Ever come across a customer that has made you want to call the police? These ones pretty much ensure it. It goes way beyond the realms of shoplifting or threatening behavior. Some of these customers are too stupid even for those…

Should Wind-Screen Calls

| Columbus, OH, USA | Criminal & Illegal, Liars & Scammers, Transportation

(I work in auto glass sales. This happens at least once a day:)

Caller: “Yeah, uh, I need a glass replacement?”

Me: “Alright, we can help with that. Is it being billed through insurance or a commercial account?”

Caller: “Insurance.”

Me: “What insurance are you with?”

Caller: “Uh, I don’t know.”

Me: “Do you have a card you can look at?”

Caller: “Nah, I don’t have insurance yet.”

Me: “Unfortunately that would be fraud then. I can put it through cash, if you’d like.”

Caller: “F*** you people! I just want a d*** windshield!” *click*

Big Box Of Bad

| MA, USA | Food & Drink, Liars & Scammers

(My mother and I are having lunch at a chain restaurant where we’ve always gotten decent food and great service. The lady at the next table keeps calling our waitress over to complain about her food, to the point where it’s getting on my mom’s nerves. The waitress is apologetic and gets her bill adjusted for her.)

Waitress: “…and here’s your dessert. I’m so sorry for the inconvenience.

Lady: “Thank you. Oh, and can I get a box for the rest of this?”

(Mom and I exchange a look.)

Mom: “That bad, huh?”

Gotta Give Them Credit For Trying

| Finland | Hotels & Lodging, Liars & Scammers, Money

Me: “Okay, so now that your arrival tomorrow will be after 6 pm, we’d need your credit card details to guarantee for the arrival.”

Customer: “So here’s the number: 123 7881”

Me: “What kind of a credit card is it?”

Customer: “It’s a Visa card”

(All Visas and Mastercards are 16 digits.)

Me: “Are you reading the numbers in front of the card?”

Customer: “Yes. It’s 123 899912”

(I notice that it’s a different number than what he said before.)

Me: “I’m not sure if that’s your library card number or something else but I definitely know it’s not a credit card number.”

Customer: “Oh, you noticed.”
