Me: “This undergarment style has been discontinued. These are the last two.”

Me: ”Thank you for calling [store]. This is Ella. How may I help you?”

Customer: “Hi, I need [muddled].”

Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am. I can’t really hear you.”

Customer: “What?”

Me: “I said I can’t hear you too well.”

Customer: “Oh, god d*** it! Hang on!”

(There is a lot of grunting, a fart, and then the toilet flushes)

(The customer is checking out at my register for her purchase. She pays by credit card.)

Me: “I just need your signature on this slip and then we’ll be all set.”

(The customer is having a difficult time getting the pen to write. Before I can explain that it’s the kind of paper we use, she comes up with her own conclusion.)

Customer: “I can’t get the pen to write. It must not be a left-handed pen.”

Not Remotely Interested

Me: “Hello, sir. Can I help you?”

Customer: “Well, I’m looking for one of those video tape players.”

Me: “Oh, a VCR?”

Customer: *confused* “No, one of those video tape players.”

Me: “Yes, sir. They are called VCR’s. They’re a bit ancient now, but we have one used for cheap. It doesn’t come with it’s manual or remote, if that’s okay with you?”

Customer: “Well, no. That’s not going to work for me. How am I supposed to work your magic box without instructions?”

You’ll Find That In The Aisle Of Non-Existence

(I work in the electronics department.)

Me: “Hello. Is there anything I can help you with today?”

Customer: “Yeah, I’m looking for a cable for my computer.”

Me: “What type of cable did you need?”

Customer: “Ethereal.”

Me: “Um, you mean for internet? An ethernet cable?”

Customer: “It’s for internet, but it’s not ethernet. It’s ethereal.”

Me: “Maybe it’s CAT5 cable you need?”

Customer: “No. I said I need ethereal cable.”

Me: “Well, sir. Let me show you what we have.”

(I take him to the ethernet cables.)

Customer: “No, these are much too big. It’s a smaller cable than this.”

Me: “Are you connecting from a phone wall jack, or from a cable or DSL modem?”

Customer: “I have a box, a modem, but this isn’t ethereal cable.”

Me: “No, sir. It’s CAT5 ethernet cable. It will run from your modem to the LAN port on your computer. I’m pretty confident that this is the cable you need to use.”

Customer: “Well, I don’t know. It isn’t ethereal.”
