If you work in a customer service position, you know that dealing with ignorance and idiocy is an unavoidable part of the job. There are always people in the general public who have unrealistic expectations, don't appear to be operating in reality, or don't want to bother figuring out basic things for themselves. While these exhausting experiences gradually turn into a part of the daily grind, it is unavoidable that you will have interactions with customers that'll leave your mind numb to stupidity. Many frustrated and taken-for-granted employees share their stories on social media, where any discomfort or horror they felt at the time can now be shared with others, many of whom understand. @WrittenByHanna asked people to share their most bizarre customer interactions, writing, "What's the most outlandish thing a customer has ever asked you?"
