    Signs Our Educational System Is Going South

    | Tel Aviv, Israel | Extra Stupid

    Me: “Thank you, have a nice day.”

    Customer: “That’s an interesting accent. Where are you from?”

    Me: “South Africa.”

    Customer: “Where’s that?”

    Me: “In Africa.”

    Customer: “Where’s Africa?”

    We Call Them Magic Voice Boxes

    | Buffalo, NY, USA | Technology

    (A customer comes in to return a phone she bought in June. Our store has a strict 30 day return policy on electronics and it is now September. I explain this to the customer and she leaves, only to return a few minutes later.)

    Customer: “You said it was 30 days for electronics, but this is a phone.”

    Me: “A phone is an electronic device.”

    Customer: “Really? I didn’t know that.”

    Me: “The policy is actually for all items from the electronics department. Even a TV stand would have a 30 day return period.”

    Customer: “Oh, okay.” *walks away shaking head* “I didn’t know phones were electronic.”

    Touch Of A Racist

    | Northglenn, CO, USA | Top

    Customer: “Where’s that toaster made? China?”

    Me: “Yes, sir, it’s made in China. Why do ask?”

    Customer: “I knew it! You should be ashamed of yourself, selling dirty merchandise!”

    Me: “Dirty? It’s never been used.”

    Customer: “The orientals touched it. It’s dirty.”

    Me: “Sir, I’m Chinese. I shook your hand when you walked in the door.”

    Customer: “S***!”

    These Aren’t The Games You’re Looking For

    | Pine City, MN, USA |

    (This takes place in the video games aisle. I ask a confused looking female customer if she needs help.)

    Customer: “Is this Star Wars?” *points to Thor for Wii*

    Me: “No, that’s Thor.”

    Customer: “Oh, how about this?” *points to Tron for 360*

    Me: “No, that’s Tron.”

    Customer: “Oh, what’s that about?”

    Me: “It’s based on the movie Tron, from Disney.”

    Customer: “Oh, no, I don’t think so. What’s that?” *points to Portal 2 for 360*

    Me: “That’s Portal 2.”

    Customer: “Looks like Star Wars!”

    The High Truth

    | Davenport, IA, USA |

    (I’m busy cleaning the TV displays in the electronics section when a middle-aged customer approaches me.)

    Customer: “Hey, can you tell me where the bottle brushes are?”

    Me: “Sure, they’re over in the infants section.”

    (I give him instructions on how to get there and even point it out as I’m the only one in my department and cannot leave my post.)

    Customer: “I don’t have kids. Just so you know, it’s not for that.”

    Me: “Oh, okay.”

    Customer: “I just need the brush to clean out my bong.”
