Category: Extra Stupid

This site is full of Customers; their stupid and moronic exploits that make us laugh. But these gems contained within are for those special cases, the extra stupid, the ones that make you wonder how they have survived this long!

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!”

At A Complete Price Loss

| SC, USA | Extra Stupid, Money

(I work in a clothing store popular with teens and young adults. While we are in the middle of our biggest sale of the year, all prices are CLEARLY marked. Some items are marked with a percentage while others have an actual dollar value. There is no sign anywhere in the store saying that everything is 40% off.)

Customer: “So, are the denim jackets 40% off?”

Me: “I’m not sure, but I can check for you if you’d like to bring one up.”

Customer: “But the sign said they were 40% off.”

Me: “Oh, the sign right above the jacket? The,n yes, that would be the price. But if you’d like, I can double-check that for you on the register.”

(Customer walks away, looking around for a moment before bringing up one of the jackets. I scan it and tell him the price.)

Me: “It’s going to be $32.”

Customer: “But the sign says $35…”

Me: “It must be mis-signed. The register says it’s $32.”

Customer: “But the sign says $35.”

Me: “Yes, but you’ll only have to pay $32. We probably just missed the sign when the prices changed.”

(At this, the customer gives me a confused look before taking the jacket and walking away to put it up before walking out of the store.)

Icy Receptions

| Boston, MA, USA | Extra Stupid, Food & Drink

Me: “Welcome to [Coffee Shop]. What can I get for you?”

Customer #1: “Vanilla latte.”

Me: “Would you like that hot or iced?”

Customer #1: *blank stare*

Me: “Ma’am? Hot or iced?”

Customer #1: “Medium.”

Me: “Okay, medium vanilla latte. Hot or iced?”

Customer #1: “Sarah.”

Me: *it clicks* “Oh, your name is Sarah. Okay, is this hot or iced?”

Customer #1: “I don’t need a receipt.” *begins attempting to swipe card*

(I give up, total the order, and write her name on a hot cup. The next customer approaches.)

Me: “Hi, what can I get you?”

Customer #2: “Large caramel latte.”

Me: “Is this hot or iced?”

Customer #2: “Phillip.” *begins to swipe card*

Coworker: “And so sets the tone of the day.”

(The first customer comes back in.)

Customer #1: “EXCUSE ME, I WANTED THIS ICED!”

Me: “Of course you did.”
