSOLUTELY CRAP AT IT!”

    Me: “Hello, May I take your order?”

    Customer: “Yes I’d like two bean burritos, 2 fah-jee-tuhs, grilled stuffed burritos, and a large drink.”

    Me: “Fah-jee-tuh?”

    Customer: “Yes!”

    Me: “You mean fajitas?”

    | Calgary, Alberta, Canada |

    Me: “Hi, how may I help you?”

    Caller: “Yes, can you tell me how to get to your store? I’m coming from the north end of the city.”

    Me: “OK, you’ll need to head south on 14th Street–”

    Caller: “Whoa whoa whoa… slow down, you’re going too fast.”

    Me: “OK, sorry. You will need to head south–”

    Caller: “Don’t talk to me in that tone of voice! Now explain it to me like a civil human being, and tell me how to get to your f***ing store!”

    Me: “…I’m sorry, ma’am. If you just head south–”

    Caller: “What in God’s name is wrong with you? All I want to do is get to your f***ing store so I can get some f***ing music! Is that so d*** much to ask for? Look young lady, I just got out of brain surgery and I can’t deal with your bulls*** right now. You need to talk slowly to me. OK, forget it, you’re wasting my time. I’ll find my way there myself! *hangs up*
