    For Ditzy Customers, Please Press 2

    | Ontario, Canada | Technology

    (I am calling a customer to let them know that their order is in.)

    Me: “May I please speak with Mrs.***?”

    Customer: “Speaking.”

    Me: “Hi there, this is Sarah, I’m calling from [store] to let you know that your order is in, and you can come pick it up anytime.”

    *long pause*

    Me: “Hello?”

    Customer: “Oh! I’m sorry. I thought you were a recording!”

    Not Down Low On The Download

    | Ontario, Canada | Liars & Scammers

    Me: “Hi, can I help you find anything?”

    Customer: “Yeah, do you have [this game] for PC?”

    Me: “Yes, we do. It’s $30. Would you like to purchase it?”

    Customer: “No thanks. I just wanted to see how much money I saved by downloading it instead.”

    A Father’s Love Is Very Console-ing

    | Scotland, UK |

    Customer: “Excuse me, could you give me some advice please?”

    Me: “Sure, how can I help?”

    Customer: “I was looking to buy a Nintendo 360 for my son.”

    Customer’s Son: “Dad! It’s an Xbox360!”

    Customer, to me: “This is how much help I need. Would you please?”

    (Not So) Heavy Brain

    | Minnesota, USA |

    Me: “Hi, welcome to [store]! Anything I can do for you?”

    (Customer puts a copy of a video game on the counter.)

    Customer: “I’m returning this game; it’s not for me.”

    Me: “What didn’t you like about it?”

    Customer: “It was the stupidest game ever! I walked around a house for 10 minutes, went to the mall, then my kid died and the credits rolled and it was over!”

    Me: “Uh…those were the opening credits.”

    (Role) Playing The Fool

    | Winnipeg, Canada |

    (A customer asks me to tell him about the store and what we sell. I point out the board games, miniatures and card games, but he doesn’t perk up until I mention a well-known table top fantasy RPG.)

    Customer: “What’s that?”

    Me: “It’s a role-playing game. You get some people together, make characters and play out what they do on adventures.”

    Customer: “Is there a game going on right now?”

    Me: “Well, no. You need to get people together and organize.”

    Customer: “I’m only in town for three days.”

    Me: “Yeah, it’s really a sit-down game. It takes a long time to play.”

    Customer: “Where do I go?”

    Me: “It’s a game you play with friends.”

    Customer: “I mean for a dungeon. You know, role-play?”

    Me: “I don’t…” *light bulb goes off* “Oh! This has nothing to do with that.”

    Customer: “Do you know where I could go to find it?”

    Me: “No! I don’t know anything about that!”

    Customer: “But I’m only in town for three days!”

    Me: “I can’t help you. Excuse me.”

    (The customer wanders around a little longer, then asks about a poster we have for a live-action game with a picture of an immodestly-dressed woman on it.)

    Customer: “What’s that?”

    Me: “That’s an ad for a live-action role-playing game. People get dressed up in costumes and play.”

    Customer: *very excited* “Can I meet her?”

    Me: “What? No.”

    Customer: “But I’m only in town for three days!”
