Folks Are Sharing Their Experience With The Dumbest Customers Ever

Customers can never be wrong. It doesn't matter whether they claimed to have a soup coupon in their basket but can't find it now, or if they forgot to order their pizza without tomatoes until it was delivered to their table. Dealing with customers who appear to have left their common sense at home is one of the sad factors of working in any customer service position. Every employee in the retail or service industries has stories about clients who should have thought before speaking, from making irrational demands to asking foolish inquiries.
Recently, Twitter user Westernunion2k posted an update, “Customers will say [stuff] like ‘Uhh it's asking me to remove my card?’” that started a discussion in which many other workers shared instances from their careers in which dealing with consumers caused them to want to facepalm. You can read a portion of the chat below; after reading it, tell us in the comments what the silliest thing a customer or client has ever said has been.
