Are you serious?

Surely you can't be serious. You and fleur need to grow up and stop whining every time someone hurts your poor wittle feelings. Grow a thicker skin, it'll be be beneficial to you in all walks of life.

Sliced my finger open just above the nail? Blame Canada.

I usually get it from people who bring stolen/lost phones to me to activate. I try to activate it, my system won't let me because it shows up as lost or stolen, and then they try to spin a long, convoluted story about how they got it. And then they don't listen when I say that regardless of their story, I can't activate it.

It happens to me sometimes too.

It's kind of weird. Using Firefox and Win XP.

Even worse, the ones who come right after close for me. Especially when they come in right as I'm closing down the kiosk, and I've already sealed the deposit bag-and they expect me to reopen the register so they can buy a $10 item. Yeah, no, sorry. Come back tomorrow. But it's only 7:05! Yeah, and I was supposed to be gone 5 minutes ago.

We don't do returns on anything but phones, fortunately. :)

This probably won't apply as much to the call center reps here, but it sometimes happens at our kiosks. Occasionally we'll get people who don't want to give their names. If they're just getting an accessory and not a plan we don't really care, so we make up a name. I've seen Luke Skywalker, Donald Duck, and more on the sales log. I myself have rang someone up as Victor Von Doom. Brings a little bit of levity to the ...

When I worked in a call center, it was pretty much the same way. So boring. My shift was from 5-12 in the morning, though, so that made it somewhat bearable as it was slow, went by fast, and I had pretty much the whole day to do whatever.

I can only play Angry Birds for so long before I turn it off in frustration. And I have DKC2 on there. :D

LOL, that's pretty much what I do. Stand to the sides or in front of the kiosk, greet people, and play solitaire or Angry Birds on my phone. I have a SNES emulator on there but the controls are hard to use, so that doesn't get much use.

Please stop...

...bringing me stolen phones trying to get me to activate them, customers. Seriously. I get suspicious anytime someone comes up with a phone and doesn't really give me a straight answer about whether or not they have service currently or not. Or they say they don't but I can see texts have come in to the phone recently. So then I check to see if I can activate it. And they give me a weird look and leave in ...

Lately I've been on PS a lot, though it's slow on the weekends. Other than that I read comics and watch movies on my phone. The only issue is I run out of comics too slow. I need to get like a whole series. I'll also sit and play solitaire and chess on the computer occasionally, although I try not to sit at the computer for long periods of time. There's a camera focused on the computer area linked ...

I had something like that happen. Lady stepped in to the grocery store where my kiosk is, talking on speakerphone. Not too unusual. What was unusual was where she had her phone-right in her cleavage. It was...odd.

Back when I worked at a bookstore I had a lady come up, and when I looked up her discount card it said her name was Dial Kitchens. I initially thought maybe it was a company card, but when she handed me her ID, it was on there too. Made me think of Dial soap. Not necessarily a bad name, just really random.

Basically the guy that threatens you with bodily harm, whether directly or by saying, "I better leave or I'm gonna get in trouble/go to jail/get arrested." Yeah, dude, hit me, because that's gonna solve your issue.

I gotta disagree with you about the Southerners. I live in SC and in my experience, Southern hospitality is mostly a myth. Not only are most of the people here rude, but they can be very, very ignorant as well. And I'm not just talking in a work capacity, I mean I see this every day in every possible situation.
