    As The Price Decreases, So Does Brain Cell Count

    | Minneapolis, MN, USA |

    Customer: “I have a coupon here that says 25% off. What does that mean?”

    Me: “It means you get 25% off.”

    Customer: “Huh?”

    Me: “You will get 25% off your total price.”

    Customer: “I don’t understand. Why does it say that?”

    Me: “It’s a discount. They’ll give you a cheaper price.”

    Customer: “Huh? This coupon doesn’t make sense.”

    Me: “When you give your coupon to the attendant, they’ll take 25% off your ticket price.”

    Customer: “I don’t have a coupon.”

    Me: “…”

    By Doing Nothing, The Problem Solves Itself

    | Minneapolis, MN, USA |

    Customer: *on the phone* “I’m turning you in for mail fraud! I don’t want any more of your stuff!”

    Me: *checking* “OK, you were already taken off the list a few weeks ago.”

    Customer: “Well, I don’t want your magazine!”

    Me: “I’ll need to transfer you to the magazine department so they can cancel that for you.”

    Customer: “I don’t get the magazine!”

    Me: “So you’re only getting DVDs, then?

    Customer: “I haven’t gotten any DVDs!”

    Me: “So…what are you getting from us?”

    Customer: “Nothing!”

    Me: “OK…then I guess you’re all set…”

    Customer: “OK!” *hangs up*

    Unhappily Ever After

    | Maryland, USA |

    Caller: “I want to check the status of my form to withdrawal my account.”

    Me: “I’m sorry Sir, but you gave conflicting information on the form. In the section where it asked if you were married, you marked both ‘Yes’ and ‘No’.’

    Caller: “…and?”

    Me: “Well, sir, that is conflicting information, so it was kicked out of the system.”

    Caller: “So, what should I mark?”

    Me: “Well, are you married or not?”

    Caller: “I’m married… but I don’t like her.”

    Me: “It sounds like you’re separated, but just to check, are you legally married?”

    Caller: “Yes, but I don’t feel like I’m married.”

    Me: “If you aren’t legally divorced, you’ll need to mark that you are married.”

    Caller: “But I don’t LIKE her!”

    Me: “9-1-1, police, fire, or ambulance?”

    Caller: “Help, please God, help!”

    Me: “Sir, what’s the emergency?”

    Caller: “Someone’s trying to break into my house! Please, send the cops!”

    Me: “Calm down… the police are well on the way as we are talking.”

    Caller: “I don’t want to die! Oh my God, why me?”

    Me: “Sir, take a deep breath. Do you know this person?”

    Caller: “Yeah, I ordered some pizza, I paid, and he gave it to me. I can see through the window it’s him… he’s pounding on my door trying to get in! Where are the cops?!”

    Me: “Sir, I’ll stay on the phone with you if it makes you feel safer. Can you yell what he wants?”

    Caller: “Okay…” *yells toward the door* “What do you want, man?!”

    Pizza guy: *faintly, behind the door* “You forgot your change!”

    My Biggest And Loudest Fan

    | Florida, USA | Top

    (I worked for a university, calling alumni to ask for donations.)

    Alumnus: *on the phone* “Do they monitor your calls there?”

    Me: “Sometimes. That’s how they evaluate me.”

    Alumnus: “Are they monitoring this call right now?”

    Me: “I’m not sure; it’s at random times to keep me on my toes.”

    Alumnus: “Well, just in case – SHE’S DOING A GREAT F***ING JOB, BIG BROTHER!”
