    | Texas, USA | Bigotry, Top

    (Note: I work in the firearms department and am female.)

    Me: “Hi! Thank you for call—”

    Male Caller: “I told them to get me firearms, d*** it!”

    Me: “This is the firearms department. How may I—”

    Male Caller: “FIREARMS. FI-URRR-A-HARMS! Ain’t no women in guns. Mens the
    only ones who can know anything ’bout my situation!”

    (Unfortunately, I have become used to this and hand the phone to a nearby male coworker.)

    Coworker: “Yes, sir…uh huh…well, sir for that situation you would have to talk to our ATF compliance associate. Okay…I won’t put you on hold…they are standing right here.”

    (My coworker hands the phone back to me.)

    Me: “Hi, ATF Compliance!”

    Male Caller: *click*

    Please Put Your Brain Back In The Driver’s Seat

    | Michigan, USA | Rude & Risque

    (I’m a receptionist in the service area of a car dealership. I am calling a customer to let him know his vehicle is ready for pickup.)

    Me: “Hello, sir! Just calling to let you know that your vehicle is all set.”

    Customer: “And do you come with the car? You sound like a pretty little thing.”

    Me: “Um, well, we’re open until 6 tonight, so if you want to come in and get your truck before then, that would be great.”

    Customer: “I’m a dirty old man.”

    Me: “Okay, then. Have a good day.” *hangs up*

    Blown Away By Insensitivity

    | New York, USA |

    (I am discussing with a customer why I can’t transfer him to our corporate office. They are located in Kentucky; at this time, they have had to evacuate the building for a tornado watch.)

    Customer: “You’re just trying to give me the run around!”

    Me: “Sir, they had to evacuate for a tornado!”

    Customer: “Yesterday, there was a corporate meeting. Today, there’s a tornado. What about tomorrow? A tidal wave?!”

    Me: “Sir, they had to leave. Their lives were in danger.”

    Customer: “Surely you can understand my frustration. This is ridiculous!”

    Me: “No, sir. I don’t understand your frustration. It’s a tornado.”

    Customer: “This is the worst customer service ever!” *hangs up*

    Show Me The Color Of Your Money

    | Ontario, Canada | Money

    (I work in a shoe store. Sometimes we have the same style shoe in different colors and the colors vary in prices. A customer is having a problem with the listed price.)

    Customer: “Why are the green and black shoes different in price? You should give me the price of the green one for the black one.”

    Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am, but the prices listed on the shoe are the final price. Different colors can be different prices, because they are a different shoe.”

    Customer: “You can’t have a different price for a different colored shoe! That’s racist!”
