    No. Duh.

    | Ontario, Canada |

    (I work at a bookstore; this happens almost daily)

    Customer: “Excuse me, where is your gardening section?”

    Me: “Over there.”

    Customer: “I mean gardening BOOKS.”

    Overuse Of The Discrimination Card

    | Ontario, Canada |

    Customer: “Do you have any maps of South Africa?” (We’re in Ontario, Canada.)

    Me, having a look: “No, it seems we don’t. Your best bet will be online or to wait till you get there.”

    Customer: “But you have maps of everywhere else! I looked in the computer and it said you had them!”

    Me: “Did we have any in stock?”

    Customer: “You have maps of places all over the states, but not South Africa.”

    Me: “I guess there’s more interest cause people can drive there.”

    Customer: “This is discrimination! I want a map of South Africa.”

    Me: “Let me go check the computer again.” *runs*

    TMI (Too Much Information)

    , | Ireland |

    (I was working on the customer service desk and answered a call from a customer inquiring about a special order they had placed)

    Customer: “Yes my name is ****. The name of the DVD is ‘Spring Break’.”

    (I put the customer’s details into the computer, and the search results say the full name of the DVD was “Spring Break Sex Riot” which also had an…. explicit cover on it. I assumed that there must have been a mistake and the wrong title was ordered)

    Me: “Um……. I think I found your order here on the system, but it hasn’t arrived in the store yet. I think there might be a mistake here–could you give me some more details about the film?”

    Customer: “Ah man, you’re missing out!! You have to see it!! Its about all these hot chicks who go on spring break and have lots of sex! Its excellent!”

    Me: *glad I have never been this desperate*

    Belaboring The Obvious

    | Ottawa, Canada |

    Customer: “Hi, I’m looking for a book.”

    Me: “Yeah, I know. You called a bookstore.”

    BA BA BEE DA DUM DUM BAAA!

    | USA | Top

    Customer: “Yeah, my son really likes this one band that has a really popular song out right now.”

    Me: “Okay…”

    Customer: “Well, I don’t know the name of their album, their band name, or the name of the song but the tune is like this: ‘ba ba bee da dum dum baaa.’”

    Me: “…”

    Customer: *not very happy with me* “Do you have any clue what I’m talking about?”

    Me: “Ma’am, I’m sorry but we can’t really look up ‘ba ba bee da dum dum baaa’ in our computer.”

    Customer: “Don’t be a smart a** with me, missy.”

    Me: *trying not to laugh* “Ma’am, I’m not trying to be a smart a**, I’m just saying there isn’t really any way I can help you unless you have some information I can look up.”

    Customer: *yelling* “NEVER IN MY LIFE HAVE I EVER BEEN TREATED SO DISRESPECTFULLY AT SOME BULLS*** BOOK STORE! EVERY TIME I COME HERE YOU AND YOUR CO-WORKERS ACT AS IF IT’S SUCH A CHORE TO HELP CUSTOMERS!”

    Me: *trying really hard not to laugh* “Would you like me to call my manager?”

    Customer: “YES!”

    (I page my manager, which we have several but I lucked out and got the good one)

    Rad manager: *irritated because she was busy* “Is there a problem?”

    Customer: “Yes, the…”

    Rad manager: “No, I wasn’t talking to you.”

    Customer: “Well!”

    Me: “She wants me to look up a song using only the tune.”

    Rad manager: *laughs*

    Customer: *again, yelling* “IS IT SO HARD TO ASK FOR A LITTLE HELP OR DO YOU NOT OFFER THAT FOR FREE? ALL I NEED FROM YOU IS THE BAND NAME THAT SINGS THAT ONE SONG THAT GOES LIKE THIS, ‘BA BA BEE DA DUM DUM BAAA’! IT ISN’T THAT HARD TO FIGURE IT OUT!”

    Me: “So go home and figure it out and give us a call.”

    Customer: “I will never shop here again! I’m taking my business to Barnes & Noble!”

    Rad manager and I: “Okay. Bye.”
