    Just Wait Until Congress Hears About This

    | Houston, TX, USA |

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

    Customer: “Well I need one of those things that go in back of my phone. What’s it called?”

    Me: “I’m not sure what it is, ma’am.”

    Customer: “Oh yeah, I remember what it is. A stem cell…”

    Me: “A what????”

    Customer: “You know, a stem cell so I can make calls…the little card thing…”

    (She was thinking of a SIM card; I died laughing when she left!)

    Sticking To Your Guns

    | Denton, TX, USA |

    *customer hands over a tree skirt for her Christmas tree*

    Customer: “Thats all! And I have a coupon…”

    Me: “I’m sorry ma’am, but it appears that the tree skirt is already on sale, so you can’t use the coupon.”

    Customer: “Really? It doesn’t say anywhere that it’s on sale.”

    Me: “Well, the ad that the coupon comes in also says that ‘All Christmas decorations’ are on sale for 30% off. Your coupon is for 40% off, so its not that big of a difference. It says on the coupon that you cannot use it on sale items…”

    Customer: “Can’t you just give me the regular price and discount it with the coupon?”

    Me: “Ma’am, you’re only losing out on…6 dollars. I really don’t want to lose my job over your 6 dollars.”

    Customer: “I BELIEVE I’M BEING CHEATED! I’M NEVER SHOPPING AT THIS ESTABLISHMENT AGAIN!”

    *customer comes back 2 hours later to buy the exact same tree skirt*

    Dirty Minds

    , | Seattle, WA, USA | Top

    (Customer calls requesting a cable.)

    Customer: “Hi. I am trying to connect my iPod to my stereo.”

    Me: “Okay. Do you have a receiver, a small shelf system, or a boombox?”

    Customer: “It’s a smaller stereo.”

    Me: “Okay. Do you have a small plug that looks like a headphone plug that is labeled AUX, Audio IN, or anything of the sort?”

    Customer: “Yes, there is a small round plug that says AUX.”

    Me: “Okay, that’s easy. All you need is a 3.5mm male-to-male RCA cable.”

    Customer: “Male-to-male as in boy-to-boy.”

    Me, knowing what is coming next and not caring: “Yes, it is just referring to whether it is a plug or a receptor of a plug.”

    Customer: “Well, you are just disgusting!”

    Me: “Sorry ma’am, that is just an industry standard term.”

    Customer: “That is just one of the most disgusting things I have ever heard!”

    Me: “Sounds good.”

    Customer: *hangs up*

    Ask A Stupid Question, Part 2

    | Denver, CO, USA | Top

    (I’m standing right in front of about ten racks of toys and a giant sign that says “Toy Shop.”)

    Customer: “Do you carry toys?”

    Me: *turns, looks up at the sign* “Nope.”

    (Customer walks off to continue her search.)

    Customer: “What size is this rug?”

    Me, reading label: “54″ x 72″.”

    Customer: “So how big is that?”

    Me: “In centimetres? It’s…”

    Customer: “No, in inches.”

    Me: “It’s 54 inches x 72 inches.”

    Customer: “OK. And what colour is it?”

    Me: “Lilac.”

    Customer: “Right…and would it look good in my lounge?”

    Me: “I don’t know…I’ve never seen your lounge.”

    Customer: “No, I guess you haven’t. Do you think I have room for it?”

    Me: ?@#!
