  • Armageddon Shopping List: Holy Water, Crucifix, Tic Tac

    | Boston, MA, USA |

    (I was working at the express lane one Sunday morning, and this family comes in. Keep in mind that they look like something straight out of the Beverly Hillbillies. So they purchase a few things, and their total comes up to $6.66.)

    Customer: *looks at total in horror and points to son* “Quick, get some candy, gum, anything!”

    (His son then proceeds to throw a box of Tic Tacs at me.)

    Customer: “I will not have the Devil’s number as my total!”

    Me: “Thank you sir, have a nice day!”

    Hulk Smash Weasel Customer

    | Northville, MI, USA |

    Me: “Thank you for calling ******, my name is Ken. How may I help you today?”

    Customer: “Do you guys make custom deep dish pizza’s?”

    Me: “If by ‘custom’ you mean like a chef’s choice, then yes, we do.”

    Customer: “And how much is that?”

    Me: “Well, a regular sized deep dish, with tax included, will come to $18.01. With that, you get a choice of three toppings.”

    Customer: “Great, then gimme a pizza with half pepperoni, sausage, and mushrooms. On the other half I want roasted veggies, bacon, and spinach.

    Me: “Okay sir, now I must warn you that your new total comes to $24.37 because you have six items total.”

    Customer: “What? No, I have three items on each side. Therefore, I should be fine.”

    Me: “Sir, I do apologize for the misunderstanding. While it is true that you have three items on each side, the items are on ONE whole pizza. So, we have to charge you for the three extra toppings.”

    Customer: “Now listen here! One regular deep dish is equal to two individuals, correct?”

    Me: “Yes, but–”

    Customer: “HEY, Shut up for a second! Now, two individuals are equal to one regular. CORRECT?”

    Me: “Yes sir, it is.”

    Customer: “Now using this logic, I should get my pizza for the price of two individuals.”

    Me: “Sir, as much as I would like to agree with you, I simply can’t–”

    Customer: “Let me see your manager. It’s obvious I can’t reason with you.”

    (My manager comes up to deal with the situation. I walk away from the scene to seat some guests, when I hear…)

    Manager: “HEY, 3+3=6, YOU HAVE 6 TOPPINGS, SO YOU OWE $24.37! HAVE A NICE DAY!”

    (The guy quietly paid for his food and walked out like someone just threatened his life!)

    Why It Pays To Listen

    | Jyväskylä, Finland |

    (A customer reserved an expensive feather blanket a week before, and it was on sale when he came to pick it up.)

    Customer: “This blanket is on sale!” *waves his reserve slip*

    Me: “Yes it is, sir.”

    Customer: “I’m not taking it, since I have to pay double the price!”

    Me: “You automatically get the discount even though your reservation slip says the price is higher.”

    Customer: “I’m not paying the full price for this blanket!”

    Me: “Sir, you don’t have to. You get the discount.”

    Customer: “Are you a f***ing idiot? I’m not paying the full price! It’s on sale, and I’m only paying the sale price!”

    Me, trying not to laugh: “Sir, I’ve been trying to tell you that our system will automatically sell it for the sale price.”

    Customer: “You don’t get it! Let me speak to your manager!”

    (I call the manager, and after about 5 minutes of this, he and I finally got the customer to believe he was getting his blanket for the sale price. We laughed a good ten minutes after the guy had left.)

    I Sense A Schism

    | Gulfport, MS, USA |

    (I work for a bookstore that sells bibles. We get a lot of interesting customers that call…)

    Me: “***, how may I help you?”

    Customer: “Do you have the book of Chronicles?”

    Me: “Do you want a commentary for it?”

    Customer: “No. You know, the book of Chronicles that they talk about in the bible. Do you have that?”

    Me: “…”

    Customer: “Have you ever read a bible?”

    Me: “Yes, I have…”

    Customer: “Well, I’m looking for the book of Chronicles.”

    Me: “Let me search our computer system and see if I can find something.” *I pretend to search the computer* “The only thing I can find is the actual books in the bible called first and second Chronicles.”

    Customer: “Do y’all have that in the store? Where’s it at?”

    (I pull a bible off the shelf and tell him the exact location of the books.)

    Customer: “I’ve never seen that in any of my bibles.”

    Me: “Sir, these two books have been in here for over 2,000 years.”

    Customer: “Not in any bible I’ve read!”

    (After the customer finally hung up, I asked my manager to shoot me.)

    Because “Free” Is One Letter Away From “Fee”

    | Virginia, USA |

    Me: “Thank you for calling tech support. May I help you?”

    Customer: “How do you fix Debian?”

    Me: “Depends on what the problem is. What are some of the issues you’re having?”

    Customer: “I paid $700 for it! It should work PERFECTLY!”

    Me: “Ma’am, Debian is free. If you paid $700 for it, all that means is that you’re an idiot.”

    Customer: “Really?”

    Me: “Yep. Anything else I can do for you?”

    Customer: *click*
