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!

In Line And Out Of Line, Part 13

| Orlando, FL, USA | Bad Behavior, Crazy Requests, Popular

(I am currently working at a famous theme park when an irate customer stomps up to me basically dragging her son along.)

Me: “How can I help you?”

Customer: “My son wants to go on [Extremely Popular Attraction], but there are a ton of people in the way.”

Me: “You need to wait in line like everyone else, ma’am. May I interest you in getting a Fast Pass?”

Customer: *yelling* “JUST TAKE ME AND MY SON TO THE FRONT, GOD-D*** IT!”

Me: “If I let you to the front of the line, then I’d have to let everyone to the front of the line.”

Customer: “Then why don’t you do that, dumb b****?”

Trying To Take Credit For It

| UT, USA | At The Checkout, Crazy Requests, Popular

(At my store, we’re required to inform customers about our store credit card and attempt to get them to sign up. I’ve just finished ringing up a customer with her purchases.)

Me: “All right, and would you like to save 10% today and sign up for a [Store] card?”

Customer: “Do you have any coupons back there you can give me?”

Me: “Unfortunately, we don’t have any non-card holder coupons out right now.”

Customer: “Can I just use your employee discount?”

Me: “Sorry, we’re not allowed to do that. I’d get in a lot of trouble.”

Customer: “That’s dumb. I shop here all the time.”

Me: “I’m sorry, but with the [Store] credit card you get a percentage back on your purchase every time you use it and special card holder coupons mailed out to you. If you shop here a lot, it’s actually pretty worth it. Would you like to apply today?”

Customer: *blank-faced* “Can’t I just use yours?”

Me: *taken aback* “Sorry, I don’t have one for you to even use in the first place.”

Customer: “Exactly! Why are you trying to sell me a card if you don’t even have one?”

Me: “Well, I’m only seventeen… so I’m not really old enough to apply in the first place.”

Customer: “Well, that’s just stupid!”

Walker Me Through It

| WA, USA | Bad Behavior, Crazy Requests, Popular

Me: “Thank you for calling [Medical Supply]. My name is [My Name]; how can I help you?”

Customer: “Is this the medical supply store?”

Me: “Yes, it is! What can I help you with today?”

Customer: “Do you sell medical supplies?”

Me: “Yes, we do. We have wheelchairs, hospital beds, walkers, and more. Is there anything in particular you were looking for?”

Customer: “I’ve seen other people using them. It is a metal frame that people use to walk around if they are unstable.”

Me: “That would be a walker. We do have those here, with or without seats.” *I explain the difference* “Would you like to come in and have a look at them?”

Customer: “No, no. You don’t know what it is and you sound too young. I’ll try somewhere else.”

Free Of Gluten, Free Of Thought, Part 4

| CO, USA | Crazy Requests, Extra Stupid, Food & Drink, Popular

(We have an open kitchen line where pizza and flatbread is thrown. Therefore, there is flour EVERYWHERE after we open. We do offer gluten free bread, though.)

Customer: “I would like a meatball grinder with gluten-free bread. I’m deathly allergic to gluten.”

Cashier: “Ma’am, we use regular bread crumbs in our meatballs. Would you like a different filling choice?”

Customer: “Oh, no. The meatballs are fine.”

(This during a rush where three of us were tossing dough and watching her inhale the flour.)

A Tale Of Two Charities

| Leeds, England, UK | At The Checkout, Crazy Requests

(I work in a charity shop which supports elderly people. A customer puts two books on the counter.)

Customer: “I want to exchange this for this.”

(I look at the books and assume she’s had a moment.)

Me: “Oh, this has an [Animal Charity] price ticket on, not [My Shop].”

Customer: “Yes.”

Me: “I’m afraid I can’t exchange it, because you didn’t get it from here.”

Customer: “You mean I have to take it all the way back there?”

Me: “I’m afraid so, because we’re not affiliated with them.”

(The customer sighs sadly and buys her book, which cost 99p. She then leaves on the epic trek to the Animal Charity shop, located five shops down from us.)
