    Cool Bosses Make All The Difference

    , | Lewistown, PA, USA |

    Deli Customer: “I’d like the Italian, please.”

    Me: “Would you like any condiments on that? Spicy relish, oil?”

    Customer: “Yes, I’d like both, please.”

    (I finish making the hoagie and ring up the price which is now $3.20 with the extra condiments.)

    Customer: “Last time I was here, my hoagie was $2.75.”

    Me: “Actually, that’s the price of the regular Italian hoagie. Is that what you wanted instead of the Super Italian?”

    Customer: “No, I wanted the Super.”

    Me: “Well, the Super is $3.00, and with the spicy relish and oil your total comes to $3.20.”

    Customer: *angrily* “Last time it was $2.75!”

    (She walks off to the counter to pay, and complains to the assistant manager.)

    Assistant Manager: “She says she’s coming in tomorrow to complain about you to Mike (the owner).”

    Me: “Oh, great…”

    (The next day…)

    Mike: “You made sure she wanted the Super Italian?”

    Me: “Yes.”

    Mike: “And you made sure you checked that you added up the price right?”

    Me: “Yes… so what do you think?”

    Mike: “Psht, f**k her!”

    Driving While Supplemented

    | Australia |

    (While interviewing a man I had just stopped for drunk driving one night…)

    Me: “How much did you have to drink?”

    Him: “A bottle of wine and a scotch in four hours. I thought I was okay to drive.”

    Me: “Are you taking any medication?”

    Him: “Well, I just started taking those fish oil capsules.”

    Me: “The Omega 3 ones?”

    Him: “Yes, those ones.”

    Me: “Those are supposed to make you smarter.”

    Him: “Yes, they are.”

    Me: “Well, I’m sure you can get your money back for them, then.”

    Hopefully, He Doesn’t Look As Stupid As He Sounds

    | Bakersfield, CA, USA |

    Me: “Hi, how can I help you sir?”

    Customer: “Do you guys sell pallets?”

    Me: “I’m sorry, sir, but we don’t.”

    Customer: “… but there’s a whole bunch behind your store just sitting there.”

    Me: “Yes, but we reuse those. We don’t sell them.”

    Customer: “Well, is it illegal if I steal one of them?”

    Me: “Repeat what you just said to yourself.”

    Customer: *thinks for a second* “Oh.”

    It (Almost) Never Hurts To Check

    , | Baltimore, MD, USA | Top

    Customer: “Let me see that knife in the case.”

    Me: “Here ya go.”

    Customer: “I don’t think this knife is sharp enough.”

    Me: “Really? ”

    (The customer pulls the blade across his palm, slicing his hand open and spilling blood all over the floor.)

    Customer: “I guess it is.”

    Me: “Would you like some paper towels?”

    The Joy Of Sex(ism), Part 3

    | Jackson, MS, USA | Top

    (I’m a male to female transsexual working in a call center. My name is an androgynous name, so I still use the male name when greeting customers for legal reasons.)

    Me: “Thank you for calling tech support, K***y speaking. How can I help you today?”

    Sexist Caller: “You can’t help me. Get me someone who can.”

    Me: “I’m sure I can assist you sir, what is the problem today?”

    Sexist Caller: “I ain’t talking to you!”

    Me: “What’s the problem?”

    Sexist Caller: “I ain’t talking to no girl.”

    (This caused me to both be glad that my voice passes for female on the phone, but really pissed me off cause of how horrible it was…but I would have my revenge…)

    Me: “I’m terribly sorry to hear that sir, are you sure?”

    Sexist Caller: “Get me a man, God d**n it!*

    Me: “Okay sir, let me see what I can do. Please hold.”

    (I proceed to put him on hold. I then spend the next few minutes eating a snack, reading some web comics, etc. I then clear my throat, and hit the button to take him off hold.)

    Me: *with my old male voice this time* “Thank you for calling technical support, this is K***y speaking, how can I help you?”

    Sexist Caller: “Oh thank god, I though I was gonna be stuck with that b**ch.”

    Me: “Understandable sir, she’s not that good a technician.”

    Sexist Caller: “You guys got the same name, you related or something?”

    Me: “No way, thank God… ”

    (I proceeded to reinstall his operating system from where he had totally screwed it up. I got written up for this, all while the manager was laughing and apologizing that he had to do it.)
