(I’m a customer and am looking at dining tables. I’m an obvious Muslim as I wear a hijab. Another customer sees me with my son in a stroller and walks over.)

Another customer: “I thought you people couldn’t use electronics?”

Me: “That’s the Amish. And a stroller isn’t electronic.”

Another customer: “Oh…” *walks off*

Me: “Front desk, how may I help you?”

Customer: “Where is the bathroom!?”

Me: “Are you referring to the lobby bathroom? That’s just down the hall from your room on the right side, towards the lobby.”

Customer: “No! I mean the bathroom in my room! It doesn’t have one!”

Me: “I can assure you it does, sir. Have you tried opening the door that you didn’t enter your room through?”

Customer: “Oh sh**! I thought that lead to another room.” *click*

Customer: “Excuse me, miss. How many megapickles does this camera have?”

Me: “You mean megapixels? This one has 12.1.”

(I am giving a tour in a residence hall.)

Parent of student: “Are boys and girls allowed in the same room?”

Me: “No, the genders here are separated by floor or sides of the building.”

Parent of student: “No, I mean can they sleep in the same room? In the same bed?”

Me: “We are not a religious university. We don’t have any rules against it.”

Parent of student: “Will I be notified if my daughter is having intercourse?”

(Back when they were common technology, we sent out a software update on four floppy disks.)

Customer: “The computer says it’s unable to read disk two.”

Me: “Can we start the installation again just to check it is the disk that is the problem, please? Put the disk in the drive and type ‘a:update’. Then, press enter.

Customer: “Okay. It says it’s unable to read disk one now.”

Me: “I’m sorry. Did you try that with disk one or two?”

Customer: “Both.”

Me: “No, sorry. Just then, not earlier. Was the disk in the drive disk one, or two?”

Customer: “Both. Both disks are in the drive. Why? Was I supposed to take the first one out before putting the second one in? It didn’t say to do so, just to insert disk 2.”

Me: “You’ve got two disks in the drive at the same time? That must’ve been difficult to manage.”

Customer: “Not when you hit the second one with an encyclopedia.”
