    Lights Aren’t The Only Thing A Bit Dim, Part 3

    | Amsterdam, Netherlands | Technology

    Me: “…and may I have the serial number of your [brand] product please?”

    Customer: “Well, you know, in winter it’s very dark here in Norway, so I can’t read the serial number.”

    Me: “I’m sure you can turn on the light for a moment, sir.”

    Customer: “Oh, yeah, that’s right…”

    Take Two Werewolves And Call Me In The Morning

    | New Zealand | Extra Stupid

    (I have just given a customer his prescription and am explaining to him the directions.)

    Me: “So, just take two of these with water at night.”

    Customer: “Okay, thanks. Wait, I work at night…should I take these in the day time?”

    Me: “Yes, just take them before bed.”

    Customer: “Okay, so they aren’t activated by the moon or anything?”

    Me: “No.”

    Customer: *slight disbelief* “Hmm, okay…” *turns around and leaves*

    The Great State Of Confusion

    | Michigan, USA | Tourists/Travel

    (I work at the front booth charging entry and parking fees to park visitors. Most of these visitors are tourists from Chicago. The entry fee is different for in-state and out-of-state license plates on the vehicles.)

    Me: “Hello! Welcome to [state park]. Do you have a Michigan license plate or an out of state license plate?”

    Customer: “No. No, I don’t have that.”

    Me: “Are you from Michigan or out-of-state? What is the state on your license plate?”

    (Suddenly, the customer screams loudly and throws his hands up in the air as if he were terrified.)

    Customer: “My ID! You need to see my ID? I have ID!”

    Me: “Sir, I don’t need to see your ID. I just want to know where you are from.”

    Customer: “Oh.”

    Me: “What state are you from?”

    Customer: “Chicago. The state of Chicago.”

    Not If You’re Tim Burton

    | Queens, NY, USA |

    (It is 3 weeks before Halloween. A customer walks into the gym and points at some of our decorations we’ve .)

    Member: *rudely* “What is all this for?”

    Me: “They’re our Halloween decorations.”

    Member: “Oh, okay. Because I was going to say, it’s a little early for Christmas decorations.”

    (The Christmas decorations he was referring to? Cobwebs and jack-o-lantern lights.)

    Two Halves Make A Hole In Your Brain, Part 2

    | Clyde, OH, USA |

    Customer: “I’d like a half decaf, half caffeinated skim milk latte, medium size.”

    (I make the latte with her staring at me the entire time, apparently making sure I’m making it right.)

    Me: “Here’s your half caf grande nonfat latte.”

    Customer: “You said half caf? You made the other half decaf, right?”

    Me: “Well, yes. If one half is caffeinated, then the other half has to be decaf, right?”

    Customer: “You don’t need to be smart!”

    (She walks away ticked off and complaining to her friend saying she better not be awake all night because I’m unable to make her drink correctly.)
