    The Grapes Or Wrath

    | United Kingdom |

    (Note: I work at a hardware store. A customer approaches me.)

    Customer: “Do you sell grapes?”

    (I’m assuming they are some form of bolt or electrical fitting I had not heard of.)

    Me: “Um, what are they used for?”

    Customer: *looks at me like I’m an idiot* “Eating! Grapes!”

    Me: “Oh. No, this is a hardware shop.”

    Customer: *blank face* “But you used to sell fruit…”

    Me: “No, I’m pretty sure this shop has never sold any fruit.”

    Customer: “Oh.”

    (There’s a very long pause where he just stares at me.)

    Customer: “No grapes, then?”

    Me: “No.”

    Customer: “Oh.”

    No Need To Be Shirty

    | Montreal, QC, Canada |

    Me: “Can I help you with something?”

    Customer: “Yeah. I have a guy painting a room in my house, but I told him I don’t like it.”

    Me: “If you’d like another color, I can help you pick a new one.”

    Customer: “That’d be great. I have to cover up this color. It’s the most horrible, disgusting color I’ve ever seen. It looks like…it looks like…”

    (The customer looks up at me, and points.)

    Customer: “It looks like your shirt.”

    (I am speechless.)

    Customer: “Yeah, ugly like your shirt. Oh, sorry! It’s a nice shirt, I guess.”

    The Wrong Outlet For Your Problems, Part 2

    | Amsterdam, The Netherlands | Extra Stupid, Home Improvement

    (A customer is returning an electrical outlet with a remote control, and is complaining that the remote didn’t work.)

    Customer: “I tried everything, made the right adjustments, but no matter what I do, the light that is supposed to blink on the remote does nothing.”

    Me: “Let me have a look at this remote.”

    Customer: “I’m also fairly certain that the outlets themselves are not working.”

    (While he says that, I open up the remote control, and take out the battery.)

    Me: “Have you tried unwrapping the plastic from the battery before inserting it?”

    Customer: “You’re kidding, right? Even I wouldn’t be that stupid!”

    (I unwrap the battery before him. His mouth falls open, and he makes a face palm.”

    Customer: “No! This is not true!”

    (I insert the unwrapped battery in the remote control, and try it. The light now blinks as it’s supposed too.)

    Me: “It appears to be working now.”

    Customer: “I think I’m going to try the outlets at home. Maybe they work now, too.”

    Higher Than A Helicopter

    | Massachusetts, USA | Bizarre

    Customer: “I need to make a copy of this key because the police need to use this one in an investigation.”

    Me: “Ma’am, this key is broken clean in half. I don’t think I can copy this.”

    Customer: “Well you see, the police are investigating into the helicopters and I need another key.”

    Me: “The helicopters?”

    Customer: “Yes, yes. They break into my car.” *picking up a flashlight from the checkout counter* “Oh! I wonder if this flashlight is helicopter proof.”

    Me: “Uh…I don’t know to be honest.”

    Customer: “Well. The helicopters always make things stop working suddenly.”

    (She clicks the flashlight on and off until suddenly it no longer turns on.)

    Customer: “Ah, there. Not helicopter proof. They’re in my veins, you know.”

    It Also Adds Money This Way

    | Michigan, USA | At The Checkout, Money

    Me: “Will this be credit or debit?”

    Customer: “Credit.”

    (I notice she has the card facing the wrong way.)

    Me: “Alright, you just need to turn the card around.”

    Customer: “Does that make it run as credit, then?”
