End User Phrase of the Day

What the heck is a EUPOTD? it stands for 'End User Phrase Of The Day'! Here we are looking for small crazy things that customers have said to us during the day. As of today we have 19202 EUPOTD's.

19202. MePOTD: "You left Gmail for AOL?" (said when the customer asked me to change her email address on file -- she replied, "yes, I did" in a tone that implied "doesn't everyone?") [By :Mushroom / 2014-12-15] [Top]

  • If that isn't chopping up a lifeboat to make a raft I don't know what is. I am soooo glad I'm retiring and don't have to deal with this shit anymore. -Gromit
  • 19201. MePOTD: "I've dealt with users so long I sleep with a facepalm." After my wife asked why I sleep with my forehead on my hand. [By :PolarCoyote / 2014-12-02] [Top]

  • I sleep with my hands in fists. Hmm. -figglywig
  • 19200. If I bought all three of these coats online, after I try them on and return two, can you give me the sale price on the one I keep? [By :Mushroom / 2014-11-24] [Top]

  • ::Twitch:: I can't even process that level of stupid... -skippytpodar
  • Why sure. What happens is that you buy all 3 then ask for a refund on the other 2. Just make sure you fill out the Eye-Dee-10-Tea form on our web site. Customer service may only be able to help you AFTER the purchase is made or it won't show up in the system. -Necros
  • 19199. Could you send that to the store? (Sure, which one?) I'll be in Seattle or Salt Lake City. (So which should I send it to?) I don't know, I haven't heard where my friend will be. So will it be ready at the store when I get there? [By :Mushroom / 2014-11-24] [Top]

  • Sure, I get one going for each store. I'll just need your CC number. -Stryker One
  • 19198. The person with a name like Brenda Freida Davis who nonchalently said her initials are BFD. Maybe it was the moment but I totally couldn't keep from laughing. [By :Mushroom / 2014-11-12] [Top]

  • The neighboring town here is Burnaby. So one day when I'm passing through, there's a great screaming of sirens, honking of horns and flashing of lights as a fire engine drives by, and as it passes I can't help noticing that the side of the truck is decorated with a big BFD. -chazz
  • "Got a fire? BFD, eh?" I've been there a few times, and went thrifting in New Westminster once but didn't know you at the time. -Mushroom
  • She's kind of a big deal. -AmazingKreskin
  • One other thing: Burnaby is a "drive-through" town with tons of commuter traffic headed for Richmond and Vancouver... so the Burnaby FD has a lot of extra attention-getters on their trucks to try and force their way through the uncaring herd. So not only is it BFD, but on this one truck there are about twelve dome lights, twenty of those white and red strobelight things, and two sirens... and it's still a BFD. -chazz
  • 19197. MePOTD: "Okay, you'll get something Long and Black tonight." I was selling a pair of pants. [By :Mushroom / 2014-11-02] [Top]

  • 19196. me: What can I do for you today? him: Nothing. me: Nothing? him: I was almost done placing an order when the call dropped twenty minutes ago, so could you have the person I was talking to call me back in half an hour to finish the order? [By :Mushroom / 2014-11-02] [Top]

  • Every remote control application has its limits. Maybe one day I'll build or buy a telepresence robot that can replace a PSU... -chazz
  • I just want a robot that will replace the EU. -concept14
  • we can always hope: http://ars.userfriendly.org/cartoons/?id=20021103 -madonnac
  • Last week I had a similar call. A customer's "Internet is down". After the usual fruitless troubleshooting I told her I'd be over to fix it. Obviously reluctant to actually PAY me for anything, she said "Can't you just remote in and fix it?" Now, I'm semi-retired these days and really can't be arsed with this sort of shit anymore, so I said "Just think that one through, will you? I can't think of a way of replying that doesn't sound insulting." She took the hint. -Gromit
  • 19192. "My son drank the fluid out of one of your green ice blocks. Will he be okay? The package says it's non-toxic." No, he'll be retarded all his life and he gets it from his mother -- we're an online sporting good store, not Poison Control, whom you should have called. [By :Mushroom / 2014-10-19] [Top]
