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!

Any Given Sundae

| Perth, WA, Australia | At The Checkout, Bizarre, Food & Drink

(I’m working drive-thru at a well known fast food place.)

Customer: “I’d like one large chocolate sundae, and one large sundae with chocolate or caramel on the bottom and chocolate or caramel on the top with extra chocolate or caramel. It doesn’t matter which one.”

Me: “So two large sundaes wi—”

Customer: “No, you’re not listening to me. One large chocolate sundae. One large sundae with chocolate or caramel on the bottom and chocolate or caramel on the top with extra chocolate or caramel. Either one.”

Me: “Okay. So in total you have tw—”

Customer: “NO, YOU AREN’T LISTENING. ONE LARGE CHOC—”

Manager: *signalling to me that the customer wants just one*

Me: “So you want one large sundae with chocolate on the bottom and caramel on the top with extra sauce?”

Customer: “YES. That wasn’t so hard, was it?”

Gonna Party Like Its 1595

| Australia | At The Checkout, Awesome Customers, Bizarre

Me: “Okay, that’s $15.95.”

Customer: “I remember 1595. ‘Twas a good year; Hastings was a changed place, that’s for sure.”

Me: “And the maidens were young and fair?”

Customer: “Yep. The biggest news story was these two young people who got married but succumbed to a tragic murder-suicide. And some young ‘un going by the name Shakespeare was top of the charts. Yep, an interesting year for sure!” *wanders off with his purchase*

Doesn’t Understand The Custom Part Of Customer, Part 5

| VT, USA | Bizarre, Crazy Requests, Extra Stupid

(I work at a somewhat upscale clothing store. Lately customers have been coming in and refusing to even acknowledge my greeting, let alone let me help them.)

Me: “Hello, welcome to [Store]. What can I help you find today?”

Customer: “I’m not telling you what I’m looking for.”

Me: “Okay. If you need anything let me know.”

(Customer proceeds to look around for about 20 minutes. I check on her several more times. She lets on that she is looking for something specific to wear to a graduation. She will not tell me what it is.)

Customer: *leaving* “Well, I guess you just don’t carry cardigans anymore!”

Me: “Yes, we do! They are right here on this table! What size or color would you like?”

Customer: “White, medium.”

Me: “That was pretty fast, right?”

Customer: “Sorry, I just didn’t want you to try to SELL me anything.”

Me: “Then why are you shopping?”
