    Dummy Request

    | Fort Collins, CO, USA | Uncategorized

    (We have dummy displays set up of all the phones we sell.)

    Me: “Hello sir, can I help you with a new cell phone today?”

    Customer: “No. I’m just looking for a new battery for my phone.”

    Me: “Sorry, but we don’t carry batteries for cell phones. You might try the battery store across the street.”

    Customer: “How much to buy one of the displays?”

    Me: “Well those are just dummy phones.”

    Customer: “I know that. I just want to take the battery from it.”

    Even Vampires Don’t Want That ‘Blood’

    (This at the DVD release of the Twilight Movie, two men approach the desk. They are Caucasian.)

    Customer #1: “Hey lend me some money, I wanna buy this movie!”

    Customer #2: “Naw, get your own cash!”

    Customer #1: “C’mon, this movie got leprechauns!”

    Customer #2: “Dang, I ain’t gonna give you no cash!”

    Customer #1: “Man you spoozy!”

    Bad Parenting Is A Sticky Fingered Subject

    | San Luis Obispo, CA, USA | Uncategorized

    (I work at a self-serve frozen yogurt shop, where people get their own yogurt and toppings then pay by weight.)

    Customer: “Excuse me, you should be supervising this store. These kids are putting their fingers in the toppings. It’s not clean!”

    (I look around for a parent, but there seems to be nobody else of suitable age in the shop.)

    Me: “Are these your children?”

    Customer: “Yes, but you should be supervising them! It’s your job!”

    Not The Cream Of The Crop

    | UK | Uncategorized

    Me: “Thanks for calling [credit card company], how can I help you today?”

    Caller: “I bought my crops on Farmville using your card. I forgot to water them and they’ve all died. Am I covered on purchase protection for that?”

    Me: “Seriously?”

    Caller: “I thought you’d be like that. Thanks anyway.” *click*

    Explanations As Clear As Water

    | Ottawa, ON, Canada | Uncategorized

    Me: “Thank you for calling [Pool Store], how may I help?”

    Caller: “How much would a new pump be for my pool?”

    Me: “Have you got an in-ground or an above-ground?”

    Caller: *long pause* “I don’t know.”

    Me: “You don’t know?”

    Caller: “No! How could I?”

    Me: “Alright. Go into your back yard, and run at the pool. If you fall in, it’s probably an in-ground. If you bounce off, it’s an above-ground.”
