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!

You’re In His Sights

| Bodø, Norway | Extra Stupid, Hotels & Lodging

(I work as a room attendant. It’s a busy day, with a lot of people moving about in the corridors. An elderly man approaches me briskly, and doesn’t stop until he has properly breached my comfort zone. I recognise him as a guest, though, one who is partially blind, so I put on a big and polite smile.)

Guest: “Hey, you, can you help me find room number 444? Is it down this way?” *points down the corridor I’m currently in*

Me: “Ah, no, sir. It’s in the other direction, but it’s past the conference halls. Do you want me to walk you there?”

Guest: *briskly* “Yes.”

Me: *smiles, nods and begins walking down in the right direction* “It’s down here, you see.”

Guest: *suddenly angry* “NO I CAN’T SEE OR I WOULDN’T HAVE ASKED FOR HELP!”

They Must Be Quite New To This

| Vancouver, BC, Canada | At The Checkout, Extra Stupid

(I am on my second shift at a till at a new coffee shop, where I am still unfamiliar with the system and therefore very slow. Thankfully, it is at night, so the lineup is usually only two or three people and the customers spend at most three minutes waiting in line.)

Me: *to approaching customer* “Hello! How may I help you?”

Customer: *he has been waiting in line for less than a minute* “What is taking so long? The store is never this slow.”

Me: “Oh, I’m sorry, sir. I’m new to working here, so I’m still learning everything.”

Customer: “They hired MORE new people?”

Me: “Yes, that’s how stores work.”

Customer: “Well they need to stop hiring so many new people! Don’t you agree?”

Me: “…no?”

(Clearly he doesn’t understand how I got my job.)

What A Total Dipstick

| Dallas, TX, USA | Extra Stupid, Transportation

(The customer pulls up on the service drive. She is driving a brand new car. She does not bother being polite, instead gets out of the car screaming.)

Customer: “This car is a lemon; I’m gonna sue you all!

(Her car is pouring oil on the drive. The service advisor goes over, she shuts it off, and he opens the hood and goes to check the oil. There is no dipstick.)

Service Advisor: “Where is the dipstick?”

Customer: *smugly* “I put it in the trunk so I don’t lose it.”
