So staying with the idea that I will have a theme of the day today is Tuesday’s Tickles. It will be just stuff I found in the news or somewhere else that gave me a chuckle and thought you would love a chuckle too!

Tampa Florida: A shoplifter, after being confronted with the owner left his ID at the store and ran off. (Sun Sentinel)

Michigan: A robber comes back to Mcdonalds a few months after robbing it to get a meal. He was identified right away  (clumsy crooks)

I used to work in customer service. I am actually pretty good at that job but let me tell you the customer is NOT always right even if you can’t tell them that to their face. Here is a few examples 1 from me and 2 others from other customer service reps)

(Our store matches print ads for other stores in the area.)

Customer: “These are on sale for $4.50 at [other store].”

Me: “Ours are $3.89 for that.”

Customer: “I insist that you ad match this for me.”

Me: “Okay…” (source)


(I’m a cashier at a supermarket and am checking out a customer. All cigarette packages have a warning on them.)

Customer: “I’d like [brand] cigarettes please.”

(I grab a package.)

Customer: “Oh no, not that one. I don’t like the text on it.”

Me: “Oh, you mean the, ‘Smoking is deadly’ text?

Customer: “Yes, get me one with a different text.”

(I grab another package.)

Me: “Okay… how about, ‘Smoking leads to a slow painful death’?”

Customer: “No, I don’t like that one either.”

Me: “Is, ‘Smoking increases the chance to get lung cancer’ fine, then?”

Customer: “Ah yes, that one is good!” (source)


Ok and here is one I ran into personally:

(I used to work at a rental car place. OOHHH The stories I could tell.  A customer came up to the counter with a non transferable credit card that was his wife’s card)

Me: “I am not able to use this card because (ABC credit card company) does not allow you to use a card not in your name.”

Customer: “It’s my wife’s card it is just fine”

Me: “(ABC credit card company) is VERY strict on this and I cannot use this card. Do you have another card?”

Customer: (getting REALLY angry) “I USE IT ALL OVER THE COUNTRY!!! I have had no problems until here”

Me: “Sorry sir I am not able to do it. It is a crime to do it.”

Customer: (slams his fits on counter yells at me and then leaves)

#2 Customer that was waiting in line behind 1st customer:  “Good thing you did not use that card and make an exception for him. I work for ABC credit card company and I am the person who investigates and arrest those who commit the fraud. I was about to reveal myself to him when he marched off!”




  1. Those are funny! I worked at a bank on summer and had to explain what deposit meant a few times. It’s kind of sad!

  3. Too funny! You should have a blog devoted to these bloopers or out of the mouths of customers.
