I’m standing by a table at a company party and all of the people that had been with me have decided it’s late and they have to leave. Before I can grab my drink and find a place to sit down, a guy comes up to me and says:

Guy – Hey, weren’t we fingerprinted together?

Me starts cracking up, because yes, we were, it’s company policy for our jobs! :)

I work in a call centre for a car insurance broker. Now, a basic part of car insurance is whatever type of car you have, some of the price calculation is based on if the same type of car you have has had many claims/accidents etc. with other owners – if more claims are made against it, the higher the price.
I get a call from someone who has got a new car, and updated his insurance the previous week

Customer: I have been a customer with you for years now, and my bill has almost always been the same. Now it’s gone up by £5 a month and I want to know why
Me: Well I’ll check on that for you now sir, I’ll just check on the history and see if anything has changed for you
Customer: Absolutely nothing’s changed! The price has just suddenly gone up.
*look through his policy; see the price change came from the car change*
Me: Sir, I’m sorry but I’m afraid there isn’t anything I can do for the price, it’s set by the underwriter and the new price is based on the new car; that’s what has changed.
Customer: I know I’ve changed my car, but why has the price gone up?! It’s always been the same but now it’s different!
Me: … It’s a different car with a differnt price set to it. That’s all
Customer: But what has changed to make the price go up? I’ve told you it’s been a similar price for years but now it’s suddenly shot up! Why?
Me: *explain about how the claims on cars work*
Customer: But why would it go up? All I did was change the car! I want the price to be what it originally was!
Me: *explain again*
Me: Sir, I’ve explained exactly why the price has gone up. I’m sorry if you’re unhappy with the price change but it’s just how it’s been calculated. I don’t have the ability to change the price, and even if I did I don’t have a reason to. This is how insurance works. The price has been set and that is simply it. If you have any other queries I can help with those, but if this is only about the price then I simply can’t help you, sir.
Customer: I’ll be going to look around somewhere else next year at renewal then, you’ve lost a customer!
Me: Again, that’s how insurance works, if you don’t like our price next year at renewal too, you have every right to go somewhere else.
Customer: *shocked that “you’ve lost a customer” didn’t work* Well goodbye then! *hangs up*

I worked as a salesperson in a winery in Upstate NY. The owner arranged for some important winemakers to come for a luxury weekend. I drove them here & there for some events and stayed off limits & professional since I didn’t like their drunken behavior. The final few minutes were spent waiting for the car to pick them up to take them to the airport. They were discussing what would be the cherry on the cake for the weekend and one slid his hand up under my sweater on my bare back & pushed me into the center of the group & said ” Here she is. Here’s your cherry!” I was horrified, as was the rest of the group, they backed away & luckily the car pulled up just then. My boss shrugged it off as “boys will be boys” Asshats!

I work in a law office that handles traffic tickets. When there is a court date, we email the client to let them know when the ATTORNEY will be going to court on their behalf. When the client hires the attorney, they are made aware that they do not have to go to court. We later send a confirmation letter to note that again, the client does not need to be present in court. Earlier, I sent an email that looked like this.

me: Dear (client) please be advised that we have a court date set for (date and time) please also note that you do not have to be present in court (in red font for emphasis) You will also receive this court notice through the mail, but remember you do NOT have to be present in court. (Again, in red for emphasis). Once your case is officially closed, we will send you the results via email and mail. Thank you.

(in red, bold and italicized font) Again, you do not need to be present in court.

Client: Hi! Thank for the information. So do I have to be present in court?
