Some customers can be demanding, but within reason. These customers however make some requests that go beyond demanding, beyond reasonable, beyond possible! These requests, like the customers, are crazy!

Not Very Cagey About Their Drinking

| Atlanta, GA, USA | Crazy Requests, Food & Drink, Pets & Animals

(A woman has come in looking for a hamster for her seven-year-old daughter’s birthday the next day. I’ve gone over the basic care instructions and all that’s left is to pick out the cage.)

Me: “Okay, so the dwarf hamster is pretty small, and any of these cages will be big enough. I would recommend this one, since it comes with food, bedding, food dish and a water bottle.”

Customer: “Which one is the easiest to put together? I’m gonna be pretty drunk tonight when I set this thing up.”

Me: “…Let me show you the pre-assembled cages.”

This Joke Has Been Used

| Tilehurst, England, UK | Crazy Requests, Health & Body

(I overhear the following conversation in the pharmacy:)

Customer: “I’d, um, like some, er, suppositories, please. Sorry, but I’m not really sure which ones. They’re for my wife, who called out for me to get some when I was half-way out the door on an errand to do something else.”

Pharmacist: “Certainly, sir, let’s go and look for some. Here: would they be these?” *offering him a particular brand*

Customer: “Pff. Not sure. Could be; I know she suffers from the H word, but on the other hand…”

Pharmacist: “You can bring them back for a refund and replace them with the other kind.”

Customer: “What, even if…” *at this point he cracks up laughing* “Even if…” *and he’s laughing so hard he can’t say what he’s trying to say*

Pharmacist: *knowing exactly what he’s trying to say; it’s an old joke, but so funny she can’t help laughing herself* “…even if they’ve been used?”

(Both customer and pharmacist laughed like grade school children.)

Lack Of Register Does Not Register, Part 6

| CA, USA | At The Checkout, Crazy Requests, Time

(At my store, the place you punch in is at the registers. However, the storage for the employee’s items is in the back. You need to go to the back to put your items in before punching in. I have just clocked in and am going up to my supervisor to see what register I’m on and what duties I have. Before I get to her, I’m stopped by a customer.)

Customer: “Are you an employee?”

Me: “Yes.”

Customer: “Why aren’t you at a register?”

Me: “I just clocked in two seconds ago. I’m going to—”

Customer: “Well, I saw you walking past. Why weren’t you on the register?”

Me: “I’m sorry. It’s store policy for the employees to put their things in the back before clocking in.”

Customer: “Have you seen this line? I want your manager. There need to be more employees on the register. What I want to know is why you aren’t on a register now.”

Me: “Because I’m busy talking to you.”

(In the time it took for her to complain, I could have gotten on my register and checked her out.)
