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!

I ‘Find’ That Hard To Believe

Lincoln, NE, USA | Bad Behavior, Extra Stupid

(I work in an outbound call center at a student loan guarantor. We call people who are past due so that we can go over their options to become current and then transfer them to their servicer if necessary. Wrong numbers are often associated with accounts, but we remove them as soon as a person tells us it’s a wrong number.)

Me: “Hello, is [Name] available?”

Kid: “If you call this number again, I will PUNCH YOU IN THE FACE! And then I’ll FIND you!” *click*

Me: “Um…?”

They’re Nutso Different

, | Charlevoix, MI, USA | Extra Stupid, Food & Drink, Health & Body

(I work in a fudge shop during tourist season. All the types of fudge are in a large display that takes up the entire length of the room, separating the workers from the customers.)

Me: “Hello, ma’am. Welcome to [Company]. How can I help you?”

Customer: *stares blankly at the display* “…What are those two there?” *points vaguely at two types of fudge*

Me: “This one on the left is walnut fudge, and the other on the right is cashew.”

Customer: “Oh… Well, what’s the difference between walnut and cashew fudge?”

Me: *dumbfounded* “Um… one has walnuts… and the other has cashews?”

Customer: “Oh. Well I don’t like nuts. Can I get this one instead?” *points to a display peanut butter fudge*

Needs More Than A Penny For Your Thoughts, Part 2

MO, USA | At The Checkout, Extra Stupid, Money

(I work as a cashier for a popular fast food joint. I deal with a lot of ridiculous requests, but this one just baffled me.)

Me: “That will be $4.01.”

Customer: *hands me a five*

(I ring it up and hand him his change, which includes a few pennies.)

Customer: *tries to hand me a penny*

Me: “I’m sorry, sir, did I give you the wrong change?”

Customer: “No, but you said $4.01. I didn’t have a penny to get even change but now I do. So now I get a dollar back.”

Me: “I’m sorry sir, it was that amount before, but you already paid and received your change. I can’t open the drawer and give you a dollar for your penny…”

Customer: “No, I need exact even change, just the dollar! I have the penny now, so I need a dollar!”

Me: “Sir, I don’t need the penny now that you have paid. You already received your change!”

(He proceeds to mutter about how I don’t know how to do math and that it’s my loss for not taking the full amount…)
