    Brazen Overtures Like Mints On Pillows

    | Little Rock, AR, USA |

    (It was my first night on the job. A woman just checked in and complained that there was “man hair” in her bed. I could tell she was tired, so I put her in a new room and even offered to carry her luggage for her, to which she declined. Two hours later, I wrote a short note saying, “I apologize for the hair in your bed. Please enjoy a free breakfast in the morning on me and I hope you enjoy your stay.” She approached the front desk moments later.)

    Customer: “Um, excuse me. What is this?”

    Me: “Well, I felt bad about the problem with your room so I was just trying to show some extra hospitality. I figured you would get it when you woke up in the morning.”

    Customer: “No! That’s not what this is. This is sexual harassment!”

    Me: “Excuse me? I was trying to be nice and hospitable because I felt bad about your situation.”

    Customer: “Do you have any idea what it’s like to be a female traveler, and to be harassed by employees and other male travelers?”

    Co-worker: “Ma’am, this is his first night working here. I assure you that he used his best judgment, and meant nothing sexual by his nice gesture.”

    Customer: “I’m sure he’s nice, but you need to tell him how to interact with female customers. Offering to help carry luggage and putting notes under doors is sexual harassment! I will not be staying here ever again!” *leaves*

    Me: *to co-worker* “Note to self: Don’t offer to carry luggage for a woman again or offer her a free breakfast coupon.”

    Co-worker: “I think she just wanted to think you were sexually harassing her.”

    Raising The Next Always Right Generation

    | Novi, MI, USA |

    (This is at a soup shop where we offer samples.)

    Customer: “Hi. Can I try the **** soup?”

    Me: “Sure, but be careful – it’s very hot.”

    (She proceeds to sip it without grabbing a spoon which is in her line of sight.)

    Customer: “OW! That is really hot!”

    (She hands it to her 6-year-old son who proceeds to do the same thing she just did.)

    Child: “That burned my tongue!”

    Customer: “You should warn people that your soup is hot!”

    Me: “Would you buy the soup if it was cold?”

    Customer: “Absolutely not.”

    Who’s Got The Power Now, Part 2

    | Auckland, New Zealand | Top

    Caller: “I don’t care what your little book says, put my f***ing power on!”

    Me: “I can’t do that for you unless you pay your debt in full, sir.”

    Caller: “Why are you being a b**** about this? Just let it slide!”

    Me: “We’ve been letting it slide for months, sir. You now owe us in excess of a thousand dollars. Our rules are very clear: we are not to reconnect your power until you pay your debt.”

    Caller: “F*** you! I’m going to kill you! I’m going to come to your house and kill you!”

    Me: “The difference between you and me, sir, is that I know where YOU live.”

    Caller: *click*

    Refund Rejects

    | Houston, TX, USA |

    (A couple returns from a theatre to get a refund on a movie they have just seen.)

    Customer: “I need my money back.”

    Manager: Which movie was it for?

    Customer:Kate and Leopold. That was the worst movie, ever!”

    Manager: “That movie just ended. I can’t give you a refund for a movie you watched all the way through.”

    Customer: “Well, if there were a roach in my food at a restaurant, I would get my money back!”

    Manager: “Not if you eat the whole meal, roach and all!”

    History And Cookbooks Are Written By The Victors

    | Calgary, Alberta, Canada | Food & Drink, Health & Body, History

    (An older lady is looking through the buffet, when she comes to our Japanese section. She eyes the sashimi.)

    Customer: “Oh! Is this smoked salmon?”

    Me: “No ma’am, it’s actually sashimi, the Japanese way of serving fish, so it’s cleaned and served raw.”

    Customer: “Raw? That can’t be healthy! Are you sure you are allowed to serve raw fish? Someone could get sick!”

    Me: “I can assure you, raw salmon won’t get anyone sick. We have served this for years.”

    Customer: “But it’s raw! Someone will get sick! That’s what raw fish does – gets people sick!”

    Me: “Ma’am, the Japanese have been eating raw fish for centuries. I think it will be OK.”

    Customer: “Well, they also lost World War 2. I don’t think this is safe!”

    Me: “…”
