Their Intelligence Is Capped

| USA | Extra Stupid, Technology

Customer: “Your password isn’t working on this computer!”

Me: “Really? That’s weird. Everyone else seems to have logged in just fine.”

Customer: “Well, it’s not working for me and I need you to fix it.”

Me: “All right. I’ll see what I can do.”

(I walk over to my computer and double check to make sure I have the password right when it comes to me what the problem is.)

Customer: “Well?”

(I glance at his keyboard and sure enough, caps lock has been turned on. I press the caps lock key and start walking back to my desk.)

Customer: “Oh…”

The Sad (Pro)State Of Service

| Adelaide, Australia | Bad Behavior, Food & Drink, Health & Body, Spouses & Partners

(I work as a waitress in a small and very busy beach side cafe which attracts a somewhat pretentious crowd.)

New Colleague: “I’m not sure what that man at table one wanted. He was mumbling a lot.”

Me: “Oh, don’t worry. I’ll ask.”

Customer: “Oi, you! Can I get the bill?!” *does ticking bill sign in air*

Me: “When you’re ready, sir, just come to the front and we can sort it out up there.”

Customer: “Yeah, I know that but I want the bill here.”

Me: *grits teeth* “… Sure.”

(I bring the customer his bill. The customer’s wife waves me aside as her husband exits with a weird waddle in his step.)

Wife: “Don’t worry, dear. No man is pleasant to be around after a prostate exam.”

Silver Linen To Every Cloud

| USA | Family & Kids, Health & Body, Hotels & Lodging

(We have multiple very large groups staying with us, so all the extra bed sheets are taken up.)

Guest: “My child threw up on the bed! I need new linens!”

Me: “I’m sorry, sir, but we have no more.”

Guest: “Nonsense! You are supposed to help! It’s your job! Now fetch my linens and don’t be lazy about it!”

Me: “Sir, I’m not kidding. We don’t have any more. How am I supposed to get you some more linens when I don’t have what you need?”

(The guest yells angrily, so I bring the manager out.)

Manager: “What’s the problem?”

Guest: “I’ll tell you what’s the problem! This hotel has no more linens! What kind of hotel has no more linens to give!”

(My manager takes the angry guest out and walks with him someplace. When she returns, she is alone.)

Me: “What happened?”

Manager: “I showed him the lobby, which was full of people. I showed him the pool, which was full of people. Then I showed him the hallways, which were also full of people, and told him that every one of them has asked for linens and we ran out. He got real quiet, grunted, and then ran off to his room!”

Meatballs-Out Crazy Request

| CT, USA | Crazy Requests, Food & Drink

(The building out of which I have operated my shop for the last 2.5 years was originally built as an Italian restaurant. The restaurant went out of business over a decade ago, and my coffee shop is only the latest in a string of businesses that have occupied the property since then.)

Me: *answering the phone* “Good afternoon, [Coffee Shop].”

Caller: “Oh, um, hi… This is going to sound a little stupid…”

Me: “No, don’t worry. What can I help you with?”

Caller: “Well, my name is [Caller], and I just really loved [Original Restaurant]’s meatballs and sauce. I was wondering if you still had any, or if you knew how to get some?”

Me: *speechless*

Caller: “They were just so good! Do you know where they might have opened up again?”

Me: “No… Not at all.”

Caller: “Oh, that’s disappointing. What a shame. They were just so good. I—”

Me: “All right. Well, if that’s all, I—”

Caller: “But they were just so good!”
