Floods Cause A Whole Raft Of Problems

| Brisbane, QLD, Australia | Crazy Requests, Uncategorized

(Queensland is suffering major flooding throughout the state. I’m tracking a customer’s order that was placed last week and still hasn’t arrived.)

Me: “Okay, I’ve tracked your order with our courier. Unfortunately, due to flooding there are a lot of road closures which is why your order has not been delivered.”

Customer: “But it’s not even raining that much, and the water isn’t that high in the streets.”

Me: “I am sorry for any inconvenience but the courier can not risk driving through flood water.”

*long pause*

Customer: “So it won’t be here today?”

Me: “Not unless you have a boat.”

Pretty Obvious

| OR, USA | Uncategorized

(I work for a wireless service company. I’m taking a look over a customer’s account to determine if he’s eligible for a discount on a new phone.)

Customer: “You sound really pretty. Way prettier than the last girl I talked to here.”

Me: “I can’t get you a free phone.”

Customer: “I’m not saying that to get anything from you, I just think you sound pretty.”

Me: “I still can’t get you a free phone.”

Customer: “Well then, you sound equally as pretty as the last girl!”

How Not To Curry Favor

Me: “How may I help you today?”

Customer: “Yeah, am I calling India? Because I don’t want to be talking to some outsourced guy.”

Me: “No, sir, you are not.”

Customer: “I’ve been watching this TV show about how they can disguise their accents. How do I really know you aren’t in India?”

Me: “Sir, we are based out of Los Angeles.”

Customer: “Well, prove it then. What’s the capital of Los Angeles?”
