  • No Good Deed Goes Unthreatened

    | Houston, TX, USA |

    (I am working for a non-profit charity. It’s right before Christmas and we’re calling our prior donors to wish them a happy holiday season and to thank them for their support.)

    Me: “Hello, this is [name] calling from [organization]. We’re contacting our prior—”

    Donor: “Don’t call this number, lady! Don’t you ever call this number again! I’ll find out where you live, drag you out of bed, and dump cold water on you. You understand? Do not ever call this number, you dumb b****!” *click*

    Bleeding For A Cause

    , | Evans, GA, USA |

    (I call people to request for them to come in and donate blood.)

    Me: “Hello! This is [name] with the blood center.”

    Male customer: “Oh, is it that time of the month again?”

    Me: *speechless*

    Male customer: “I just realized what I said.”

    You Bite It, You Buy It

    , | Clitheroe, England, UK |

    (I work in a charity shop selling used items. A customer walks up to me with a pair of gloves.)

    Customer: “Are these gloves waterproof?”

    Me: “They look it, sir.”

    Customer: “I’ll just test them out.”

    (The customer then proceeds to bite the gloves, covering them with his spit in the process, while everyone close to him looks on in horror.)

    Customer: “Yes, I’ll take these.”

    Empty Cans, Even Emptier Stomachs

    | Ontario, Canada | Religion

    (My friends and I are going door to door collecting cans for a food drive at our church.)

    Me: “Hello, we are collecting cans of food for [church]. Would you like to donate?”

    Teenage Girl: “So you guys take cans. What about pop cans?”

    Me: “No, we only take canned foods.”

    Teenage Girl: “Are you sure? I have some pop cans I don’t need.”

    Me: “No, we only accept canned foods.”

    Teenage Girl: “Okay, I’ll be right back.”

    (The girl closes the door and bangs around inside for a couple minutes. Then she opens the door with a handful of cans.)

    Teenage Girl: “Here are the cans. I grabbed some pop cans too.”

    (We look at the cans she gave us, and realize that they are all empty.)

    Teenage Girl: *to her mom* “I took out the recycling, Mom!”

    Overly Essaying The Situation

    | Atlanta, GA, USA | Crazy Requests

    Me: “What can I help you with today, sir?”

    Customer: “Well for starters, you can talk to that girl at the front desk. She made me fill out so much paperwork!”

    Me: “I’m sorry. She must have been mistaken. Can you show me the forms you were asked to complete?”

    Customer: “No. I don’t have them.”

    Me: *confused* “Where are they?”

    (The man proceeds to lead me to the front desk and gestures at the sign-in sheet where visitors are asked to write their name and zip code.)

    Customer: “This! She made me write all this!”
