New Lengths Of Stupidity

Email from customer about an item she just purchased: “Your listings says that the item would be 20″ wide, but it didn’t say how wide twenty inches was. It is way bigger than I expected!”

Got A Chip On Their Shoulder About Using The Chip, Part 2

| MI, USA | At The Checkout, Extra Stupid, Technology

Me: “Is that a chip card?”

Customer: “Yes. Is there a chip reader? Do I insert it?”

Me: “Yes, it will tell you on the screen when to insert your card.”

(The customer tries to SWIPE her card, twice, both times backwards. Nothing, of course, happens.)

Me: “It’s a chip card, right? You’ll have to insert it.”

(The customer swipes again, this time backwards and upside down. Still nothing.)

Me: “You’ll need to insert your card.”

Customer: “It says ‘Error reading card, please insert.’ Should I swipe it again?”*swipes card again upside/backwards/inside out if possible, before I have a chance to respond*

Me: “You need to insert your card, ma’am.”

Customer: *finally inserts the card* “I don’t understand why these chip readers take so long.”

It’s Taco-ver

| FL, USA | At The Checkout, Extra Stupid, Food & Drink

(I work at a very popular Mexican grill restaurant where we serve food down a line and you build your item of choice to your liking. A customer orders a bowl and starts to make it and everything goes completely fine. Next she decides to order for someone else.)

Customer: *in a Hispanic accent* “I also want a burrito.”

Me: “Of course, ma’am!”

(I put tortilla in the press and proceed to take it out and get ready to build it.)

Customer: “Do you have smaller burritos?”

Me: “No ma’am, the only thing smaller is tacos.”

Customer: “Oh! Yeah, that’s what I want!”

(Our tacos come with three in one serving so I put the taco shells in the press and proceed to ask her what kind of rice beans and meat she would like in her tacos.)

Me: “So what kind of rice would you like?”

Customer: “Uh… I’ll take the brown rice.”

Me: “Okay, what kind of beans would you like?”

Customer: “Black beans.”

Me: “Great, now what kind of meat?”

(Everything seems fine until I get to the third taco. Keep in mind that she’s watched me make all three tacos the entire time.)

Customer: “Oh, I only wanted one taco.”

(I look at my manager who sees my face and is trying so hard not to laugh.)

Coffree

| USA | Extra Stupid, Food & Drink

(The coffee bar I work for has the pots near the door, but the cups are back by the register.)

Customer: “Hey, look, this coffee is free.” *sees me behind register* “Is the coffee free?”

Me: “No.”

Customer: “So, I have to pay for it?”

Me: “Yes.”

Customer: “I can’t just take a cup without you knowing?”

Me: “No…”

George And Gracie Take To The Air

| NYC, New York, USA | Extra Stupid, Pets & Animals

(Our store is in an incredibly affluent neighborhood, which is primarily white, well-educated, and often fairly pompous. We have placed a very beautiful humpback whale sculpture in the window display and many people have stopped in to inquire after it.)

Woman: “HI! I was just wondering what that creature in the window is supposed to be?”

Me: “The humpback whale?”

Woman: “Yes, that. Does it fly?”

Me: “No… it’s a whale.”

Woman: *confused* “Oh.”

Me: “It lives in the ocean like the other whales.”

Woman: “Oh! So it’s supposed to be like a real whale?”

Me: “Yes, it’s a sculpture of a humpback whale, which live in the ocean.”

Woman: “Weird. Thanks!”

(Then she left.)
