    Best Customer, No Question

    | MA, USA | Awesome Workers, Employees, Geography

    Associate: “Hi, any questions?”

    Me: “No, just browsing.”

    Associate: “Really? No questions? What’s my favorite color? What’s the capital of Iceland?”

    Me: “Reykjavik.”

    Associate: *high-fives me* “You are the first person to get that! You’re my favorite customer!”

    (Gotta say, I left the store feeling pretty good after that.)

    Flights Of Fancy

    | South Africa | Coworkers, Extra Stupid, Geography, Tourists & Travel, Transportation

    (I am a pilot. On this particular overseas flight, a very common route, about 90% of the flight is over the ocean. An air hostess comes in with my breakfast.)

    Hostess: “Good morning. Ooh, it’s quite bright in here, isn’t it?”

    Me: “Yeah. Good weather today.”

    Hostess: *leaning over to look out of the cockpit window* “Oh, wow, we’re over the ocean!”

    (She puts down my breakfast and leaves the cockpit. My co-pilot and I look at each other.)

    Co-Pilot: “Did she just say what I think she said?”

    Me: “Yeah. For a moment I wasn’t sure I heard that right, either. If we weren’t over the ocean, I would be seriously concerned about where we were going to end up!”

    Incontinent Telephone Service

    | USA | Employees, Extra Stupid, Geography, Technology, Tourists & Travel

    (I am planning a trip to France. I call my cellular provider to find out what I need to do to make calls while I’m there.)

    Me: “I’m planning a trip to Europe, and I need to know what I need to do to make calls while I’m there.”

    Rep: “I’ve looked over the list of countries where you can make calls, and Europe isn’t on the list.”

    Me: “I’m going to France.”

    Rep: “Yes, that’s on the list.”

    Hasn’t Cracked His Da Vinci Code

    | Howell, NJ, USA | At The Checkout, Employees, Geography, History, Theme Of The Month

    (I am in line with my dad as the cashier is ringing up our items.)

    Cashier: *to my dad* “You look foreign. Are you from here?”

    Dad: “Nope, I came here from Italy in the ‘60s.”

    Cashier: “Oh, wow, that’s amazing. Did they even have planes then?”

    Dad: “Well, I came here on a boat named ‘Leonardo da Vinci.’”

    Cashier: “WOW, you knew Leonardo da Vinci?!”

    Dad: “Yeah, he was a great guy!”

    Can’t State This Enough

    | USA | Employees, Extra Stupid, Geography

    (My family and I take a vacation to Block Island, off the coast of Rhode Island. Rhode Island is a very small state, but a state nonetheless. While out kayaking, my dad loses his wallet, including his credit cards. When we get home he calls the credit card company to cancel his card.)

    Rep: “Okay, sir, where were you when you lost your credit card?”

    Dad: “I was on Block Island. That’s a part of Rhode Island.”

    Rep: “Thank you, sir. And what state is Rhode Island in?”
