I work at a massage studio, where all we do is give massages. No facials, no pedicures, nothing else besides massages. None the less, on a weekly basis, this happens.

*Phone rings*

Me: [Name of studio] this is [me], how can I help you today?
Caller: Hi, I am wondering if [name I’ve never heard of] is available today?
Me: I’m sorry, who?
Caller: [Name], is she available for laser removal today?? I have this spot on my lower –
Me: *interrupts him* I’m sorry sir, I think you have the wrong number. This is [name of studio].
Caller: Where?
Me: *repeats name of studio*
Caller: Oh… so, y’all don’t do laser hair removal?
Me: No, sir, we do not..
Caller: Oh..
Me: Okay, have a good rest of your day. *hangs up*

I work at a Japanese restaurant.

Last weekend, a patron ask me in all seriousness what part of a cow PORK BELLY is from.

I calmly stated that pork belly is from the belly of a pig (not a cow) and is usually used for bacon in the United States but used in many Asian cultures as well for an alternative for beef or chicken. The customer still didn’t understand so I had to repeat myself several times that pork is from a pig and beef is from a cow.

We all had a good laugh in the kitchen once I repeated the story. The kitchen is also very pleased that I know my pork from beef cuts.

I work at an indoor public market, and I’m usually the only one at my stall. Often, I stand out front and smile at passers-by, but this particular day it was near the end of my shift so I was a bit lost in thought when an older man approached me (I’m a woman in my early twenties).
Man: Smile.
Me: …pardon?
Man: You should smile. You look too serious.
Me: I’m just minding my stall, sir.
Man: Yes, but you should smile!
Me: *stunned silence*
Man: Look, I didn’t mean it in a harsh way! I just think you should smile!
Me: Um…excuse me; I have to go check on something.
I ducked into the back and thankfully he hasn’t come back since.

Me: Hi, what kind of wash would you like today?

Customer:The $12 one.

*stares at me blankly as I await payment*

Customer: Well??? How much does it cost?

Me: $12 sir

Customer: (finally realizing their blunder) oh, well you don’t say?

This happens on a regular basis. We are in the middle of the state, our clientele is locals, and there is no tax on car washes. So the $12 wash would cost exactly $12.
