Should Have Called Ahead For Duty

| Santa Ana, CA, USA | Technology

Me: *answering the phone* “Hello, how can I help you?”

Customer: “I’m looking for the game Call of Duty.”

Me: “Um… sure which one?”

Customer: “I don’t know! Black something!”

Me: “Oh Black Ops! For which console?”

Customer: “I DON’T KNOW! IT’S BLACK SOMETHING! NINTENDO!”

Me: “Okay, for the Wii or DS?”

Customer: “YOU KNOW WHAT? JUST, F*** YOU!” *hangs up*

Lost Your Bargaining Chips

| Miami, FL, USA | Bad Behavior, Popular

(I am looking at salad dressings at the grocery store when a woman casually picks some chips out of my cart. Note that I am standing right near the cart with one hand on the bar.)

Me: “Excuse me; I think you took my chips.”

Customer: “What was that, hon?”

Me: “You took my chips right out of the cart.”

Customer: “What are you talking about? You haven’t bought it yet, so I will.”

Me: *takes chips out of her cart* “YOU haven’t bought them either.”

I’m Guessing He’s Not A Breadwinner

| Sydney, NSW, Australia | Extra Stupid, Food & Drink

Customer: “What’s that white stuff on top of your bread?”

Me: “Oh, that’s flour.”

Customer: “Is that edible?”

Failed In The Delivery

| AB, Canada | Crazy Requests

(I’m selling an old set of rims online and receive a message about them.)

Potential Buyer: “Hi, are these still available?”

Me: “Yes, they certainly are!”

Potential Buyer: “Would you consider dropping the price a bit?”

Me: “Well, since they’re used, I’ll accept a reasonable offer.”

Potential Buyer: “Great! Would you accept [$100 less than asking price]? Oh, and could you deliver to [City five hour drive away]?”

Me: “I’m sorry, but gas alone to get there and back will be about $150. I can accept that offer on the condition you pay for the travel, since it’s very out of my way and inconvenient.”

Potential Buyer: “That’s ridiculous! I’m not paying for your gas! This is horrible customer service! Why won’t you deliver for free?!”

Me: “Um, wow. Okay, well, in that case I’m going to refuse you service. Good luck in your search. Please don’t message me again.”
