Perhaps It’s Because You Drive A Hummmvee

| New York, USA | Uncategorized

(I have a sticker on my car that reads “Caution: Driver Singing”. I pulled up into work when a customer tapped me on the shoulder.)

Customer: “Hey.”

Me: “Um, hi?”

Customer: “I thought so! You’re that girl with the singing bumper sticker, aren’t you?”

Me: “Oh! Yes, I am.”

Customer: “I passed you in the parking lot at yesterday. You weren’t singing.”

Me: “Oh, well, I’ve had a sore throat.”

Customer: *completely serious* “You should always be singing, you know.”

Me: “Um…”

Customer: “In a car like that, you should always be singing so your sticker doesn’t lie!”

Me: “Well, the other day when you passed me? I was humming.”

Customer: *perfectly happy again* “Oh, really? Well, that’s alright then!”

Yukon Spend It

| British Columbia, Canada | Uncategorized

Me: “Okay, your total is $189.14. Cash or credit?”

Customer: “Cash.” *hands me $200 American*

Me: “Oh, I’m sorry. We don’t accept US currency.”

Customer: “Why not?”

Me: “Because this is Canada.”

Customer: “Last time I was in Canada I used American cash.”

Me: “Well, sir, that place probably accepted different currencies. I can only accept Canadian.”

Customer: “I don’t have any! I only have Visa.”

Me: “We accept Visa.”

Customer: “Wait! Let me get this straight: you won’t accept my American cash, but you’ll accept an American credit card?”

Me: “Yes.”

(He throws the card at me. I swipe it through and he gathers his bags.)

Customer: “This is ridiculous. When did Canada get its own currency, anyway?”

Always Right, Unless There’s Not Enough Light, Part 2

| Sacramento, CA, USA | Uncategorized

Me: “Hello there, sir. How can I help you?”

Customer: “I’m looking for batteries for this calculator.”

Me: “Okay, but just so you know, that calculator doesn’t really need batteries. It has little solar panels right on the front that power it.”

Customer: “Solar panels? I want to use this calculator indoors!”

Your Stupidity Has No Match

| Springfield, MO, USA | Uncategorized

Me: “Hello, how can I help you today?”

Customer: “Yes, I wanted to take advantage of your price match policy on this refrigerator.”

(He hands me copy of competitor’s ad with said refrigerator.)

Me: “Okay, do you have your receipt?”

Customer: “No.”

Me: “That’s okay, I can look it up.”

(After utilizing several different ways to look up a receipt, I still haven’t found one.)

Me: “Ma’am, I’m having a hard time finding your receipt and without that, I can’t give you your money.”

Customer: “I haven’t bought the refrigerator from you.”

Me: “Oh! Ok, so you want to purchase it and match the price?”

Customer: “No! I purchased the refrigerator from [competitor’s store] and you have it cheaper, so I want you guys to pay me the difference.”

Me: “So, let me get this straight. You bought a refrigerator from [competitor’s store] and we have it cheaper here, so you want me to give you money for a fridge that you didn’t purchase from here, and have no intentions of purchasing from here?”

Customer: “Right! Your price match plus guarantee!”

Me: “Ma’am, in order for us to give you the difference, you would have had to purchase the item from our store.”

Customer: “That’s false advertising! You have to give me the money! I’m going to sue!”

Me: “Ma’am, unfortunately we can’t just give you money for something you didn’t purchase from us.”

Customer: “Why not?”

Me: “Well, we wouldn’t make any money then and the company would go out of business.”

Customer: “Like that’s my fault!” *storms out of store*
