| New Zealand | Crazy Requests, Musical Mayhem, Uncategorized

(I work at a place that does repairs for Sony computers, stereos, cameras and the like. Hence, our store has the word ‘Sony’ in the title.)

Me: “Good morning, [company name]. How can I help you?”

Customer: “Is that Sony Music?”

Me: “No, sorry, this is Sony Repairs.”

Customer: “I’m trying to get through to Simon Cowell. He works with Susan Boyle.”

Me: “No, sorry. We repair Sony laptops.”

Customer: “So, you’re not Sony Music. Repairs are no good. Thanks.”

Customer: “Hi! I’m looking to buy an MP3 player for my daughter.”

Me: “Sure, what capacity were you looking at?”

Customer: “Hold on.”

(She takes out a sheet of paper with size specifications and a rather juvenile depiction of the device and hands it to me.)

Me: *laughs* “Aww, that’s cute! How old is your daughter?”

Customer: “Sixteen.”

Me: “Oh.”

Customer: “Oh, don’t worry! She’s a little kooky.”

Caller: “Hi I’m looking for the hounds…er hound of baskerville?”

Me: “Oh, of course. You mean the Sherlock Holmes novel?”

Caller: “Oh, my! I didn’t know Sherlock Holmes actually wrote that one!”

(A young boy, about 12, is walking around confused.)

Me: *in Norwegian* “Where are your parents?”

Child: *clearly British* “Why the heck do people here assume I speak bloody Norwegian?”

Me: *in English* “You’re in Norway.”

Child: “Oh, yeah.”
