Color Me Stupid

| St Louis, MO, USA | Extra Stupid, Food & Drink

(Note: I am fairly new at the liquor store, so I’m still learning about all the wines, beers, and liqueurs.)

Customer: “Excuse me, do you have Nuvo Pink?”

Me: “Umm, I’m not sure. What is that?”

Customer: “It’s a liqueur.”

Me: “Okay, well, it would be over here.”

(I take the customer over to the the shelves and start looking for it.)

Me: “If we don’t have it, perhaps we have something similar. What flavor is it?”

Customer: “Pink.”

Me: “No, what flavor?”

Customer: “The flavor is pink!”

Seeing Oneself In Others

| Winnipeg, MB, Canada | Uncategorized

(A regular comes in and hangs out for a while. Clearly, he doesn’t really want to go back to work.)

Customer: “It’s boring there. I don’t want to go back.”

(He sees a mannequin dressed in camo.)

Customer: “Can I take him with me? He’d blend right in.” *chuckles*

Me: “Um…he’s a tad heavy and falls apart a lot.”

Customer: “Perfect. He’s just like me!”

Sorry, We’re Fresh Out Of DeLoreans

| Saskatchewan, Canada | Uncategorized

Customer: “I would like to book a car for the 21st.”

Me: “Okay, so August 21st?”

Customer: “No, July 21st. We are in July.”

Me: “Sir, it’s July 24th today.”

Customer: “Oh…” *pauses* “…I’ll call you back.”

When In Rome (Or Canada)…

| British Columbia, Canada | Canada, Tourists/Travel

(I work at a tourist shop where we get Americans on a regular basis.)

Me: “Would you like to pay by credit card?”

Customer: “Yes. Do you know where I can find a Bank of America?”

Me: “Um, I’m sorry, but there isn’t any around here.”

Customer: “So you guys don’t have Bank of America.”

Me: “No.”

Customer: “Are you sure?”

Me: “Yes, this is Canada.”

Wingardium Laziosa

| Livingston, NJ, USA | Books & Reading

Customer: “I can’t find the Cliff’s Notes for Harry Potter. Could you order them for me?”

Me: “I’m sorry, they don’t make Cliff’s Notes for Harry Potter.”

Customer: “That’s ridiculous. They have Cliff’s Notes for everything. Why don’t you look it up?”

Me: “Actually, they don’t have Cliff’s Notes for everything, especially not for children’s books.”

Customer: “They aren’t children’s books.”

Me: “They’re shelved in the children’s section.”

Customer: “Adults read them too. You don’t have them so I’d like to order them.”

Me: “I’m sorry, but they don’t exist.”

Customer: “That’s a lie. There’s a computer right in front of you. Look up Cliff’s Notes and find them!”

(I look up Cliff’s Notes and show the customer the extensive list. After a few minutes of frustrated searching, she gives up.)

Customer: “This is ridiculous! I want to know what they’re about, but I don’t want to read them.”

Me: “May I suggest the movies, in that case?”

Customer: “I’m not stupid! I’ve seen the movies! I just don’t want to read the books!”
