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!

Foiled Their Plans

| Hattiesburg, MS, USA | At The Checkout, Crazy Requests, Money

(I am a customer service manager at a local grocery store. I hear this conversation between one of my cashiers and a customer.)

Coworker: “Okay, sir, four dollars is left after your EBT card. It is for the aluminum foil.”

Customer: “Why didn’t my EBT card pay for that?”

Coworker: “It isn’t food, sir….”

Customer: “Will it work if I get another brand?”

Coworker: “No, sir… it still isn’t food.”

Customer: “Are you sure?”

Coworker: “Yes…”

Giving Them The Milk-Shakedown

, | Warwick, RI, USA | Crazy Requests

(I’m taking late night orders at the drive-thru. Two very heavily intoxicated women come through.)

Customer: “We’d like two milkshakes.”

Me: “Apologies. As it is a half hour before we close, our ice cream and shake machine has been shut down and disassembled for the night

Customer: “But we just came from the bar! You can’t do this to us! We need our shakes!”

(After trying to reason with them, my very sarcastic manager takes over.)

Manager: “Well, I suppose we could reassemble the machine, fill it up, wait minutes for the mix to freeze up to make your shakes, and then we can just break it all down again after.”

(Most people would see this as pure sarcasm, but it would seem the women are too far gone to get it.)

Customer: “Thank you! We’ll wait while you do that.”

(My manager gave up, told them to have a great night and took off his headset. They sat there for a few minutes before driving off. Some people don’t take a hint.)

Me: “[Church], may I help you?”

Caller: “Hello! Who is the owner of your establishment, and may I speak with him, please?”

Me: “That would be God. May I put you through?”

Caller: *click*
