Everyone needs basic math and science skills to survive. However, these customers were definitely sleeping their way through class!

It’s Cent-less To Argue

| Allentown, PA, USA | At The Checkout, Math & Science, Money

(I am a cashier at the front end of a grocery store. A customer hands me four $1 bills.)

Customer: “$3.50 in quarters please!”

Me: “Excuse me, sir?”

Customer: “You heard me; I’d like $3.50 in quarters.”

Me: “Wouldn’t you just like the $4 in quarters?”

Customer: “No? If I wanted that, then I would have asked for $4 in quarters.”

Me: “Then how would you like the remaining $0.50?”

Customer: “What remaining $0.50? Look, I don’t know what is so hard about this.”

(I just gave the customer his $4 worth of quarters, and he walked away.)

Anatomy Of An Idiot

| Philadelphia, PA, USA | Books & Reading, Health & Body, Math & Science, Movies & TV

(A customer comes to the register and puts a leather bound copy of ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ on the counter.)

Customer: “Yes, I would like to return this book; it wasn’t what I expected.”

Me: “Okay, I can do that for you.”

Customer: “It was terrible; it’s not at all like the television show.”

Me: “Excuse me?”

Customer: “It’s my favorite show, and I was really excited to read this, but I don’t know what they were thinking with this book.”

(I am dumbfounded, but I finish the transaction and send the customer on her way. The next customer in line approaches.)

Next Customer: “How is it you manage to get through a full day of that sort of bull-s*** and not punch yourself in the face?”

Me: “No idea, sir.”

Stupid Laws Of Spacetime

| UK | Extra Stupid, Math & Science

(I have been stuck in traffic for two hours due to a crash on the motorway.)

Customer: “MY ORDER IS OVER AN HOUR LATE!”

Me: “I am truly sorry; I was stuck in traffic on the motorway.”

Customer: “And you didn’t call!?”

Me: “I’m sorry, sir, but it is illegal to use a phone whilst in control of a motor vehicle.”

Customer: “I know that! I’m not stupid. Are you? Are you stupid?”

Me: “I’m sorry again, sir. If you call my supervisor, I’m sure they will reimburse you your delivery charge.”

Customer: “Are you ignoring my question on purpose? Are you stupid? Or are you just retarded like the rest of your colleagues?!”

Me: “No, sir, I’m not. I have a basic understanding of quantum physics and molecular biology. What do you have?”

Customer: “Uh…”

Me: “Good day, sir.”
