Stupid customers in stories are bad enough. However, dealing with a customer’s health issues may be hazardous to your own health! Please consult your doctor before continuing.

Free Of Gluten, Free Of Thought, Part 4

| NSW, Australia | Food & Drink, Health & Body

(I clean houses for a living. This particular client was a little old lady wanting a once off spring clean.)

Lady: “Would you like a tea or coffee?”

Me: “No thank you, but I will take a glass of water if you are offering.”

Lady: “Sure! I will be right back.”

(She comes back with a glass of water and a slice of cake.)

Lady: “Would you like some cake? It’s really nice!”

Me: *eyeing it off* “Does it have gluten in it?”

Lady: “Oh, no! I don’t put any in my cakes. Try it; it’s really quite nice.”

Me: *not entirely convinced* “Did you put flour in it?”

Lady: “Of course I did… It’s a cake.”

Me: *sighing* “Flour has wheat in it; therefore it has gluten in it. I’m gluten intolerant, sorry.”

Lady: “Are you sure?! It’s really very nice.”

Me: “I’m sure it’s quite lovely but it’s not worth the pain.”

Lady: “Are you sure?”

Me: *sigh* “Yes, I’m sure.”

Not Just The Tire Causing Skid Marks

| Whitehorse, YK, Canada | Health & Body

(An elderly man comes into our shop for a tire repair. I start the work order and provide his keys to a tire tech. I let him know that he should give us about 20-25 minutes before his car will be ready.)

Customer: “Oh, that’s okay. I have to go use your washroom and I’ll be in there for quite a while”

Foul Weather Today

| Norway | Norway | Health & Body

(I am a nurse helping a patient using the toilet. He is 92 years old. I come to help him get dressed and off the toilet.)

Me: “So… did you manage to do what you were going to?”

Patient: “There was lots of wind, but no precipitation!”
