History (Deep) Pans Out

| Victoria, BC, Canada | Crazy Requests, Food & Drink, History, Language & Words

(A Native Canadian customer comes into the store with five small children.)

Customer: “Why do the Deluxe and the Hawaiian pizza cost the same? One has more toppings!”

Me: “To be honest, I’m not really sure. That’s just the way the company works, I guess.”

Customer: “Well, can I get a discount for the Hawaiian, then? It has five less toppings!”

Me: “Sorry, ma’am, but I can’t do that.”

Customer: *long pause* “You’re a cruel person.”

Me: “Come again?”

Customer: “Your people come here, give diseases, kill us all, steal our land, put our children in residential schools, and now this!”

Unable To Bridge The Gap

| Nevada, USA | Tourists/Travel, Uncategorized

Customer:“Where is it?”

Me: “Where is what?”

Customer:“The bridge! The bridge over the lake.”

Me:“I’m sorry, sir, but there is no bridge over the lake.”

(The customer points to a local map.)

Customer: “There is, it’s right there! A bridge.”

Me: “Sir, that would be the state line that you are pointing at. It’s the line that separates California from Nevada. The state line.”

Customer:“Oh…so there’s no bridge?”

Some Assembly And Intelligence Required

| Ottawa, ON, Canada | Extra Stupid, Home Improvement

Me: “Hello, thanks for calling [home improvement store]. How can I help you?”

Customer: “Hi, I just had my shed delivered this morning and you people sent me the wrong size.”

Me: “Okay, just let me pull up your order here and see what may have gone wrong.”

Customer: “I don’t know how you people could have messed this up, I clearly ordered a 6×6 shed and I just measured the one you delivered and its clearly only 4×6.”

Me: “Okay, sir. Well, the type of shed we delivered only comes in a 6×6 model. Did you happen to have any parts left over when you finished building it?”

Customer: “Oh, well I haven’t actually built it yet. But I’ve measured the crate it comes in and it only measure 4×6.”

Me: “Sir, what does the label on the crate say?”

Customer: “It says 6×6. But I measured it and it’s only 4×6!”

Me: “But yesterday you were a mermaid.”

Girl: “I’m a vampire mermaid! Gaaargh!”
