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…

He’ll Be Führer-ious

| MI, USA | Funny Names, History

(I’ve recently started my first job as a cashier at a small town’s grocery store. A large, seemingly drunk man has approached my register at night.)

Customer: “Hey! Where’s Hitler?”

Me: “Uhm… what?”

Customer: “You heard me! Where is Hitler?”

Me: *thinking this is a joke of some sort* “He’s, well, dead.”

Customer: “What? No! Not that Hitler! I mean your boss!”

Acting Stupido

| Dahlgren, VA, USA | Funny Names, Hotels & Lodging

Guest: “Oh, Marla is a pretty name; but it doesn’t sound very Italian.”

Me: “Why would I have an Italian name?”

Guest: “You’re Italian, right? I mean, you look Italian.”

Me: “Nope, not Italian. Mom’s Mexican and Dad is White.”

Guest: “So, you’re kinda Italian?”

Me: “Nope. Not kinda. Not at all.”

Guest: “Well, you should be. You would be a pretty Italian.”

Me: *smiles and hands them their key* “So, since I’m not Italian, I am ugly?”

Chocolate Chip Slip

| Pigeon Forge, TN, USA | Food & Drink, Funny Names

(I am a cashier behind a counter at a cafe when a middle-aged man walks in.)

Me: “Yes, what can I get for you?”

Customer: “A packet of chocolate and a chip milkshake.”

Me: “Pardon?”

Customer: “Packet of chocolate and a chip milkshake!”

Me: “Don’t you mean—”

Customer: *really loudly* “A packet of chocolate and a chip milkshake! How hard is that—” *realizes* “—Sorry.”

Me: “Packet of chips and a chocolate milkshake?”

(Customer nodded and collected his food. I’ve never seen anyone rush to their table so quickly!)
