    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!”

    Celebrity Begins At Home

    | Daytona Beach, FL, USA | Crazy Requests

    (I am taking calls for a charity.)

    Me: “Thank you for calling [charity]. Are you calling this evening to make a donation?”

    Caller: “Sure I will, but I want to talk to on of the famous people first.”

    Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am, but that isn’t possible. However, if I take your donation, I’m sure that they will be grateful.”

    Caller: “Well what row are you in? Can you wave to me?”

    Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am, but I’m not on TV. I’m in a call center that handles the excess calls from generous people like yourself.”

    Caller: “Well just get up and tap [celebrity] on the shoulder! I’m sure he wouldn’t mind taking my call!”

    Me: “Ma’am, I’m afraid I’m not in the studio at the moment.”

    Caller: “Well, I’ll just call back I’m sure the next person will know some one famous! You should stop hogging all the famous people!”
