Library Staff Are Very Amen-able

| Tennessee, USA | Right | September 24, 2010

Customer: *handing me a book* “Is this the Koran?”

Me: “No sir, this appears to be a book about Ojibwe singers.”

Customer: “The lady said it would be on aisle 6B.”

Me: “It is, but the Koran’s call number is 297. This book is listed under 264.”

*blank stare*

Me: “Let me try to help you find it.”

(Walking to aisle 6B, I notice that the book he grabbed is the first book on the aisle, at eye level.)

Me: “Sir, did you just walk to aisle 6B and grab the first book you saw?”

Customer: “I couldn’t find it, so…yes.”

(He then find’s another book on the shelf.)

Customer: “Oh here it is! Would this be the best one?”

(The patron has picked up ‘The Complete Idiot’s Guide to the Koran’.)

Time Waits For No Ham

| Pittsburgh, PA,USA | Right | September 23, 2010

(I work at a gas station that offers made-to-order sandwiches. A customer uses a computer to place their order and gets an order number that is called once their sandwich is made).

Customer: “I’m here for my ham sandwich.”

Me: “Okay. What is your order number?”

Customer: “Here, it’s 433. I know I’m a few minutes late.”

Me: “Sir, that order was ready three hours ago. We threw it away when it sat for half an hour.”

Customer: “But it’s only 4:40. It has only been 7 minutes.”

Me: “That is your order number, not the time you are suppose to pick up your order.”

Customer: “Oh, I was wondering why the time didn’t have the dots between the hour and minutes!”

(This is an independent bank with only four loan officers.)

Me: “Here’s you receipt. Are you all set?”

Customer: “I need to speak with my loan officer for a minute.”

Me: “Okay, that’s Joe. Let me check if he’s available.”

Customer: “No! Rich is my loan officer.”

Me: “No, Joe is. He talked to you last week, remember? Tall guy with a moustache?”

Customer: “Rich has been my loan officer for eight years. I want to speak with him!”

Me: “Rich died three years ago.”

Customer: *silence*

Me: “So, I’ll get Joe?’”

Customer: “Right, Joe.”

Me: “We have a type of baked chicken with a sort of lemon sauce on top.”

Customer: “Is the chicken alive?”

Me: “No, I don’t think so.”

Customer: “Oh, I don’t eat deceased meat, I’m sorry.”

Me: “Ok, well here is a menu. What else interests you?”

Customer: “How about a turkey sandwich?”
