(A woman called us on the phone after getting home with a video game she’d just purchased.)

Me: “Thank you for calling ****, this is ****, how can I help you?”

Customer: “I just bought a video game, and there’s plastic on it.”

Me: “OK…”

Customer: “What do I do? Do I take the plastic off?”

Me: “Yes ma’am. You have to in order to get the game.”

Customer: “But nothing will happen, right?”

Me: “No. Nothing is going to happen.”

Customer: “Are you sure?”

Me: “Yes, I’m sure.”

Customer: “All right. I’ll call back if something happens.”

(I never heard back. I hope nothing horrible happened.)

Always Right, Even When Trafficking People

Me: “Thank you for calling ****, this is **** speaking, how can I help you?”

Customer: “Yes, hi. I was just wondering how much your Mexicans are?”

Me: “I’m sorry?”

Customer: “Your Mexicans. The ones you have outside in the parking lot. I need some work done on my roof and I wanted to come pick up a couple.”

Me: “Ma’am…first of all, they are called day laborers. Secondly, they don’t belong to us. They don’t belong to anyone actually, they are people. Third, our city prohibits soliciting work in a shopping center, so we actually don’t have any workers in the parking lot. If you need work done–”

Customer: “Never mind, I’ll just shop somewhere else!” *hangs up*

Smile – You’re On Scam-Cam

Me: Hi, welcome to ****. How can I help you today?”

Customer: “I’ve been waiting here for 15 minutes. I want everything here discounted.”

Me: “Ma’am, I left here maybe two minutes ago, max, to check the fitting rooms.”

Customer: “Are you calling me a liar?”

Me: “In short, yes.”

Customer: “Bull! Do you have any proof I wasn’t here earlier?!”

(I point to the huge camera on the ceiling.)

Customer: “…”

Me: “…”

Customer: “I’ll shut up now.”

Diagnostic Scan Results: Crisp & Buttery

(A customer walks in and places a box on the desk in our repairs center.)

Me: “Hello, how can I help you, sir?”

Customer: “Can you fix this for me?”

Me: *looking at box* “This is a toaster.”

Customer: “Yes. Can you fix it? It’s broken.”

Me: “I’m sorry, we only fix computers and computer peripherals here.”

Customer: “But if you can fix computers, surely you can fix a toaster!”

Me: “We don’t fix toasters, sir.”

Customer: “Please? I’m sure it’s easy.”

Me: “Even if we could fix it for you, you don’t have a repair warantee with us, so it would cost you ¬£50 just for us to look at it. You could buy two new toasters for that.”

Customer: “¬£50?! What a rip-off! If it’s going to cost me that much, I’ll go elsewhere!”

Me: “Have you tried the store you bought it from?”

Customer: “Yes, and they wouldn’t fix it!”

Me: “So you thought a computer store would?”

Customer: *takes the toaster and walks out in a huff*

Always Right, Even If It’s Child Labor

, | New York, NY, USA | Uncategorized

(I’m a painfully shy 13-year-old, and a customer somehow mistook me for an employee.)

Customer: “Can you help me find something?”

Me: “No.”

Customer: “NO?!”

Me: “No!”

Customer: “Why not?!”

Me: “… I’m not allowed to talk to strangers.”
