All Fired Up And Fried Up

| Medicine Hat, AB, Canada | Right | June 2, 2014

(I have a headset on to assist drive-thru…)

Cashier: “You had the burger and a coke. Any fries today?”

Customer: *grumpy*: “No fries!”

Cashier: “Okay. And what size for your drink?”

Customer: “NO FRIES!”

Cashier: “I know, but what size for your drink? Small, medium, or large?”

Customer: “I said NO FRIES!”

Cashier: “Okay. The burger and a coke…”

Customer: “LISTEN, YOU LITTLE B****! I said I didn’t want fries! Don’t you f****** listen?!”

(She drives up to the first window and I’m ticked off, so I take it. She hands me her credit card.)

Me: “DON’T SWEAR AT MY COWORKERS!”

Customer: “Well, she wasn’t listening!”

Me: “Yes, she was. You didn’t. She asked what size of drink. She didn’t say a damn word about fries after you said you didn’t want any.”

Customer: “I want your manager.”

(I call for manager.)

Customer: “I want—”

Me: “Nope. You want the manager, not me, so you’re getting the manager.” *I still have her card so she can’t leave*

(The manager comes and the customer complains about my attitude to her. The manager says exactly what I did, not to swear at us, it’s her own fault, and not to come back. Haven’t seen her since.)

Fixed With A Male-To-Female Adaptor

| ON, Canada | Right | June 1, 2014

(I work tech support at an inbound call center for a fairly large ISP. A lot of customers get transferred by sales agents when they select the wrong option. I’m female.)

Me: “Thank you for calling [Company]. My name is [My Name]. How can we help you?”

Elderly Caller: “Oh, hello, dear. I’m just waiting for a tech support man.”

Me: “Yes, ma’am. I’m tech support! How can I help?”

Elderly Caller: “Oh no, no, honey. I’m sure there will be a tech support man along to help me shortly. I don’t mind waiting on hold.”

(After a few minutes of attempting to get her information and assuring I can help, I finally resolve the issue and we say goodbye. A few hours later I get an email from a coworker who had spoken to the same woman. He transcribed a message she insisted get to me that read as follows:)

Message: “Please tell [my Name] that she fixed all the problems I had and I didn’t mean to be rude. I didn’t even know women were allowed to work tech support so it’s not my fault!”

Doesn’t Live In The Real World

| USA | Right | June 1, 2014

(I’m the manager of a watch store in a mall. I am taking care of some display work when a couple walks up to my kiosk.)

Me: “Hi there! Is there anything I can help you find today?”

Customer: “Hey. No, thanks. I think we’re just looking.”

Me: “Okay, sounds good. Just let me know if you have any questions.”

(I go back to my display work and the couple wanders around the booth. As they come closer to me I notice the man is looking confused. I’m about to ask him if there’s something I can clear up for him when he speaks up.)

Customer: “Are any of these watches real?”

Me: “I… What?”

Customer: “These watches you’re selling. Are any of them real?”

Me: “Yes, sir. All of my watches are 100% authentic time pieces.”

(Meanwhile, his wife is snickering.)

Customer: “No, I mean are any of these real gold?”

Me: “I’m afraid not, sir. Seeing as I am in a kiosk in the middle of a mall, I do not have the security systems in place for me to sell genuine gold watches, which often start at several thousands of dollars.”

Customer: “Oh, but what about this one right here? It looks like it would be a real gold watch.”

Me: “No, sir. That watch is gold colored plating over base metal, mostly nickel. It runs $39.95.”

Customer: “Oh. But are those real diamonds on it?”

Me: “… No. I think they’re glass or plastic.”

Customer: “You sure you don’t have anything real in the back?

Me: “I’m a kiosk, sir. I don’t have a ‘back.'”

Customer’s Wife: *outright laughing now* “I am so sorry. You have been so patient!”

(She drags him away. A manager at the next store who has observed this and is in hysterics.)

Me: “I give up. Are you hiring?”
