Creepiness Just Hit The Motherlode

| DC, USA | Family & Kids, Spouses & Partners, Theme Of The Month

(I have just finished helping a customer complete a change to his wireless plan.)

Customer: “Wow, thank you, [My Name]. You have a nice voice, you know that? How old are you?”

Me: “Well… I’m 26, sir.”

Customer: “Hoo wow, that’s way too young. Is your mom married?”

Me: *kind of chuckling nervously* “Yes. Yes, she is.”

Customer: “… Happily?”

Me: “…”

Not Reassuring To Those Doing Insuring

| OH, USA | Extra Stupid, Money

(I work for an insurance company. Sometimes we issue customers a card with funds for things like hotel and food. While our call center is there 24 hours, we have limited access, particularly to information relating to payments and funds. As these things are rarely ever an emergency we’re asked to transfer the calls to the claims associate, who is typically out on Saturday.)

Customer: “I got a credit card from your company that I can’t access. And I can’t reach the adjuster.”

Me: “Okay. It’s Saturday today and I don’t think anyone is in.”

Customer: “You guys should have a phone number somewhere where I can call and get the pin number. Or have it on file or something.”

Me: “I’m afraid we don’t. Was there not a letter with that card that had that information?”

Customer: “Yeah, but I threw it away!”

Me: “Hi. This is [My Name] calling with [Company] regarding savings on the electric bill. May I please speak with [Customer]?”

Customer: “WE’RE AMISH! WE DON’T HAVE ELECTRICITY!”

Me: “But you have a phone?”

Customer: “We sometimes have phones at the end of our properties for emergencies! You’d know that if you watched Amish Mafia!”

Me: “So, you also have a TV?”
