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!

Need To Do Their Homework

Caller: “Am I thirty minutes away from you?”

Me: “Where are you calling from?”

Caller: “My house.”

Not A Morning Person

| OH, USA | Extra Stupid, Popular, Time

(I am a receptionist in a doctor’s office. A patient has finished seeing the doctor, and as approached my desk to make another follow up appointment.)

Me: “Hi there, [First Name]. It looks like you need to come back in a month. Do you have a day of the week that you like better than another?”

Patient: “Nope! I’m retired now and free as a bird! Any day of the week is fine.”

Me: “Okay, I have the 12th of next month; that’s a Tuesday.”

Patient: “Oh, no, Tuesdays are no good. I have charity meetings on Tuesdays.”

Me: “Okay, how about the next day, the 13th? That’s a Wednesday.”

Patient: “Ooooo, you know what? I get my hair done on Wednesdays.”

Me: “How about the 14th, Thursday?”

Patient: “No, Thursdays aren’t good, either. I babysit my granddaughters on Thursdays. How about that Friday?”

Me: “Okay, Friday the 15th it is. Would you like a morning or an afternoon appointment?”

Patient: “As early as possible.”

Me: “You’re in luck; I have a slot available on the 15th at 8 am.”

Patient: “Oh, gosh, no! That’s much too early. How about around lunchtime?”

(She does this every time she’s in. You’d think I would have learned by now!)

They Have Beef With The Menu

| USA | Extra Stupid, Food & Drink, Popular

(Customers tend to not read the descriptions of items on the menu, and we serve a particular crowd that only eats chicken.)

Customer: “Can I get two BBQ burgers, a Swiss burger, and just a regular hamburger?”

Me: “Sure, your total is [total].”

(A while later they get their food. The customer stares at burgers and points to an OBVIOUSLY beef patty.)

Customer: “Uh, this is chicken, right?”

Me: “No, sir, that’s beef.”

Customer: “Oh, well I wanted chicken; we don’t eat beef.”

Me: “Well, it says on the menu these burgers are served with beef patties; if you want chicken burgers I would have to charge you.”

Customer: “I’m not eating these, and I don’t want to pay for them. Can you please just change them?”

Me: “I’m sorry, sir, but that’s four burgers! I can’t do that.”

(The customer left the burgers and left with his family. I know it was a bit harsh of me but it’s a recurring problem and frankly very annoying!)
