Laptop Flop, Part 10

| Seattle, WA, USA | Bizarre, Technology

(I’m at a store which sells containers and furniture. They have a bunch of props to go on top of their items which are not for sale. I see a girl and boy looking at a fake laptop on a desk.)

Boy: “That’s fake.”

Girl: “I know.”

Boy: “It’s fake.”

Girl: “I know.”

Boy: “Why are you trying to turn it on then?”

Girl: “I’m enjoying my life.”

The Internet Loves Stories About Them, Too

| Dallas, TX, USA | Bizarre, Crazy Requests, Technology

Customer: “Excuse me, ma’am, where would I go to complain to a manager?”

Me: “What is the issue? Maybe I can help?”

Customer: “Forget it. I’ll just go complain on the Internet.”

Me: “Are you sure? It won’t be but a couple of seconds.”

Customer: “Yes, I’m sure. The Internet loves this stuff.”

Me: *gives him a weird look* “Well, okay then. Have a good day!”

(I later tell my manager what happened, and he just laughs.)

Manager: “Okay, I’m sure he’ll get real far with that. One less dumb-a** I have to deal with.”

A Different Kind Of Stoned

| St. Louis, MO, USA | Bizarre, Health & Body

(As I walk past the restrooms heading back to the manager’s office, a man comes out of the men’s room.)

Customer: “I finally did! I finally passed that son of a gun!”

(The man holds up a wad of toilet paper… with a KIDNEY STONE on it.)

Me: “Oh, God.” *and I quickly duck into the office!*

This Will Not Be A Walk In The Park

| The Netherlands | Bizarre, Tourists/Travel

(I’m working as a photographer at a sea-life park, whose big blue dome, where the main dolphin show is held, is its landmark. A lady comes up to me.)

Lady: “Excuse me, but can you tell me how to get in the park?”

Me: *confused* “You’re already in the park.”

Lady: “No, I mean IN the park. Like, inside.”

Me: “Didn’t you just walk through the front gates and paid there? From there on, you’re in the park, on park grounds.”

Lady: “No, in THERE!” *points towards the show dome*

Me: *getting a clue* “Oh, you mean how to get to our show dome? Well, you can’t miss it. The entrance is on this side of the dome. If you just follow the path here, it will lead you straight to it.”

Lady: “Yes, that’s what I meant! How can you think I mean something else? I want to get IN the park!”

Me: “Ma’am, you’re already IN the park. This park contains a lot more than only the main dolphin show.”

Lady: “Wait, there’s more?”

(I still wonder why she thought that high entrance price was only for one show!)

Failed The Name Game, Part 2

| CO, USA | Bizarre, Funny Names

(My company handles hardware and software issues for several well known fast food chains. We get a ticket that I need to call the store on to confirm some information.)

Me: “Hello, I’m with [Company], your hardware company. Is the manager on duty available?”

Customer: “Umm, no [Manager] left and [Other Manager] left.”

Me: “Okay. What is your name?”

Customer: “I don’t know. Let me check.”
