I am a counter person we have a small but great menu

Customer: hi do you have peel and eat shrimp?

Me: no we dont, sorry.  However we offer fried shrimp and some other popular options.

Customer: so you don’t have peel and eat shrimp?

Me: no, sorry.

Customer are you sure?

Me: yes i’ve been here for a while.

(The customer hems and haws then decides on a drastically altered version of our most popular item)

Customer: oh and i am local, can i get the discount?  I work at the psychic place around the corner !

Me:  ok, wait you work where?  Un nevermind….(price with discout)**  facepalm**

I suppose she can not see the future if its a resturant.

Locked In A Misunderstanding

, , , , , | Right | January 25, 2018

(I work at a small bed and breakfast. We don’t use magnetized keys for the rooms, just regular, old-fashioned keys. One morning, a guest walks up to me.)

Guest: “I left my keys in my room, and I’m now locked out of my room.”

Me: “Oh, that’s no problem! Just open the door; it’ll be unlocked!”

Guest: “No, it’s not! I am locked out.”

Me: “Ma’am, in order for you to lock the door to your room, you need your keys, which you say are in your room. The door is not locked.”

Guest: “Yes, it is! I stay in hotels all the time, and this happens to me every single time, and I always need a new key from the front desk! Are you going to help me or not?!”

(I get up and walk upstairs to the guest’s room. I simply turn the doorknob and the door opens.)

Me: “Here you go!”

Guest: “It was unlocked this whole time?! Why didn’t you tell me?! What kind of security is this, that doors can be left unlocked?!”

(I simply walked away.)

Someone Needs To Write These Books

, , , , , | Right | August 23, 2017

Me: “Thank you for calling [Store]. This is [My Name]. How may I help you?”

Woman: *who sounds like a little old lady* “Hi, [My Name], do you have fitness books?”

Me: “Yes, we do!”

Woman: “Can you look up some titles for me?”

Me: “Sure!”

Woman: “The first is called ‘Call Me Miss Shapely Legs.’ Now, [My Name], please repeat that back to me so I know you have it right.”

Me: *puzzled by the odd title, but repeats it*

Woman: “You’re not speaking directly into the phone. Repeat it again, please.”

Me: *repeats it again, at this point still feeling sympathetic, thinking the woman is hard of hearing* “I’m sorry, ma’am, nothing comes up for it.”

Woman: “Really? Nothing? Why is that?”

Me: “Because we can’t get it in. It might be an older book, or out of print.”

Woman: “That’s too bad, I can’t believe you can’t get it! Well, the next book is ‘We Made Love Now I Have to Kill You.’ [My Name], repeat that back to me so I know you have it right.”

Me: *says it back quietly, as there’s a line of customers standing right there and I feel somewhat embarrassed saying this into the phone!*

Woman: “I can’t hear you. Speak up and repeat it again.”

Me: *repeats it more clearly*

Woman: “I still can’t hear you.”

Me: *practically shouts the title into the phone*

(Customers and coworkers at the counter are all staring at me and snickering. Lo and behold, this book doesn’t come up either.)

Woman: “Okay, [My Name], how about ‘I Have the Strength of 10,000 Muscular Women.’ Now [My Name], repeat that title back to me please so I know you have it right.”

Me: *gritting teeth, repeats it*

Woman: “You’re not speaking into the phone!”

Me: *convinced I’m being pranked at this point* “‘I. HAVE. THE. STRENGTH. OF. TEN. THOUSAND. MUSCULAR. WOMEN.’ I AM SPEAKING DIRECTLY INTO THE PHONE. NOTHING IS COMING UP IN THE COMPUTER FOR IT. WE DO NOT HAVE IT. I have to go. my boss is calling me.”

(My coworkers never let me live down that a little old lady prank called me.)
