    Getting A Word In Edgewise

    You Be Difficult, I’ll Be Ditzy

    , | Oklahoma City, OK, USA |

    Me: “It’s a great day at [furniture store]! How can I direct your call?”

    Caller: “I want to talk to someone about my furniture.”

    Me: “Okay, is it just damaged, or did you want to set up a delivery?”

    Caller: “No. I just want to talk to someone about it.”

    Me: “Um… did you want to talk to your salesperson?”

    Caller: “No. Just someone in the dining department.”

    Me: “I’m sorry ma’am, but our floor isn’t separated into departments.”

    Caller: “I bought it about 2 years ago. I just want to talk about it.”

    Me: “Did you want to talk about it with a manager?”

    Caller: “No.”

    Me: *stops caring* “Well, I would LOVE to talk about with you! Is it pretty?!”

    Caller: “What?”

    Me: “Furniture is good! It’s where people sit!”

    Caller: *click*

    Two Letters And A Hundred Stitches

    , | Philadelphia, PA, USA |

    (After helping a middle aged man find many CDs…)

    Customer: “Thank you… what’s your name?”

    Me: “Ryland.”

    Customer: “Thank you for your help, Ryan!”

    Me: “No, no. My name is Ryland.”

    Customer: “Ryland? What the h*** kind of name is that? You better watch out, you’re going to get attacked one day!”

    Airheaded, Part 3

    | Monroe, NC, USA |

    Manager: “May I help you?”

    Customer: “I would like to return these wind chimes. They don’t work.”

    Manager: “Okay, are they broken?”

    Customer: “No, they just don’t work.”

    Manager: “Well, where did you hang them?”

    Customer: “On my back porch.”

    Manager: “Well, they should work just fine there.”

    Customer: “They don’t… my husband and I sit on the porch and no there is no sound from the chimes!”

    Manager: “Is your porch screened in? That could reduce the wind.”

    Customer: “No, it’s glassed in…”

    Manager: “… I believe I know what the problem is.”

    Customer: “Can you fix it?”

    Manager: “No, but I can sell you a fan!”

    Sometimes, Even Yoda Isn’t Enough

    | Ontario, Canada |

    (A coworker and I are sitting in a fairly small booth at the gates of the swimming pool. A sign that reads ‘We Do Not Accept $100 Bills’ is placed right under the sign reading ‘No Refunds Due to Inclement Weather.’)

    Customer: “No refunds due to inclement weather, eh? What if it’s nice?”

    Me: “Yes, sir, very droll.”

    Customer: “Alright, it’s for me and my two kids.”

    (The customer attempts to pay with a hundred dollar bill for something that amounts to about $5.50.)

    Me: “I’m sorry, we can’t accept hundred dollar bills.”

    Customer: “But it’s all I have!”

    Me: “Well, I’m afraid we can’t accept hundred dollar bills. Do you have any debit or credit cards with you?”

    Customer: “No, but I have this hundred!”

    Me: “Well, I’m sorry, but we don’t accept hundred dollar bills.”

    Customer: “But it’s all I have!”

    (This repeats for about seven or eight times before I start varying it up a bit.)

    Me: “Bills hundred dollars accept we do not.”

    Customer: “But it’s all I have!”

    Me: “Dollar bills, hundred accept not we do!”

    Customer: “But it’s all I have!”
