I used to temp for Social Security on the switchboard and there were some right nut jobs that used to call. One time all the lines to the advisors went down so the only thing we could do was tell them to try again in a couple of hours. Annoying, but again it was the only thing we could do. The amount of people that swore at me, accusing me of robbing them was quite hilarious. Another woman phoned up saying "i've got three kids, my husband and I don't want to work but we can't survive on what you're giving us, you need to give us more". I nearly laughed her off the phone but I just transferred her to another poor soul. That wound me up loads - get a job, for goodness' sake!!!

Ha! I just had to laugh at these! I used to work as a Deli Assistant in Somerfields and we used to sell individual Baby Bels (the little red cheeses.) One day, a lady came up to the counter and asked me for "5 Baby Bel e*ds" (sorry, didn't want to write it all!) I just looked at her for ages, not beileveing my ears! She stared at me, completely serious and I asked her "Do you not realise what you just asked me for?" she nodded and repeated it. I giggled, she asked me what the problem was, my reply was "You could get arrested for asking for something like that!" Absolutely hirlarious and the best part is she didn't even realise what she said was wrong! Classic comedy moment. Cue fits if laughter in the staff room later that day.

haha this thread is soo funny

it's so true, the things are soo small but after hearing them over and over, geeez!

I work in a shoe shop and once this little old lady came in and started mooching around, bless her. I overheard her say to her husband "they shouldn't be allowed to play this music in here" The song was "play that funky music" she thought funky was a different word, i had to laugh.

I've had someone hold up a pink trainer and ask me "are these girls" =D>

The worse thing was when a lady came for some trainer whitener and asked me if it was cream... i said "no it's white"... "yes BUT is it cream".... "no it's white"... "is it a cream though"... "NO IT'S A WHITE!" after a good 5 minutes saying the same thing i realised she wasn't on about the colour, she was on about how it came out, weather it was a liquid, a CREAM, a spray etc. :oops: OOOOPS

Some customers throw fits when we don't have what they want in stock... like they want me to make them a pair with my own hands :roll:

Ha ha this thread is hilarious. keep them coming! Its not just the customers that can be a bit fruity but sometimes your co workers too. I work at powergen and it is a big company, I work in a tiny section of the company called the IT support team, yet i get my colleagues ringing my department asking me about electric meters, bills not being produced and all sorts. I ask them if they know what department they have come through to and they say yes dont you deal with this sort of thing?? Well NO I am IT support not meter support or billing support!! jeez

Also people ring up and say can you ring british gas for me as there number isnt free like yours!!! ha what a joke.

hahahahahaha some people really do drive you up the wall.

i work in a little computer shop. just out the way of everything not the best thing in the world but it does me alright.so anyway ive had loads of people coming in and telling me to upgrade their computer.

ME"ok then whats it going to be used mainly for"

THEM" it doesnt matter just upgrade it" as they walk out the front door.

so normally i just make it a little better and use the game oblivion as a benchmark. if it runs it its ok. fair enough you might think but apparently not.i had someone come back 5 times saying its still too slow.(it runs one of the most powerhungry games out at the moment what more do you want!!!!??!?!)

so anyway everytime i upgraded it a bit more. and still he came back. so i lost my cool.not to his face though. more to his wallet. i upgraded it with over £4,000 of gear and gave it back to him. so when it came time to pay up he refused to pay for it. i said its either this or what it was before. so he started shouting and screaming saying that he was going to call trading standards about me. i then said he didnt leave adequate instructions or a budget to work to and i had evidence to prove it.(cctv). he then shut up and said i could keep the computer,that he hadnt heard such insolence in his life and that from now on he'd be taking his business to a faceless chain.he didnt actually say faceless chain but he did say pc world. :lol:

so anyway people may drive you up the wall but at least you can mess with their heads.
Nothing worth having comes easily

ha ha thats made my day. Its like at powergen we aask people to read their own meter if they can so that we dnt have to guess what they have used. The never do so we estimate the bill, and they ring us up ranting about how we are thiefs and we are taking their money. I asked one customer if they could just quickly go and read the meter for me, I re-billed the account and it bumped the bill up to over £1000, hilarious. They had to pay because they knew the reading was right as they had just given it to me. sometimes its best to shut up!

Only found out after what he meant because apparently he had been giving dirty calls to everyone for ages. :oops:
