    The Brain Is Vacant, The Room Is Not

    | Dubai, UAE | Crazy Requests, Hotels & Lodging

    (I work at the front desk of a big hotel, which is currently fully booked. One in-house guest would like to extend, but we have to decline. Finally, he comes to check out.)

    Guest: “I think that what you are doing is really rude.”

    Me: “How so, sir?”

    Guest: “I wanted to extend my stay here, but you won’t let me.”

    Me: “Yes, I am very sorry about that, but we are fully committed tonight, therefore we are not able to extend your stay. But hopefully next time, Sir.”

    Guest: “But how can you possibly sell my room when I am still in there? You should ask me before you do that, so I can decide whether to stay or not.”

    Me: “…”

    I’ve Got A Good Fee-ling About This

    | Worcester, MA, USA | Bad Behavior, Money

    (I am the treasurer of a small church. I notice that we are paying a fee for every check we write. I thought maybe the bank might waive the fee for a church, so I call.)

    Me: “Hi, my name is [My Name], and I’m with [Church]. I was wondering if the bank would waive the fee we are paying on the checks we write, being a church and all?”

    Branch Manager: “Gee, I don’t know. I’ve never been asked this before. Let me call down to the main office and see what they say.”

    (30 minutes later, my phone rings. It’s the branch manager, but he thinks he is calling his main office.)

    Branch Manager: “Hi, this is [Branch Manager] at the Edgewood office. I just got a call from a customer asking if we ever waive the fee for checks because they are a church?”

    Me: *thinking fast* “Well, policy is that they must pay, but if they ask, we waive it.”

    Branch Manager: “Okay, thanks.”

    (10 minutes later, the phone rings again. This time the branch manager is actually calling me.)

    Branch Manager: “Hi, this is [Branch Manager]. I talked with the main office and they said we could waive the fee. I’ll adjust your next statement.”

    Me: “That’s great, thank you.”

    (If she questioned what had just happened, she was never going to call the main office or the customer about it.)

    Let Your Hate Flow


    A Sudden Change In Attitude

    , | USA | Uncategorized

    (I’m taking money in the drive-thru.)

    Me: “Hello, sir, your total was $10.03.”

    Customer: *shoves a stack of bills in my hands* “That’s 11.”

    Me: “All right.” *I proceed to count the bills*

    Customer: “What are you doing? You don’t need to count them! I told you there were 11, so just type in 11 and give me my change!”

    Me: “Sir, I have to check to see how much money you handed me. Even if you tell me I still have to count it.”

    Customer: That’s bulls***! How can you be so distrusting? I’m not trying to scam you. If I say I gave you 11, then I gave you 11 dollars! God, you’re so rude. I can’t believe this.”

    Me: “I’m sorry sir. Here’s $1.97 for your change.”

    Customer: “Wait, what?”

    Me: “You gave me 12. Not 11. That’s why I count everyone’s money. More often than not, people give me too much money by accident.”

    Customer: “Oh… yeah. Thanks, I guess.”

    (That wasn’t the first time I’ve had this conversation, and I’m sure it won’t be the last.)

    Pink Alert!

    | Canada | Health & Body

    (I’m working as a cashier at a clothing store. A customer brings up his purchase, and I begin to ring it through and fold it.)

    Customer: “Do you have any hand sanitizer back there?”

    Me: “Yes, you’re welcome to use some if you’d like.”       

    Customer: “Oh, no thanks, but you should probably use some. I have pink eye and I hear it’s somewhat contagious.”

    Me: “…”
