Chip Off The Old (Cell) Block

, , , , , , | Right | February 6, 2010

(A customer calls in with the phone displaying an error. Per standard cell phone troubleshooting, the first step is to take the battery out and put it back in.)

Caller: “When are you going to get this glitch fixed?”

Me: “It’s not really a glitch, sir. It’s just general routine maintenance, like rebooting a computer.”

Caller: “Don’t give me that s***! How stupid do you think I am! I know computers are not like cell phones! Computers have microchips and stuff in them, and cell phones are way too small to have microchips!”

North Of The Moral Border

, , , , , , , | Right | February 4, 2010

(A mother approaches me, violently dragging her two teenage boys along.)

Mother: “I demand you call the police immediately and have them arrest those ‘flashers’ at once!”

(She motions to the two topless girls on the beach.)

Me: “Actually, here in Ontario, it’s legal for women to go topless. Are you not from around here?”

Mother: “I am from America where we have morals and standards. You people sicken me! They are far too young to be doing that!”

Me: “Sorry, ma’am, but there is technically no age limit on the law. It applies the same as it does to your sons.”

Mother: “Is there not a family section for decent people to enjoy the beach without these sick perverts exposing themselves to everyone?”

Me: “Again, I apologize, but it’s not about the beach. It’s legal for women of any age to go topless anywhere outdoors they please… same as men.”

Mother: “I will sue this whole country for punitive damages! My sons will be scarred for life!”

(Her sons are clearly scarred, as they are staring at the topless girls with huge grins on their faces. All of a sudden, three more topless girls walk past. She attempts to cover both her sons’ eyes with her hands.)

Mother: “Heathens! You will all burn in Hell! Sinners and perverts, that’s all you Canadians are!”

No Shirt, No Brains, No Service

(Although I normally work nights, I’m taking another drive-thru shift for a friend.)

Me: “Welcome to [Coffee Shop]. May I take your order, please?”

Customer: “Chicken wrap guy.”

Me: “I’m sorry?”

Customer: “Chicken wrap guy.”

Me: “I’m sorry, sir. I’m not the girl that normally works drive-thru. We switched shifts.”

Customer: “So, you don’t know my order, then?”

Me: “Sorry, sir, but I don’t. What would you like?”

Customer: “Crap. Now I have to remember what I eat!”

Just Give Them A Watered Down Answer

, , , , , , , | Right | February 3, 2010

(I work at a hotel half an hour away from Niagara Falls.)

Customer: “What time do the Falls stop?”

Me: “You mean the stores? I think they’re probably closed-”

Customer: “No, no, the Falls. What time do they run until?”

Me: “The lights? I believe 10 or so–”

Customer: “No, no, I mean the actual waterfall. What time do they turn it off?”

Me: “Midnight.”

(It’s about 11:30 pm, so they thank me and run out. Two hours later, they return.)

Customer: “Thanks a lot for the help earlier! I guess it was our lucky day. They didn’t turn them off yet!”

Acting Rashly

, , , , | Right | February 1, 2010

Me: “Hi, this is [College] help desk. What can I do for you?

Caller: *sobbing* “You have got to help me!”

Me: “Okay, miss. What seems to be the problem?”

Caller: “I have this huge rash all over my butt!”

Me: “Miss, you do realize this is a tech help desk… like, for computers?”

Caller: “But I don’t know who else to call!”

Me: “Well, you could try health services. I can get you the number.”

Caller: “No, I already called them.”

Me: “And they couldn’t help you?”

Caller: “They wanted me to come in! But I don’t want people to know. Can’t you just tell me how to get rid of it?”

Me: “Miss, I honestly have no idea. I’ve never had your… problem.”

Caller: “What about your friends?”

Me: “Well, none that I know of.”

Caller: “Oh, my God, I AM a freak!” *hangs up while still sobbing*
