(I am in my office when a user comes running to my door.)

User: “Help! Help! Help!”

Me: “What’s wrong?”

User: “Yahoo took over my Firefox!”

Me: “Wait. What? Yahoo did what?”

User: “Yahoo. It took over my Firefox! Come look!”

(We go to her desk and I sit down and launch her Firefox browser.)

User: “See! No more Firefox! It’s Yahoo.”

Me: “You still have Firefox. You just accidentally made Yahoo your homepage.”

User: “Please, just fix it!”

(The restaurant I work in offers discount vouchers when customers subscribe in the website. In this case, the voucher was 2 courses for 10. After receiving her bill, a lady comes to me and starts arguing.)

Customer: “Why is my discount £3 when the voucher is for £10?”

Me: “Ma’am, the voucher does not give you £10 off your bill. It gives you the two courses for £10.”

Customer: “No, no! The voucher says £10!”

(After explaining the promotion for nearly 10 minutes, the manager joins in to help. Finally, the customer’s friend realizes the point of the promo and explains it.)

Customer: “Oh! I see now.”

Customer’s 8 year-old son: “Mooooom, it’s time for someone to apologiiiize!”

(I am taking an order from a couple. I work in a high-end steakhouse.)

Me: “What can I get you?”

Customer: “I’ll have the ribeye. Medium-rare. Bring the steak sauce out BEFORE my steak. I don’t like to wait on someone to bring it.”

Me: “Okay. What side item would you like?”

Customer: “I’d like the apples. I want them HOT, because I want to melt butter on them. Butter YOU will bring me.”

Me: “Sir, our apples are served hot.”

Customer: “Not every time! Don’t mess with my system!”

Me: “Okay.”

Customer: “And a cup of the french onion soup. That’s all.”

Customer’s wife: “Jeez, honey. You want her to dice your onions for you soup, too?”

Customer: “You just don’t get my system!”
