Closing Time Came Earlier For You

| Solihull, England, UK | Bad Behavior, Health & Body, Popular, Time

(I am on the shop floor with my mum, who has come to meet me on my lunch break. Due to a combination of the hot weather and having skipped breakfast, out of nowhere I faint. My mum puts me in the recovery position and some of my colleagues start to come over to see if I’m OK. Amidst the commotion, a customer comes over, sees my uniform, and bends over to where I am LYING ON THE FLOOR.)

Customer: “Excuse me, what time do you close today?”

Me: *too woozy and shocked to think of another response* “4:30.”

(The customer walked off without even a thank you.)

Only Have Yourself To Name

| Manila, Philippines | Bad Behavior, Funny Names, Language & Words, Popular

(I work as a customer service representative for an American credit card company. Most of our callers are irate since I’m assigned in the billing inquiry department. A call comes in and the client’s account automatically pops up and as part of our security procedure, the caller’s name should be captured over the recorded line. After my opening spiel, I ask for the caller’s name.)

Me: “For added security, may I please have your full name?”

Caller: *sounds frustrated and sarcastic* “It’s [Full Name], b****!”

Me: “Excuse me?”

Caller: “I said, it’s [Full Name], b****!”

Me: “Oh. So, how can I help you today then, Ms. B****?”

Caller: “WHAT DID YOU JUST CALL ME? YOU JUST CALLED ME B****?!”

Me: “Oh. I’m sorry. I was asking for your name. You said your name is [Full Name] B****. I thought it’s your last name.”

Caller: “Transfer me to your manager now!”

Me: “With pleasure!”

Don’t Gamble Your Job On It

| Melbourne, VIC, Australia | Bad Behavior, Popular

(Two seconds before I call no more bets, customers thrusts $10 at me.)

Customer: “Put it on 47!”

Me: “Sir, put it down on the table; I can’t take it from your hand.”

Customer: “I said 47!”

(Unwilling to risk my job for this rude customer and with the wheel coming to a halt I call no more bets.)

Customer: “If that lands on 47, I’ll…”

(The wheel stops on 3:1 and I pay out winning bets. I then declare new game.)

Customer: “If 47 came up you would be in so much trouble.”

Me: “Look, sir, if you want me to place your bet put it on the table. I cannot take anything from you directly. Secondly, if your bet isn’t on that’s your responsibility. Call bets is not an obligation.”

Customer: “I can’t reach. What do you want me to do? I haven’t got Go-Go-Gadget arms. I pay your wage. You should do whatever I tell you to!”

(Customer cusses me out and threatens to “cave my head in.”)

Me: *sigh* “I just explained it to you. And if you truly believe that, then you must really suffer from confidence issues. Threaten me again and I will have you detained. I am refusing you service. I suggest you take your small-man syndrome somewhere else.”

(Thank god we don’t work on tips in Australia.)
