(I work within a very large concert hall selling programmes for the concerts. A large man walks up to me.)
Me: “Hello, sir, how can I help you today?”
Man: *strong Russian accent* “Excuse me, but where is the Russian carpark?”
Me: “Pardon, sir, could you repeat that?”
Man: “Where is the Russian carpark?”
Me: “The Russian car park?”
Me: “There isn’t one. There’s just a regular car park.”
Man: “Oh.” *walks off*
Me: “911, what is your emergency?”
Caller: “I’m a bad, bad boy.”
Me: “Yes, you are. I have a squad car en route to your location. Have a good day, sir.”

(It’s 9 am and the phone rings. Note that we open at 10 am.)
Me: “Thank you for calling [store]. How may I help you?”
Caller: “What time do you open?”
Me: “10 o’ clock.”
Caller: “Then why are you there?”
Me: “Excuse me?”
Caller: “Why are you there answering phones if you’re not open?”
Me: “We have a lot to do to get the store ready for opening.”
Caller: “Well, you shouldn’t be there. Otherwise you should just open at 9.”
Me: “Sorry, sir, we’ll see you at 10!”
(I work in an office for accounts receivable that takes payments, sets up payment agreements, etc. One night, I am working late on the fourth floor with a customer on the line when the building’s fire alarm goes off for a scheduled routine drill.)
Me: “Okay sir, your payment just went through. Your confirmation number is–”
Customer: “What’s that noise?”
Me: “It’s our fire alarm. They’re going to start clearing the building for a drill, so I need to give you this number quickly.”
Customer: “Is your building on fire?”
Me: “No, sir. It’s just a scheduled drill. Your confirmation number, if you’re ready, is–”
Customer: “Should I call the fire department?”
Me: “No, sir. It’s a drill. The building is not on fire.”
(I finally manage to give him his number and am finishing up the call.)
Me: “Thank you for calling finance, sir. Have a good evening.”
Customer: “You, too! Don’t burn to death!”
