Gives New Meaning To ‘Phone Bill’, Part 2

, | CO, USA | Crazy Requests, Extra Stupid, Money, Technology

(A customer calls in to a bank call center.)

Customer: “I need to make a deposit.”

Me: “I can certainly help you with that deposit. What do we need to deposit? Cash, check, money order?”

Customer: “I need to deposit money.”

Me: “What type of deposit? There are different ways to make a deposit depending on what you need to deposit.”

Customer: “I need to deposit cash.”

Me: “I can find you the closest ATM so you can make your cash deposit.”

Customer: “You mean I have to go somewhere to make the deposit?”

Me: “Yes, if you are depositing cash.”

Customer: “Well, can’t I just deposit it over the phone?!”

Me: No, I’m sorry. There is not a way to deposit cash over the phone.”

Customer: “What kind of service is this?” *click*

Flyer Doesn’t Fly With You

| ON, Canada | At The Checkout, Bizarre, Money

Customer: “Is this the item that’s on for $69?”

Coworker: “Yes, that’s the one in the flyer for $69”

Customer: “Okay, I’ll get it but I want to get other things too.”

(Later the customer brings the item to my checkout.)

Customer: “Is that the one on sale?”

Me: “Yes, for $69.”

Customer: “That’s the sale price?”

Me: “Yes.”

Customer: “Are you sure?”

Me: “Yes.”

Customer: “That girl over there told me it was in the flyer.”

Me: “It is. For $69.”

Customer: “Can you check the flyer?”

(I humor her and check, but it takes me a little bit to find it in the flyer. Before I find it, the coworker from before walks by.)

Customer: “Oh, that’s her! How much is this item?”

Coworker: “$69.”

Customer: “Great, thanks!”

Mocking Beliefs Will Cost You

| Vancouver, BC, Canada | At The Checkout, Bizarre, Money

Customer: “Hey, how much is this?”

(I don’t know the price either, but there is a haphazardly placed sign in front of the item that vaguely matches its description.)

Me: *looking at sign* “I believe it’s $49.99.”

Customer: “You BELIEVE? Can you go check the actual price?”

Me: “Why certainly, sir.”

(I grab the item and bring it to a cash register to scan it. It comes up as $89.99.)

Me: “Okay, sir, I checked the price for you. It’s actually $89.99.”

Customer: “What?! But that sign says $49.99!”

Me: “But sir, you very obviously had doubts about this sign, because you asked me for the price.”

Customer: “But you even said it was $49.99!”

Me: “No sir, I said that I BELIEVED it to be $49.99. You didn’t like that answer, so I went to check the price like you’ve asked me to. All I’ve done was follow your directions.”

Customer: “D*** it! Me and my big mouth!”

(He still bought it, though. After all, isn’t the customer ‘always right’?)
