    Acting Disorderly

    | Madison, WI, USA | Food & Drink, Uncategorized

    Me: “Are you ready to order?”

    Customer: “No, we’re not ready to order yet.”

    Me: “Okay, I’ll come back later.”

    (I start to walk away.)

    Customer: “Hey! Aren’t you going to ask us what we want to eat?”

    Me: “I’m sorry, I thought you said you didn’t want me to take your order yet.”

    Customer: “Well, I don’t really care what order you ask us in. I just want my food!”

    May Also Cancel Brain Waves

    | St. Cloud, MN, USA | Musical Mayhem, Uncategorized

    (I am helping a customer looking at headphones. He reads one of the tags out loud.)

    Customer: “Black noise canceling headphones. There’s such a thing as black noise?”

    Me: “Sir, those are the color of the headphones.”

    Customer: “Oh, because I’ve heard of that white noise, are you sure it doesn’t just cancel the black noise?”

    For Ditzy Customers, Please Press 2

    | Ontario, Canada | Technology, Uncategorized

    (I am calling a customer to let them know that their order is in.)

    Me: “May I please speak with Mrs.***?”

    Customer: “Speaking.”

    Me: “Hi there, this is Sarah, I’m calling from [store] to let you know that your order is in, and you can come pick it up anytime.”

    *long pause*

    Me: “Hello?”

    Customer: “Oh! I’m sorry. I thought you were a recording!”

    Not So Mellow Jello

    | Wood Dale, IL, USA | Family & Kids, Uncategorized, Underaged

    Me: “That will be $*.** for 3 packs of jello. Will there be anything else for you today?”

    Customer: “No, no thank you. My granddaughter is turning 21!”

    Me: “How nice! Are these for her party?”

    Customer: “She is having a party tonight and asked me to buy her jello so she could have jello shots. I’m so glad she is not drinking and instead just having jello. I must have raised her right!”

    Store Of The D***ed

    | Atlanta, GA, USA | Religion, Uncategorized

    Me: “Hi, how can help you today?”

    Customer: “Are you a lesbian!?”

    Me: “Excuse me?”

    Customer: “You’ve got real short hair. I heard that women with short hair are lesbians.”

    Me: “So, was there anything I could help you with?”

    Customer: “You can answer my question! Are you a lesbian or not?!”

    Me: “Sir, I don’t feel it’s appropriate for me to answer that.”

    Customer: “I don’t want some hell-bound homosexual near me! God will strike you down for disobeying his word!”

    Me: “Okay, okay. If you really must know, no I am not a lesbian.”

    Customer: “Then why do you have short hair??”

    (By this time, my manager, who is male-to-female transgender, walks over.)

    Manager: *in their manly voice* “Is there a problem here, sir?”

    Customer: “Oh dear lord! You’re not a woman!”

    Manager: “Only on paper, sir.

    Customer: *runs out screaming* “This place is d***ed! D***ed I tell you!”
