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!

Email Fail, Part 4

, | MA, USA | Extra Stupid, Technology

(I’m currently in the process of signing up a customer for a rewards card.)

Me: “I’m gonna need an email address to finish the process of signing you up.”

Customer: “I don’t have one.”

Me: “Oh, well maybe your husband does?”

Customer: “Oh, yeah, he does. It’s yahoo.com.”

Me: “Ah, well, it needs the first part of the email. Do you have that?”

Customer: “It’s yahoo.com.”

Me: “Right, well it still needs the beginning part. For example, if I were to make an account I might do “[My Name]@yahoo.com” or something like that.”

Customer: “Oh oh, then let’s do “[Husband]@yahoo.com.”

Me: “Well, he would have to create the account like that.”

Customer: “Oh.”

Me: “You can sign up next time, once you get your email created and stuff.” *begins to ring up her items*

Blisteringly Stupid Question

| Orlando, FL, USA | Extra Stupid, Health & Body, Tourists/Travel

Driver: *after the fill-up* “Can I ask you a question?”

Me: “Sure.”

Driver: “It’s about my husband. We were on the beach today and he got sunburned.”

Me: “Uh-huh.”

Driver: “What should I do to make him feel better?”

Me: “Well, aloe lotions are good. If it’s really painful, though, use lidocaine.”

Driver: “But he’s got blisters.”

Me: “Get him to the hospital! He’s got second-degree burns!”

Driver: “Oh, I couldn’t do that. He hates hospitals.”

Me: *stunned silence*

Avoiding The Meat Of The Problem

| UK | Extra Stupid, Food & Drink

(I work at a customer service desk in a large supermarket.)

Me: “How can I help?”

Customer: “I want a refund for this frozen chicken!”

Me: “Okay, so what seems to be the problem?”

Customer: “I put it in the oven for a whole hour and it’s still pink inside!”

Me: “Um, okay. I would suggest putting it in the oven for longer then, ma’am.”

Customer: “Are you calling me stupid?!”

Me: “No, I’m just suggesting that it is pink because it’s not cooked properly.”

Customer: “Just because I’m not a chicken cooking expert like you!”

Me: “I’ve been vegetarian for 13 years, ma’am…”
