    Who’s Got The Power Now, Part 2

    | Auckland, New Zealand | Top

    Caller: “I don’t care what your little book says, put my f***ing power on!”

    Me: “I can’t do that for you unless you pay your debt in full, sir.”

    Caller: “Why are you being a b**** about this? Just let it slide!”

    Me: “We’ve been letting it slide for months, sir. You now owe us in excess of a thousand dollars. Our rules are very clear: we are not to reconnect your power until you pay your debt.”

    Caller: “F*** you! I’m going to kill you! I’m going to come to your house and kill you!”

    Me: “The difference between you and me, sir, is that I know where YOU live.”

    Caller: *click*

    Refund Rejects

    | Houston, TX, USA |

    (A couple returns from a theatre to get a refund on a movie they have just seen.)

    Customer: “I need my money back.”

    Manager: Which movie was it for?

    Customer:Kate and Leopold. That was the worst movie, ever!”

    Manager: “That movie just ended. I can’t give you a refund for a movie you watched all the way through.”

    Customer: “Well, if there were a roach in my food at a restaurant, I would get my money back!”

    Manager: “Not if you eat the whole meal, roach and all!”

    History And Cookbooks Are Written By The Victors

    (An older lady is looking through the buffet, when she comes to our Japanese section. She eyes the sashimi.)

    Customer: “Oh! Is this smoked salmon?”

    Me: “No ma’am, it’s actually sashimi, the Japanese way of serving fish, so it’s cleaned and served raw.”

    Customer: “Raw? That can’t be healthy! Are you sure you are allowed to serve raw fish? Someone could get sick!”

    Me: “I can assure you, raw salmon won’t get anyone sick. We have served this for years.”

    Customer: “But it’s raw! Someone will get sick! That’s what raw fish does – gets people sick!”

    Me: “Ma’am, the Japanese have been eating raw fish for centuries. I think it will be OK.”

    Customer: “Well, they also lost World War 2. I don’t think this is safe!”

    Me: “…”

    Children Should Come With A Manual… Or A Hot Line

    | Ontario, Canada |

    Me: *on the phone* “Thank you for calling ****, my name is ****. How can I assist you today?”

    Customer: “Yeah, I need some help. My son just shot my TV.”

    Me: “Excuse me?”

    Customer: “Yeah – he was playing around with a BB gun and shot the center of the TV. It’s dead. I need to know what to do.”

    Me: “Well, unfortunately, sir… that’s not something that’s covered under warranty.”

    Customer: “Oh, obviously. I know that, but I need to know what to do.”

    Me: “I can get you the number of a repair shop near you…”

    Customer: “No, I need to know what to do to my son. He shot my f***ing TV. What do I do? Ground him? Spank him?”

    Me: “… unfortunately that’s not something I can assist you with, sir.”

    Customer: “Oh. Right. Well, I thought I would try anyway.”

    Living On The Edge Of Anaphylactic Shock

    | Columbia, MO, USA |

    (A woman was looking intently at our display case of cookies.)

    Me: “Can I help you?”

    Customer: “What kind of cookies do you have?”

    Me: “Well, right now we have lemon drop and peanut butter chocolate chip.”

    Customer: “Oh, I’ll take one of each.”

    (I ring her out and she goes on her way. 20 minutes later I get a phone call.)

    Me: “Thank you for calling ****, how can I help you?”

    Customer: “Yeah, I was just in there and I bought a lemon cookie and a peanut butter chocolate chip cookie and…MY GOD I AM ALLERGIC TO NUTS, and I SWEAR I just ate a nut. Are there any nuts in these cookies?”

    Me: “…well, the peanut butter chocolate chip ones have…peanuts in them.”

    Customer: “OH MY GOD!” *hangs up*

    (Only 2 weeks later I am working again and the same woman walks into my store.)

    Customer: *looks at the cookies again* “I’ll take one of those…peanut butter chocolate chip cookies.”

    Me: “You realize that those have nuts in them, right?”

    Customer: “WHAT?! Well…what about the orange walnut cookies?”

    Me: “Those have walnuts in them.”

    Customer: “How about the coconut pecan?”

    Me: “Yeah, those have pecans in them.”

    Customer: “Well, fine. I’ll just have to have one of those white chocolate macadamia cookies then.”

    Me: “Look – really the only cookies that we have right now that DON’T have nuts are the sugar cookies.”

    Customer: “Well, those are just too boring. Never mind then!”
