October Theme Of The Month: Halloween!

What’s In A Name

| Cincinnati, OH, USA | Uncategorized

Customer: “Excuse me, do you sell christmas trees?”

Me: “Yes, we do in the Garden Center.”

Customer: “Thanks…”

(A few minutes later, the customer returns.)

Customer: “I can’t seem to find them.”

Me: “Okay, I’ll show you where they are.”

(I leads to Garden Center and points out section donated to the trees.)

Me: “They’re right there, ma’am.”

Customer: “No, you’re wrong. Those are evergreens! I want a Christmas Tree!”

Me: “Ma’am, evergreens are Christmas trees.”

Customer: “No, they’re different! I want a Christmas tree, not some stupid evergreen!”

Me: “Ma’am, they are the same.”

Customer: “No, they are not! Christmas trees stay green all year round, and evergreens lose their leaves!”

Male To Female Adapter

Me: “Hi what can I do for you?”

Customer: “Um…. I need some… *whispers* tampons?”

Me: “Excuse me?”

Customer: “Some tampons please.”

Me: “I’m sorry ma’am, I think you have the wrong store.”

Customer: “No, I don’t. My husband told me to come here and get them!”

Me: “Ma’am, I’m sorry. We don’t sell those here.”

Customer: “But you have to. He said he got some here last week.”

(I realize she probably means tapcons, which are masonry screws.)

Me: “Do you mean tapcons?”

Customer: “Yeah, that could be it. I don’t know why he told me to get tampons. That doesn’t make any sense.”

All Signs Point To Duh, Part 2

| Lexington, KY, USA | Uncategorized

Customer: “I need to return these flowers. They died.”

Me: “This appears to be a bag of soil.”

Customer: “Well, I pulled them up a week ago, I guess they fell apart.”

Me: “Okay. I’ll just need your original receipt.”

Customer: “I don’t have a receipt.”

Me: “I’m sorry, but to return plants I’ll need a receipt.”

Customer: “Your signs say that you have a one-year guarantee!”

Me: “Yes, we do, but you have to keep your receipt because the price of plants changes so often.”

Customer: “I’d like to speak the a manager.”

(I call the manager of the garden center inside, and he tells the customer the exact same thing I did.)

Customer: “Well, you should really post it somewhere that you have to keep your receipt.”

Me: “It is posted in the–”

Customer: “Where? Somewhere no one can find, I bet!”

Me: “Actually, it’s posted in the garden center immediately outside the doors. It’s to the right.”

Customer: “In tiny letters, right!?”

Me: “No, the sign is about 6 feet tall. It’s also printed on the back of every receipt. I’m sorry if you missed it.”

Customer: “Well, I doubt anyone can find it. I’m shopping at [competitor] from now on!” *starts to walk away*

Me: “Sir, you left your plants.”

Customer: “I don’t need a bag of dirt!”

(The customer tries to exit through the entrance doors. They don’t open automatically from the inside.)

Me: “Sir, those doors don’t open from this side.”

Customer: “Well, they shouldn’t say ‘EXIT’ on them, then, should they?”

Me: “The door actually says ‘NO EXIT’.”

Customer: “Hmph!”

Up His Own Perineum

| Canada | Uncategorized

Me: “Hello sir, how may I help you?”

Customer: “Yeah, I’m looking for some perennials who don’t need maintenance on it.”

Me: “Well, we got a few who need very low attention, but–”

Customer: “–and I don’t want to water them! I don’t have time for that!”

Me: “Every plants need water sir, even cactus, but we–”

Customer: “And they gonna be by the pool, so they need to be waterproof, too!”

Me: “Waterproof?”

Customer: “Yeah, so the chlorine won’t affect them and they will not die!”

Me: “So you want some flowers who doesn’t need maintenance, don’t need water and that chlorine won’t kill?”

Customer: “Yep, that’s it!”

Me: “Plastic flowers gonna work?”

Customer: “Do you think I am stupid! Get me your manager!”

(I call my manager, and the customer explains everything he wants to my boss. My manager responds similarly…)

Manager: “Plastic flowers?”

Customer: “You guys don’t know anything about gardening!”

Wising Up To Dumbing Down

| Long Island, NY, USA | Uncategorized

(I’m showing a customer the difference between a few different products and the benefits of each. After a few minutes, he selects the item he wants.)

Customer: “Why are you so smart?”

Me: *jokingly* “Everyone tells me to stop, but I guess I just can’t help it!”

Customer: *completely serious* “Well, stop it! It annoys me when people are smarter than me!”

Me: *speechless*

Customer: “Kids these days!” *walks off*
