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…

Unable To Find The Path

| Kansas City, MO, USA | Funny Names, Transportation

Customer: “I need a part for my ‘pad sander.'”

Me: “I am sorry, sir, but we sell automotive parts, not tools.”

Customer: “No, I need part for my pad sander. ‘Pad sander!'”

Me: “Again, sir, we only sell automotive parts. Perhaps you should check with [Other Store]?”

Customer: “No, no, no. I need part for my ‘pad sander.’ My Nissan ‘Pad Sander.'”

Me: “Do you mean Nissan Pathfinder?”

Customer: “Yes! Are you an idiot or deaf?”

Should Stick To Interwebs Exploder

| Helsinki, Finland | Funny Names, Technology

Me: “So what browser you’re using?”

Caller: “I used to have Mozzarella, but now I’m using Wirevox.”

(I couldn’t resolve customer’s problem just over the phone, so I established a remote access connection to their computer. They used IE.)

Genetically Modified Turkey

| MI, USA | Food & Drink, Funny Names, Geeks Rule

Customer: “Hi, yes, could I please have a pound of mystique turkey please?”

Me: *not quite catching what they said* “I’m sorry, did you say mesquite turkey?”

Customer: “Yes, mystique turkey!”

Me: “Actually, it’s mesquite smoked turkey, Mystique is a character in X-Men.”

Customer: “Yeah, yeah, just get me some mystique turkey, please.”

Me: “Mystique turkey coming right up! And I’ll change it blue for you, too!”
