Category: Funny Names

If there’s one common mistake that all stupid customers have made, it is that simple error of getting a name wrong. Be it a product, a person, a store or a place, these simplest of gems often have the most horrific and memorable results…

Lucy On The Ground, With Customers

| Dorset, England, UK | Funny Names, Musical Mayhem

Customer: “So, what’s your name then, darling?”

Me: “Lucy.”

Customer: “Like Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds?”

Me: *smiling* “Why, yes, that’s right.”

Customer: “That songs about LSD, isn’t it? Were your parents on hard drugs?”

Me: “Well, thank you for your order. Goodbye.”

A Little Nuts About The Naming

| North Attleboro, MA, USA | Food & Drink, Funny Names, Popular

Me: *to an elderly customer* “Did you find everything you were looking for, ma’am?”

Customer: “No, you don’t carry the peanuts in the can anymore.”

Me: “Actually, we do still carry peanuts right over here.”

(I then walk her to the correct fixture, pick up the can of peanuts we sell, and hold it out to her. She makes a face at me, then pushes by my outstretched hand and takes something else off the fixture.)

Customer: “Not those ones! These are the peanuts I wanted.”

Me: “…Ma’am, those are cashews.”

Customer: “Yes, but I call them peanuts. You guys are always out of them!”

Me: “Well, if you’re asking for peanuts, we’re not looking for cashews when we check the stockroom…”

Good Thing He Wasn’t Watching “Day After Tomorrow”

| England, UK | Funny Names, Movies & TV

Customer: “I pre-booked tickets online to watch… What’s it called again? …I can’t remember the name of the film.”

Me:Edge of Tomorrow?”

Customer: “No, I booked them for today!”

What’s Cold Is So Hot Right Now

, | Monroe, WI, USA | At The Checkout, Awesome Customers, Food & Drink, Funny Names, Popular

(I work at a very well known fast food place and am almost always the order taker and cashier during night shifts. One of my regular customers always gets the same thing: large coffee, seven creams and seven sugars. One time she said she wanted to try the iced coffee we have and wanted her usual.)

Me: “So you have hot coffee and cold coffee in on order. Makes me think of Katy Perry.”

Customer: *laughs* “You’re right; I didn’t think of that.”

Me: *jokingly* “Next time you want to order this you should ask for a ‘Katy Perry Order.’”

Customer: “I might just do that!”

(A couple nights later:)

Me: “Thank you for stopping at [Restaurant]. Order when you’re ready!”

Customer: “Yeah. I’d like one Katy Perry order, please!”

(I smile at it to this day and she still comes through with that order.)

Order Number One

| Fort Wayne, IN, USA | Food & Drink, Funny Names

(I used to work at a cold cut sub shop, and the names of the sandwiches are pretty straightforward — but we usually, for whatever reason, get weird variations of said sandwich names, even if the staff says it correctly. This happened more than I’d like to admit.)

Me: *as cashier* “Hello! How are you? What can I get you today?”

Older Woman: *looks at menu* “Hmmm…I’d like the number one, the Pee Pee, please.”

Me: *eyebrows slowly raise, cheerful smile keeping me from laughing* “Ah, the number one, Pepe.” *pronounced PEH-PAY* “All righty, anything else?”

Older Woman: “Yes, the Pee Pee, that’ll be all. Mmmm. That just sounds so good…”
