    Me: “I’m sorry for any problems you had sir. How can I help you today?”

    Customer: “Are you a computer? You sound like a d*** computer!”

    Me: *sarcastically* “Well I’m part computer sir, my mother was a computer.”

    Me: “Yes sir, I am a cyborg.”

    Customer: “F***ing cyborgs!” *click*

    Me: Thank you for calling ***, X speaking how may I…

    Client: *thick accent* “Yes, hello? Are you there?”

    Me: “Yes?”

    Caller: “I just tried purchase insurance.”

    Me: “Ok?”

    Caller: “It said error.”

    Me: “Ok, what else does it say?”

    Caller: “Just error.”

    Me: “Well, that can be anything. Normally it says more specific details. Is there anything else it says?”

    Caller: “I think it has something to do with the beneficiary part.”

    Me: “You mean for the life insurance portion?”

    Caller: “Yes. I put myself as the beneficiary for my policy, isn’t that what I’m supposed to put?”

    Me: “So, you put yourself as the person who receives the money if you die?”

    Caller: “Yes. Isn’t that right?”

    Me: *facepalm*

    Caller: “No, it’s Steven with an S, idiot!”

    | Tulsa, OK, USA |

    (Note: we deal with the airline employees.)

    Me: “Customer service, this is ***. May I have your file number?”

    (The airline employee gives his file number, and I verify his information is correct.)

    Me: “How can I help you?”

    Airline employee: “Promise you won’t laugh.”

    Me: “I’ll try, sir.”

    Airline employee: “I’m calling to report that a customer relieved himself in one of the Electronic Check-in Units. I need to ask for a tech to come out and make sure there’s no damage to the computer.”

    Me: “Oh my gosh, of course. Where in the airport is the machine?”

    Airline employee: “It’s near Gate 27. We call it Irregular Operations because that’s where–no pun intended–the customers have to go to get their tickets when they’re pissed off.”

    Me: “Well, sir, I’m writing this up as being water damage that the tech will need to check out. Is there anything else I can do to help you?”

    Airline employee: “You got any Febreeze?”

    I Think We’ve Found The Problem

    , | Concord, CA, USA |

    Me: *on the phone with a customer* “I can have a repairman out there in 2 days to fix your dishwasher.”

    Customer: “Two days? TWO DAYS?! What am I going to do with the dishes in the meantime?!”

    Me: *jokingly “For $10 a day I’ll come out and wash them.”

    Customer: “Ok, great! Can I put that on my store card?”

    Me: “Um…I was just kidding, ma’am.”

    Customer: *angrily* “Let me talk to your manager!”

    (After my boss speaks with the customer, he comes over to talk to me.)

    Boss: “Did you tell the customer you would wash her dishes?”

    Me: “I was just joking!”

    Boss: “NEVER joke with a customer. Customers have NO sense of humor. None.”
