Just Floating That Idea Out There

| CA, USA | Extra Stupid, Technology

(I work for a company in California that rents out houseboats for vacations. Someone calls in.)

Me: “Thank you for calling [Company]. This is [My Name]; how may I help you?”

Caller: “Yeah, I was just wondering when my power was going to be back on.”

(I assume the customer means the generator on his houseboat stopped functioning.)

Me: *confused* “What lake are you at?”

Caller: “What lake? I’m at my house in Virginia.”

Me: “Well, this is a houseboat rental company in California.”

Caller: “Yeah, I know.”

Me: “How would we know when your power is coming back on?”

Caller: “I don’t know.”

H2-Slow, Part 10

| IL, USA | Extra Stupid, Math & Science

(I work at a car dealership which operates an automatic car wash that is free to people who have purchased a vehicle. One extremely cold winter day, a young woman in an SUV stops near me with a question.)

Woman: “Hey, why isn’t the car wash open?”

Me: “Sorry, miss, the wash closes when it’s this cold out because the wash doesn’t dry the cars. When the cars come out wet, the water freezes on the way home and folks often get their doors and windows frozen shut.”

Woman: “That doesn’t make any f****** sense! Don’t they use HOT water?!”

Me: “…Are you under the impression that hot water can’t freeze?”

Woman: “Whatever.”  *drives off*

Should Have Left At Right

| MI, USA | Extra Stupid, Technology

(Because of the snow outside, I have been spending most of my time mopping up what has melted in my section. I start on the aisle with printer ink and paper when a customer approaches me in the middle of said aisle.)

Customer: “Where is your printer ink?”

Me: *points to their left*

Customer: “Oh… where’s your printer paper?”

Me: *points to their right*

Customer: *turns red* “You’re going to make fun of me when I leave, aren’t you?”

Me: “No, but there’s a very good chance that I’ll submit this to notalwaysright.com!”
