ha thats funny, its amazing what few seconds more thought will get you! Some of the questions customers ask, could be avoided if they had just thought about it a bit longer!

Well this wasnt by a customer, this was by my cousins g/f, but a few days ago she was asking me about my flying and asked 'so when you fly, do you fly over the sun?' and I looked at her confused and said 'What? Over the sun?' and she said 'erm, yeah?' At this point I was laughing and I think she realised how funny the question was :P

I worked in a shop for a week when I was on holiday (As it was run by my Mum's friend) And I wasn't allowed to use the Chip & Pin thing.. So anyway a customer comes up, I price in her stuff And she hands my Mum's friend her card.. And she put it in the chip and pin machine.. And the woman said "I don't want any cashback" laughing while she said it.. Me and my mum's friend just went silent.. and she said "It was a joke, sorry :oops: " staring at her feet. Lol, She took her stuff and walked out.

I used to work at Poundland and was asked on lots of occasions how much things cost, some even asked while stood in front of a huge sign proclaiming it and the jingle played about everythings a pound at Poundland

Was also asked how much if they bought 2 or 3

Some people just aren't aware of the obvious :D

I work on the checkouts in a supermarket and I get the same jokes all the time. I can't even manage a fake laugh anymore. The most common "joke" we get is:

Me - "Would you like any help with your packing?"

Customer - "No thanks, but I would like help with the paying"

After a year of this I can barely muster a "haha...yeah". I don't mean to be rude but I just can't form the response they're after. Especially during a long miserable shift.

Ha! I used to work on the checkouts in Somerfield and Sainsburys during my Uni days and I had my fair share of that stupid joke! It got to the point where I would just grunt.

And of course there's the old favourite when you're working in waitressing, and you're holding 50 plates in one hand and 30 glasses in the other, and some bright spark says "Now, clap your hands!"! Oh har har. :roll: :)
