Not So Sharp

Caller “Hi, I asked you to pierce my daughter’s ears earlier, but apparently you won’t do it. I think that’s unacceptable!”

(Note: the caller sounds about 14.)

Me: “Okay, I’m sorry about that. If I can just confirm some details with you, I’ll note it down and you can send her back in. Can I get her name and date of birth?”

(The caller confirms the name, and the date of birth as the 10th April 1996.)

Me: “And can I confirm your date of birth please?”

Caller “The 12th, of September, 1996.”

Me: “…1996?”

Caller *hangs up*

(An elderly customer is checking out.)

Customer: “How do I use this card?”

Me: “All you have to do is slide it through, then push the ‘debit’ button on the left.”

Customer: ”Thanks. What does ‘PIN’ mean?”

Me: “Your pin number is the number that goes with your card. You just need to enter it in and hit the green button in the corner.”

Customer: “Okay, but turn around. I don’t need you stealing my money away.”

(I think she is joking, but she stares at me until I turn around. She then states each number in her pin out loud as she pushes the buttons.)

Customer: “You didn’t peek, did you?”

Hysterically Wrong

Customer: “Please connect me to the Dental Clinic. I need a hysterectomy.”

Me: “Are you sure you want the Dental Clinic? They don’t do hysterectomies there.”
