    Say My Name, (Don’t) Say My Name

    | Pennsylvania, USA |

    (I work at a call center as a customer service representative for prepaid debit cards, payroll cards and rewards cards.)

    Me: “Thank you for calling [company]. My name is Jordan. May I have your card number, please?”

    Customer: “Jordan, huh? Like the river?”

    Me: “Yes, sir.”

    Customer: “Well, in that case, I’d love to take a swim in your river, honey.”

    Me: “Sir?”

    Customer: “Please, you don’t have to call me sir. Call me [first name].”

    Me: “Alright, [first name].”

    Customer: “Oh, I love the way you say my name. Could you say it again?”

    Me: “I beg your pardon? Is there anything I can do for you today?”

    Customer: “No, Jordan. I’m fine.”

    Me: “Okay. Well, thank you for calling [company] and you enjoy your day, sir.”

    Customer: “Now, Jordan, what did I say about that?”

    Me: “I’m sorry. I meant [first name].”

    Customer: “There we go. Thank you, Jordan. Bye bye, now!”

    When Customers Get Cheeky

    | Washington, USA |

    (I work retail and I am leading a customer to the fitting room. I usually end up walking in front of customers on the way to the back of the store and this is the conversation that takes place.)

    Customer: “May I ask you a personal question?”

    Me: “Uh, yeah, I guess.”

    Customer: “Is your butt fake?”

    Me: “Excuse me?!”

    Customer: “Your butt. Are you wearing padded underwear or do you have implants?”

    Me: “Wow…no. My butt is real, ma’am.”

    Customer: “I was just wondering, because it seems too big and perfect to be real! You go girl!”

    Me: “Thanks…”

    Fresh From The Ocean, Into Your Mouth

    | Iowa City, IA, USA | Food & Drink

    (I am a waiter in a sushi bar in Iowa.)

    Customer: “Do you guys catch your own fish?”

    It Blows Hard

    | Bismarck, ND, USA | Rude & Risque

    (I am working at the counter of a slushie shop in our mall.)

    Me: “What’s all the hustle about out there?”

    Customer: “Oh, they brought in the coolest thing this morning. It’s a hurricane stimulator!”

    Me: “A stimulator?”

    Customer: “Yes, it stimulates hurricanes! You have to try it out.”

    Me: “I’ll be sure to do that. Have a nice day!”

    Customer: “Oh, I will! That hurricane stimulated me to the max!”

    Why Woodn’t I Think Of That

    | New Jersey, USA | Extra Stupid

    Customer: “I just want a 2x4x20, please.”

    Me: “Sorry, sir, we don’t stock 2x4x20′s, but I can sell you a couple 10 foot pieces. That still covers the footage if you can make that work.”

    Customer: *completely serious* “Ah! No, kid, it doesn’t work like that! What I will do, though, is take two 10 foot pieces.”

    Me: “Brilliant idea, sir.”
