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!

The Truth Is The Same As Fiction

| PA, USA | Crazy Requests, Health & Body

(Due to unfortunate genetics and a car accident roughly seven years ago, I walk using a cane. Being only 20 and obviously young, I get a lot of questions about it, especially from strangers at work.)

Me: “Hey, how’s it going? Anything I can help you find?”

Customer: “Nah, I got it.” *sees my cane* “What happened to you?”

Me: “Oh, you know, life isn’t always fair.”

Customer: “No! You gotta use this opportunity to make stuff up and sound cooler!”

Me: “I… got hit by a truck?”

Customer: “Exactly!” *walks away happily, oblivious that I was actually telling the truth*

Best To Nip(ple) That One In The Bud

| Toronto, ON, Canada | Crazy Requests, Food & Drink, Popular

(A customer has asked me for five kilos of pork belly, in large pieces, but she has rejected every piece I’ve shown her, after looking at the underside of it. Note that pork belly comes with the skin on.)

Me: *after another refusal* “May I ask wh—”

Customer: “They have nipples!”

Me: *looking at the tiny nipples on the skin side* “Uh… yes?”

Customer: “I don’t want it with nipples!”

Me: “It’s pork belly. That’s… where the nipples are.”

Customer: “I need it without nipples.”

Me: “I can have the butcher remove the skin for you…”

Customer: “NO. I’ll still know they were there.”

Me: “Okay, so… what would you like?”

Customer: “Don’t you have any without nipples?”

Me: “All mammals have nipples, ma’am.”

(She didn’t buy any pork belly.)

A Catalog Of Errors

| Christchurch, New Zealand | At The Checkout, Crazy Requests, Money

(A customer comes in with an old catalogue and discovers the item he wants is no longer that price.)

Me: “Sorry, sir, that catalogue ended three-days ago. See the start and end dates on the front?

Customer: “I don’t give a f*** about where you’ve got dates. The price is in writing so you have to honour it! I know my rights!”
