I work at a pizza place. Had a call one night, and went through their order and asked if they needed anything else. This is what I heard:
Woman: "Yeah, do you have cheesesticks?"
Woman: "Now, do those have cheese on them?"
I don't think I laughed on the phone, but then, I'm not too sure.
I work for a cab company, we deal with the stupidest of the stupid. One day I aswer the phone:
Woman: "I'd like a taxi"
Me: "Where do you need the cab?"
Woman "At my home."
Me: "Where is your home?"
Woman: "I don't give out my address."
Lady: Excuse me, but I have a problem.
Me: Whats up?
Lady: I think this sour cream is bad.
Me: How so?
Lady: It tastes really sour.
Me: Um... wait, uh.... *ahem* What, what just happened there?
Lady: Well I, um... oh.
God, I fucking hate people.
I remember my days as a pet shop worker a few years back. Everyday, you would run into one customer whose level of retardation was beyond comprehension. Like the time some woman called, and wanted to ask if we had a certain type of pet food:
Customer: Hi, I want to know what kind of hamster food you guys have. I'm looking for one type, but I don't know what it's called.
Me: (sums up what kind of hamster food we carry)
Customer: I'm still not sure.
Me: Okay, what does the food look like? What's in it?
Customer: I don't know. My daughter feeds the hamster, not me.
Me: What did the package look like?
Customer: Oh! It had a hamster on it.

Not what I had in mind when I ordered an Italian gondolier. This is literally just a tiny toy. Needless to say, the Italian businessmen were not impressed and I looked like a damn fool. We lost the pizza pie account and will have to lay off half our factory.
Time to applaud the man who applauds in a loop until the end of time.
