For whatever reason, some Customers are just plain odd. And the service industry unleashes them on to unsuspecting clerks with often hilarious results. If you like your customers just plain bizarre, then read on!



| USA | Bizarre, Crazy Requests, Food & Drink

(I work at a butchers shop. A young woman enters with a container.)

Woman: “Did you know none of your items are vegan?”

Me: “Yes…”

Woman: “If you want more vegan customers, you should sell some of my tofu loaf.”

(She hands me the container.)

Me: “Um, I don’t think I’m going to be getting a lot of vegan customers no matter what I sell.”

Woman: “That’s a shame. You’re losing the hipster customers, which makes up, like, 50% of customers.”

Me: “Okay, thanks…”

Woman: *suddenly shrieking* “SELL TOFU LOAF!”


Common Sense On A Diet

, | Chicago, IL, USA | Bizarre, Crazy Requests, Food & Drink

(A few friends and I are in the car driving home from the city. We pull into [Fast Food Restaurant]. I pull up far enough for my friend in the back seat to order.)

Friend: “I’ll like a number five with no pickles and a [Soda #1], a number seven with a [Soda #2], two large fries, and a diet water.”

Person Taking Order:  “What was that last part?”

Friend: “Two large fries and a diet water.”

Person Taking Order:  “One moment, please.”

(The person taking the order forgets to mute his headset. We hear him asking another coworker if they carry diet water. His coworker starts laughing hysterically.)

Person Taking Order:  “Please pull up to the window”

(I pulled up to the window to see that the person that took the order was bright red and highly embarrassed for not realizing what he asked his coworker for. His coworker was still laughing hysterically and struggling to stand back up in the background. I tried my best not to laugh even though everyone in the car was in tears from laughing so much.)


Looks A Little Lost And Found

| Tallahassee, FL, USA | Bizarre

(I am the customer in this story. My purchases have been loaded on the conveyor belt, and I get up to the cashier and hand her my card.)

Cashier: “Did you find everything…?”

(I open my eyes real wide, assume a scared expression, and slump a little.)

Me: “YES! And it was overwhelming!”


Time To Face The Customer

| USA | Bizarre, Crazy Requests

Patron: “Where’s the bathroom?”

Coworker: *points to area behind patron* “Oh, it’s over there on the right.”

Patron: “Thank you.” *leaves*

(Patron comes back a minute later, angry.)

Patron: “I thought you said the bathroom was on the right!?”

Coworker: “It is.”

Patron: “No, it’s not! I was facing you, so that means the bathroom was on my left!”

Coworker: *stunned*


And When The Night Falls, Customer Calls

| ID, USA | Bizarre, Musical Mayhem

(Companies call me when they need a truck to come pick something up.)

Me: “Thank you for calling [Trucking Company]. Pick up team. This is [My Name].”

Customer: “Yes, I would like to schedule a pick up.”

Me: “Okay. Can I have the phone number for the pick up location?”

(The customer provides this, which brings up the account and info for location. I continue talking with customer and in-putting info, until we begin reaching the end of the call, so I begin to close the conversation.)

Me: “Is there anything else I can do for you today?”

(In the background you can clearly hear a male voice singing ‘I want to dance with somebody’ very loudly.)

Customer: “Nope, I think that will be it; thanks for your help.”

Me: *trying not to laugh* “Okay. Thank you for your business; please remain on the line for a one-question survey and have a great day!”

Customer: *sounds like he also wants to laugh* “Thank you; you, too. Goodbye!”
