Time-waster of the day: November 10, 2010

Word to the wise: contrary to many successful retail chains’ fundamental mantra, the customer can be wrong.  Occasionally, he will be very, very wrong.   Not Always Right documents the (sadly) frequent interactions between sales clerks, customer service staff, and shop owners and their downright moronic customers.  One interchange we found to be particularly funny involved a tourist and a witty barista in a Dutch coffee shop:

(A lost-looking tourist enters the shop.)

Tourist: “Do any of y’all speak American?”

Me: *joking* “I’m sorry, but we can only speak English.”

Tourist: “Okay, sorry to bother you.” *leaves*

Yikes.
