October Theme Of The Month: Halloween!

Not Remotely Intelligent

, | Texas, USA | Top

Me: “Hello, thank you for calling ***. May I have your phone number, please?”

Caller: “This thing doesn’t f***ing work!”

Me: “Sir, I’ll be happy to help you with that.”

Caller: “Just help me with this f***ing thing!”

(Eventually, I find out he needs help with a DVD remote.)

Caller: “The movie doesn’t play! It doesn’t do a f***ing thing!”

(I hear the crunching of plastic as he tries to push the buttons really hard.)

Me: “Okay, sir, so you’re pressing the play button and it’s not working. Correct?”

Caller: “Which one’s the play button?”

Me: “The one that says ‘play’ above it. It should be in the shape of an arrow that’s pointing to the right.”

Caller: “I can’t read any of this s***! I don’t have anything like that. There’s just one that points to the left.”

Me: “Sir, go ahead and turn the remote around.”

Caller: “What, backwards?”

Me: “Yes, so that the other side points at the DVD player.”

Caller: “Oh…it works now!” *click*

Why Husbands Should Play Boy The Rules

| Pittsburgh, PA, USA | Uncategorized

Me: “Hello, may I speak to Mr. ***?”

Wife: “He’s in the shower, may I ask what this is about?”

Me: “I’m just calling to find out if he would like to renew a magazine subscription.”

Wife: “What magazine?”

Me: “Playboy, ma’am.”

Wife: “Just a second.”

(I can hear the shower in the background.)

Wife: *sweet voice* “Honey! Someone is calling to see if you want to renew a magazine.”

Husband: “Which one?”

Wife: *slightly homicidal voice* “Playboy…”

Husband: “Uh…no, I don’t think I’ll renew that.”

(The wife picks up phone again; her sweet voice is back.)

Wife: “No, thank you. I don’t think we’ll be needing that one anymore!”

You’ve Got The Wrong(est) Number

| Chatsworth, CA, USA | Top

(Note: our customer support number is close to a local driving school’s number.)

Me: “Thank you for calling. How may I help you?”

Customer: “How much for my daughter?”

Me: “Um…”

Customer: “She’s 16. It’s her first time. She needs training.”

Me: “Sir, I think you want the driving school.”

Customer: “Oh, what do you guys do?”

18 And Blunder

| Montreal, Canada | Top

Me: “Hello, this ***. How may I help you?”

Customer: “Hi, I have your company name on my credit card bill with a charge of $29.99. I’ve never heard of you guys.”

Me: “Okay, sir…there’s a purchase of a monthly subscription to our adult website in here.”

Customer: “Adult website? What, as in porno?”

Me: “That’s correct, sir.”

Customer: “This is nonsense! I’ve never bought any porn!”

Me: “Sir, we do have the order in your info in here. If you are not satisfied with the content, however, we can give you a refund.”

Customer: “I never ordered any porn! This is an outrage! I’m a married man, a father and a family man!”

Me: “You said family man, sir?”

Customer: “Yes!”

Me: “How old is your son, sir?”

Customer: *long pause* “I’ll call you back.” *click*

The Mother Of All Excuses

| Boise, ID, USA | Uncategorized

Caller: *crying* “I need an emergency credit on my account! My mom’s been in a car wreck and I can’t call the hospital because I don’t have any time on my phone.”

Me: “I’m so sorry to hear that your mom’s been in an accident. Let me look at your account to see if we can put a one time courtesy credit on there.”

(I see that there have been $30 in credits given over the last month. I also notice her mother has been missing, dying, dead, beat up by a drunk boyfriend, stabbed, shot, and taken to the hospital because of a drug overdose. And now, she has been injured in a car wreck.)

Me: “I’m sorry, but I can’t put the credit on your account. You’ve received several courtesy credits in the past, and as per corporate policy we’re not allowed to give you any more.”

Caller: “But my mom’s in the hospital! She might die!”

Me: “I know how this kind of situation can be really rough on someone. Maybe a friend of yours will let you use their phone?”

Caller:“So you’re not going to put any money on my account?”

Me: “I’m sorry, but your account is not eligible for any further credits.”

Caller: “F*** you, b****!” *hangs up*
