    Not Warming Up To The Service

    | NH, USA | Employees, Extra Stupid, Food & Drink, Lazy/Unhelpful

    (I have ordered a large cheese pizza and a two-liter bottle of soda. When the delivery person shows up he only has the insulated pizza carrying bag.)

    Me: “Uhm… I had ordered a bottle of soda, too?”

    Driver: “Yeah, I got it.”

    (With that, he proceeds to take my now lukewarm bottle of coke and my now lukewarm pizza out of the same insulated bag.)

    Me: “Why would you put a cold bottle of coke and a hot pizza in the same insulated bag?”

    Driver: “Well, it’s easier to carry that way.”

    Me: “Don’t you think it defeats the purpose of using an insulated bag if you put hot and cold things in it together?”

    Driver: “But… it’s easier to carry!”

    It’s Credit-Crunch Time

    | Minneapolis, MN, USA | Coworkers, Extra Stupid, Money

    (I do most of the bill collecting calls at our company. I call people many times to warn them that if they don’t pay by a certain date we send them to collections. A call comes in from a person we already sent messages to, which goes to my coworker, who is not the brightest crayon.)

    Coworker: *puts the caller on hold* “So, this person says they told you they were sending a check and thought you would stop them from going to collections.”

    Me: “Yeah, I remember them. I told them I can’t stop them from being sent. If they had sent a check the day I talked to them it would have gotten here before the cut off so they obviously didn’t send it.”

    Coworker: *confused* “Well, now they want to know why they should pay it if we already sent them.”

    Me: “Are you just telling me that’s what they said, or are you asking me to explain to you why they should still pay the bill?”

    Coworker: “Well… I mean… Why would they pay it if we already sent them?”

    Me: “Do you seriously need me to explain to you how credit works and why it’s in a persons best interest to pay what they owe?”

    (My coworker sits there staring at her desk like she’s trying to remember something very important. I can see the hamster is dying from exhaustion on the wheel. Then she slowly says:)

    Coworker: “Sooo… if… they… don’t pay… that’s still… bad?”

    Me: “I’m going to take the call from here. I seriously hope you don’t have a credit card.”

    His IQ Is Under 18

    | CA, USA | At The Checkout, Employees, Extra Stupid

    (It is 2013. I am 20 years old and I stop buy the gas station store on my way back from a walk.)

    Me: “Can I get a $2 scratcher ticket, please.”

    Cashier: “Can I see ID?”

    Me: “Sure!” *shows ID that clearly states my birthday and in big letters: ’18 in 2011′*

    Cashier: *stares blankly* “You are over 18?”

    Me: “Yes. I was born in 1993.”

    Cashier: *looks down at ID again* “So you are over 18?”

    Me: “Yes. I am 20. I turned 18 two years ago.”

    Cashier: *looks at me really confused and back down at my ID*

    Me: *slightly frustrated* “I was born in 1993, it is 2013. It has been 20 years.”

    (By this point another customer has gotten behind me in line and witnessed the exchange.)

    Cashier: *blankly* “So you are over 18?”

    Next Customer Behind Me: “Dude, she is clearly over 18! Just give her the d*** ticket already!”

    (After looking at my ID again and handing back my ID really tentatively, the cashier finally sells me the ticket. I grab it and as I rush out. I mutter thanks to the other customer. I am guessing the cashier was either having a long day, or was just really bad at simple math.)

    Double The Price, Half The IQ

    | Birmingham, England, UK | At The Checkout, Employees, Extra Stupid, Themed Giveaway

    (I’m buying a jacket, priced at £55. The cashier rings up my purchase.”

    Cashier: “That’s £110, please.”

    Me: “Oh, the tag says £55.”

    Cashier: “Oh yes! I scanned it twice!”

    Me: *after waiting a few seconds* “So?”

    Cashier: “So that’s £110, please!”

    Me: “It should be £55. You’ve charged for two.”

    Cashier: “I scanned it twice.”

    Me: “I know. You’re charging me for two jackets, but I only have one.”

    Cashier: “Oh. OH! Do you want me to get you another jacket?”

    Me: “Thank you, but I think you’d better get me a supervisor instead.”

    (Unfortunately the supervisor was just as confused as the cashier!)

    Can’t Get Pasteurized Past Her Eyes

    | Jerusalem, Israel | Employees, Extra Stupid, Food & Drink, Themed Giveaway

    (My wife is a big fan of specialty cheeses, and she likes when I surprise her with new ones she’s never tried before. She’s currently pregnant, so I need to be careful not to buy her unpasteurized cheese.)

    Me: *pointing to a random cheese I’ve never heard of* “Is that cheese pasteurized?”

    Deli Worker: “It’s goat cheese.”

    Me: “Yes, but is it pasteurized?”

    Deli Worker: “It’s goat cheese.”

    Me: “I know it’s goat cheese. I’m asking if it’s pasteurized or not.”

    Deli Worker: *stares blankly*

    Me: “Some cheeses are pasteurized, others aren’t. I need to know if that one is or not.”

    Deli Worker: “I don’t know what ‘pasteurized’ is. It’s goat cheese.”

    (I give up and just buy some brie, because unlike most of the cheeses in the display I could read its ingredient label through the glass. How somebody who’s been selling cheeses for years doesn’t know what pasteurization means, I have no idea!)
