As Thick As Pea Soup

| SC, USA | Bizarre, Food & Drink

Customer: “Excuse me, I’m looking for soup.”

Me: “What kind of soup did you have in mind?”

Customer: “You know, soup.”

Me: *attempting to narrow down the options* “Were you interested in hot and ready to eat soup, or are you looking for canned soup?”

Customer: “I want soup.”

Me: *brain cells beginning to weaken and die* “We carry hot soups in the deli, but otherwise, you’ll find our soup selection in… the soup aisle.”

Customer: “Soup?”

Me: *nodding slowly* “Yep. Soup.”

(Customer wandered away.)

Very Home Free

| UK | Bizarre

(I am the customer, in a supermarket with my mother. We’ve just finished paying for our shopping and I’m making my way out. My mother has stopped to talk to someone. There are two sales people at the front door. One approaches:)

Salesperson: “Would you like to hear out new electricity deals?”

(Instead of saying that I don’t handle the bills in our house I scream:)

Me: “I DON’T HAVE A HOME!”

(I then ran past the poor man with my cart.)

When Problem Number Two Is Problem Number One

| Canada | Bad Behavior, Bizarre

(I’m at work at an Internet tech support call center when our team leader speaks up.)

Team Leader: “I’m just going to be in the lunch room for the next bit if you guys need me.”

Coworker #1: “Believe me, you don’t want me to need you on this call.”

Coworker #2: “What’s happening? My customer is playing a ukulele for me!”

Coworker #1: “My caller just told me he’s taking a dump.”

Coworker #2: “Oh, my god! Why would you even share that?!”

Coworker #1: “I have no idea.”

(A couple of minutes later, I hear him speak again.)

Coworker #1: *on phone* “If you’re finished in the bathroom then, can we check and see if your Internet is back up yet?”

Double Double Trouble

| Canada | Bizarre, Food & Drink, Funny Names

(I work drive-thru at a popular coffee shop, and for reference, a “double double” is two cream and two sugar. A regular customer comes through the drive-thru and orders her usual, a large double double. When she pulls up to the window the following exchange happens.)

Me: “Hello!”

Regular: “Good morning!”

(I take her money and get ready to hand her the coffee.)

Regular: “Why can’t you order a double double without sugar?”

Me: “Oh, well, double double means double cream and double sugar.”

Regular: “I know. I wish I could get it without the sugar, though. I don’t really like the sugar.”

Me: “Oh! Well, you can order a coffee without sugar in it. Did you want me to do that for you?”

Regular: “But then it wouldn’t be a double double, though.”

Me: *confused* “Err, that’s right…”

(I gave her the coffee and wished her a good day. Somehow I knew there was no winning this one.)
