I work as a telemarketer in MO, USA. I got an inbound call one day with no information.
Me: Thank you for calling-
Man: 421 Beaker Street!!
Me: I’m sorry?
Man: *hysteric* Come quick! I think she’s hurt real bad. There’s blood everywhere!!
Me: Sir-
Man: Send an ambulance! SHE’S DYING!!
By this time I’m freaking out. Obviously, this dude needed help. I didn’t want to just hang up, so I hit the alarm on my dialer, alerting my supervisor.
Man: Is the ambulance on their way?
Me: Sir, I’m not 911. If this is an emergency, you should hang up and dial 9-1-1!
Man: So where is this?
Me: This is [Company]. We’re an education refferal service. Sir, isn’t someone hurt?
Man: It’s just a video game. No use cryin’ about it. I don’t need no college. *click*
My supervisory came up and asked me what happened. Apparently, the same dude had been calling in all morning, yelling about people dying on Skyrim.

(I’m an assistant at a vet clinic. Another assistant is in a room with the veterinarian and a patient with their owner getting vaccinations. She comes out a few minutes later, shaking her head and smiling. She tells me about this exchange:)

Owner: *while coworker attaches new rabies tag to pet’s collar* “Oh, is that his herpes tag?”

Coworker: *pause* “No, ma’am, this is his rabies tag.”

Owner: “Oh, good!”

(Totally made my day.)

(I’m closing the restaurant on Christmas Eve and cleaning out the bathrooms when I miss this call.)

Coworker: “Hello! This is [Restaurant, Location]. How can I help you?”

Customer: “Hi. Just making sure you were still open. We would like [everyday burger deal] to go. We’ll be at the restaurant in twenty minutes.”

Coworker: “We close at 7:30 tonight.”

Customer: “What the f*** is wrong with you? Some of us are hungry!”

(This particular coworker has four children, has been there since nine am, and has had a splitting headache the whole shift. Obviously, she is tired of being there.)

Coworker: “No, what is wrong with you?! It’s Christmas Eve; we want to go home to our families! The grill has been closed and completely cleaned off. Everything in our restaurant is cleaned off. You are not getting any food from us tonight.”

Customer: “Are you serious?”

Coworker: “Yes, I am, if you want to leave a complaint, here’s the store number, my name is [Coworker], and here is the number for corporate.” *click*

(The manager who is busy cleaning equipment runs over.)

Manager: “What happened?”

(The coworker gives an explanation.)

Manager: “For dealing with that phone call for me, you can go ahead and clock out.”

(I am the customer in this story. I drive an SUV with a distinctive roof rack.)
Cashier: (as I pull up to the payment window) Whoa! Is your car a shark?
Me: Uh, what?
Cashier: You look like a shark! What is that for?
Me: Uh, luggage?
Cashier: (reaching through the window, actually trying to grab the rack) I could just grab on to this, and you could pull me through the window and drive off with me on it! Then I could tell my boss that you kidnapped me!
