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!

Wipe And Gripe

| Kansas City, MO, USA | Extra Stupid, Technology

(I am on my way to the bathroom when a student stops me. She’s on one of our computers. All of our computers are available to the public.)

Student: “Hey! Where’s my stuff!?”

Me: “I’m sorry?”

Student: “I saved my stuff on here and it’s gone!”

Me: *shocked* “Ma’am, that’s a public computer. They wipe them fairly often.”

Student: “Other people’s stuff is on it and mine isn’t! I want my stuff!”

Me: *attempts to see if I can find her ‘stuff’*

Student: “I had my resume on here and everything!”

Me: “As I said, ma’am, these are public computers. Even if it hadn’t been wiped, any person can come in and delete files that are saved on here.”

Student: “Well, that’s just stupid!”

I’ll Have My Usual Irregular

| Columbus, OH, USA | At The Checkout, Extra Stupid, Food & Drink

(I am another customer in this story standing at the drink counter stirring my coffee when two drinks come ready at the same time. Despite the drinks being different sizes, very different contents, and called out with both to a shop quiet enough to be heard easily, both customers reach for the same drink.)

Customer #1: “Yours is the grande.”

Customer #2: “Are you sure?”

Customer #1: “Yeah, I had a tall.”

Customer #2: “I guess I forgot what my regular is.”

H2-Slow, Part 7

| MA, USA | Extra Stupid

(I work at a well known children’s clothing store. It is Christmas Eve. A woman picks up a rain jacket and walks up to ask me a question.)

Customer: “Is this water resistant?”

Me: “It’s a raincoat.”

Customer: “Yes, but is it water resistant?”

Me: “Well, it’s a raincoat so it’s kind of meant to be worn when there’s water.”

Customer: “Oh, I see; it’s a raincoat… So, is it water resistant?”
