Me: “Hello, thank you for calling [golf store]. How may I help you?”

Caller: “Could you tell me the difference between American golf and Mexican golf?”

Me: “Mexican golf? I’m pretty sure golf is played the same around the world.”

Caller: “Well, I’ve heard them mention the ‘Golf of Mexico’ a few times on TV so I was wondering if it was any different.”

Customer Requests Can Be Unrealistic

(I work for a large retailer at a mall as a security guard which means wearing a dress shirt and tie with a jacket. As it’s the holiday shopping season it is impossible to find parking. I had just parked my car to go into work when I was approached by an older lady in her vehicle.)

Customer: “Excuse me young man, are you leaving?”

Me: “No, ma’am. I just got here.”

Customer: “Why are you all dressed up?”

Me: “Well, I work at the store over here.”

Customer: “So you’re not a real person? You should give me your spot.”

Me: “Excuse me?”

Customer: “You’re not a real person. You don’t need to park here like everyone else!”

Customer: “Oh my God! Did I just ask you for weed?”

Customer: “Excuse me, it looks like flies have laid eggs in your muffins.”

Me: “Actually, ma’am, those are poppy seeds.”

Customer: “No they’re not, they can’t be. Poppies are from ‘The Wizard of Oz.’ They’re not real.”

Me: “Actually, ma’am, they’re quite real.”

Customer: “Oh.” *turns to her approximately 8 year-old
son*
“Don’t eat those! They’ll make you fall asleep!”
